So much great stuff in here about Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians. Easy guy to root for.
“Everybody needs a guy that believes in him, and Bruce was that guy for me. He made me believe I could do anything.”
“If you’re being asked to do a drill and your coach can’t tell you why you’re doing it, then don’t do it.”
“Guys respect him because whatever comes out of his mouth is true,” says Alexander, the Cardinals linebacker. “You might not like how he says it, but it’s truthful. Being around this league for 10 years, it’s rare to find that brutal honesty, that guy that doesn’t have a back-door agenda. It doesn’t matter who you are, he’s going to tell you when your stuff stinks. If you’re not confident in who you are, that can be scary.”
“My wife did a great job selling the kids on the next stop,” Arians says. “She was the hype man, telling them how great it was going to be, all the fun things that were in the next place. That was hard when the next stop was Starkville.”
