And stop drafting ILB in the first round that can barely get on the field

I just realized that with that loss against the Rams in the postseason, it does bring Kliff's record in his last 7 games to once again....

2-5

At least he's consistent.

IMO, both are correct. The Cardinals put too much on his plate when he clearly hasn't shown the ability to win when it counts. And he pouts, a lot.

Is it wrong for me to root against the Rams because I’m assuming most of their fair weather fans are also Laker bandwagoneers and I want them to suffer?

Not wrong at all. As a Suns fan, I agree with this line thinking.

He ain’t it. Quick to finger point, never ever takes the responsibility and the body language on the field shows it too. Doesn’t have the work ethic has said he doesn’t watch much game film he thinks his feel for game is elite so he simply doesn’t need to.

Dude is an athlete but he has none of the smarts or intangibles to be a winner and leader at his position.

I would welcome a trade.

Not to say the front office is right. I would also welcome a change there. I would like a clean slate

QB is by far the most important position in the game, and you can't win if you don't have a top tier QB. Kyler is probably on the fringe of top ~5? But man the GM and HC need to go. But that won't happen. So they will trade him for lesser players and picks, then botch the picks and rinse/repeat.

Team was absolutely rolling until all those injuries happened…we looked like a completely new team without Hopkins in there for Kyler.

I know Kyler doesn’t run as much to avoid injury, but that’s kinda what makes him special. If he’s not going to use his elite athleticism much, I’m not sure he’s worth the massive contract he’s going to get in the next couple years. I wouldn’t trade him, but I don’t trust Kliff and Keim to build the right team or use the team properly around Kyler.

Kliff Kingsbury has let Kyler act like an entitled brat since we drafted him. Kingsbury doesn't know how to instill discipline in a team. How could the front brass expect a lot of success with a rookie NFL head coach and a rookie QB? Until there's a divorce in that relationship and Kyler has a coach that requires the accountability and astute knowledge of the opponent (which requires studying film and a lot of prep that Kyler apparently doesn't put time into), you're going to fail. There's no position in professional sports that requires a special person that can command the respect of his teammates and lead them like the QB. I don't ever recall seeing Kyler on the sidelines hyping his guys, working with them when they'd make mistakes to lift them up, being a leader regularly. You might be able to carry a team in high school that way and to many degrees, college as well. The NFL is a mixture of rookies, long-term veterans and guys that were the best at every level they played football. They need a great leader behind center. I don't think Kyler is that guy.
What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton
