first_img Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact TEMPE, Ariz. — A day after initial reports surfaced that said Steve Wilks was all but at the end of the road as Cardinals head coach, he spoke a bit more about his faith and resiliency amid a 3-12 season.“It’s going to be good being around family, enjoying some quality time around them,” he said on Monday, Christmas Eve.Wilks said he has spoken this season to peers like Marvin Lewis of the Bengals, Todd Bowles of the Jets and Sean McDermott of the Bills and Ron Rivera of the Panthers. What has he learned in his first attempt as a head coach?Patience was the first word out of Wilks’ mouth, perhaps a funny thing considering it’s patience that might be up in Arizona, where quarterback, coordinator and cornerback shakeups marked pivot points this year.Related LinksReport: Fitzgerald would want Wilks back, might not get his wishRapid Reactions: Arizona Cardinals blown out by Rams in home finaleCardinals’ loss to Rams brings new mark for home futilitySteve Wilks receives support from former DB Peanut TillmanAfter loss to Rams, Cardinals’ Wilks remains focused on job at handAfter a 31-9 loss at home to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday night with a game in Seattle to play, Wilks spoke more in depth about his time with Arizona and the reports regarding his job security that he said he hasn’t listened to.The embattled coach said he would leave Arizona — whenever that might be — with integrity just as he’d entered.Asked Monday just why he’s met tough questions about the turmoil with steady, respectful answers, Wilks flashed his sense of humor that’s been hidden amid his football head coach exterior.“I always tell the coaches this,” he said, “there’s always a bubble over the players’ head. As you sit there trying to talk to them, if you really understood what that bubble was saying back, you’d be amazed. There’s a bubble over my head, and if you really knew exactly how I felt inside and what I was saying, you would question my faith at times. 17 Comments   Share   Top Stories “My mom’s in town, so I don’t want to say those words,” he added, smiling.center_img (AP Photo/John Amis, File) The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retireslast_img read more
