Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury over course of final month or so, one has to wonder what he was thinking

A season full of ups and downs ended on Sunday in Los Angeles for the Arizona Cardinals. A record of 8-8 and just missing the playoffs to stew on for the next eight months.

The Cardinals had a number of injuries throughout the season that could have derailed them off the tracks much sooner than weeks 16 and 17. They didn’t give up and had enough talent to make it to the final Sunday afternoon of the season while in contention.

However it did not come easy. One of the reasons why it didn’t come easy was the multitude of questionable decisions head coach Kliff Kingsbury made throughout the season.

Sure, he made some gutsy calls that people don’t give him enough credit for, but there were a number of decisions, particularly over the final five or six games that just left many of us scratching our heads.

Given this was just his second season, some of the decisions ultimately could have cost him his job. If he makes some of these same decisions next season, he likely doesn’t come back for a fourth season.

Changes will be made most certainly in the offseason.  For now though, let’s take a look at some of those questionable decisions.
