Bruce Arians, Arizona Cardinals -- With Arians at the helm in place of Chuck Pagano last year, the Colts threw the ball deep downfield with regularity. Arians changed addresses during the offseason, but he's still the same man he was in Indy and Pittsburgh, where he was the offensive coordinator before joining the Colts. Look for Carson Palmer to put the ball up a ton this year, especially since he has two big receivers on the outside in Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd. Believe it or not, the NFC West just might be the most exciting division in football this season.
