    It seems curious a team would be willing to gamble on a coach who won 47% of his games at Texas Tech.

    Is it really all that much different then a team gambling on a guy who wasn't the first choice to be a team's offensive cordinator, had a regressing unit from the season before and never coached?

    @Gene Parmesan remember when we were talking about Kingsbury being an advisor or something for someone's offense?

    He's not going to have a choice this year but I don't see Josh Rosen being a Kingsbury guy. Maybe there's a history where he tried to recruit him. At any rate, this is nuts. Not nuts where I think the Cardinals are dumb for doing it - although there is great risk here it's a very boom/bust scenario. But crazy that a guy can get fired from a middling Big 12 school and end up in the NFL. Not even Kingsbury himself thought this was possible.

    Just weird. I get him as an OC or QB coach but being a HC requires a different skillset.

    It would've made sense if he was the OC for Steve Wilks, but the Cardinals must have had competition for him. They must've figured that if anyone was going to get him, might as well be them.


    They better kill it with their DC hire though

    Arizona isn't the ideal organization you would want to see a young HC break in with

    Not sold on him as HC hire for NFL team

    We shall see

    Everyone wants the next McVay.

    McVay at least spent time in the NFL before jumping to HC. I have a feeling this hire will be a bust.

    The Rams had talent, though.

    Like with every trend, McVay ball will eventually die out and be replaced by something else. McVay ball is basically Madden ball.

    This might make Rosen an attractive fantasy QB next season. He’s going to be throwing it 50 times a game.

    No it's not. How is it Madden ball? Because they put up points?

    McVay's gameplans are more old school than just about any 'innovative' offensive mind today. The Rams play more vertically than any team I can think of including the Chiefs.

    Madden, Fantasy, where do you think these young guys come from? Come on he looks way more like a Silicon Valley nerd than an athlete if you look at him.

    Lol you really don't watch football do you? McVay is an NFL lifer. Started coaching right after college where he played wide receiver. I guess he'd have more credibility if he was a fat ass like Rex Ryan in your eyes.
