Derek Anderson’s biggest problem Monday night wasn’t his post-game outburst. It was his desultory play.
Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt’s biggest problem is that he has no better alternatives at quarterback to Anderson.
Whisenhunt will stay with Anderson as his team’s starter this week against the Rams because he gives the team the best chance to win. Rookie Max Hall may wind up starting again, but Whisenhunt doesn’t sound ready to make that move again. And rookie John Skelton won’t play this year barring injuries, Whisenhunt confirmed.
“Hey, listen — nobody likes this,” Whisenhunt said via the team’s website. “If people think we are content, that’s wrong. It hurts. It hurts to lose games like that, it hurts to hear our fans boo, especially with everything we have done to make some progress (the last few years).”
Arizona’s mismanagement of their quarterback situation torpedoed this season, but we honestly believe they would still be under .500 with Kurt Warner. They arguably own the worst defense in football.
