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.
