I don't know why he went and did that to himself. Then again I don't know why other teams don't show more intrest in him.

Considering Green wanted to work on the west coast, Arizona was the most likely option. I like this move for Arizona, as they've got a great young running back in Shipp and a great young reciever in Boldin, so if they pick up a good qb somewhere they could have a really good offense. Of course this is the Arizona Cardinals, so they'll probably find some way to fuck it up.

So do they take a QB in the draft or do they think defense? My pick would be to take Eli Manning. I think he's as good as his brother was at this point and look what Peyton has done in Indy.

I always wondered why Dennis Green was out of football so long. I hope he can be successfull, as he is somebody I respect. With a new stadium FINALLY getting built out there (isnt it?) and a couple of offensive stars in the making, I can see him doing some very good things out in the dessert.

I had heard that he was in line for the Oakland job. God only knows why he took this one.

Apparently, and speaking of coembacks, Art Shell may get the Raiders job...

Quoted from ESPN:

'sources close to Green said Tuesday night he believes the Raiders situation could be "treacherous," even given the coach's long and close relationship with owner Al Davis.'

Ouch. Given the fact that the team is pretty old, the young players are unproven, and Davis, would you want that job?

The only thing going for the Raiders is that they were in the Super Bowl last year. They're a decent team now, but when Gannon, Rice, Brown and all of the other really old Raiders finally hang 'em up, the team's gonna fall and fall fast. The Cardinals have nowhere to go but up, and the Raiders are falling too fast to turn around before they hit rock bottom.

Why not make a run at Peyton? They have more cap than anyone in football, and if Bidwell is serious about competing, then he'd be a good centerpiece, and could free up their pick to take somone on the defensive side of the ball or Robert Gallery.
