Things Actually Could Be Worse for Cardinals Fans

I wasn't going to write anything about the Bears/Cards game last night because NFL Adam had already written the funniest, most evil line about the impact of that game. But today, there was a little more news, so I thought I'd at least comment on that.

In the wake of last night's Cardinals collapse, Dennis Green has realized that since his team was outcoached by Charles Barkley and Joe Theisman last night (Barkley criticized the team at the end of the first half for settling for field goals instead of taking shots in the end zone; Theisman warned the Cards not to get conservative once they penetrated the 25 yard line on their final drive) heads will have to roll. In order to preserve his own job for at least a few more weeks, he's made the decision to fire offensive coordinator Keith Rowen and promoted quarterbacks coach Mike Kruczek to O. Coordinator. The move probably won't be enough for Green to keep his job next season, but it might at least stall his firing until the offseason.

In the "What if" department, a few years ago when Green was hired as the Cardinals' head coach, he offerred the QB Coach position to ESPN personality, Sean Salisbury. Salisbury ultimately rejected the offer when he realized that there was much more stability in being on tv and criticizing everyone else rather than actually demonstrating any knowledge by being a coach himself. However, had Salisbury taken the job and made it this long without being fired, he likely would now be the offensive coordinator. Then, considering that Green is on his way out and that Salisbury would likely be tight with franchise QB and fellow USC alum Matt Leinart, Sean Salisbury could have actually been the Arizona Cardinals head coach in 2007. That's a scary, freaking thought- tho still much better than actually having to listen to Salisbury's arrogant diatribes on ESPN.

Of course, all of this could have been avoided if this guy had actually practiced kicking the ball through the uprights rather than off of them:

LOL! So there is a bright side in Arizona after all!

If Sean Salisbury was ever the Coordinator for the Vikings (my favorite team), I might have to change my rooting interests.

Thanks for the love. I've had a lot of tasteless jokes lately. The worst part was when Thurman Munson signed into the forums.
