It's not about just the coaches. It's top down. The Cardinals don't have an owner like Kraft or a football man like BB. No team in the NFL does. We have a pretty good management team in place. You can't model after the Pats. So many teams try to and fail. The Cardinals organization is a country club compared to the Pats. It's not about the special teams coach.
All of that said, I don't think Arians ever gets fired. If the 2017 season crashes and burns like 2016 Palmer and Fitzgerald are probably both gone and Arians will probably retire. And none of the above should be construed as an endorsement of Whisenhunt. Just pointing out the numbers.
Disclaimer: All of the above is just my opinion, except for the comments on relative records for each of the coaches mentioned above within the context of the scenario presented above. Those comments are facts.
As I had stated, if we have a "bad" year, I wouldn't be calling for his head. If we have a bad year and I have another season of Arians trying to protect "his guys" and "his coaches" then I would be okay with letting him go. You can't preach accountability, and then not hold your preferred guys accountable.
I was gonna post a pic, but honey badger don't give a dang.

It would appear we went from the golden city glowing in the desert where players wanted to get to even if they have to take a pay cut to the red headed stepchild in the desert that is going to have to overpay for mediocre talent. Last year hurt us in more ways than one.
And congrats to AriS who managed to derail another thread and turn it into his own personal ***** ****fest.
On a side note, its almost time for all the snowbirds and students to evacuate the state.
like KR and onehearbeat mention you start to circle the wagons with the passing of time and facing adversity. YOu cant do that.
