The Cardinals are a hot mess, and the worst may still be to come

The words of the Cardinals’ new head coach, Jonathan Gannon…

So far this offseason, Arizona has signed no one remotely close to impactful based on a sense of past success. Instead, the Cardinals have focused on small building blocks, the majority of which have come in the form of veteran linebackers.

In fact, the Cardinals have already signed three linebackers in the past three weeks, putting Arizona on pace to have a roster full of them by the beginning of the upcoming season.

Now, this is nothing against newly acquired Josh Woods, Krys Barnes, or Kyzir White; however, Gannon’s love for one-year contracts is not exactly the direction that this team should be headed in.

These moves have given the Cardinals a ranking of 32nd by and a D rating from CBS sports. 

After finishing with a 4-13 record last year, not to mention the complete breaking of character throughout the locker room, Arizona should be thinking long, not short.

With now the youngest coaching staff in the NFL, including a 40-year-old head coach, the front office is there for the future, at least one would hope.

“Franchise” quarterback Kyler Murray is not expected to return until the midway point of next season, five-time Pro Bowl WR DeAndre Hopkins is halfway out the door, and the Cardinals’ two most notable free agents have already departed (Zach Allen & Byron Murphy Jr.).

These events have led Arizona to the bottom of the barrel when it comes to Super Bowl odds in 2024. As things stand pre-draft, the Cardinals have the worst odds at +20000, even below the Houston Texans.

It is a hot mess, and the worst may still be to come.
