You guys are overreacting. There are over 20 teams that would love to be in the position that the Cardinals are in.

KK is going nowhere. Trading Murray is insane. We need to revamp the O-line, add some secondary pieces, and come back next year with DHOP.

It wasn’t a bad year
People saying to trade Murray need to lay off mind altering substances. Same franchise who has provided us the Skletons and Max Halls for decades drafts the ROY and two time Pro Bowler in his first 3 years and these guys demand more. He had a bad game which sucks but trading him would be beyond idiotic.

If we were coming off 4 or 5 wins and crapped the bed in the playoff game that’s one thing.
But we didn’t. The last two years we got worse as the season wound down.
I don’t know how anybody can think next year would be any different.
It’s an epic collapse. EPIC.

Kyler played like a high school Qb in his first game. He didn’t get any help from his coach. Kyler needs to be made to play the game like they do in the NFL. This isn’t college. I think he’s been brought in here and was told to play football the way he likes it.
He needs a new system. He has regressed. He constantly fails to find the open receiver. He holds the ball to long. He doesn’t move off the spot soon enough. He takes too many sacks trying to use his athleticism. He still falls for yards loss instead of throwing the ball away.

That being said, you don’t fire the player, you fire the coach.

Getting rid of Kliff is justified. I would bring everyone else back. You don't burn the house down because of a broken window.
Totally. You should continue to let Keim make OL picks until Murray's Kidneys splatter and retires..Totally go for it.

Murray is the best QB they drafted since moving to Arizona.

Also For three years,. Murray folded like a cheap coat when it matters. Great QBs don't have 2-7,2-5 and 1-6 ending to their seasons.

Murray has a ceiling closer to his high floor.

Be careful of kneejerk reactions.

KK led your team to the playoffs in the toughest division in football. He and Kyler were rookies in the playoffs and the speed/intensity goes up another level come playoff time., and they didn't look ready for it. Kingsbury needs to make better adjustments in the 2nd half of the season when his scheme has been figured out by opposing defensive coordinators.

Well, it took the COLTS 6 seasons under Peyton Manning before they won a playoff game, and there was no shortage of armchair experts saying that he was a bust, couldn't win the big one, and that they should clean house.
Ah, I see you have reverted back to trolling posters. Tell me, then, what about this team/coaching staff inspires any confidence in you that we are trending in this direction? That KM or KK are trending that way?

No doubt there was someone like you on the Colts board back in the day asking the same question.

Disagreeing is not by definition trolling, no more than a host of superheated adjectives gives validity to a case.

Yep, failing to answer the question is your MO. You've got nothing when asked to bolster your "opinion." I quote that word because I don't think it was your opinion, but a disingenuous potshot post. You used to do this a lot, then you backed off and actually became a cool, chill poster. Is it the frustration from last night/down the stretch catching up to you? Because I can definitely understand if that is the case.

It wasn’t a bad year when you look at it overall. I suppose the good offset the bad. But forgive me if I dissect this season a little more. The playoff performance I just watched was about as poor as I’ve seen and I’ve been watching Cardinals football for 47 years. So no I’m not overreacting when I say this team embarrassed themselves and their fans last night.
After the 10-2 start they were 1-5, which was the worst in the league during that span.
Im a diehard Cardinals fan but I’m not okay with this crap!
I was going to buy season tickets for next year but now I’m not sure.
Why give them my $ for such a poor product.
