MB needs to step up his Baja Arcadia house game.
I also think Bidwill gets kinda too tough of a rap over here and from clowns like Bickley for his Super Bowl recruiting stuff. Unspoken part of the guy’s job as owner of the local
football team is to be a civic representative. What’s good for the Valley is usually good for the Cardinals.
I'm a big believer that stuff is usually a lot more in the middle than people make it out.
After watching/listening to numerous
media interviews where players talked about Kyler, I'm convinced that the national media is mostly reporting negative views of Kyler from a place of ignorance. They don't know Kyler and they bash him based on an uninformed opinion about him.
Now some blame does lay at Kyler's feet; it's his job as a professional athlete to shape the media on who he is and what he stands for.
The same goes for Michael Bidwill. I think he's an okay guy as far as a rich, fat cat owner goes. I do think he cares about winning and legitimately does want to improve the Cardinals brand. He is much better than his father based on nearly every indicator. His biggest issue is that he still isn't a football savvy owner. The fact that he couldn't see what was wrong with Keim's approach for a long time demonstrates that.
I'm legitimately excited right now for the direction of the team because this is the first time in a long time that the Cardinals are demonstrably going in a new direction. Keim was a remnant of the Ferguson/Graves era. We will likely see a lot of scouts and Wilson/Harris also gone after the draft.
