Congratulations to the Seattle Seahawks’ social media team for absolutely burying Kliff Kingsbury and the Arizona Cardinals on Twitter after Sunday’s big divisional rivalry win.
We haven’t seen Ryan Gosling look this bad on a football field since Coach Boone benched him in Remember the Titans. It doesn’t matter that Kingsbury received a contract extension through 2027, there’s no way The Bidwills can like what they have seen out of him through six weeks. At least Pete Carroll can have a good laugh at his expense chilling from his palatial Seattle estate.
It would be such a shame if Kingsbury had to give up his Scottsdale bachelor pad this offseason…
Seattle Seahawks’ social media team trolls Kliff Kingsbury, Arizona Cardinals
This goes far beyond photoshopping Carroll into Kingsbury’s Scottsdale abode. At first glance, you can see Carroll sitting comfortably on his couch with the Seattle skyline in the background. Upon further inspection, you will see a rouge L in the sky above the mountains. This trolls Arizona even more, as this L is in the shape of The Bean in Chicago from a previous Cardinals Twitter post.
Oh, it gets even better. As you can see on Carroll’s monitor and laptop, it is Double XP Weekend, and you know what that means? This is a massive dig at Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray and his well-documented video game addiction. The guy plays so much Call of Duty that the Cardinals had to put in his contract extension to watch four hours of film a week uninterrupted. What a dig!
Ultimately, this game is significant for both NFC West rivals. It may have been a low-scoring affair up in the Pacific Northwest, but keep in mind what the realistic expectations were for these two teams entering the season. Arizona was seen as a virtual playoff lock in a weak NFC. Seattle was almost certainly rebuilding, probably a lock to be picking inside the top 10 in the 2023 NFL Draft.
For now, Carroll is getting quality quarterback play out of … Geno Smith, while “Mr. Unlimited” Russell Wilson is doing his part to ensure that the Denver Broncos will have the longest active playoff drought by the end of the season. Yes, the New York Jets have a real shot at ending theirs, while there are no corny catchphrases that can offset Nathaniel Hackett being in over his head.
As far as the Cardinals are concerned, you could argue that Kingsbury is sitting atop the hottest seat of all NFL head coaches. Not to say he is surely getting fired in-season as Matt Rhule did in Charlotte, but keep in mind these two things when it comes to the Cardinals head coach. His teams usually start out hot before fading down the stretch and he got fired by his alma mater…
It would not be shocking if Kingsbury is just chilling at home after this season if he gets whacked.
