The mailman has just delivered the Arizona Cardinals breakup letter to Kliff Kingsbury, and it reads:
We have been together for two years, and while there have been some great moments shared, we’re just not a fit. It always comes down to the nitty gritty: like having the right play call in, being transparent about your contingency plans, and empty calorie claims offering up the same old excuse of “I need to be better” and “We just weren’t good enough today”.
Time’s up and there’s no going back! We (as an organization) have to admit that we’re wrong once again, this time in the head coaching aspect, and it’s time to start anew. Kyler Murray would absolutely flourish under Bieniemy, given his success with Patrick Mahomes. Bieniemy revived Sammy Watkins and his skills that made him a college star, and maybe he’d do the same for Christian Kirk and Andy Isabella if they stick around.
Bieniemy is a much better play caller than you are, Coach. He’s proven it at the NFL level. And while you are early in your career, the warning signs you brought coming into the league were impossible to not see. A losing record in the Big-12 conference, a horrendous defense?
You think we didn’t remember that? Don’t even get us started on your usage of DeAndre Hopkins. Remember when you punted down 2 scores with our playoff lives on the line? It’s the fact that when we needed him the most for a change of pace play, he ends up running a bubble screen meanwhile Isabella gets the target instead. Coach, you can’t even manage your time as you made Andy Reid look like a master of time management.

You never made the time to check in with your Hall of Fame and franchise player, Larry Fitzgerald, who only caught one touchdown in what may be his last season. You don’t treat someone like that who’s given so much to a fanbase that’s had way less to cheer about over the years.
An Arizona Cardinals breakup letter that will be for the best for both
Kingsbury, your refusal to actually become a head coach and delegate tasks and roles within the organization is what makes Eric a much better choice for us. You want to be an oblivious playcaller who just wants to score points but not win games? I hear there’s lots of places in the NCAA you can go.
Bieniemy has won with a similar player. His ability to get everyone involved makes the defense guess while still having to account for Mahomes’ legs. Even when having to use his backup, he can still trust him to win a critical game. We really could go on and on about how crestfallen we are over this situation. What once had so much promise has quickly turned into something that we’re not sure can work.
But this is a business baby, and whether you like it or not, this train is leaving the station. As you read this breakup letter, we’re all aboard the Eric Bieniemy train.
