Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury as their head coach Gary Jennings Jr. Jersey , a move aimed at providing guidance for young quarterback Josh Rosen and resuscitating the worst offense in the NFL.The Cardinals announced the hiring Tuesday after a long interview earlier in the day, saying Kingsbury had agreed to terms on a four-year contract with a team option for a fifth. He was to be introduced at a news conference at the team’s training facility in Tempe on Wednesday.Kingsbury was fired after going 35-40 in six seasons at Texas Tech, but his teams were known for their high-scoring performances. His prized pupil in those days was current Kansas City Chiefs All-Pro quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Tuesday’s hiring came barely a month after Kingsbury was hired as offensive coordinator at USC.Kingsbury, also a former offensive coordinator at Texas A&M where he worked with Johnny Manziel, replaces Steve Wilks, who was fired after going an NFL-worst 3-13 in his one season in Arizona.That means Kingsbury will take over a team with the No. 1 overall draft pick, along with a bevy of other picks and lots of salary cap space.After a one-year experiment with a defense-oriented coach in Wilks, Cardinals president Michael Bidwill acknowledged he got that hire wrong and vowed to get this one right. The Cardinals hope the hire can match the magic that happened when Sean McVay was hired by the Los Angeles Rams.Arizona’s move is back to an offense-centered coach, a philosophy that worked well in the previous hire of Bruce Arians, who won 50 games in five seasons before retiring after the 2017 season. That retirement turned out to be short-lived: Arians was hired later Tuesday as coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.Bidwill’s latest choice is a risk http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/authentic-phil-haynes-jersey , given that the 39-year-old Kingsbury has no NFL coaching experience and no record of success in terms of wins and losses at the college level.He does, however, bring unquestioned knowledge of successful offenses and in working with young quarterbacks. Under Kingsbury’s tutelage, both Case Keenum and Mahomes led the nation in passing as college quarterbacks.“Yeah, I think he can be a great NFL coach,” Mahomes said Tuesday before the hiring was announced. “He has the work ethic. He has the passion for the game. I know that he loves the sport. So I know he’ll be able to relate to quarterbacks. He would put in the work and now it’s just about him finding where he needs to be at.”Kingsbury was let go after six seasons at Texas Tech and joined the USC staff as offensive coordinator on Dec. 5. His quick departure will leave the Trojans scrambling for a replacement.Kingsbury’s challenge now will be to build a staff. He particularly needs a strong coordinator for a defense that had its share of troubles last year trying to switch from a 3-4 to 4-3 scheme.The new coach inherits a team that finished last in the NFL in all major offensive categories last year. Rosen, who as a rookie took over as starter four games into the season, had an up-and-down year with no significant improvement.Playing behind a makeshift offensive line decimated by injuries, he wound up last among quarterbacks who played regularly, completing 55 percent of his passes for 2 Ugo Amadi Jersey ,278 yards and 11 touchdowns with 14 intercepts and a 66.7 QB rating.Rosen, who was picked 10th overall in last year’s draft, is probably the No. 1 reason Kingsbury got the job.The Cardinals’ record last year was their worst in 18 years and matched the worst since the franchise moved to the desert from St. Louis in 1988. "A Bridge Too Far" was a book and movie about Operation Market Garden during World War II. The title has become an idiom for overreaching; not knowing when to say when. For many NFL careers, it’s apt. So many greats don’t leave the game on top. There are exceptions, of course. Jim Brown usually tops the list, leaving after winning his eighth rushing title. Barry Sanders retired with 10 1,000-yard seasons over a 10-year career. Fran Tarkenton left after setting career highs for touchdown passes and yards. It should be noted that was the same year the league expanded to 16 games, but still, he led the league in those categories. Phil Simms came back from losing most of two seasons to injuries to throw for over 3,000 yards in his final season. But the money is great and many don’t see the subtle and not-so-subtle signs that it's time to go.When the money wasn’t great players weren’t so prone to hang on. Hall of Fame Ernie Never played only five seasons. Red Grange played eight. Let's not forget they played on both sides of the ball in their day. These days many lesser players go a decade or more.Of course Dwayne Haskins Jersey , in recent years players are wary of the long-term effects of head trauma and have left the game early. Calvin Johnson called it quits after nine seasons, Patrick Willis after eight years and Jake Locker after four. But most people hang on as long as someone will pay them. Perhaps it’s time to think about term limits on playing the game. Too many ignore the signs that came a year earlier and go out in a way that’s only memorable for the wrong reasons. Some were underwhelming, some found themselves in the neutral zone of infamous notoriety. Of course, unless you see it coming, you don’t know it’s time to go until you truly fail.For this list, we’re talking about people who came back to play one last season or part of a season. It’s not about the people who came back and were released in the preseason and could no longer make a team. In most cases, it's about those who could have gone out on top but failed to see the opportunity.Here’s 15 former players who might have done well have planned their final season to come one year earlier.
