Quick thoughts on Urban’s assessment of Cards’ offseason. I like what he said about Gannon imposing a new philosophy on the identity of this team. It needed one badly, so this is most welcome. Next up was the receiver corp which is looking to go big. It’s a worthy idea but losing sight of Dortch would be a significant mistake. This team needs heart and he brings an ample supply. I don’t want to oversell Tune, but I think he’s going to watch. He plays to win and he’s basically fearless. He can also run. I’m hoping he’s the highlight of preseason. Center is still unsettled. If Froholdt was blowing people away, Roullier wouldn’t have been invited to visit. Pass rush looks very concerning. Finally the Baker situation is far from resolved. Since the team is going nowhere win-wise you have to ask if Baker’s leadership is worth the kind of money he’s asking to receive. Especially with Simmons being targeted at safety, you have to think the Cards are weighing their options.
