rage. Kelly is too old to fit the criteria. Anyway, ND offense has generally been mediocre.
If this were Kelly in 2010 - fresh off Cincinnati offensive play, he might get an NFL shot.
to hear about people complaining about their NFL team, and not qualifying it with a “at least we’re not the Browns” caveat.
Firing a respected coach after one year doesn't help one's reputation.
There isn't much job security in the NFL to begin with--but if a coach has has an option of going to NFL team X or the Arizona Cardinals--they will likely pick the team that hasn't shown they will fire a HC after just 1 season.
The organization has other major issues.
The talent on the roster is terrible....not enticing for a new HC coming in and facing a quick axe if there isn't a quick turnaround.
His teams were completely overmatched. They had one of worst rated teams in NFL history particularly on offense.
He deserved to get canned.
over his nutty tightwad father Bill. Now he may be becoming his father.
But I'm good with this. It keeps Kliff away from JT Daniels.
and people here in AZ really respect and appreciate what he has done by sinking money back in to the team and facilities and community. I use to go to the cardinals games in late 80s when home on Christmas break from ND and sit in Sun Devil Stadium with 22,000 other people and watch my newly adopted pro team lose to the woeful Tampa Bay Bucs.
The team the past 11 years is light years ahead of those teams of the 80s and 90 and early 2000s. I went to both home playoff games in 2009 (2008 season) and wept when the Cardinals beat the Eagles to go to the super bowl.
I have lost no sleep over the firing of Wilks (he mentioned when he was hired that Ty Wilingham was one of his greatest influences.) I think Kingsbury is a reach and will for sure get Steve Keim fired if it doesn't work out.
My dad went to high school with him. He says he was goofy then, too.
experience? Screw it, hire a guy with zero NFL coaching experience. Steve Keim’s betting it all on Kliff Kingsbury. That’s suicidal.
Palmer retiring he knew AZ was heading into a big rebuild.
Fuck, why not hire Lane Kiffin?
Arizona deserves to go 0-16 forever.
First Steve Wilks.
And now some clown who couldn't hack it at Texas Tech...less than .500 winning %. Talk about riding Patrick Mahomes coattails.
He's a QB whisperer and AZ has a young one that needs a lot of coaching/nurturing along. Obviously, he'll need to find a GREAT DC, but if he does this and gets the O going, AZ will be in good shape.
Plus it screws over Southern Cal some...which I can't deny I enjoy.
It's an objectively stupid hire made by objectively stupid people.
It’s not the end of the world, but you can see it from there.
the horizon and see your rear end. Pumpjacks in your backyard, cotton fields, and tumbleweeds.
On the good side, the country club is affordable.
I played baseball for New Mexico Military Institute and we played Lubbock Christian in Lubbock. I was hit by one traveling about 40 mph while chasing a fly ball. I think I missed the ball. What a desolate place west Texas is. And those tumbleweed blizzards while you are driving are something to behold!
is located in the Llano Estacado. What desolate country. No wonder we're touched in the head.
How many do you want? Oh...bring mustard
AE can bring relish. They're great with Pabst.
Just the thought of tying together Bullet Bob's unfulfilled penchant for rotating tube steaks and New Mexico's devilish incarnation of same has my mouth watering already. You may want to check with AE though. He loved throwing out from to to time ketchup as the preferred hot dog condiment, I think mostly to get a rise out of all the board, grill-based foodies.
So, come next summer, we'll need an update from you on your travel plans. We're expecting that "if" changing to "when", you know. You may know that I met Denver Jim as did AE in South Florida back in early January 2013 (great memories, I think, except for that football game part); I'd just love to see the sibling interplay at work with you two after lobo dogs and Pabst. Although I will say that DJ took particular interest in my telling him of my dad being in the spirits business for Schenley Distillers back in the day.
dad loved beer--any kind any time, so it's no surprise DJ perked up when hearing about Schenley.
We once calculated how much beer my dad drank in his adult life. It was a phenomenal amount. His diet was horrible--sausages fried in crisco was a favorite.
His cholesterol was in the 175 range. I'm on statins trying to keep mine at 210.
Healthy living is overrated apparently.
Speaking of ketchup on a hot dog, that's how my dad ate them. Hmmmmm
