Arizona Cardinals Re-Open Talks With Todd Haley

Former Kansas City Chiefs HC met again with Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt and general manager Rod Graves about the open coaching position. Jason La Canfora first broke the news earlier today.

Talks with Haley broke down after offensive coordinating jobs opened up elsewhere in the league. Arizona then interviewed former Oakland Raiders HC Hue Jackson and former Pittsburgh Steelers OC Bruce Arians. It seems that Haley is the man the Cardinals are courting heavily seeing as they have waited to hire someone else, and have only interviewed two other people that we know of. My own personal opinion is that Haley is the man the Cardinals bring in. He knows this team and has built a strong relationship with these players and coaches. It seems this time around, with no other big time positions open, unless the Giants fire their OC, he will come to Arizona.

If this indeed does happen it will be interesting to see how Haley does with Kolb and Skelton. I'm not starting a QB controversy, or stating which QB I prefer, but I think Haley and Kolb will bash heads a few times, but they'll make out their differences and Haley will turn Kolb into our QB. Skelton has the talent and skill set, but he deserves to start, or play elsewhere in the league.

On another note, Beanie Wells is going under the knife. It appears to be a minor surgery and won't effect his return for next season.
