    I dont think they bail on Hicks. Dead money and a captain i think. Also, Vallejo came in for Hicks.

    Highy doubt it. Hicks is under contract and a really good player.

    Hicks weakness is in coverage and we have seen how good Campbell is and we all expected Simmons to be outstanding in coverage. I like Hicks and I would expect VJ would find a way to get them all enough playing time.

    you would save $3mm in 2021 and $9mm in 2022 cap money by moving on. I like the player, but the cap constriction is going to force some difficult decisions

    I don't expect Vance to do too much in terms or creativity. I have seen his vanilla blitz packages. If you want to see something sad, look at his success rate when blitzing, 18th in AZ last year and 31st in 2018 per Football Outsiders. Pretty gross when you consider he had Chandler Jones in 2019 and Von Miller in 2018.

    I think Keim pulled a best player available instead of best player at a position of need.

    How good would this team be right now with CB Henderson?

    Take a break chopper. You're overreacting still. Give it some time! Its way too early to be upset while 2-0

    On the one hand we have many fans as volunteer GM's. And on the other hand we have SK as a paid GM. I'll go with the other hand, remembering you get what you pay for. And, also remembering all the volunteers who didn't want the team to draft KM.

    Yes...because "In Keim We Trust" has never steered us wrong. I love how Keim is suddenly un-reproachable after he hit on the #1 pick in the draft and...Rashad Lawrence. All prior history is apparently ignored.

    But, you do you. If you trust in Keim now, I hope you are correct. I will still choose to believe that he is the guy he has shown himself to be over the years.

    It's show me time for Keim.

    His drafts have not been good on the long haul.

    Lots of misses and big ones.

    Why can't VJ just watch film of teams that are very successful blitzing?

    He's also the guy who built at team that won like 35 games over a 3 year stretch.

    Keim has shown he can make some shrewd moves here and there. Is he the best? No he's not, but he's probably the best GM the Cardinals have had on their Arizona years.

    This team right now has Keims fingerprints all over it and MANY GMs (including you if you were one) would have kept Rosen and drafted Bosa. It's hard to believe that this team would have done better last year and the 2-0 start this year with that configuration.

    My issue with Keim, and I know you have said this many times, is that he continues to use premium draft picks on non premium positions.

    Here is the difference between us. I think the Cardinals won 35 games over 3 years DESPITE Keim at GM. I feel like they underachieved based upon his approach to FA and the draft. I do acknowledge Keim hired Kingsbury and drafted Murray, but I believe that was a desperation move more than anything else. His trades are also very successful and his FA approach this year was pretty good. His contracts and cap management are weird, but I am not as familiar with the orgs setup in terms of cap management.

    He could but some of blitzing ins knowing when to blitz and who to blitz against. Vance wants to try to cover EVERYTHING which is why his scheme is so assignment driven and complex. That is the biggest difference between Vance and Wade Phillips. Wade's scheme is fairly simple in terms of what he asks players to do on any given play. He wants his fast players to think less in order to play as fast as they can. Vance wants to have as many if-then assignments as possible which covers more, but requires a bunch more thinking and communication.
