“Luck favors the prepared mind.”- Chip Kelly

Sounds awfully close to John Wooden to me.

Doug – your show used to have a podcast. Did you get rid of it?

Thanks,

Scott

don’t think so…I still get e-mails about it.

Those that want Coach Grimm fired just don’t want to accept logical explanations. Grimm like you said has to work with what he has been given. Even those that say they should have drafted a lineman before now, who would they want the team to pass on and take an offensive lineman instead.

Mark

Thanks for the additional point and for listening.

Good point about lack of experience I am a piano tuner and have been for 25 years and have tuned for many concerts however I didn’t do concert tunings when I had 3 months experience, I wouldn’t have done justice to the clients. The Cardinals have no choice but to throw them to the fire and they will have to sink or swim with them and try to do the best with what they have. There Have been a couple of picks that haven’t worked out but most have been impact players, or have shown potential.

Greg

Didn’t look at like that, thanks. My family has moved three times and never tuned the piano. Can you come over some time?

Doug,

How can a team expect to succeed when they have and have had one of the worst O lines in the league. What is the matter with the front office?

Andrew

It’s a very legitimate question. Before I say something negative, let me first say I think the Cardinals have one of the best scouting departments in the league. So many of the draft choices and free agent signings have worked out well. So many that weren’t offensive linemen.

I think there is a true hole in their evaluation of offensive lineman. I have no idea if it’s a case where Russ Grimm has too much say and he’s not a great evaluator or not enough say and they’re drafting/signing lineman with little input from him. I don’t question his ability to coach a lineman to be better than they are. I wonder why some of these guys are here in the first place.
