Will the Arizona Cardinals fire Mike McCoy as offensive coordinator and replace him with Byron Leftwich? That’s what many people are wondering.
Three different prominent NFL reporters suggested on Twitter Thursday that the Cardinals could fire McCoy and replace him with Leftwich, who is the team’s quarterbacks coach.
The Cardinals entered Thursday’s game against Denver as the 31st-ranked offense in points scored and 32nd-ranked team in offensive yards. They looked even worse than that, embarrassing themselves with dull playcalls that did not work to the team’s strengths and a lack of adjustments against a ferocious Broncos pass rush. They scored just 10 points while committing five turnovers.
After the game, Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks said that everyone will be evaluated, but talk of changes are “premature.”
McCoy was fired as the Broncos’ offensive coordinator last season and deserves to be fired by Arizona this season. He also has one of the most predictable rushing offenses in the league.
The Cardinals could use a change even if it’s just for the sake of change, because what they’ve been doing has been embarrassing.
