Once again, Kliff Kingsbury proved last night that he is the worst coach on the Arizona Cardinals depth chart, and it’s not even close.
A few things can sum up the Arizona Cardinals 2022 season. Kyler Murray’s regression is certainly one of them, but he has far too many backers to see through the carnage just yet. Steve Keim’s inability to bring fresh talent to the desert in any way except via trades is another. Third, and by far the most compelling; a sideshow act that are Kliff Kingsbury’s perpetual sideline gaffes.
It’s no secret by now that, as divided as Cardinals fans are on key issues like whether Kyler is the guy or not moving forward, one common denominator unites them: That Kliff Kingsbury is ill-equipped as an NFL head coach.
So how did Twitter react? In case you haven’t seen them yet, check out these top five Twitter reactions.
Twitter pans Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury
I actually disagree with Alex Clancy’s take. Kliff goes as far as his talent? The guy couldn’t win in the college ranks with Patrick Mahomes playing quarterback! If anything, Kliff threatens to drag talent down to his level.
Now here’s one from Clancy that I agree with. But I’d like to elaborate further. Clancy talks about a gimmick play, and he’s certainly correct. But when has Kliff not tried gimmicky plays since he got here in 2019? And when have they sustained long-term success?
Honestly, they did make adjustments in the second half and somehow, Kliff managed to make the gameplan even worse. He turned it over on downs twice, and it almost single-handedly led to a blowout loss. Case in point, Kliff, a veteran coach these days, panicked when his team went down 24-10.
Just spoke for the entire Red Sea, Luke. I think, and correct me if I’m wrong, that it’s safe to say that if the NFL were like CBS’s Survivor, the “Red Sea would have spoken” about a month ago.
Sadly, Cameron’s probably right. Kliff signed an extension and is probably going nowhere. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have discussions about potential replacements for the coach, considering how badly he’s run the Arizona Cardinals this season. And he’s also right regarding the team’s overall look: This is the NFL, and every player on the roster should at least be serviceable.
I could list about 100 tweets in an article like this. But I also don’t want to eventually bore you. Anyway, Kliff’s trending on Twitter at the time of this writing, so you can check out the rest of the madness over there. Do you got your own thoughts to share regarding Kingsbury’s overall ineptitude? Let me know in the comments.
