I have been an Arizona Cardinalsfan since 2003. I am not a native of Arizona, as some of you know that read my profile. I love the National Football League, historically, the Cardinals organization has been less than stellar to put it nicely. But the organization is under a new and improved regime now, no matter what takes place tomorrow at New Orleans, the Cardinal organization and fans can hold their heads high. The hire of Ken Whisenhunt has made all the difference in the world for this team, this town, and their beloved fans. I have never seen a NFL coach give praise and compliments to thier fans like coach Whisenhunt does before and after games. He continually shows the fans love and gratitude for supporting the Cardinals. Trust me, there is no NFL coach that does that. I believe that is important because of the lack of success the Cardinal franchise has had over the years.
Ken Whisenhunt has brought that Pittsburgh Steeler mentality to the desert, now 4-1 in post season play. He has installed discipline and a physical force in this version of the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals were not a bad football team prior to the Coach Whisenhunt era. Let me finish here before you jump to any conclusions. For those of you who did not jump on the bandwagon until last years super bowl run, the Cardinals played competitively, only to lose it in the 4th quarter, as in the infamous Monday night debacle against the Chicago Bearsat Cardinals Stadium when they blew a 23-3 lead in the second half, with most of the damage coming in the 4th quarter. The Cardinals just needed to learn how to finish. With all the talent they had, they just needed someone to guide them and show them how to finish a game in the win column. And Ken Whisenhunt and his staff have done that, Kevin Spencer, special teams coach, has played a big role in that also, with our special teams kick coverage being one of our weaker points. Ken is a calm coach, you can see it in his interviews, and a fair one too, despite what Q might think. Coach Whisenhunt has changed the entire NFL culture in Arizona, with Cardinal fans, NFL fans, and the sports media for the better.
