Last night when watching MNF and the San Diego Charger's offense completely disintegrate in the 2nd half, was strong reminder of how and why the Arizona Cardinal Football Club finally let Ken Whisenhut go.
Phillip Rivers has had his share of disappointments in the NFL. First he was drafted by the NY Giants, which gave him an opportunity to play for a great organization and learn under a strong QB head coach Tom Coughlin, only to find out a trade had been made sending him to the San Diego Chargers to back up Drew Brees! What a bad break!!!
Now lets move to current day and an offensive coordinator who could not pick a decent NFL QB, yet was lucky enough to have one on his roster Kurt Warner (who was brought in by Dennis Green - the previous Cardinal coach) to get his team to the Super Bowl.
Lets just imagine this list of Whisenhut's acquisitions ... Max Hall, Derek Anderson, Rich Bartel, Brian St. Pierre, John Skelton, Kevin Kolb, Ryan Lindley and of course Brian Hoyer.... can you see anyone on it who could be considered a starter, let alone a backup you could depend upon in this league today?
Now the Chargers are stuck with the "genius" of Ken Whisenhut! I wonder how long before Mike McCoys realizes the mistake he made by having him call plays for the Chargers....
