That is a lot of if's...
It is not just the quality of a GM but stability at the position... I see this as a positive because even an average GM who is afforded stability can garner positive results
The team already feels he can identify and acquire talent. That is why he was the GM in the first place.
Sure when you are first hiring a GM you want them to be able to do that but that isn't the case here.
This is a clear sign that Michael trusts that Keim can execute the organization's goals.
Further, the length of it sends a clear signal that they aren't even doubting he is the right person.
I trust that Michael Bidwill wants to win and wants to continue to define the Arizona Cardinals as a "great organization" and since Michael clearly trusts the path that Keim is on, that is good enough for me.
Wrong. Michael became Pres/Owner in 2007. Graves was was GM from 2003-2012. Five years he had Michael’s trust.
We didn't HAVE to re-sign him, though. Why bother giving him an extension when there ARE all those question marks about him?
Keim has been the best GM the Cardinals have ever had. Period. He's been with the organization through a lot of the lean years, and much like Michael, I think it drives the both of them to to never stand pat, and constantly seek out ways to move the team forward.
I think he's done a heck of a good job and am glad he's been rewarded for it. I'm also looking forward to seeing who he brings in to play QB in 2018.
He brought in Carson and got a ton more out of him than any of us imagined. I'd call that hitting it out of the park. If his follow-up QB selection bombs, folks are ready to toss SK out of here despite 20 very loyal years with the organization, the last five of which were the most successful in franchise history??? That's crazy. It seems people are already bashing him for his next QB before we've even gotten to the first OTA. Steve and Michael have both said they'll be aggressive in finding the next QB. They've given me no reason to doubt them and frankly, I'm looking forward to seeing how it all plays out.
Like David Johnson?
So a big school stud is guaranteed to make an impact?
Nothing is guaranteed in the draft. All about probability, and it's more probable that a prospect from a big school has a higher chance of succeeding. Obviously that doesn't mean you discount smaller school prospects, but you really have to do a lot more evaluating with them. Keim takes more small school prospects than any other GM...I'd venture to say.
Can you pick a big school player drafted after Williams that had much of an impact in 2017? Just curious. I looked the draft list and didn't see anyone that stood out to me. Only one drafted after that stood out was small school Tarek Cohen.
Rams picked two in 2017 with new Regime - one, Cooper Kupp from EWU was a major part of their success.
Dede Westbrook, Samaje Perine, Desmond King, and some decent TE's also. Can't really compare Williams and Kupp either...Kupp was insanely polished and had tremendous success at EWU. Williams was considered a 5th or 6th round pick...If i remember correctly.
