    Hate this i Heart format, but Bob McManaman talks about the discontent in the locker room - especially with the offense (but really across the board).

    Pretty much tears into the coaching staff, how poorly the team has gotten so quickly, how several players didn't like the handling of Bradford, etc. Fearing the locker room will get toxic after a few more losses, especially if the coaches don't have any answers.

    I’m guessing to keep him active and let him get his money. They voted him a captain.

    I listened to the interview a few times. I am stunned at how bad the vibe is inside the locker room. I hope MacManaman is wrong.

    Just stunned and speechless like the hosts of that interview. My o My

    I'm sorry, but I agree with players on everything but Bradford. Dude got $15 mil to play like Stoney Case. Boo-freaking-hoo.

    My biggest fear is that Wilks is completely devoid of what is needed on offense, even to get a replacement for McCoy. Like Spags when he coached the Rams and didn't really know what was going on 'that side of the house' when the offense struggled.

    Thanks for the awesome BA replacement plan that you pretty much had an entire year to plan for, Keim and Bidwill.

    I’m not really shocked.

    1)First of all this offense was historically bad with Bradford in the lineup & has only slightly getting better.

    2) The defense has been thrashed every game by less than stellar offenses.

    3) stud RB Johnson has showed occasionally during games his frustration due to touches and/or lack of production

    4) HOF WR Larry Legend has been an afterthought & clearly ignored by this coaching staff regardless of hammy issues & stares his career lows by a long shot if his pace continues

    5) the coaching has been abysmal

    With the upcoming offenses we’re going to face on the road it can get worse if the losing continues imo. If it does, Wilks could very lose this team

    Hard to believe the worst team in the league has locker room issues.

    Just saw a clip of a mic'ed up Antoine Bethea from the 49'ers game saying to Patrick Peterson on the sidelines after Petersons interception..."why didn't you cut back?" referring to Patrick's run back effort.

    Wow!!!! Really...a teammate asking you that after a huge momentum building play?????

    He then goes on to say to Patrick..."the LSU P I know would've taken that one to the house. He would've cut back!"

    Peterson's response was something like.. "there were two 49'ers behind me".

    WHAT!!!!!!!!!????????

    There was something odd about that run back after the interception. Just looked weird. Then it got even weirder when Patrick ran to do some sort of weird pose with a couple other Cardinals for the cameras.

    Yeah...this team under Wilks is in full disarray.

    It's toward the end of this VIDEO if you haven't seen it.

    Also...maybe I'm in the minority here...it just seemed weird to me and in my mind perhaps further illustrates the state of confusion this team is in under this new coaching staff and system.

    Pretty much. When that happens players look around and say are they gonna take my money next. That's human nature.

    Trade rumors all over the place.

    In the closing stages of the season, after Rosen has shown progress but McCoy is stil holding the whole offense back, Leftwich should get a shot at calling plays. I have a feeling that he might be the solution.
