Default Bruce Arians - Steeler flunky, new Cards Coach

well well well...how did Bruce become such a hot commodity after 'retiring' as OC of Steelers? You could not find a Steeler fan who objected to the imposed retirement. Suspect playcalling was the reason for his demise.

He lands with the Colts and leads a rookie QB (a good one) to the playoffs

He interviews for several head coaching jobs and lands one in Arizona

How is that possible?

Did the Cards blow it? Is Bruce that good?

Is this an extended Fire Arians thread??

I cant wait to see how he does. Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and Andrew Luck can make you look good. Funny that nobody mentions Tim Couch and Arians Cleveland stint in the resume. If he makes Kevin Kolb a pro bowler, I'll be impressed.

Bruce Arians wants an Arizona Cardinals QB with 'grit'

By Kareem Copeland
Jan. 20, 2013

New Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians needs one thing to have a chance of success -- quality quarterback play. Fired coach Ken Whisenhunt couldn't get that from Kevin Kolb, John Skelton or Ryan Lindley.

Arians is known for his work with Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and Andrew Luck and for his aggressive scheme that pushes the ball downfield. He didn't ease Luck into the playbook as a rookie -- everything was installed and available.

Arians talked about what he's looking for during his introductory news conference Friday.

"When you go out and evaluate quarterbacks," Arians said, via The Arizona Republic, "you can look at arm strength, you can look at accuracy, you can look at height, weight, speed -- all the things that are coming up with these young quarterbacks -- but you truly can't measure two muscles, the brain and the heart, and that's what separates them.

"That's the grit. When they step in the huddle, the other 10 guys, whatever comes out of his mouth, they believe it's going to work. That doesn't mean he's the most talented player in the world, but he has that leadership, grit, that he's going to do whatever it takes for his football team. It means he's tough as nails and guys will follow him into a fire. That's what you're looking for. That's grit."

Some call that "True Grit," I do believe. Arians should have worn an eye-patch as he gave that explanation.

The question is: Is there a quarterback on the Cardinals' roster with those intangibles? If so, they didn't show it in 2012.

2015 NFL Sig Mock Draft:

2 trades: our 1(22) to Dallas for 1(27) and 3(91), then our 2(56) and 3(87) to NY Giants for 2(40)

1(27) Kevin Johnson CB Wake Forest
2(40) Eli Harold OLB Virginia
3(91) Donovan Smith OT Penn St
4(121) Gabe Wright DT/DE Auburn
5(160) Justin Cox CB/FS Miss St
6(199) Titus Davis WR C Michigan
6(212) Kyle Emanuel DE/OLB N Dakota St
7(239) Cameron Clear TE Texas A&M

Who's Bruce Arians? I'm no longer interested in discussing players/coach's who have NO barring on our future success's. NEXT.
