Theres no sense belaboring this. Michael Bidwill should fire coach Ken Whisenhunt, and he should do it now. It will be an empty gesture.

It will be a reactionary gesture, too. But you have to send a message to your fans you know, the ones who have given you a sellout at every game since University of Phoenix Stadium opened.
