For the second consecutive season, Mike McCoy has been relieved of his duties as an offensive coordinator in the NFL. The most recent after a humiliating defeat at home to the Denver Broncos.
McCoy, who was the Broncos offensive coordinator last season, has produced one of the league’s worst offenses in Arizona. Through seven contests, the Cardinals have averaged only 220 yards per game which is dead last in the NFL. Additionally, not once have they totaled more than 300 yards in a game the entire season.
Quarterback Josh Rosen threw two pick sixes, Thursday night, in the opening fifteen minutes and the few Cardinals fans that were in attendance, headed for the exits. More telling play came down 21-3 where the Cardinals ran up the middle when the Broncos had 9 defenders near the line of scrimmage.

Former Jaguars quarterback, Byron Leftwich, will handle offensive coordinating responsibilities for the foreseeable future as he was promoted to the position after McCoy’s termination.
The Cardinals fall to 1-6 on the campaign but have a contest with the only team they’ve beaten in the 49ers on the horizon.
