Whisenhunt mulling staff changes in Arizona
To borrow from David Bowie, there are ch-ch-ch-ch-changes coming to the staff of the Arizona Cardinals.
Ken Whisenhunt just don’t know exactly how things will take shape yet.
"I know there will be changes," Whisenhunt said, according to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. "I don't know what that is going to encompass, but we're going to make sure that we work to not have another season like this."
Speculation centers around defensive coordinator Bill Davis. The Cardinals allowed more points than any other team in the league, and ranked 29th in yardage. Davis has been on the job for two seasons and signs were pointing to trouble when the Cardinals allowed an NFL record 90 points in two playoff games last season.
Of course, the Cardinals didn’t keep veteran talent when safety Antrel Rolle and linebacker Karlos Dansby were allowed to leave in free agency, but the signs of a collapse were there last season when those players were still on board.
The labor dispute and the typically frugal ownership in Arizona may complicate matter for Whisenhunt. Stay tuned.
