Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles proved today he deserves to be a head coach

Today Todd Bowles proved to me that he deserves to be coaching an NFL team, not just a candidate for a job because of his skin color. Yes, I went there!  I am sick of this guy not getting his shot, when he comes out and prepares his team to shut teams offenses down week in and week out.

With the Cardinals’ season on the line, Bowles drew up a defensive scheme that held the Seattle Seahawks to their worst offensive performance at home this season. The Seahawks managed 192 yards, 10 first downs and converted only 2 of 13 third downs. Quarterback Russell Wilson was sacked four times, throwing for a career-low 108 yards, and running back Marshawn Lynch was limited to 11 yards in the second half.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has an offensive background, but one of the best things he did in his first season is hire Bowles and maintain the Cardinals’ defensive advantage. The Cardinals did the unthinkable Sunday: They went to Seattle and out-hit the Seahawks. That’s why they’re still in the NFC playoff mix as we approach Week 17.
