Pro Football Talk is reporting that there is "increasing chatter" that Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians will receive a job offer to be the Arizona Cardinals' head coach. Arians has already missed out on opportunities with the Chargers and Bears, losing out on the job to other candidates. The Cardinals are insistent on retaining DC Ray Horton, which may have been an issue for some other potential hires.
Arizona needs to find a new direction. They are the doormat of the NFC West, a division that has become highly competitive over the last two seasons. Figuring out who will be the quarterback, whether it be a free agent or a rookie found in the 2013 NFL Draft, is the key. The Cards have a solid defense and it's just a matter of finding an option who can get the ball to Larry Fitzgerald and take some pressure of their inconsistent and oft-injured running backs.
