James conners extension.
Honestly who had high expectations coming into this season?
I'm gonna say that the Cards finish 10-7, come in second in the division, and make the playoffs.
Kyler is too good to let the Cards have a losing record
I think either the Rams or the 49ers take a major step back (I think it's the Rams)
I think this is the year Kliff's offense finds the next gear and finishes in the Top 10 for DVOA
A most excellent recap! My first two choices would be Josh Rosen and Matt Leinert, both desperation picks. But our picks are usually desperate. We too often draft a player then try to figure out what to do with him.Since Keim has taken the reigns, he has done a terrible job of managing the draft. Here is his track record of first round picks that are the cornerstone of success.
2013 – Jonathon Cooper (7th pick) – instead of 1st round picks after our pick: Sheldon Richardson, Eric Reid, Kyle Long, Tyler Eifert, Desond Trufant, Xavier Rhones, “DeAndre Hopkins”, Cordarrelle Patterson, Travid Frederick.
2014 – Deone Bucannon (27th pick) – instead of 1st round picks after our pick: Teddy Brigewater; notable 2ndrounders – DeMarcus Lawrence, Devante Adams, Allen Robinson, Jarvis Landry
2015 – DJ Humphries (24th pick) – took some time to get out of the Arians doghouse but has been serviceable
2016 - Robert Nkemdiche (29th pick) – no notable 1st round picks but here are 2nd rounders – Jaylon Smith, Chris Jones, Xavien Howard, Derrick Henry, Michael Jones
2017 – Haason Reddick (13th pick) – good pick but was pretty much wasted in AZ. Not sure if Keim drafted him as an ILB or coaching staff mismanaged him.
2018 – Josh Rosen (10th pick) – epic failure and could have had Minkah Fitzpatric, Vita Vea, Tremaine Edmunds, Derwin James, Leighton Vander Esch, Frank Ragnow and even Lamar Jackson
2019 – Kyler Murray (1st pick) – the jury is still out… but the jury is not out on the following: Nick Bosa, Devin White, Josh Allen, these are great players.
2020 – Isaiah Simmons – jury still out but good pick just mismanaged… notable 1st round picks: Tristan Wirfs, DeeDee Lamb, Justin Jefferson
2021 – Zaven Collins – jurty still out but good pick just mismanaged
2022 – Traded our pick for Brown – jury still out on this trade
All in all, Keim has mismanaged the draft! While just looking at first round picks after we selected, there are plenty of successful NFL players. The could have list includes OL, DL, LB, RB.
I know a lot of you guys on this site are much better at drafting than Keim has shown but I will be glad when Keim is not the GM anymore!
10-7 is playoff which is high expectations for the Cardinals given their history. They've only had 3 season since being in AZ with a better record.I don’t think 10-7 is high expectations. That should the the MIDDLING expectation of a fan.
Kyler wasn’t too good to keep the team from being bad. Sad!
I also think it’s high expectations for a team that was a disaster at the end of last year and brought back a roster that was even worse.10-7 is playoff which is high expectations for the Cardinals given their history. They've only had 3 season since being in AZ with a better record.
Making the playoffs when 7 of 16 teams qualify for the postseason is basically the definition of expecting mediocrity. Before this season it was a fair assumption that if you had a decent QB you'd make the playoffs.10-7 is playoff which is high expectations for the Cardinals given their history. They've only had 3 season since being in AZ with a better record.
Justin BethelSigning Gardeck to a 3 yr/$10 million extension.
Gardeck has 1 sack in his last 20 games. Assuming Anderson and Watt are gone next year, Gardeck is currently set to have a top 12 cap hit on the roster next year. I have never seen someone get rewarded so extensively for a fluky 3 game stretch as that dude.
Reddick sure has proven me wrong. I thought he’d be no big loss and a product of playing opposite of Jones.It’s not the worst, but I was really sad that Keim let Reddick go for cheap after a fantastic year and didn't make the move to resign him this year. Reddick has 12 sacks so far this season.
