    Here's an excerpt from an article on the Green Bay Press Gazette web site. The Cardinals will have a guard shifting over to right tackle, which could provide some opportunities for Kampman to pressure the QB. Also, it was mentioned elsewhere that a rookie (2nd round draft pick) will be starting at right guard for the Cardinals. Are you listening, Ryan Pickett?

    Here's the piece:

    The Cardinals' biggest problem all year has been its offensive line, and its worst lineman has been right tackle Oliver Ross. That's bad for a team with a left-handed quarterback in Matt Leinart, whose blind side is protected by the right tackle. That has to excite Aaron Kampman, the Packers' left defensive end, and anyone else (KGB? Brady Poppinga?) defensive coordinator Bob Sanders might line up on that side occasionally. Green, however, reportedly is benching Ross and moving left guard Reggie Wells to right tackle. There's obviously some desperation in the move, and regardless of who's playing there, you have to think the Packers will attack that as a weak spot. Even if Green gives his right tackle help with a tight end or running back, that means fewer players in pass routes, and perhaps other rushers (KGB on the right side, perhaps) left one-on-one. Arizona left tackle Leonard Davis is mammoth (6-foot-6, 365 pounds) but might have trouble with KGB's speed. So Leinart's ability to function under pressure in only his fourth NFL start will be critical to the Cardinals' chances.

    Kampman played a good game, either getting or being a part of 2 sacks.

    You thought AJ was all over the place? That's interesting because the only LB I noticed yesterday was Barnett

    Kampmann just happens to lead the league in sacks with 8.5.

    Why should Al Harris be jealous of his contract?
