12:43 PM ET 05.08 | Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman Darnell Dockett is thrilled to have new defensive coordinator Todd Bowles calling the shots. While Dockett says it's nothing personal, he "hated" the scheme run by ex-defensive coordinator Ray Horton, according to the Cardinals official website. "Personally, I had nothing against Ray," Dockett said. "But I hated that scheme. I really hated it. I played it because I needed to."But this defense is based on guys and what their ability allows them to be good at. What they were drafted for."

Not something Horton's going to clip for his resume.

I hope he likes the scheme, because the defense is going to spend a lot of time on the field.

Good one, and name & throwback logo.

I can appreciate Darnell's sentiment and how he tailored his comment but a little adaptability goes a long way. He must've slept through that NFL introductory film for rookies: 'The NFL: No Scholarships, No Tutors, Be All You Can Be.'

Take a look in the mirror, that's the scheme that could have used a little more improvement!!!

True, I doubt all of the problems were with the scheme.

It's all meaningless talk until September 5th.

That's when they stop talking and start playing. Can't come soon enough.
