    It may take 4-6 weeks like it did with Horton and Bowles but the D will be much improved this year. The offense not being historically record-setting in 3 and outs again will help too.

    I know I was just messing with you. It’s nice to actually discuss defense for a change.

    Nice.

    In that grand tradition -

    Interesting piece in one of the NYC dailies on Markus Golden and Jim Bettcher

    There is an odd silence about this guy. Not being in the draft room, not being talked about, etc.

    I thought that was weird also, maybe he knew the Cardinals would take alot of offensive players & didn't feel like he needed to be there? Maybe he had something going on & was excused by the FO?

    Agree about the odd silence... but was Bettcher in the draft room? Previous coordinators? I don't recall, but wouldn't expect it. As long as he was involved in setting the draft board, I don't see why he'd need to be in the draft room.

    Sorry. I don't do links (Don't have the skill-set).

    I read a hard-copy of the article. (Don't have an on-line version to establish a link - if I even knew how to do that).

    I really enjoyed the VJ interview. Very intelligent, well spoken, and low key. He wasn't a great HC, but I don't think he was horrible either. The QB position, or lack thereof, really doomed his chances in Denver. If he can resurrect himself in AZ, I definitely see this guy getting another HC job at some point in time. Our offense will be light years better than last year, so this year's D won't be on the field to the same extent as they were last year. That alone will result in a turnaround on D. Losing PP21 for 6 games sucks, but I like the fact that VJ cut his teeth coaching DB's. If he creates one of the better defenses in the conference, he could be a HC again 2-3 years down the road. I like him, and hope he gets another shot.

    The part I found most interesting was when asked about a player to keep our eyes on, he immediately fawned over Dennis “The Barbarian” Gardeck. VJ mentioned how he’s 6’2”, runs a 4.5, and possesses heavy hands for a backer.

    Sounds to me like they expect big things from Gardeck and not all that concerned about ILB depth behind Hicks & Reddick. Let’s not forget they have Joe Walker and also picked up Tanner Vallejo, who was highly desired by several teams on the waiver wire.
