How do you think Whiz will do? How well do we WANT him to do?

Let us know what your best guess is. Might be interesting to come back after next season to see how well we all did.

I don't blame at all for taking the Cards job. I didn't expect him to wait on the Rooney's to make their minds up. When a HC job presents itself in the NFL you have to act quickly. Whiz didn't jump to the Falcons job and waited for the Rooney's but the Rooney's waited to have a second round of interivews. Which is their right to do so. But I wish Whiz well if I think if he fixes the Cards offensive line. They might suprise in 2007.

But I say 6-8 wins tops.

The Cardinals are a team that has been hyped every year for the past 2-3 years and they always fall flat! Whiz has taken over a good situation here in Arizona and he shouldn't have to do much but vamp up the O-Line! I see if him falling in the range of 7-9 to 9-t range.

I don't blame him either B @G. He waited a long time for the opportunity to coach for us, and I think there's no way that he went ahead with the Cards job unless he knew by either something the Rooneys said or did, or by gut feeling, that they weren't gonna hire him.

I agree with your numbers as well--the first year can be a tough transition for coach AND players--especially a 1st yr HC.

4-6 wins. While I hope Whiz does well. As long as it is not against us. :bigthumb: I see the Bidwells screwing this up.

I'm sure he had some insight that he was not going to get the Steelers HC position. Remember he has the same agent as Grimm. But I do wish him well. Congrats to Whiz for becoming a head coach in the NFL!!!

5-11 his first season. I think it will take the team a little time to adjust to his plans.

6-10 at the most I would think. That offensive line they have is terrible, it's going to take atleast a year or 2 to get the right personnel and give them time to work together and gel.

I'm gonna say 8-8, but they need to re-work that O-line for this to be anywhere near the truth.

I'm thinking they can get to 9-7 or 10-6. They do need some work though and things would have to go right for them to get above .500

Really? I think 8-8 at the most if that, only because that OL needs so much work that it will take awhile before they can get it together consistently; although their soft schedule will help that cause alot.

They do have some talent and will have an easy schedule, that is why I think they "could" get 9 or 10 wins. That is a best case scenario though.

I'd say 4-6....like a lot of people said hes got to fix his OL, thats not going to happen overnight. Plus hes got work to do on D and put his system in place. I give him 2-3 seasons and he'll be in the playoffs.....:helmet:
