The Cardinals are TANKING!!!

Not that he was a world beater, but they just released Colt McCoy. The starter is on the PUP list, they only have a rookie who struggled, and Dobbs, who they just traded a 6th for him and a 7th, not exactly quality. Kyler Murray will start on the PUP, and it looks like they want to move on from him. Might be tough, they just signed him to a huge extension that just starts to kick in this year.

I think what he really means is "I don't want to jinx it... but you all know I want to announce Caleb Williams as our starter"

I don't think they could ever do it with all the money tied up in Murray. I mean that team would be crippled for years.

They sure are tanking.. but funny thing is some other team would end up getting first overall pick.

 

It's never easy to predict the worst team. Cardinals might even win a couple of games in their division alone.

 

Last year, Texans were tanking, and everyone thought they'd get the #1 pick right until the final few minutes of their final game!

The Cards also have the Texan's #1 pick next year as well, so they can be sure to get into the top two. How are they going to do this with Murray? If they trade him they get a monster cap hit, if they cut him even worse. I have no idea why they chose to give a guy and extension 2 years before they had to, all the while he had such a bad work ethic that they had to put "film room time" in his contract..

With so many QB needy teams around, and with Trey Lance going for a mid round pick, if the Falcons or Bucs or Seahawks or even the Patriots falter this year, I can definitely see Kyler Murray being shipped out.

Looks like the colts are tanking also.

1) No changes on an OL that was terrible last year except for the coach

2) Trade your best corner for a 5th round draft choice

3) The cornerback room has no experience except for Moore

4) Starting a very inexperienced QB

5) Trying to trade your best running back

6) The WR room is about the same as last year except for Downs who is a rookie

7) A very inexperienced coaching staff

The Cardinals are in a COMPLETE rebuild this season.

 

Can't say they are "tanking" - but - they are making some ??? decisions with a first-year head coach in the building.

 

Additionally - he is a defensive-minded coach taking over from an offensive-minded coach.  Should be interesting to watch.

    • Yea my bad, i finished it and lazily didnt feel like changing it before submitting. 🥴 I will probably make another change or 2 and repost a final version by draft day anyways, so…
    • One thing I have never done is meet Peyton Manning. I have been to around 50 home games during my Fandom from 1987-2013 regarding going to games. I met Jim Harbaugh and got his autograph when I went to the Chargers game in 1996. He chatted with me for around 2 or 3 minutes. Called me Bud over and over and was so nice and he kept smiling at my mom  . I was only 25 then. Just going to the Masters alone had to be a treat but talking to Peyton had to be the cherry on top. Great stuff man.
    • I just thought I would take this opportunity to brag a bit about the fact that I had the opportunity to chat with Peyton at the Masters last week for about 5 minutes.  Truly a bucket list experience and I must say, he has the Southern Hospitality that one might expect but wow- did not expect to run into him and it was quite the experience.  It just had to be the one place left on earth where cell phones are banned, so no picture opportunity unfortunately.   I told Peyton that my first Colts experience was riding to Buffalo in a blizzard when the Colts were 14-0 and they benched him only to lose that game. I said thanks for my first Colts experience being one where he was riding the pine.  He laughed, apologized to me and said that if it was up to him he would have been checking down in that snow storm for 4 quarters.  He thanked me for the support, and was asking me a bit about myself, where I am from, etc.  Quite the gentleman! I think it was obligatory for him to be nice to patrons while he was wearing his Green Jacket, but none the less....a great experience meeting a childhood hero. Lynn Swann walked up to us while we were talking and shook Peyton's hand.  I joked that now was the perfect time for a 10 yard slant- and then slid into the bushes like Homer Simpson with humility.    Unforgettable experience everyone!   Would love to hear some of your Peyton stories from over the years, since it is a bit of a slow time of year before the draft! Let it fly Colts fans  
    • I agree.  I think this is another one of those over-hyped QB classes that will probably never perform to the level of the hype. But -- teams still need a quarterback.  And will convince themselves that that must take one of these quarterbacks.  That it's the only solution to their problem.  If I was forced to choose, I would probably go with Heisman winner Jayden Daniels.  I'm concerned that Caleb Williams may have some personality issues to go with his lack of measurables, even though he shows strong ability to improvise.  Drake Maye has the measurables, but I have questions regarding the level of opposition playing at UNC.  It's not the same as playing the equivalent of the Crimson Tide every single week.  JJ McCarthy is "good".  And he's been successful.  He led his team to a BCS championship.  And?  I see him in the same mold as AJ McCarron.  Supremely successful in college, but not good enough to be The Guy in the pros.
    • Right. KC was also a perennial playoff team prior to Mahomes taking over. The Colts are a fringe playoff team at best, until we see if AR can lift the roster.    And to your point, Veach took over the summer before Mahomes’ rookie year. Hard to compare how KC’s FO approach with Dorsey at GM (for several years) vs. when Veach took over. It seems like Ballard has been more like Dorsey and Veach might just operate differently from both of them.    If Ballard wanted to follow the Veach KC model, he sure waited a long time to do it once Luck retired.
