Whisenhunt inherited Denny Green's talent. He rode Warner, Q, Edge and Todd Hayley to the Super Bowl.

He is the man that selected Levi Brown over Adrian Peterson. He selected those crappy O lineman, and he was the one that gave Russ Grimm free reign over it. He was told to fire Grimm and he refused.

He hand picked Kolb. He played musical chairs with the QBs never allowing any to find a rhythm. He refused to change a game plan to suit his talent, instead insisting the "system works."

Good riddance. Michael Bidwill now should be on the horn with Andy Reid.

I remember when I was on another forum (can I say that here) and the Cards were the laughingstock of the NFL. I liked what I saw in Whiz and was almost laughed out of the forum when I said that was the year the Cards came back. They did. But it was more or less a one shot deal.
Looking back, Warner probably had as much to do with it as Whiz. I never liked that quarterback carousel thing either in later years.
Now I am not a Cards fan, but it looked like Whiz was desperately trying to get that mojo back, but never did.

The last time the Cardinal franchise won an NFL championship was in 1947. IIRC they have the worst won-loss percentage in NFL history regarding old line times, and the Cardinals franchise goes back to the NFL's earlier beginnings. Having won their last several games in a row last season and getting off to a good start this season, well it looked like the Cards were going to be in western division mix, and then the roof literally caved in.

I wasnt talking about a championship. I was talking about a team that looked like it belonged in the NFL. Got to the playoffs if I remember correctly which was quite a feat for them at the time considering how they looked previously.
And if the Saints had not had the old man Warner in their bounty sights, they could have gone on further.
Which is no excuse.
Warner should have been protected.
