Fans patience is running thin with Arizona Cardinals offensive coordinator Mike McCoy
ESPN’s Josh Weinfuss summed it up quite well with the simple statement, “Arizona’s offense has been dismal under offensive coordinator Mike McCoy.” With the Valley of the Sun burning with the #FireMcCoy movement, it’s time for the Arizona Cardinals Steves (Wilks and Keim) to take a hard look at the only thing that doesn’t lie – the stats.
McCoy came to Arizona with a career coaching record of 28-38 and riding a 6 game losing streak after being fired by the Broncos as their OC in November 2017. He promptly extended that streak to 10 games with the Cardinals starting 0-4 before finally beating the Niners with a win that can generously be described as ugly.
Granted, the Cardinals certainly aren’t “show stoppers” this year, but the fact that two of their games were only lost by 2 or 3 points and they put up a decent performance against the Minnesota Vikings in a winnable game, shows there’s potential there but something’s missing. That missing ingredient is effective play calling.
There are three areas where McCoy is failing substantially. So substantially, in fact, that the armchair quarterbacks actually have it right this time.
