Arians: Cardinals progressing, need conditioning
Bruce Arians believes that fans would have most issues with openly gay NFL players (Shutdown Corner)Wednesday, June 19th, 2013
The subject of openly gay players in the NFL has been on a lot of minds of late, but Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians brought a different element to the equation in a recent interview with FoxSports.com . In Arians' mind, teammates and opposing players would not be the primary issue for any NFL player who decided to come out while pursuing a pro football career -- the real problem would come from the fans. “I don’t think the locker room would have any problem with it,” Arians told FOX Sports' Ross Jones by telephone in Wednesday. “The problem would be with the fans. I think especially opposing fans. Some of the things that are said are over the top and out of control that I can imagine what some fans would say to an openly gay player.” Arians made a point to emphasize that harassment would not be as likely from an openly gay player's comrades on the field. “As a coach and I can probably speak for our players too, I don’t think anybody would have any problem with it,” he said. According to NFL Spokesman Greg Aiello, the league is ready to deal with any such issues.

Cardinals quarterbacks coach Freddie Kitchens, who recently had surgery on his aorta, was well enough to briefly return to club headquarters on Thursday. “I threw his butt out of the building,” head coach Bruce Arians said Friday, according to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. “But he wanted to see his quarterbacks.” According to Somers,…
COMMENTARY | Criticize a leader's inexperience all you want, but the end-results are what will matter, and this holds true for NFL signal callers. Teams are increasingly willing to push unseasoned quarterbacks into the frying pan, although the science of unearthing a star is still a crapshoot, if the current league landscape is any inclination.
