Starting off the season 4-0 is a good thing; finishing 1-11 will get you fired in the NFL.
Monday, the Arizona Cardinals wiped the slate clean in the front office, firing general manager Rod Graves and head coach Ken Whisenhunt according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com.
The downfall for the two came with the inability to develop a solid NFL quarterback.
Since the departure of Kurt Warner, the Cardinals have had a revolving door at the signal caller spot and it has ruined any chance of them becoming a playoff contender.
The Cardinals have a very good defense, but the offense needs a complete retooling with the exception of Larry Fitzgerald, their talented but neglected wide receiver.
The Cardinals will be in the market for an offensive mind that could put together a productive unit to complement the defense.

As seven NFL teams look for new coaches, several of 2012′s head coaches are expected to jump to new teams after being fired Monday.
Common sense says that would be Andy Reid, who went 130-93 in 14 seasons with the Eagles, or Lovie Smith, who was 81-63 in nine years with the Bears. Unless, of course, the team is the Bills. Then, apparently, it’s time to raid the cupboard of the...
