Colt McCoy was given a gameplan that suited him (with a couple of major crap calls) and he executed it. Also, it helped he was playing a Seahawks team that is god awful. BUT, that's what a good backup does, takes what he's given and executes it well.

If he started next game it may be crappy McCoy again. Because Kliff would probably say "Wow! He's better than I thought" and go back to cutesy calls. KM has to start next game no matter what. McCoy did his job but it's pine time again for him. Mop up duty the rest of the way.
There is no need to put any emphasis on a few crap calls... good god look at McCoy's performance lol

No emphasis just a paranthetical observation, one was almost a safety. Just stating facts. McCoy was stellar for the most part. KK went total KK a few times. It ended up a great win.

A few bad play calls is a given regardless how good of a playcaller you are. Sometimes the defense just makes the right call or the defenders on the field just make a great play as well.

Colt McCoy has impressed me with his ability to direct the team. He is cerebral back there. Also he surprised me with some of his runs.

He has guided the Cardinals to two wins as a backup quarterback. I will take it.
Yep, on the road with wins against divisional teams.

Kliff Kingsbury has done well enough to coach the Cardinals to a 9-2 record.

I thought McCoy played well....in Kingsburys offense, running Kingsburys plays. This anti-Kingsbury narrative looks more ridiculous every week.

Looking forward to a new GM who isn't a drunk, a new HC/play-caller who wasn't a loser in College, and a D-C who has really simple concepts. And while I'm at it, the money-grubbing Bidwill's should sell the team. ;)

Good grief. I am NOT "anti-Kingsbury". In fact, I think it was on the game thread, I stated that he is without a doubt Coach of the Year so far this season.

How do you explain the timeout to wipeout a TD? That’s just a coach outthinking himself.

Kliff called a great game, second tune in three weeks, but that doesn’t change his klifffarts that still pop up from time to time.

First of all that isn’t playcalling and secondly every coach makes a boneheaded decision pretty much every game. Whether that be a play call that gets blown up or calling a bad timeout.

My point in the end is that there isn’t much point in criticizing and hanging onto a couple bad things when everyone has a couple bad calls or decisions throughout a game.

So, do you want Kliff coaching the Cardinals next year or not...
