Best Option for Cardinals is to Start Over, Starting With Head Coach

All the way up until about three games ago, I was a solid supporter of Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt.  Even after a 4-0 start was erased with losses to St. Louis, Buffalo, Minnesota, and even San Francisco, at 4-4 I thought the Cards just hit a bad patch.  With some poor play calling against Green Bay, Atlanta, and St. Louis and the way the personnel has been handled during in-game situations, it is time for Whiz to find a new home.

I like Whiz but enough is enough.  How long can you ride a team that has had two seven game and one six game losing streak over the past three seasons?  If you answered too long, you’re on track.  At the very least, I’d agree with you.

I just can’t take it anymore and from comments I followed during the game on Sunday in the 3-17 loss to the Rams, it appears many feel the same way.  It just isn’t working anymore.  He’s completely screwed up the quarterback situation.  It’s not completely his fault, however at this point someone needs to be held accountable.  That usually falls on the head coach.

Whiz is the one who decided the Ryan Lindley experiment started week 11 while they were still in the playoff chase and leading a game 13-0 on the road in Atlanta.  That might have been the worst call he’s made all season in a season full of questionable calls.

So now the best option is for the Cards to start over and the rebuilding begins at head coach.  There is no way Whiz can survive this, none.  It’s just a matter of time.  I will say this, please just let him finish the season, which looks to be a 4-12 season.  He won’t be around long after December 30th.
