The calm before the storm?

Posted by Darren Urban on March 15, 2012 – 8:22 pm

Friday is a big day for the Cardinals, after a relatively quiet Thursday. By tomorrow, the Cardinals, as has been noted a few places, should have tackle Levi Brown re-signed and back on the roster as they try to stabilize the offensive line. Meanwhile, the Peyton Manning watch builds to a crescendo — at least in Arizona — with the 1 p.m. Friday deadline to exercise Kevin Kolb’s roster bonus.

I have no doubt, and really haven’t for a while, that if Manning didn’t come to Arizona the Cards would stick with the three QBs they had in 2011. If they did get Manning in time, it’d be tough to keep Kolb. What would happen, many have asked, if the Cards were in limbo? If Manning hadn’t said yes but hadn’t said no, either, by the time the Cards had to decide on Kolb? That’ll be the big question.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, who out of everyone seems to have the best pulse of the Manning camp (and who seems to have been more middle-of-the-road in his approach than many) tweeted out tonight that he didn’t think Manning’s decision was imminent and, in regards to the Cards and the Kolb deadline, that Manning wouldn’t let that timeline affect his own timeline.

In the past, with free agency usually starting sooner, the first Friday of the NCAA hoops tournament — with the nice spring weather and potential spring training games to go to — always seemed to be so mellow wherever I have worked.

Not tomorrow.

    so tired of the manning thing now, losing out on free agents letting our own GOOD players go just because we waiting for a guy to decide not with us but with anyone,its so lame especially when a team like titans has offered every but they first born baby’s to him

    I would be very disappointed in Peyton if he didn’t call Whisenhunt and let me know his decision. The Cards can handle rejection and certainly will move on with Kolb and Skelton.

    Looking forward to “The Decision – 2012″. Hopefully he knows the best situation on the field is in Arizona. But it feels like he wants to stay in the AFC. Bummer, he’d be so good for the Cardinals.

    Darren, thanks for all you do. Keep it up. Has Bell and Scott left? I haven’t heard anything about them leaving without contracts yet.

    I suspect contract discussions are already on with all teams. PM obviously doesn’t need this long to decide which team is the best fit for him football-wise! Denver and Tennessee are run-heavy teams and also don’t have consistent WRs!
    A wacky way of looking at it is that PM strategically waits until saturday so that Cards are off the list due to Kolb, and then no one can bring up his reluctance to be in the NFC!
    Darren: Now that Levi is back in the fold, really all we need is a replacement for Keith right? Which FA would be ideal for that spot?

    IF Brown is re-signed tomorrow, who will buy the axe to keep the team under the cap or is there a holding period until the league looks at the contract and approves it?

    I kinda had a feeling that the assumption regarding his concern about our time table was a bit off base…his decision, his timetable…our timetable, not his problem…I think that tomorrow will come and go and we will be none the wiser to his choice…its gonna be a long day, and an even longer weekend.

    Darren, in your opinion, if we paid the bonus, do you think that would have any effect on PM deciding to choose AZ?

    According to Jason LaConfora, Cardinals have re-signed Brown. Good job considering he is the top rated OT available.

    Just get our QBs protection, thats all I care about. Good sign with Adam Snyder, now sign Bell or Kemoeatu or some other tackle/guard, and move Levi back to right tackle now that we resigned him (cant be any worse than the left side, at least the QBs will see when he misses his blocks) Grab Martin or Reiff for added depth, then use the rest of the picks on LBs, CBs, and WR (really hoping we can get the other Acho in the 4th or 5th) Someone email this plan to Graves and Whisenhunt! :D

  15. By Cucu on Mar 15, 2012 | Reply

    Well, I guess I can stop celebrating Levi Brown’s departure if he is coming back. At least I had a couple of days of hope that we would find an improved tackle in free agency. I guess there are really NO tackles at all if we had to bring back Levi “revolving door” Brown back to “stabilize” our OL. Even if Brown played well the last few games of last season, if I were Manning, I would thing it twice before deciding to join the Cards and trust my recovering health to this guy. If he played so poorly most of the time he was making good money, I can just imagine what is in the future now that most probably his salary has been substantially reduced. I truly hope for the best, but I have seen enough of Mr. Brown during the last 3 years to expect improved performance from him. Very disappointing (and very desperate if you ask me) decision by the Cards.

  16. By Sackman on Mar 15, 2012 | Reply

    Levi Brown is back good! I know some people think that is a wrong decision with the way he performed over the years. However, with the restructured contract I think the price is right. He knows our system and consistancy is very important especially when it comes to the Offensive Line.
    Darren if Manning decides to go with the Titans. Do you think going after Hasselback and dropping Kolb would be a good idea? Do you think the Titans would release Hasselback?

  17. By John the Draft Guy on Mar 15, 2012 | Reply

    I’ll trust coach Whiz’s decision. He spent a year with Kolb in meetings and in practice. He will know Kolb’s abilities better than any of us.

    I just hope that if Manning hasn’t decided, then coach Whiz makes the best decision for this football team. If Kolb is not a guy who can become a franchise QB, then let him go and continue the search for that guy.

    We will never be great without a franchise QB. If that guy is Kolb, Skelton, or someone else, we must find and establish that QB.

    I just don’t know if we have that guy right now, But I know I wouldn’t continue to pay large ammounts of money to any QB that I didn’t believe is my guy.

    No pressure Ken and Rod.

    just sign kolb rework his numbers and if manning goes with us then trade kolb to clevland for a 2 and get somthing for him. if he wants to win he will be wearing red but if hes still believing in a dream of him and his brother playing in super bowl then you can count the cards out

    Manning or not I have the utmost faith in the cardinals. Yes it would be amazing if he came to AZ and yes the cardinals would be that much better but they can get the job done with Skelton or Kolb, just look at the last half of the 2011 season. T-minus 11.5 hours til the dust settles.

    Man wtf is the risk? Cut his behind if Peyton takes a little longer. Kolb ain’t worth the money, Peyton definitely is. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and we got a good chance. Skelton played a hell of a lot better than Kolb without question really. I hope Peyton chooses us, but if it passes the deadline and he ain’t decided yet and we payed Kolb 7 million, you will have a bevy of angry fans on your hands and i’m driving that bandwagon.

    Kolb will be our starter. Why would u go after hasselbeck? When our defense stepped up in the second half last season and the o-line started blocking skeleton was barely good enough to get us wins. Kolb had much better numbers and he was playing against tougher defenses. True cardinal fans should realize the potential of kolb and look forward to seeing what he can do with a full season under the new system. Forget about PM and let’s give kolb a chance

  34. By Thomas77 on Mar 16, 2012 | Reply

    I’d hope Peyton would at least let AZ know that they aren’t high enough on his radar in time to let AZ make their QB decision. I’d think that’s just a courtesy. But who knows. I’d suspect that even if they did pay Kolb his bonus, and then PM decided on AZ, they’d make it work….

    Darren,
    Time for the Cards to get rid of Kolb-regardless of the PM decision.
    In February 2009, the AZ Cards found out if you lose the SB you are a loser- great season but still a loser. So to follow up with PM- is PM the same guy who has a losing record in the playoffs and is in total ownership of one SB ring to show for 13 NFL seasons.
    My Cards’ strategy is to:
    1) continue to improve the defense
    2) get some explosive players(WR & RB) for the offense
    3) get Levi resigned (all OTs get beat in the NFL)
    4) continue to search for a franchise QB-if not Skelton
    5) hope that Whiz and Graves are better performers than their NFL peers

  38. By D on Mar 16, 2012 | Reply

    I bet Whiz and Graves already know they won’t get PM, 1pm comes, Kolb and Skelton are the QB’s next year. Still need to find a left tackle signed soon and find a WR maybe next week, which if they can, then the 13 draft pick can be figured out to be the best pass rusher available..

    Hi Darren

    Since the Broncos are on there way to see Manning work out I would assume he will not decide on where he goes today. So the balls in our court to decide what we do. Do we cut ties with Kolb or do we hand the ball to Skelton in hopes Peyton chooses us. Tic tic tic boooom.

  41. By Steve W on Mar 16, 2012 | Reply

    Can’t say as I blame Manning for not wanting to feel rushed into a decision by a situation outside of his control. That’s just not fair to him. It stinks for the Cards, but that’s the way the cards fall sometimes. No pun intended! :)

    That said, I think we stick with Kolb no matter how the PM situation plays out today. Despite the hype over Manning maybe coming to the desert, I’d still love to see what Kolb has to offer our team after a full off-season of working with his teammates. Only concern for me is that concussion he suffered – whether it makes him shy away from contact and affect his game – but the guy seems like a tough player, so I’m willing to believe he plays through it.

    And I’m not convinced the Cards have let anyone go due to free agency they wouldn’t have chased whether Manning was interested in us or not. I don’t believe the coaching staff would do that on a whim. Instead I think that the price was just too high to match. Marshall was a great player for the Cards, but Miami obviously were willing to pay through the nose for a player that – from my understanding – was set up as a role player in our defensive system. Too high a price to match for someone who wasn’t going to be in the mix on every down.

    I think AZ makes the most football sense for PM. I think these other teams have something else working for them, but makes no sense to me. At this point in your career, I figured Cardinals would be a good fit minus a left tackle. Darren, do you think Cardinals brass have….”lost their confidence” enough in Kolb to the point where they might cut him and take their chances with PM, Skelton, and bring in another veteran qb?

    Darren, do you even think the Cards have a chance at this point in time. I mean its getting late, 9:10 a.m. in AZ. That roster bonus is coming in, in a couple hours. No matter home much i would want Peyton to come to AZ I just dont think its possible. Not only that, But peyton is working out with the Broncos today and Duke. So that might very well end up being his choice. this is going to be a very stressful day!

    Since there is not a left tackle in the draft at 13, Cards need to sign Bell in free agency, which should eat up most of our cap. Then you have the options in the draft for either pass rushers Ingram or Upshaw, or MLB Keuchcly or go best WR left on the board….

    Everyone in the Arizona franchise should listen to this, including Ken and Rod.\, because the cardinals future can depend on it.

    AZ should pay Kolb the bonus, but still keep going after Manning. If Kolb sits behind Manning for 2 or 3 years, Kolb can be 3 times better than he is now, and he can help the cardinals in the future. If Manning wants to come to Arizona, release a couple players that Arizona doesn’t need, maybe like Skelton and upgrade those positions in the draft. This can give every Arizona fan what they dream of (A Super Bowl).

    Kolb and Skelton had almost identical numbers except where it counted. Wins/losses. Skelton since he’s been with Cards is now 8-4 over 2 seasons. Pretty good for a rookie. If we start Kolb I look for another losing season. Unless he has developed some poise in the pocket over the off-season.

    I commend Michael Bidwill, Rod Graves and Co. for pursuing Manning. Cardinal teams of the 80s and 90s were never as bold about winning as this franchise is now.

    With that said the Manning Camp still hasn’t ruled Arizona out as I truly feel they feel its the best offer for Peyton out there. But im ok with Kevin Kolb getting a full season of OTAs, minicamps and training camp and then let all judge him. He’s as talented as any FA QB available this year.

    Darren- the Cardinals could still use a #3 WR. Any talk of Hines Ward coming from the Cardinals camp?

    It appears that Peyton wants to stay in the AFC since he is going to have “tryouts” with the Broncos and Titans.

    However, if he changed his mind and somehow told the Cards that he wanted to sign with them and the Cards had already gave Kolb his bonus today, what do you think that the Cards would do?

I’d love to see Darnell – Calais and Company punish peyton for his childish egotistical games he’s been playing. Ya never know they still may get the chance in the Super Bowl. Doubt it though, peyton gonna have more than a price on his arrogant head, he’s gonne have a target on it and I can’t wait to see that helmet, still strapped to his head, leave his body and roll around on the ice cold rock hard turf! He won’t make it through the year.

    As I said before, I was glad to see the Cardinals put their hat into the ring with this Manning situation. But it seemed pretty clear pretty quick that we weren’t really a player. After he visited, there was practiaclly no buzz at all about him landing here while the Broncos and Titans were being mentioned everywhere you looked or listened. Did Manning just not have any real interest in coming here? Maybe, and maybe that’s the reason why the Cardinals appeared less aggressive. But the fact is that they CLEARLY appeared less aggressive. Fine. Whether either the Cardinals OR Manning may have decided early on that it just wasn’t gonna happen, I’m fine with that.

    What I am NOT fine with is the fact that while we were supposedly in the running for Peyton Manning, we weren’t doing jack @!%# in regard to FA and that’s about as much as we have accomplished to this point. For the second consecutive FA period, we CLEARLY needed an up-grade at WR and TO THIS DAMN DAY, signing Chansi Stuckey is all we’ve done. Well, no, Chaz Shilens also visited our parking lot…OK, I forgot about that. My bad. But COME ON, MAN….again, the lack of results is just pathetic.

    Skelton got lucky to play the second half when our defense and the running game stepped up. He is a very inaccurate passer. Kolb is the best option. All the so called fans who believe in skeleton so much that u are ready to dump kolb are crazy. With a full off season the offense will click with kolb

    “Worn out” is what must’ve happened to Ken W. and Co….

    “A league source tells PFT that some of the suitors for his services are tiring of the process. As the source put it, at least two of the remaining teams in the chase are getting “worn out,” but they are putting up with it because the prize continues to be, well, getting Peyton Manning.”

    I’d bet that the Cardinals were one of the “suitors.” Really though, does sitting at your desk talking on the phone wear you out?

    There’s No Whining in football.

    This team wasted ALOT of money today! Kolb taking a dime is robbery! Another season of crap!

    A veteran QB, behind Kolb or Skelton would do just fine…someone who will mentor the two, and help with game planning…now that Peyton is off the radar..Also a good WR would help our chances next year as well.
