Cool Uncle Versus Cool Kliff
It’s Bruce Arians reunion week, and that will garner attention. Makes sense. Arians was the winningest coach the franchise has had, and he was a memorable personality to boot – the self-described “Cool Uncle” who left his imprint in Arizona. But he retired, the Cardinals moved on after him, and now – after the Steve Wilks pause – there is Kliff Kingsbury, who walked in with his own reputation of cool and that has held up as well. Of course, cool doesn’t matter on game day. The offensive wisdom each man holds is what counts. Arians is trying to rehab QB Jameis Winston, and we’ve gotten to that point in the season where the Bucs’ offense should be right about on track in assimilating B.A.’s plans. Kingsbury, meanwhile, continues to move the Cardinals in the right direction on that side of the ball. This game, given defensive struggles for both teams, could end up as a shootout – which would be apropos for a Arians-Kingsbury matchup.
