Although the season is over, the ROTB Roundtable series isn't. The Cardinals have managed to stay in the news, although they are done for the season. With all this news comes questions, and the ROTB Writing Staff took their shot at answering three of them.
Hit the jump for their answers, and don't forget to answer the questions yourself in the comments below!
1) Rumors have it that Todd Haley will be returning to the Cardinals. Do you think this is a good idea, and how would this affect the team/players?
Tyler Nickel: I think Todd Haley returning to the Cardinals would be great for the offense and the growth of Kevin Kolb and John Skelton. The offense often looked stale under the playcalling of Mike Miller this past season and I think that Haley would add a new dimension and some ingenuity to it.
JoeCB1991: Great idea, it will make the playcalling more creative, and Haley is great with receivers so it will help all the young guys we have.
Jesse Reynolds: While I am not as high on Haley as others are I think anything we do to try and improve the offense is important. Miller wasn't getting it done (though he was in a tough position juggling two QB's). Where will Haley be? What will his job be? Will we demote Miller? A lot of questions yet to be answered.
Khodder: I don't really think the impact of this move is going to be all that large. The offense is still going to be overseen and be mostly the brainchild of Ken Whisenhunt. Haley is still raw as a playcaller (though admittedly more experienced than Miller) having only done it for two years in Arizona before moving onto KC. The biggest thing that I beleive Haley will bring to this team is his background as a receivers coach. It was his work that allowed Breaston to shine here, it was his work that got Fitzgerald to take an extra step forward from being one of the best to being the best in the NFL. It is he that is going to be working with the likes of Roberts, Doucet, Sampson and Williams and hopefully developing a quality receiving corps.
Cdeveau: All I have from the Todd Haley era are warm fuzzies. This era happened to coincide with the Kurt Warner era. How much of the warm fuzzy feeling I have for Todd Haley is KW’s doing? I cannot tell. I do know he drives people. He is fiery and passionate. And he (according to Steve Breaston) gets the most out of his players. I do know that the Card’s offense the past few seasons has been dull and predictable. If nothing else, his return would be an attempt to alter that style of play call.
