Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians gave his team a major vote of confidence for next season, but will it come true?
Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians was recently awarded his second Coach of the Year trophy of his career, and he has now achieved that award with two different teams.

In 2012, Arians had won it after leading the Colts to a 9-3 record in the absence of Chuck Pagano, who was stricken with cancer.
After Pagano returned to full health, Arians left his job as an interim coach to accept the full-time position with the Cardinals. They have gone 21-11 in his two seasons despite playing in a division with the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers.
The Cardinals were eliminated from the first round of the playoffs this year, but that didn’t stop Arians from expressing supreme confidence in his team.
“We’re dressing in their locker room. We can write it down today,” the Cardinals head coach said while referring to the 49ers, who will host Super Bowl 50.
If the Cardinals can stay healthy, they may be able to win more than 11 games. However, they will have a potential two-time defending champion in the Seahawks and a stacked NFC to overcome.
