Caldwell out as an OC option for a defensive HC

Demarco has a roster full of talent. It would take 3 years to accumulate the talent he has now, and that’s if we hit on all picks and made all the right moves.
That scares me.

This is the glaring issue for this team.

If it were up to me, I'd eat as much cap in 23 to catch up as much as possible, accumulate as many draft picks as possible, and just run with VJ at HC.

It's more important to get a strong GM to build the roster out and clear the cap between 23 and 24. Look for a premium HC going into 25.

Count me as a Flores fan. If he could hire the right offensive coordinator, I'd love for Flores to be the guy. Hire him and Ian Cunningham and I bet they could turn things around.

I dunno, man. He was pretty hard on Tua, and his OC of choice was Chan Gailey.

I like him as a coach, but I think he might be more of a guy who you want when you have an established QB. He's a hard pick if your main goal it to optimize for Kyler Murray.

Good points, but I would like to see Murray used in a traditional NFL offense and I do want a coach that is going to challenge Murray.

Not to mention the constant OC turnover.

If Ossenfort is the GM I can see Flores getting the HC job.

Flores + Kyler would be an interesting combo

like watching Free Solo kinda interesting-- but without knowing if he makes it to the top ahead of time

Okay, I think I was wrong about Flores. Since the Cards announced they would interview him, I’ve communicate with several knowledgeable people. I had endorsed Flores because of his ability to produce a winning record while his ownership was trying to tank the team. I truly was impressed by the way he got his depleted team to pull together. Since the Cards have both a dysfunctional owner and a dysfunctional team culture, he seemed a great pick. However, after consulting several sources, I don’t believe he would be a good choice, though I’m confident he’d help the defense. It‘s not just his background is heavily defense, it’s that the general feeling is that he struggled to build an effective offensive coaching staff in Miami. That group failed to develop a cohesive offensive line and failed to maximize Tua’s skillset. Since I believe the Cards have to fix the offense above all else, I‘d rather look elsewhere for a coach.

Outside of Peyton is the most qualified coach
As u said he had a good record with Miami despite playing against almost everyone
We need strong personality and he has it
Regarding the offense probably he can assemble a better staff now

I like Flores as a coach but he would need to have a very good plan for the offensive side of the ball to be viable.
