FTP: Arians the story around the league

12/24/2013

Flush the Pocket will be your daily morning dose of the Arizona Cardinals. It’ll recap the top storyline from the previous day and give you a look at what everyone is saying locally and nationally.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- It’s one thing for the players and general manager to say Bruce Arians should be the coach of the year.

It’s an entire different thing when that sentiment spreads throughout the country. After Arizona beat Seattle 17-10 on Sunday, the groundswell of support for Arians to repeat as coach of the year began to grow.

Tom Pelissero of USA Today Sports wrote about it.

As did Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News.

A month ago, I wrote that Arians was making a case for another coach of the year nod and that was when the Cardinals were 7-4. Now that they’re 10-5, it’s hard to argue against him.
