The new “Flight Plan” episode drops

Posted by Darren Urban on February 28, 2018 – 8:37 am

The newest episode of the Cardinals’ docu-series “Flight Plan” will be posted tonight on Facebook Watch. The second installment — titled “Mobilizing”– will go up at 6 p.m. The focus will be on the scouts and the annual trip to the Senior Bowl, especially to look at the quarterbacks. There’s also the moment Steve Wilks announces in a radio interview that Larry Fitzgerald is coming back to play this season.

“Flight Plan” is posted every couple of weeks. It can be seen on (you do not need a Facebook account) and as it worked last time, the episode will be posted on Thursday at 6 p.m.

    So, per Urb earlier post, updated a bit:

    Bridgewater, Keenum, Glennon, McCarron, McCown, Gabbert, Bradford, Stanton (maybe Tyrod Taylor), Mallett, Osweiler, Yates, Tolzein, Henne, Matt Moore, Chase Daniel, Manuel, Weeden, Fitzpatrick, Cousins (0% chance imo), 20 or so among those likely available. More cuts likely coming too.

    LOTS of FAs, not all listed even. Who’s the Foles in that group? Or is Foles the trade? Chase Daniels dark horse?

    Hmmn. Wonder who our QB whisperer is? Who best to judge their ability, that’s my Q. Tom Moore around? Arians?

    Maybe as simple as McCoy, Leftwich, Wilks, Keim quartet?

    my “to do” list as an armchair generalmanager for the next time:

    1 check the scouting reports for my wishlist:

    1.round pick the best defensive player available, at the moment its vea, smith or vander esch
    2. round trade for qb
    3. round ragnow c as an understudy for one year for boemh
    3.comp pick gesicki TE
    4.uptraded for the 5 and seventh ballage as a WR who should learn from fitz
    4.comp samuels Retourner (may PP live in peace) and RB/WR if neccesary

    try to trade for foles. my wishlist are foles, mccarron, keenum, but, i doublt either foles nor macarron will choose our team. look at jackson, he waitet patiently for mccarron, and i bet a bottle of “edelbrand” against one of your bottles of ,ah, whiskey, that maccarron is at cleveland next season. foles, if traded, and i thing he will, will like to follow defilipo to the vikings, but, the trade will be between the cards and the eagles. and we need to convince him, that we are the best destination for him.
    and, if we get foles for next year, norwell will be paid too. foles about 7 mio, norwell about 12 mio, thats carson palmers money.
    but, i would not offer more then a second pick this year and a conditional second pick for next year (thats offer, not the result).

    as i expect booth out of competition, next man up would be keenum, not so cheap as foles, but a solid player, so start negotiations with his agent. i would offer him foles money (7 mio) for 18 and brady money for 19, when we have a lot of cap space. and add hefty incentives.

    and also contact hubbarts and butlers agent.

    oh, and to resign frostee, for a one year farewell player coach contract. he deserves it. and he would be a safe backup.

    Music to my ears “it all starts with the offensive and defensive lines” AND “there is nothing more demoralizing to a defense, when the offense can run the ball”.

    Those above words are not sexy, but if done well = championship football.

    Keim:/ Wilks claimed that there are about 4-5 free agents we would want to bring back. My guess on those 4-5 free agents (no particular order):

    1. Josh Bynes
    2. Elijaaa Penny
    3. Alex Boone
    4. Tramon Williams
    5. Kareem Martin

    An outside slim and remote chance:

    6. Aaron Brewer
    7. Troy Niklas
    8. Drew Stanton
    9. Adrian Peterson

    Better odds of shooting a rubber band and hitting the moon chance:

    10. Barkley
    11. Gabbert
    12. Kerwynn Williams
    13. Jaron Brown
    14. John Brown
    15. Brit Golden
    16. Watford
    17. Rucker
    18. Dansby
    19. Branch
    20. Bethel (fitting that Bethel is on the bottom)

    Just FYI…FWIW….whatever. Saw a blurb on questioning if the HB might be on his way out in Arizona? Didn’t seem to be anything tangible behind it….but it took note of how Keim, speaking at the combine, did NOT say that HB would be part of the team in 2018. Really, does that mean anything?? Don’t know….I mean, it’s not like Keim went down the roster specifying who was / was not gonna be part of the team in 2018, so….

    It’s that time of year….not much going on……but media people gotta write about something.

    RE: Mathieu

    Mathieu is due a $5 million bonus on March 14 and another $13.75 million of salary in 2018-19 becomes guaranteed. That is the pressure point in the contract that has caused this decision and led to the comments (and tweets) yesterday.

    Darren –

    Thanks for clarity. Yes, I knew the bonus numbers were rattling around in this.

    Re: The Badger

    I saw this too, and what was interesting was that about five minutes before I saw an interview with Steve Wilks, in which he was talking about how excited he was to have Tyrann a part of our defense and how his physical play and versatility was the kind of player he was used to having in Carolina! Kinda makes one wonder who is driving this ship, the football professionals who do the actual work of winning games or the wanabee football suits in the FO! Perhaps that is why we are the oldest franchise without a Lombardi in the NFL and would be better off if our owner would hold is office people more accountable for the bad contracts they write rather than making the players take it in the shorts for the mistakes of the suits.
    I remember when Keim gave this contract to the Honey Badger following his second knee surgery two years ago and fans were quite vocal in questioning it then. I also remember Darren defending Keim with the argument that this was a good decision for building our defense for the future.
    Where is the accountability here for non-football personnel? Anybody who has been around sports knows that there are always injuries, there is no guaranteed timetable for an athlete’s recovery (everybody heals at a different pace) and that future activity and production has as much to do with the psychological toughness/motivation of the athlete as anything. Last season, while Ty didn’t bounce back as fast as he did earlier he still was a hard worker and contributed a lot more than most to a secondary that had been gutted by Keim. He also represents the Cards in Phoenix through being active with kids programs and he is a representative on the NFLPA; he’s a leader in the locker room who new guys will listen to because of what he has overcome. I have a feeling that the Honey Badger could have the year of his career with this new coaching staff, too bad if Keim mucks it up.
    In most organizations the $5million dollar bonus would have been planned for in the budget–it’s not like it’s coming out of the blue as a big surprise!

    HB being paid like a star, play is average, liability in many situations. Contract was too generous in recognizing his potential, value. Live and learn, meanwhile gotta cut as HB righteous about all players contracts should be fully guaranteed. Belies capitalism, risk allocation. Betting Keim cuts, HB wont take pay cut…
    HB: great guy, bad contract.

    Very well-done production by all those involved! Kudos to y’all!

    Other than the feel good nature of the Badger’s contract it was a massive contract for a player that was coming off a second major injury. It had Bob Sanders written all over it. In my opinion a lot of decisions are made based on fan likability and general PR over what is truly best for the team. I know you are all going to HATE on me for this idea but Fitz is not worth 17 million dollars in cap hit as a middle 30s slot WR who can not take the top off coverages. BUT do fans really want him moving up the lists of best ever wearing another color. I don’t and that is why he is getting paid. I think Ego and putting butts in the stadium matters in the big picture. Think Emmitt Smith or Jake Plummer being drafted( however Jake did work out.. What a great season! that was for Card Fans)
