    Cardinals hire Sherman....

    SHERMAN GETS THE CARDINALS JOB

    Multiple league sources tell us that the Arizona Cardinals have selected Texans assistant Mike Sherman to be their next head coach.
    It's not known whether a contract has been finalized, but the word is that Sherman is getting the job.

    We'd previously heard that the Cardinals were planning to go with an offensive coach, and that Sherman was the favorite.

    The Cardinals were primarily attracted by his experience.
    He coached the Packers from 2000 through 2005, and also was the General Manager for several seasons.

    No coach has been with the franchise for more than six seasons, and the team has won only one postseason game since the Truman administration.

    Sherman is the third straight Cardinals coach having recent experience with an NFC team.
    His predecessor, Dennis Green, coached the Vikings for more than nine seasons, and the guy before Green, Dave McGinnis, had been the defensive coordinator in Chicago.


    The Cardinals' latest string of hires doesn't include a former Lions coach, since even the Cardinals aren't that desperate.

    I figured he would land another head coaching job eventually.. He is not that bad of a coach, just fell on hard times in his final season as Packer HC.

    Sherman had bit off more than he could chew when he was acting as both General Manager and Head Coach in Green Bay and if he doesn't do that in Arizona and is just the Head Coach I think he will be OK.

    That and the Owner opens the pocket book a little bit with the new stadium to get some line help and defensive help.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    He's a good Head Coach.. No doubt about that.. And he can work the offensive line down in Arizona, they sure have a very talented team..

    Re: Cardinals hire Sherman....

    Thats good for both Sherman and the Cardinals.......Arizona has the players it takes, espeicaly on Offense......Would be nice to see them become a power to reckon with, and watch them kick the butts of teams like the Giants, Cowgirls, and Beagles...


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    Re: Cardinals hire Sherman....

    He got screwed over in green bay in his last year there. Favre kind of chained him down not announcing whether he would be back or not and Sherman couldn't plan for the future at all. Doesn't help when your star receiver and running back get injured and you have the worst o-line in the NFL. Kind of funny how the cardinals get another NFCN reject though. He'll do better than denny did though IMO. Cardinals offense has a really bright future.

    Also the good news is that that's another team that Tomlin ISN'T going to.

    If tomlin sticks around for next year we have a win win situation. If Childress ends up sucking, then we fire him and go into the organization and get Tomlin. If Childress does well then Childress does well and we already have our future HC.
