Bowles: Bettcher the “right choice”

Posted by Darren Urban on February 18, 2015 – 1:34 pm

For the first time at the Scouting combine, Todd Bowles spoke as a head coach when he got on the podium Wednesday. The Jets’ new boss hasn’t forgotten about his old place of business yet. After his spin in front of the cameras, there was a chance to ask him about his replacement as Cardinals defensive coordinator, James Bettcher. Bettcher was the outside linebackers coach under Bowles.

“It could have been any one of those guys (on staff),” Bowles said. “But I have all the trust in the world in Bruce (Arians) as he had in me. So I’m confident he made the right choice.”

Bowles chuckled at the idea Bettcher had a big job ahead of him, saying he was worried about his own big job in New York.

“Bettch is a good football coach, and you’ve got to remember he’s got about four guys he had on the staff last year that are good coaches,” Bowles said. “They’ll work together and they understand what has to be done. I have confidence they’ll get it done.”

    Everybody in the locker room and all of us Cardinals fans should have total confidence in James Bettcher.
    And I am so glad we got a deal done with Larry Fitzgerald. Steve Keim is doing everything right so far.

    Letting Bowles go and counting on Carson to be healthy for the whole season are already the two huge mistakes that have cost the Cards the 2015 season.

    The Cardinals had no say in Coach Bowles decision to leave the team. They gave him an extension and more money. What more do you think they could have done?
    Did you expect them to fire BA and make him head coach? Maybe they should have kidnapped his family to force him to stay. lol
    As for Carson, you do realize that free agency and the draft haven’t happened yet don’t you? Not that either of those would provide anyone better than Drew Stanton to back him up but, still.
    You’re over reacting. Not to mention that you don’t seem to understand that the NFL is a business first and foremost.
