Thanks Harry, this begs another question. How is it when they only rush 3 and there are 8 in coverage that they don't seem to be able to cover well with 8 guys back either?

I’m quite certain I’ll again be severely abused but I’m going to offer this one more time. First I‘m certain Kingsbury will be the coach next year. Second I know the Cards’ history and I can count the wins (some very fortunate) just like everyone else. All that aside I believe this is a badly coached team that had the talent to win even more games than they did. So I would change the staff completely. I’d keep Keim but on a short leash and bring in a talent evaluator for the draft.
I agree. Maybe keep the ST coach and Kugler. I don’t think Kugler can be responsible for an OL being expected to provide a 20 yard pocket because Kyler takes a 15 yard drop. Kyler needs a coach that will get in his face a little. Not like Parcells, but kind of like BA. This whole coddling thing is clearly not working. That goes for the whole team. If the coach doesn’t show he’s pissed at the performance on the field, then the players think he’s ok with it. Just like with kids, if they don’t think there are consequences, then why would they be afraid to repeat the mistake?

Kliff deserves another year. I think it will end up as a disaster but you cannot deny the improvement over three years.
Yes but have you looked at next year's schedule? It's like murderers row. I posted a thread showing it. I'll take an absolute miracle to have a winning record which ain't gonna happen. The year he deserves will soon fizzle into a losing record & the heat will do him in. I'd love to be wrong trust me but I really don't think I am.

This was also said prior to this season’s schedule. Truth be told, we don’t know how teams will look next season. It’s almost pointless to discuss.

You're right but at this moment the team's on there & considering how the Cardinals wilt in big games...................? Doesn't give me much hope.

This would be Keim’s 4th HC in 10 years. Kliff being a bad coach was obvious to anyone who paid attention; yet, Keim chose to take Kroger-brand McVay anyway. If Kliff goes, so does Keim.

Here’s where I get confused.
How much blame does a coach get when:
An o-lineman moves before the snap?
A Wr drops a ball right in his hands?
A Wr runs a wrong route?
A LB fills the wrong gap?
A CB blows his coverage?
A punter drops the ball on his own 5 yard line?
A QB simply throws to the wrong receiver.

All these things should and are addressed in practice. It doesn’t mean it won’t happen again in a game. You simply can’t bench every player that makes a mistake.

One other thing. For the sake of simply an example if we played this season backwards right now we’d be sitting on top of the world. But you can bet you sweet butt if we had started out the season 2-6 most would have wanted Kingsbury fired there and then. However winning our last 7 in a row and we’d all want to sign him to a 10 year extension.

We are 11-6. Going to the playoffs for the first time in 6-7 years. Let’s just wait and see how this next game goes ( and pray there’s more) before we fire, dismiss, or replace anybody.

We don’t know what teams on there will be looked at as “big games” lol
Lol. How bout big name teams? I dunno, just think that schedule on paper looks brutal compared to what we played this year. Lots of things can change with teams as you said by the start of the season.
