    The Arizona Cardinals hired Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt as coach after a 5-11 season that culminated with Dennis Green's firing.

    The 44-year-old Whisenhunt signed a four-year contract with a team option for a fifth, the Cardinals announced Sunday.


Not sure about this. How great was Pittsburg's offense this season? Did Norm Chow even get a look? I know he has no real head coach experience, but with his history with Lienert and the offensive weapons that the Cards DO have, wouldnt he have been option?

Just happy to see they wised up and didn't give the job to Sherman. He's a decent coach, but I'm still a tad bitter about the way he left our roster bare, which ultimately lead to him gettin fired anyways.

I think this also makes the Steelers job a lot easier if they really wanted to give it to Whis or Grimm.

Chow did get an interview ... guess Leinart didn't beg the Cardinals brass hard enough ...

I, for one, am glad Chow will be back in Nashville next year.

They put up tons of yards but it was screwed by tons of turnovers, and those aren't really on the offensive coordinator. Plus he presided over the offense of a 15-1 team, not an overwhelming offensive attack but it got an unprecedented amount out of a rookie quarterback, and a Super Bowl champion, where in the playoffs it was the offense and specifically the passing game that torched Cincy, Indinapolis, and Denver.

I'm surprised. I really wanted Whisenhunt as the Steelers coach. I like Russ Grimm, but he seems like something of an inferior clone of Cowher.

Profootballtalk.com reported that Arizona offered the job to Sherman, but balked after he asked for four million per season. Though the Bidwells are the cheapest owners alive, that's still pretty steep for a mediocre-at-best coach.

This paves the way for Grimm, unless the Steelers were turned off by the way that Grimm and Whisenhunt were allegedly tag-teaming them for contract offers (Grimm and Wiz have the same agent).

How fitting is it, by the way, that the new Arizona coach is nicknamed after urine.



I don't know what is more disquieting -- the fact that the rest of the statue is missing, or that it has four toes.
