For three straight weeks, the Cardinals came up with creative ways to torture their fanbase, losing in different ways late in the fourth quarter.
Arizona put their fans out of their misery early Sunday against Minnesota. It has a lot of people in Arizona remembering the pre-Whisenhunt days for the franchise.
Starting quarterback Kevin Kolb suggested that the team’s professionalism could improve.
“That’s the problem. It’s not one person making a lot of mistakes; it’s all of us making one or two mistakes,” Kolb said via the Arizona Republic. “That’s where details come in. The head coach hit the nail on the head: We’ve got to get back to detail-oriented football.
“It starts with meetings. It starts with showing up to work on time, getting in early, getting your work done. All of the stuff that a professional is supposed to do.”
While he didn’t outright say it, Kolb is suggesting that his Cardinals teammates lack discipline in their preparation.
The calls for Whisenhunt’s head in Arizona seem silly, but the Cardinals coach has a mounting challenge in turning this season around. They can’t blame everything on Derek Anderson, John Skelton, and Max Hall this year.
