Cards’ website says they give their perceived best scout the Rod Graves Award. That’s like giving out an award called the Jeffrey Dahmer Award for fine dining. Graves personnel knowledge kept the Cards buried for years. Sure Dollar Bill’s restrictions were an issue, but Graves was clueless.

Graves drafted better than Keim.

IMO, it was bad free agent moves, coaching decisions, and an inability to find a long-term answer at QB after Warner that doomed him.
He just moved a little slow in his actions as GM, but that might have been because ole man Bidwill was holding him back. He was also one of the first men of color which held such a high position in a NFL front office, which carries a certain principle that one who supports the Cardinals should be proud of

We can't minimize the very old school way Bidwill preferred in structuring contracts, and how slowly but surely Graves brought him into the present era.
