Arians: God makes left tackles


New Cardinals coach Bruce Arians knows he can wing it at certain spots.

But he thinks he’s blessed with the return of left tackle Levi Brown, because his kind of talent isn’t easy to find.

“The priority, quarterback and left tackle, is now the vogue,” Arians said, via Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. “You can find anybody to run and catch. You can find guys who play in the middle.

Left tackle and quarterback, God makes them.”

Arians continues to refer to Brown as an “elite” player, using the word three times Thursday, as Brown is returning to work after last year’s triceps tear.

“When he’s at his best, I think he’s an elite player,” Arians said.

That might be a bit of a stretch, but the Cardinals are clearly better with him than without him. And while quarterback Carson Palmer’s no deity, they have to be better than the ugly-as-sin play the Cardinals got from those two positions last year.

    How does one become a head coach in the NFL when they don’t understand 7th grade biology?

    Hope Levi can stay healthy…all the talent in the world is mute if the guy is sitting on the sidelines. It’s cute that Arians is so pumped up over the Cards talent, the fans always knew it was there, the trick is to avoid the injury bug so it can shine through. The Cards still lack depth and injuries will kill a career quicker than anything else…ask Ken Whisenhunt, the winningest coach in Cardinal history!

    I’m not so sure God likes the Big Red though.

    “When he’s at his best”
    Not often and pretty much sums it up.

    Receivers and running backs are the work of the Devil.

    So if Arians is a bust as a coach and can’t make the playoffs, is Arians really an agent of the Devil, or did God send Arians to punish the Cardinals for something? What would that say about Arians, did God make you too Bruce, and if so did he make you to be an asset to the people around you or design you at birth to be a future poison and instrument of vengeance? If I can get answers to those questions I have a few more I would love to ask.

    I’m betting a lot of credibility points on the Cardinals flopping this year. This coach sounds confused and delusional.

    That can’t be, since human beings made God(s).

    Does this mean that CB isn’t the toughest position to play? Detroit’s coach lied to us.
