    The interesting thing is that they didn't need to fire Amos Jones - his contract was up after 2017. All they had to do was not renew him. Of course, semantic difference may have made no difference to Arians - he could've insisted that the team extend Jones and the Cardinals coudld've refused - but it's not as though the Cards were going to give Arians a proverbial slap in the face by firing his guy of forcing him to do so.

    I was astounded that Cleveland hired the guy, and completely unsurprised that they ended up with the league's worst special teams. Will Arians REALLY hire him again in Tampa Bay??? Should be interesting to see! If so, it will lend credence to your theory (and i'll be less sorry that Arians is gone). If not, it may indicate that Arians wasn't so attached to Jones that he'd quit his job over it.

    EDIT: Just saw the post above, reporting that Arians hired Keith Armstrong as ST Coordinator. Sigh.

    I liked Arians as much as you guys liked Fisher. Freak them both.

    With all due respect...not even close.

    Probably substitute our hate for Wilks to Fisher but we only had to deal with it for 1 year!

    That staff is good at Bucs. If Jameis Winston puts in the same effort as Palmer and Stanton watch out!

    I don't understand dislike towards Arians for taking another job. Never will.

    I’m just mad at how we had such an incompetent staff last season.

    Its like getting dumped by your girlfriend of 4 years because she sighted health issues.

    We then hookup with a complete wreck for a year and breakup.

    Your ex is back in the game while we drop it down a notch picking up girls still in school hoping for some fast up tempo excitement.

    When BA retired, I knew by his tears amd statements he was basically being forced out. He took retirement route instead of the axe. I knew there were issues between brass and BA.

    When BA mentioned several times that the Browns could lure him out of retirement, my thought was if you're gonna coach it should be back here.

    When Bucs hiring came out, it confirmed my suspicions of bad blood between BA and Cards brass.

    Now that he's grabbing most of his previous staff, it became clear why some of the bad blood existed. BA is loyal to a fault. I think MB and SK wanted some of BA staff changed and he wouldn't.

    Never. Screw the Bucs and every other team not named the Arizona Cardinals.
