    So now our o-line could quite possibly only be the second worst line on the team. This is really not good. This team may very well be exciting to watch (and I’m very excited) but we won’t be very good.

    My assumption would be that Keim bought him the pistol as a welcome gift, and took him to the club to celebrate his signing.

    Liens biggest mistake was believing this team was going to compete LAST year when he signed Bradford.i don’t blame him for drafting Rosen. It made sense at the time. But what could we do with the 20 m dead cap money right now?

    On the other hand I think if we all take a deep breath all we can hope for this year is to be competitive and entertaining. Next year we will have 100 million in cap space and another draft. Next year is when we should be a tesm to be reckoned with.

    Cardinals did what they had to do by moving on from this fellow.

    What is amusing is people using Darius Philon's as an excuse to come down on their expectations. I mean..

    I am betting that there is video of the whole thing. He wouldn’t of been arrested without evidence.

    If you lost $34 million you would have never been given the chance at hiring Philon.....

    I can tell you with 100% certainty you are wrong about that.

    I was arrested based on an allegation, and then had words put in my mouth (it was articulated in the report I admitted to committing a crime). I brought the situation before the department leadership and then later POST, and they chalked the behavior up as “discretion.”

    I’m telling you, someone can say “Speedy touched my ass at the ABC club on Saturday night; he was wearing a blue shirt with khaki pants.”

    The cops can ask me, “were you at ABC Friday night? Were you wearing a blue shirt with khaki pants? Did you touch Janes butt?” I can answer “yes, yes, and absolutely effin not,” and they can arrest me on a “preponderance of evidence: I admitted to being at ABC and I was wearing the clothes they alleged, so it’s “reasonable” to believe the allegation of ass touching had merit.

    I’m not making this up- it happens on the regular. I know a few professional LEO’s that wouldn’t make an arrest like that, but there are many that would. Any accusation involving Guns, violence against women, and threats of terrorism, are all hot button topics.

    It’s WAY easy to arrest someone, especially with these trendy accusations.

    Philon is the 3rd Cardinal to be released due to legal troubles in the past month. And our best defensive player was suspended for 6 games in May for failing a drug test and attempting to cover it up. That is not a normal 3 months for an NFL team. And it's just a fraction of the nightmare we have witnessed over the past year.

    Even for the Cardinals, this all feels entirely too dysfunctional. Especially when we potentially have a young, legit star at QB. We need to provide him with talent and stability in order for him to reach his potential. Not knuckleheads and dead cap space.

    I applaud the cardinals for holding tight and letting the legal process play out. I’m rather sure MB calls the shots on these types of matters. The dude flys his own plane; you think he is going to allow someone else to conduct a preliminary investigation into possible NFL and/or Cardinals conduct violations, that are being picked up as felonies in the criminal system?

    If MB felt the the evidence collected thus far suggested Darius was guilty, he would have already been cut. So if there were video to substantiate the allegation a weapon was pulled (as some posters suggest “must have” occurred in order for arrest), MB would have already acted.

    You've got a point Dayman. Keim is ultimately responsible for the roster, and coaching staff, and he's struggled mightily over the last 24 months.

    I hope he call pull the team out of the nose dive we started in 2018, but that still looks uncertain.

    I'd rather keep a 98% sober, 100% locked in, Steve Keim as GM. But if the team posts another 3-13 (or worse) mark this year, and our guys keep having discipline issues like Philon, I think we have go in another direction.

    Come on Stevie. Give me six wins and some hope baby. And keep these fools in line.

    I think the only things upper mgmt are ok with letting slide these days are 1st DUIs and PED offenses. I applaud them for having some moral standards there, can’t say the same about many other teams. Drafting Allen is looking like a real solid move right now, let’s just hope he’s ready...
