You name it, sinking Cardinals will need it

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- From top to bottom, the Arizona Cardinals coaches are evaluating what the biggest needs are to set the program back on track. A list of what they don't need would be shorter.

You name it, Arizona needs it -- quarterback, pass rusher, offensive lineman, wide receiver, inside linebacker. The Cardinals, in their worst season in at least four years, are looking to upgrade at nearly every position, while at the same time deciding whether to try to re-sign wide receiver Steve Breaston and right guard Deuce Lutui. Both become free agents after the season ends over the New Year's weekend.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said everybody's performance in the last two games -- at home against Dallas on Christmas night, then at San Francisco on Jan. 2 -- will watched closely with an eye toward the future.
