That is precisely what I was thinking. I think it would actually make sense to try to bring Haley back. At least he was involved in their better seasons, and KC has proven that nobody is a fit there under what is going on now. But like Horton, he won't get brought in to even interview for their HC position. They are an organization that continually brings in a guy that makes little sense.
I wouldn't be surprised at all in all seriousness if they made a run at a guy like McDaniels. They just don't seem to get it. He's been a head coach, had a little success to start, but lost his team and fans, and everything else, but he's obviously a guy that is intelligent and that they could get on the cheap. So they'd go after him.
I also wouldn't be surprised if they went after Wade Phillips, or a college coach who has had a good year or two like Jim Mora.
The whole way those guys run that organization is completely baffling.
Whisenunt is obviously a good guy and tries hard, and has coached them to more success than they've had in the past many many years, but it was also obvious that his system required good players. He sort of blew it on his own though with how he handled the QB situation. Max Hall isn't even in the league anymore, and is happier that way as he's in line for a head coaching job very soon, as he was just too small to play in the NFL, but the fact that he was the starter for a good chunk of one year and two years later is coaching in college and is still in his mid-20's says a lot about the talent evaluators in AZ when it comes to field players and coaches. Don't get me wrong... I think Haley was the perfect guy to work with Warner... but not to work with any QB. I think Horton is the perfect DC on a team that actually tries and would be a very good head coach, but the incompetence above him really hurts him when it comes promotion time.
Who knows.... the Cards will probably go get Joe Bugel again. Seems like something they'd do. They are just absolutely baffling.
