The Arizona Cardinals went out on Monday night and did the most Cardinals thing ever. They completed an epic end-of-season collapse for the second year.

Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury has struggled during the second half of the season since before he entered the NFL ranks. And it shows that, even with a 7-0 sprint to start the season, the trend won’t end any time soon.

It’s time for the Cardinals to move past Kingsbury unless they want to remain stuck in perpetual mediocrity since the head coach’s second-half struggles began during his days at Texas Tech.

And really, who wants to be stuck in mediocrity? For two seasons, Kingsbury has had a talented team in front of him. And for two years, he wasted that talent. The guy was a mistake of a hire from the beginning, having finished his career at Texas Tech with a 35-40 record, including a laughable 17-35 against conference opponents.

It’s time to at least consider a coaching change. So who should the Cardinals put in Kingsbury’s seat if they go that direction?
