I was just reading an article on the Cards’ site about how after Murray’s leg injury he averaged only 6.5 yds per pass attempt. I don’t have the time to go play by play but I’m quite sure that a more normal number would have been obtained if the Cards had stopped throwing so many passes behind the line. Game after game this category of passes was continually attempted despite the results being near total failure. Feel free to add in that definition of insanity here. My chief criticism of Kingsbury has been he responds too slowly to things that obviously are failing. This year there will no longer be an excuse of the absence of quality downfield targets. I’m not opposed to throwing a few behind the line passes to start the season, but if the failure continues, throw the ball downfield. I'm certain there are people thinking the marginal O-line contributed to this problem. It too has been improved but I’m more focused on play selection. Can Kingsbury alter his in-game play calling based on what’s working or will he continue to call the plays he wants to work? This has historically been one of the problems with head coaches who call plays. They often lack flexibility. There are, of course, other play selection issues involving a Jekyll & Hyde approach to aggressiveness especially on 3rd & 4th down. Games are typically won in the NFL by identifying an opponents’ weaknesses and continually exploiting them. You’ve seen teams id a weak CB and just continue to attack him. Can you recall seeing the Cards do this? They seem to call plays based not on in-game events, but rather on what Kingsbury has planned. This would seem to be a make it or break it year for Kingsbury. He seems more invested in Murray than Murray is invested in him. I don’t see Kingsbury returning if the Cards go 8-8 again. If Kingsbury can’t improve his play calling, even 8-8 may prove challenging.
