Ray Horton pissed he was passed over for the Arizona HC gig and Arizona replaced him with one of the guys that ruined Philly's D. Lmao. If our D didn't look pretty good the second half of last season I'd be clamoring for Horton here.

I wonder how mad you have to get to talk yourself out of a NFL coaching position like that?

Arians was already a somewhat poor hire, and losing Horton's a disaster. To complete the set, Bowles is a disaster. Good luck, Cards!

I still think McDermott should be fired personally. With the DCs out there now we could def upgrade

WOW!!! I'm guessing Horton will try to go to a college to get some HC experience? Someone has to be calling for him to be a DC though (Imagine if Chud got him O.o)

Horton ran a 3-4 in Arizona.

There's nobody out there right now who I'd see as such a significant upgrade it'd be worth firing a DC who's doing a good job and who's well liked by his players.

With the Arizona job official filled and Jay Gruden staying as OC in Cincy I expect we'll hear tomorrow that Hue Jackson is our next OC.

Or at least I hope.

Why would you want to upgrade from a guy with a top 12 defense to a guy running the worst defense in the NFL? while switching the scheme?

Yea Im really shocked also.
Don't Horton and Arians have connections back in Pittsburgh? I would think that Arians would have kept Horton alone for that reason.

Even though Cardinals' Defense was awful, Horton is one of the better DC in this league. I just dont know if I'd take Bowles over Horton though he have done a pretty good job in the past with Miami.

I would love to have Horton here over Sean, but if any coach on this team earned a chance to come back it was Sean.

LaCanfora thinks Horton will be Chudzinski's DC in Cleveland.

Umm, the Cardinal's defense wasn't awful, they were average to good this year. They've been markedly improved since Horton took over there.

They're not a bad defensive team, but the effort they gave toward the end of the season statistically was bad. Still Horton is one of the better DC in this league. The Cardinals defense was the main reason why they started 4-0.
