Agreed. But making the move now gives them 3 weeks to prepare, including a scrimmage game with the Packers.

Per Michael Bidwell, as reported by ESPN, Denny is not getting fired right now, at least.

Arizona vice president and general counsel Michael Bidwell told The East Valley Tribune and The Arizona Republic that while the team's 1-6 start was "unacceptable", the Cardinals aren't ready to remove Green as the head coach.

"I'm here to tell you there isn't going to be any coaching change or ultimatum or vote of confidence," Bidwill told the Tribune.

When asked if that meant Green would stay through the rest of the season, Bidwill told the newspaper that "this is not what I want to be talking about right now. I cannot believe we are sitting here 1-6."

Bidwell told The Republic in a phone interview that he demanded an explanation from Green and Cardinals VP of football operations Rod Graves after the Cardinals' latest loss at previously winless Oakland.

"What I asked them, frankly, was, 'How in the hell did we get to 1-6?'" Bidwill told the newspaper. "Close losses don't count. We're 1-6, and we shouldn't be. I wanted to know what we were doing to correct it."
