Bill Davis on the hot seat?


Over at ESPN today Mike Sando covered the topic of who in the NFC West is on the hot seat.  Of course Matt Leinart made the top of the list.  That is pretty much a given and has been hashed out ad nauseum.  The other Cardinal on his list is Defensive Coordinator Bill Davis, who makes for a much more intriguing subject at this point, in my mind at least. 

Given the overhaul of the defense this off season and the fact that Davis is only entering his second year as coordinator it seems a bit of a reach that his job will be on the line this season. Sando pointed to the poor performance in the playoffs in '09 and the defense's inablility to stop Pittsburgh at the end of the superbowl in '08.  He did note that Davis was only the linebacker coach in '08.  He could as easily have pointed out other games such as the Titans in which the Cardinals defense laid down on the final drive.

How much does Davis have to prove this season?  Does anyone think he's at risk?  Is he Whisenhunt's man or just a stop gap for now?  The personel for the 3-4 now seems to be in place more so than ever before.  What will Davis unleash upon opposing offenses this season that was missing in past versions of the scheme?
