    I thought he had assistance with TC? He was supposed to mesh the air raid with NFL concepts, this play in the air raid could work in the NFL if you do this this & this etc etc. Look how that turned out lol. I hope KK reinvents his playbook in the offseason?

    Another stud WR will help. That and a consistent Kirk but I really don't see anything changing with Kirk anytime soon. This should've been his breakout year but it didn't happen.

    Kirk isn't the problem. He really isn't. There are a number of things holding him back. The scheme is trash. His route tree is limited to mostly go/post, curls at the sticks or passes in the flat for screens or off motion. Like Nuk he's kept predominantly in one position so they don't move him about to help match ups.

    Combine this with Kyler struggling to read defenses and missing several opportunities to Kirk where he should be the first read, or just missing he's open.

    I have no idea whether Kirk could produce much more or not because he's playing in handcuffs in this system.

    Only if we know how to use him properly. NUK had a good year but it could have been so much better.

    The missed opportunities are a product of KM not being put under center with a play fake, rollout & no DL to see over. That would allow him to see downfield better for sure. Coupled with the fact our interior OL sucks green donkey ass lol. Constant pressure in his face up the middle. He could see those opportunities downfield if he wasn't getting so much pressure.

    Christian Kirk ain’t it.

    I wanted to believe, but that drop against New England sealed the decision for me.

    Tough to make any sort of differing argument. He is worthy of a roster spot but I am not counting on him as a #2 WR option. He is a sub player until he shows to be something else.

    If the Cardinals add an OC, what would KK do? QB coach?

    He may not be trendy but I'd be please with Jim Caldwell. He's an underrated coach and has a tonne of experience to take some things off Kliffs hands on the game management side.
