I know that we started the season at 4-0 and actually pulled out some games that we should have lost. The problem is, and I don't think that this is any secret, there is a real chance that the Cardiac Cards could flat line and end up on the tail end of at least a 6 game losing streak. This would be unacceptable and would have to end up with serious consequences; one being the GM Rod Graves has to go, two being the HC Whiz and his offencive henchmen(Miller and Grimm) would also have to kick rocks. Now the question becomes who is the Arizona Cardinals new head coach? Well this is a great question, Sando wrote an article today that covered a man that the west is used to and his name is Mike Holmgren, he has ties to Arizona in that he owned vacation homes in the area. Holmgren has been at the helm for the Cleveland Browns and with a 10-29 record and going, is this what we are looking for? NO, a 65 year old power hungry coach is not going to work.
There is good news in this whole scenario, we don't have to look far for a perfect candidate that could step in and make a perfect fit for the Arizona Cardinals. Say it with me now-"Ray Horton for Head Coach"! This could be an ideal situation for us or it could end up being the demise of our franchise for the next decade. Two scenarios can happen here, first we keep Whiz go 8-8 and hope that we can get back to the glory days but we lose the best D coordinator that we have ever had and the strength of our team. The second is that we can grab our cajones and ax Whiz, hire Ray Horton shift our mind set towards the defence(ie. Like when the Steelers hired Tomlin over Whiz and Grimm) get an offensive guy that will keep up with the league trends and start fresh.
This would be a big deal but in my eyes this change needs to be made unless something very drastic occurs. In Horton I trust, do you?
