Kliff Kingsbury flexes on everybody with his Cardinals draft war room

Kliff Kingsbury’s “war room” probably puts most others to shame.

During the 2020 NFL Draft, fans got live looks at the draft rooms for various coaches and team personnel throughout the league. The ESPN broadcast showed that of Bengals coach Zac Taylor, whose team had the first overall pick.

But the Cardinals’ team Twitter account showed off Kingsbury’s home war room, which appeared to be in his living room.

Kingsbury, 40, sat in his Paradise Valley home with a nice view of Camelback Mountain in the background. He was laid back, his feet on the coffee table as he was fixated on the television, relaxed as Arizona held the No. 8 selection.

Adding insult to injury to those who long for such magnificent digs, Kingsbury had his loafers up on his wood coffee table. Despite it being 95º in Phoenix on Thursday, the fire pit was on in the backyard. Three cell phones lay on the table in front of him.

Compare Kingsbury’s cool setup to that of the Bengals’ Taylor, whose carpet prompted 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station’s Dan Bickley to exclaim, “That carpeting’s bizarre, man,” during our live broadcast.

The Twitter reaction came pouring in:
