Ken Whisenhunt won't reveal quarterback yet

I have a few Monday traditions each week: Getting up, making coffee, and dragging myself to the next room to start posting.  Wait, that’s every day.

But every Monday is when I get to tell you what Ken Whisenhunt says about the latest chapter in the Cardinals’ quarterback drama.

“We’ll
finish our evaluation with our team today; we haven’t watched the tape
yet with them,” Whisenhunt said Monday via Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. “Then we’ll move on to Minnesota
and start game-planning for them and that will obviously determine
which way we go with that.”

All things considered, we’ll stick with our prediction from last night that Derek Anderson gets the call.  Max Hall has been benched in two out of the three starts he’s made.

While this may seem like a pointless debate to some, the Cardinals remain only one game behind the first-place Seahawks in the NFC West.  Seattle lost 33-3 in Oakland Sunday.

    This amazes me. What does Max Hall need to do to get benched? Is he dating Whisenhunt’s daughter? I mean sure the kid may be nice, but come on is that the best you can put out there? He is good for 7 to 14 points a game, for their OPPONENT!
    I think they let their best QB go, he plays receiver for the Ravens

    All the sportswriters say “Skelton isn’t ready,” but none gives any specifics. Maybe he doesn’t have arm strength? No, that would be Max Hall. Throws too many interceptions? No, that would be Derek Anderson. Doesn’t know the play book yet? No, every week we hear how “the offense has been simplified” for the sake of rookie Hall.
    The “Beanie” treatment of Skelton is a Whisenhunt special. Talented rookies sit while less-talented players continue mediocre.
    I’d like to know the basis of the hold that Hall has over Whisenhunt? Maybe looking for a new fan base in Hall supporters? What?

    PLEASE start Hall! He’s your best qb, remember?
    -Sincerely, the rest of the NFC West.

    Hall was never close to being ready to play in the NFL. As inconsistent as Anderson has been, he shouldn’t have lost his job. I still think coach Whiz was right in cutting Matt Leinart, however to this day I don’t understand why the Cardinals didn’t go after a QB in the offseason. Thankfully for the Cards the NFC West is putrid.

    Isnt Jamacus (Dank) Russell available?

  9. winslow says: Nov 1, 2010 7:33 PM

    The NFC West is so spectacularly bad that Arizona can win it with a quarterback who is slightly below average. Unfortunately, they don’t have one.
    I’d sign Jeff Garcia, who is better than anyone currently on the roster. So is Dante Culpepper. For that matter, so is Joe Namath.

    Anderson and Hall? Don’t fret, Cards fans. It could be worse. It could be Anderson and Quinn!
