With the Arizona Cardinals heading into 2021 with a slew of new veterans the expectations are not just making the playoffs, but being able to compete in those playoffs.

One of the biggest question marks is their head coach.

According to CBS Sports it is a concern for the Cardinals, as they ranked all the head coaches in the NFL and Kingsbury came in near the bottom.

22. Kliff Kingsbury (Cardinals)

Season: 3rd with Cardinals and as HC

Career record: 13-18-1 (.422)

Playoff record: N/A

Speaking of innovators, Kingsbury was supposed to bring fireworks to Arizona alongside Kyler Murray. That’s happened on occasion, but mostly because he’s just let Murray take off and chuck it up when and where he wants. The arrow is at least mildly pointing up thanks to 2020 improvement, but Kingsbury almost has to get his explosive playmakers to the postseason to justify a longer leash.

I think most people would agree with this, it is playoffs or new head coach barring a litany of injuries.

What do you think?
