Arizona Cardinals' Kliff Kingsbury slammed in NFL hot seat rankings, coach fired odds

The Arizona Cardinals are 1-2 in the 2022 NFL season and Kliff Kingsbury is receiving a lot of blame for the team's less-than-stellar start.

The Cardinals coach currently leads several odds to be the first NFL coach fired, and some people are already speculating that he is on the hot seat in Arizona.

Others are questioning his play calling and ability to be an NFL coach.

Check out what people are saying about the Cardinals' coach, and his job security, after Arizona's rough start to the season.

NFL Week 4 picks, predictions:

Bleacher Report: Kliff Kingsbury among NFL coaches already on the hot seat

Alex Ballentine writes: "Kliff Kingsbury's teams have struggled to keep the momentum of hot starts throughout the season. That won't be an issue this year. Kingsbury's team is looking at a 1-2 start, and the "1" in that record didn't come easy. Kyler Murray had to run almost an entire football field just to get a two-point conversion and had to run another touchdown in as time expired to force overtime before a 59-yard fumble recovery won them the game. Meanwhile, the two losses have been convincing. The Cardinals' minus-25 point differential is worse than all but three teams in the league right now. Kingsbury is 25-26-1 as the head coach in Arizona. However, when taking last season's second-half swoon into account, he is just 3-7 in his last 10 games he has coached. Kingsbury went 35-40 as the head coach at Texas Tech. There were reasons you could spin that record positively, given the Red Raiders' resources compared to others in the Big 12, but at some point, you are what your record says you are."

Sports Illustrated: How warm is Kliff Kingsbury's seat with Cardinals?

Donnie Druin writes: "Arizona, just 1-2 to begin the season, has stumbled out of the gates and already are looking in the mirror to see what team they are as Week 4 approaches.  Realistically, the Cardinals are a 0-3 team. The probability of Arizona pulling off a similar comeback win against the Las Vegas Raiders is very slim.  Yet hypotheticals don't get the job done in the NFL, nor do they matter. Results do. Even then, Kingsbury and crew have failed to deliver through the first three weeks of the season, and Arizona's performance has many wondering how warm Kliff Kingsbury's seat is."

Yardbarker: Is Kliff Kingsbury the right fit with Arizona Cardinals?

Jacob Hardin writes: "After last week’s loss to the Rams, Kliff fell to a 25-26-1 record as an NFL head coach. This is the same coach that over the offseason received a 5-year extension that will run through 2027. Do you think Kliff Kingsbury will still be the Cardinals' HC by the end of the season?"
