To me, Whiz represents improvement.
Glad to see the article and I'm greatly looking forward to the season. Although I doubt we will be great, It's a pleasure to see continual movement and resolve towards better things.
I don't know why the fans now try to bash on Whiz, 8 years ago not even one fan would have said that it would be mandatory to go .500, 8 years ago no one dreamed of a NFC West Champion title that was in range, that seemed doable, 8 years ago no one said that if our QB would play adequate we could win the SB, 8 years ago when someone would said in 2012 we are missing a reliable QB for a team that could make a Playoff run, everyone would have laughed at you.
Nothing has changed?
Whiz has to go if he fails with a QB?
Then he searches a new one but in the draft.
I don't get it people Ray Horten needs about at least 1-2 years to be ready as a Head-coach and till then Whiz will do his best, if he doesn't succeed probably we can talk about it.
Docket, fitz, aw, talking about the changes and how it's the reason they extend before becoming free agents is more impactful than the eldest guy on the block avoiding retirement.
In other words if mcnabb cited the change in culture as why he wants to play in az people like you would point out he just wants to play anywhere..,
Baltimore wins with offense
but Holliday WAS in his prime back in 2003 and he said bluntly he would not play for the Cardinals at that time. it does carry weight, he was a good FA at the time and i bet you if the franchise were still in the same sorry state as it was back then he would not come back today.
heck, even Peyton Manning flirted with us and we had somewhat of a chance to get him this offseason. that would not have happened in 2003. sure, Montana flirted with us but we all knew it was only a ploy to get more money. As small of a chance we had to get Manning, at least it was a real shot as we could have offered him the same money he got now. we couldnt do those things back in the day.

Now again what I said was that holiday saying it now and diluting the current status means virtually nothing because his options are az...retire.
It's easy to negate his opinion when you had rolle and dansby anxious to leave thusly the part about dd, fitz, aw in my last post.
Baltimore wins with offense
I mean, what would happen if, hypothetically, Cory Redding and Jarrett Johnson were offered more money than they were worth to play somewhere else. If that were to ever happen, it wouldn't necessarily mean that free agents were clamoring to leave Baltimore. I mean, I realize that something like that would never happen, but.... oh wait.
I doubt we would have gotten a P Manning type to come visit years ago
Again, it's great that Holliday and presumably a lot of others love old coach Whis. But lotsa love and 5-11, 6-10, whatever, might find the guy they love on the outside looking in.
Maybe what I'm trying to say is, winners win, losers say I need a quarterback.
