No more excuses.VJ got several additions across the front seven. It’s on him now to show if he really is the right DC for the Cards.
+1

Time to show us you can put these guys in the right position to succeed.

If not I can see another DC next year.

Is Wade still available as a consultant? He would be able to scheme with the talent we have.

I think its also...

Kliff you're still going to have to coach around the OLine and develop the young Wrs. Hopkins will help a lot, but yea..

Thought we'd draft 2 possible starters on Oline. Jones needs time and we didnt draft a center.

I think that Shipley not being re-signed tells us that they Like Cole as the starter and have faith that Garcia and Gaillard as back ups. Can't fix it all in an offseason.

If the Cards can’t cover a tight end next year it will be on Vance Joseph

They just drafted Isaiah Simmons if they’re still having issues then he’s not the player everybody in the world thought he was the coach can’t change that

Our problems with the TE were closely correlated with our inability to generate QB pressure.

TE routes take longer to develop. Teams that can’t apply early pressure get torched by them.

I think Simmons helps in both ways: very good at applying pressure and should be able to run with all the TEs (will give up some catches but limit RAC).

ETA: teams that suck at stopping the run also get torched by TE (leaking out on play action). Our front 7 is just better now. We won’t get killed on the run this year. That will help us against TE as well.

I thought after we signed Campbell, Kennard and Phillips that we would split our picks this year offense and defense.

obviously Kiem is out to make sure this defense is stacked with depth.

Not saying we won’t sign another free agent but it certainly appears we won’t be hitting the waiver wire for a starter.
