I think he probably would have done better if he had the recruiting classes that Oregon has had over the years. No?
I can’t say for sure that he’d have done better, but recruiting is the most important aspect of college sports. He clearly didn’t perform well at that part of his job.

He was 22-40 against FBS competition at TT. That’s pretty damn bad for a public university in Texas.
Where does TT fall in the hierarchy of Texas football in the eyes of recruits? We know for sure that A&M, UT, OU, Baylor, TCU, LSU, and Houston(in some cases), ect are all above TT. Recruiting isn't coaching, even though it's probably the most important aspect of college football.

It doesn’t really matter where TT falls in the hierarchy of Texas football. A good coach can win (or at least go .500) at any school in that region.

Recruiting is the epitome of head coaching. It’s convincing a player that a coach knows what he’s doing and can win games. It’s the same thing in the NFL, it’s just colored differently.

Failed at a mid-level FBS school —> head coach in the NFL?

Looking at it objectively, it doesn’t make sense. My expectations are very low.

Our staff looked great on paper last season. I recall during training camp all of the local radio guys gushing about how it's the best group of coaches they've been around since the Cardinals came to Arizona.

Low expectations or not, none of it matters, based on last season.

So Kyler Murray announces he’s all in on football. I’m not sure I’d take him #1, but I’d definitely think about trading down and picking him along with additional assets. I get that we took Rosen last year, but he wasn’t exactly good last year. Even if we plan to keep Rosen, I think we could get creative with how we use Murray. The saints use Taysom hill effectively and I think Murray could be even more useful.

I’d especially be willing to pursue this if we could get a good return from trading Rosen. In fact, I’d just take him 1st if we could get a good deal for Rosen.

Idk how I feel about Murray. He makes Russell Wilson look like big dude. I'm not totally opposed to it, but trading down seems like the best option for the Cards, imo. They need a lot and still might be able to get a good return and fill more holes.

Admittedly I’m not any good at evaluating football talent. I want the cardinals to be exciting. They brought in an innovative offensive coach. Kyler Murray allows you to get very creative. He’s a special athlete who happens to have an impressive arm. He’s small, but that won’t be as big of a deal in a non traditional offense. We’ll see what happens I guess.

Barf. You can't judge Rosen based on last season. It was literally "just survive". A pretty terrible situation to throw him into. Terrible play calling, 3rd and 4th string offensive lineman across the board, constantly getting killed and sacked. 1.5 WRs most of the season. Thank God the kid didn't tear an ACL or suffer multiple concussions.

Let him try out this new system with a real offensive mind and a starting offensive line + another stud WR. If it doesn't work out, next year has a much deeper and talented QB pool coming into the NFL. I wouldn't give up on him based on a crummy situation for anyone for a tweener QB.

Name as many QBs as you can close to Murray's size that have had great careers in the NFL that run around regularly. Name as many QBs as you can that are prototypical size pocket passers that have had great careers in the NFL? You'll struggle with one to come up with more than 5 and you'll struggle to find enough space for the other. He had a great college season and won the Heisman but there was nothing historic about what he produced that tells me "get rid of Rosen after one season in a bad situation for a small (generous) mobile QB hoping he is more Doug Flutie than Manziel". That's a BIG gamble.

Teams can't take a risk like Murray with the #1 pick.

Murray measured out pretty good at the combine...just a touch over 5’10 and 207 pounds. I’m not a diehard cards fan and because of that I’m willing to be more risky, but drafting a guy like Murray would really intrigue me. I heard someone propose moving Rosen to Pitt in a trade for Antonio Brown. Then draft Murray.

Murray, DJ, Fitz, and Brown would be fun. Then use the rest of the draft and free agency to fix the Oline and fill holes on defense.

I'm not opposed to this.
