IMO we are a better destination for a HC than any of those teams.

For a GM, we might be 3rd or 4th best. Some guy might thinks he can trade Matt Ryan or Matt Stafford and get enough back to make a quick turnaround, but I have no idea what their cap situations are?

I think Chargers are a prime destination (Young QBOF with surrounding core on both Off and Def).
Jaguars will have Trevor Lawrence to work with.

Disagree. If Keim is retained and Kingsbury is given the boot that would be 3 coaches in 4 years for Keim and I can’t see why anyone would sign up to be the next fall guy. Throw in an average roster and the Cardinals would be at the bottom. Again.

Agree. Any change has to include Keim, IMHO. How many passes does the guy get?

If I’m Urban I go to the Chargers not Jaguars. Wouldn’t be surprised if Jacksonville throws the house at Dabo.

Precisely. We need to display some level of patience / job security to get a good coach.

We had a good coach in BA. I would have for sure given him another year, but he "retired".

He had his flaws, but he put a competitive team every year he was here.

Since then weve swung and miss with Wilkes, and hit a single with KK. The problem is that KK seems to be a double at best.

Whats the point of trying to drag it out, just move on find a coach that really has something.

We fell in to BA. We were his last choice. Or he was ours. One or the other.

We need to replace the GM if we are to get a good HC candidate. Pioli, Ireland, Caserio etc.... There are a ton of great options out there.

I’d like A-Dub as GM and Anthony Lynn as HC in AZ. I know Chargers lost 16 games last two seasons by a TD or less, but I think it was just bad luck and tons of injuries.

The franchise needs a new set of eyes

I agree, even if it ends up being someone like Adub. A "new set of eyes" even though he is already in the organization. Keim has run his course here, and the overall resume is so-so. I'm sure he will get a shot with another team in a year or two...but he's not an elite GM that is irreplaceable.

Adub is a HOF level player, still young, had a very well known toughness about him, and seemingly gets along well with MB.

Let him have a shot. IMO almost anything is better than a lame duck year with a GM and HC who are likely to get fired. I just don't see it. Its a waste.

Why do you like A-Dub as GM? Honest question. He's a good guy but it would worry me a little just from the experience factor and being internal. We might benefit from fresh outside eyes that don't have ties to any of the existing staff or guys.

Right, I really like the dude but being a great player doesn't translate often in being great manager
I still remember when he was promoting Marqui Christian to be drafted by the Cardinals, after being selected in the fifth round he was cut after training camp
