    I read some things SK said recently, maybe yesterday so it may be old news to some of you? He said that the Cardinals liked Bruce Hector coming out of South Florida in 2018, said it's nice to have a young rotational defensive lineman. I looked up some stats on Hector, he had 7.5 sacks in 2017 at South Florida, that's pretty damn good considering he played NT. SK also said that our personnel dept just put out a spread sheet on every position they think can be upgraded from the waiver wire. Went on to say there's still 4-6 spots left to be claimed on the 53 man roster. Ended by saying" if the right guy is there on the waiver wire, I will pull the trigger". He has said that he works the phones constantly, i hope before September 8th we have some surprises with a few players. We need some depth on both lines & maybe another CB?

    Remember when Rod Graves said don’t judge the team until you see them in Week 1?

    That team went 4-12.

    True, but every team is different obviously. Sounds like they're at least trying. Lots of opinions on how SK built the team & what he should & shouldn't have done. Truth is, this team couldn't be totally built in one season, they had to make a choice on how to do it. Went with a playmaking QB & more WR help mainly, signed a few FA's on both sides of the ball. This yr I wanna at least compete, make it exciting & give us hope for the future. We have 100 million in dead cap money next yr, if SK can't build both OL & DL with that much cap room then he needs to take a hike? He helped create all that dead money, some of the signings involved made sense at the time, so I can't totally blame him on all of it.

    So even though he has proven a complete and utter inability to build the OL and built a merely average DL, you want to hand him the 100 million and expect he will suddenly figure things out when he has proven time and again he isn't up to the task?

    It's a good thing Rod Graves is no longer with the team & has no bearing on the current team.

    I hear you, the OL hasn't been his strong point so far but how many times in the past has he had 100 million in cap space? With that much money, if he gets it wrong, then can his ass.

    Didn’t we have like $60 million last season and he blew it on Sam Bradford and other garbage? We don’t have $40 million in dead money this season because Keim is good at finding values in free agency.

    Overpaid for Bradford, yes sir. 100 million is still 40 million more than last season then. Lots a GM can do with an extra 40 million after using the other 60. You get the point. I'm saying if he spends that much money & we still have no OL or DL then he has to go.

    Next years cap space is all about the trenches. No more excuses if it’s not overhauled properly. If not he needs to go.

    It will all be over soon. He would have been fired last offseason if it weren’t for the checks written to all of the mistakes that Keim and Bidwill made

    No! You don't keep a bad GM in place, hand him the franchise-building offseason of the century, and THEN throw your hands up and fire him AFTER he screws it up. You never give him the chance to screw it up in the first place!
