“You watch him and see what you think then,” Cable said. “People don’t have to be accountable, they can say or think what they want, and that’s OK. But what they really don’t realize is how they could screw up a young person, because all these kids read all the Twitter and social media. One minute they’re loved and the next minute they can’t do this or they can’t do that, it was a bad pick, or whatever. Fortunately … Germain is a strong-minded, strong-willed kid. … So I just think watching him play, it will be kind of cool, whoever they are, they’ll kind of eat their words.”
Here’s a look at the NFC West:
- Cardinals coach Bruce Arians is on record as saying his current job will be his last stop in coaching. Jason Cole of Bleacher Report asked Arians if he could end up like Tom Coughlin and lobby for a job on the cusp of 70. “Tom don’t have any other hobbies,” Arians said when asked to differentiate between himself and the former Giants coach. Ultimately, Arians says that he’ll know when it’s time to walk away. “When I don’t want to go to the office anymore, that’s when I know it’s going to be time,” the 63-year-old said. “I was excited this morning for practice. I couldn’t wait to get up this morning to go to practice. If and when it happens that I don’t enjoy being around the guys, I don’t enjoy teaching.”
- Speaking of NFC West coaches, all indications are that there is no reason for worry about Pete Carroll’s immediate future with the Seahawks, despite a lack of chatter on his contract, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times writes. Carroll turns 65 in September.
- This week, we learned that Nick Foles is unhappy with the Rams and coach Jeff Fisher indicated that the quarterback’s time in Los Angeles could be short-lived.
- Free agent wide receiver James Jones says that he would “love” to join the 49ers, though he’s not being picky at this stage of the offseason.
