    The Cardinals need to lock up Ray Horton for years to come.

    The only way to ensure that is to hire him as the HC---which is what he deserves.

    SF---Kaepernick is only in his 2nd year---

    SEA---Wilson is a rookie---

    STL---Bradford is their franchise QB for years to come.

    All three teams can pound the ball.

    We need to get stronger up front and quicker and more sudden on the edges.

    But, most of all, we need Ray Horton more than anything else.

    What Horton did to Matt Ryan and the #1 seed Falcons...Ryan's worst game of the year.

    What Horton did to Tom Brady and the #2 seed Patriots...Brady's worst game of the year.

    And Horton doesn't have his ideal personnel just yet.

    Bring in Mike Mularkey as OC.

    Vote Horton/Mularkey in 2013...

    This weekend proved that is possible to watch four NFL games while simultaneously reading the new Dick Wolf thriller from cover to cover.

    This weekend proved that football and the NFL is by far the best most entertaining sport on the planet. No other sport is as intense or as enjoyable to watch.

    I've always liked the divisional playoff weekends the best, usually exciting games with a lot of offense, this year was no exception. Denver/Baltimore and Seahawk/Falcons both amazing games. Packers/49ers started out close before the 49ers broke away.

    Shows me that defenses don't win games in the playoffs. Need an aggressive offense with a good qb and tough linemen.

    Bring me McCoy for HC!!!! Horton as DC will do just fine.

    Well I can understand why you don't think baseball is enjoyable to watch.

    As for me and other Cardinal/Cardinal fans the 6th game of the 2011 World Series is about as good as it gets when it comes to outstanding sports television.

    :D

    Horton didn't do nearly as well vs. the Cardinals division rivals - with the 49ers and Seahawks now having the aforementioned mobile QBs. Hope he can figure out how to defend them better because we're going to be seeing a lot of them for a long time.

    Yeah, that was great!! But it didn't match the excitement when Fitz caught the skinny post and raced into the endzone in the SB. That moment was the greatest sports feeling of my life, followed closely by Young running to the corner of the endzone in the '05 BCS championship game. UT made the stop they needed, unfortunately the Cards didn't. But yeah that game 6 was awesome too

    Agreed. I think it can just as easily be argued that this season proved that if we don't do whatever it takes to get better on the offensive side of the ball we are going to remain in the basement of the NFL. Again, if Horton will bring a great OC with him that's great, hire him. If he can't, he shouldn't get the job. This offense has to be fixed. We had Horton and a good defense this year and we were 5-12.

    Well said Mitch! Hopefully the Cardinals aren't the "same ol" in this coaching decision ;)

    Although I love the NFL... And bleed red....... Soccer is still the craziest crap on the planet.

    For example.... The last game in the Premier league last year for Manchester City. Insane. Complete.....Utter...... Insanity. And that was just last year.

    Good and bad things in both....... But I give it to Club level or World Cup level soccer.

    It just reinforced what bad shape the Cards are as a team. We are so far behind the other teams in our league, who by the way are young and getting even better each year, that I don't see us having much chance to rise to the top of our division in this decade. On top of all that, I don't have much longer than that to live, if that. So I guess I will have to live eternity with that one great year we made it to the Super Bowl. Amen. RIP Cardinals.

    The other teams in our division got good fast. No reason we can't (assuming we get our sh*t together).
