I was worried when I first read about this coach. He didn't have a great track record.
Wormwood/Superbone 2019/2020 season bet: Suns win < 30 games, Wormwood wins, else 'Bone wins. 1 month avatar shame starting July 1st of winner's choosing. ACCOMPLISHED! 34 wins in a shortened season! Like it mattered. We rarely see Wormwood anyway!

It was an infinitely more enjoyable team to watch than 2 yrs ago, but this was a dumb team, that did dumb things brought to you with dumb leadership.
I don’t agree. At least we took some shots down the field before Kliff, even when we were awful. I’d rather see Kyler throw 20 interceptions than continue this offense where we throw nonstop wide receiver screens and option plays no matter the down and distance or game situation.

The players are better now, but the game is just not pretty football. It’s pathetic. We played like a scared team the whole year

The Steve Wilks-Josh Rosen year? We had some bad teams in the Bruce Arians era that were still fun, but nothing was worse than the Josh Rosen year.

If you have Kyler Murray, you don't run a draw play on 1st and 2nd down all the time. I know it is an exaggeration, but it felt that like most of the games I watched this year.

Yes we sucked with those two but it’s because our personnel was awful too. I think other teams kicked our ass.

We sucked this year because we kicked our own ass. We played extremely stupid and scared all year. I’m not saying this was the worst team, I’m saying for me it was the least enjoyable team to watch. Even our wins made me want to pull my hair out from all the lulls and mistakes.

Fair enough...though I felt like we did a lot of really dumb stuff that year too. And it felt like the players quit on Wilks...we did stupid stuff this year, but I never felt like the players quit.

Outside of coaching issues, what do we need this offseason to get better?

I think we gotta let PP go. He’s probably gonna want to get paid and he’s not worth it anymore. So we’ll have some big needs in the secondary. Kirkpatrick is ok, not sure if he’ll be back either though.

We have options at linebacker. Simmons should be a lot better after a real offseason. Reddick broke out, but he’s a free agent. Need Chandler Jones back. Not sure about Hicks and Campbell. Gardeck had some moments.

Always need bodies on the DL.

OL was solid, but wouldn’t mind upgrading it.

Hopkins is awesome...Kirk is fine as a 3rd wr, but we need a legit #2. Fitz is gonna retire and Isabella/Johnson are just 4th or 5th wr.

Arnold has some nice skills, but he’s not super reliable. Could go with Kirk as our #2 receiver if we get a top notch TE.

I’d let Drake go, he’s good, but I’d rather use his money elsewhere. Edmonds is solid and we can always draft a rb in the middle rounds. Or maybe Eno Benjamin will be ready. Or this Ward guy I’ve heard positive things about.

Need a real backup QB as well. Though we had Hundley and kept him inactive all year.

I don’t know what the FA market looks like, but in the draft, I’d look at Jaylen Waddle WR from Alabama, Kyle Pitts TE from Florida, or whoever the top CB is.

My biggest wish is to get rid of Hicks. He is so overrated just because he gets a lot of tackles after he allows his assignment to catch the ball wherever they are. Please let him go.

I agree to move on from the entire CB group except Murphy.

We never should have passed on Lamb for Simmons. Agree we need a legit WR opposite Hopkins

Is anyone more in tune with the Cardinals cap situation? I don’t know or follow the nfl/Cardinals cap stuff like I do the suns. Some quick googling makes it seem like we can clear some space by cutting a few players(Alford, Hicks, Kennard, Maxx Williams) Justin Pugh as well, but he’s a solid starter.

Kennard and Alford seem like fairly obvious cuts. Hicks has 2/18 left on his contract and either 6 or 9 million guaranteed..I’m not sure which.

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

That’s a lot of money...hopefully he can stay healthy and produce. Him and Chandler Jones is tough if they are both healthy.
