You get the sense from Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt that he can’t quite believe how awful this season has gone.
Arizona has three wins, but they’ve arguably been the worst team in the NFL. It’s a season that could shake all the belief Whisenhunt and G.M. Rod Graves have built up over the last few years. In some ways, Whisenhunt is no different than a fan. He’s tried everything to change his luck. Including superstitions.
“I’m grasping at straws
trying to find something that works,” Whisenhunt said this week via Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic
. “The people that know me know how superstitious I am and they know my routines. For me to change it up is a real departure.”
Whisenhunt has always been superstitious. He has so many apparently it would take him “forever to go through them.” He looks for anything that could turn the team’s mojo around.
“For instance, when you got a drink sitting on the edge of the table and you accidentally hit it and you catch it before it spills, you go, ‘All right, this is going to be a good week,” Whisenhunt said.
We’d look at things a different way. If the Cardinals’ fortunes don’t turn around, they will be in position to get Andrew Luck in the draft.
