Defense, not Matt Leinart, biggest question for Arizona

Posted: Updated:

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Matt Leinart and Derek Anderson are getting the most public attention in training camp.

They are quarterbacks, after all, on a team that has lost Kurt Warner.

A bigger question mark at the Arizona Cardinals training camp, though, is the defense, where departures and arrivals have led to a personnel shakeup in a unit that surrendered 90 points in two playoff games last season.

Bill Davis, who's entering his second season as defensive coordinator, says the challenge is blending those players into a cohesive unit that's an improvement from a year ago.

Some of the big names on the defense, notably Pro Bowlers Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Darnell Dockett, made their presence felt on Sunday when the players donned pads for a practice forced indoors by wet weather.
