Seeing how Whisenhunt soured his relationship with Big Ben, Boldin, Edge, Leinart and now Beanie Wells, I really think he's playing a game of favorites with his players and it looks to be costing the team.
Driving home at like 12am I was listening to an LA sports radio show called JT and Vic the Brick and they were talking about Coaches who believe in their coaching ability more than the players (ie. Belicheck vs. Moss) saying how Whisenhunt believes he was directly responsible for their recent success and thinks he could have plug and played any players into his system and got similar results.
I hope this doesn't end up kicking themselves in the ass.
Considering how GOD AWFUL Derek Anderson has been can we really believe Whisenhunt saw enough good about him to be like "that is our guy for the season"
For Whisenhunt to bring in DEREK ANDERSON as if he were the 'answer' at QB, well, I for one question the man's player evaluation skills, especially at QB.
Basically he lucked up into Kurt Warner, and has been down on Leinart forever.
Leinart was given a fraction of the amount of games to prove himself that most top picks are given, and I still don't believe USC made Leinart 'look' good.
IMO Leinart was a beast in college who made several mediocre WRs look like major pro prospects.
Granted his arm is pedestrian, but it's still adequate by NFL standards.
I think Whisenhunt didn't like Leinart from the moment he was hired to be the Cards HC, and now after reclamation project Anderson pooped himself, he's starting a rookie.
