According to the Arizona Republic, former Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt and defensive lineman Darnell Dockett weren’t very fond of one another.
Whisenhunt wasn’t crazy about Dockett’s immaturity at times.
the messages from Ken Whisenhunt weren’t always so well-intended or received. And by the end of the 2012 season, Dockett was in a much darker place.
He had defied the coaching staff on the field in New York, refusing to let the Jets score a touchdown as ordered, engaging in some form of confrontation with teammate Kerry Rhodes.
And while his Twitter courtship of another man’s girlfriend was humorous to some — he offered to take a beauty queen for chicken wings and a night at the strip club — it symbolized the perceived immaturity that drove Whisenhunt crazy.
Dockett was ready to ask for a trade if Whisenhunt didn’t get fired.
In the locker room after the final game of the season, Dockett knew his future came down to Michael Bidwill’s decision. If Whisenhunt returned, he was ...

Defensive lineman Darnell Dockett is in a good mood these days, he’s tweeting at beauty queens, and playing the dozens with Crimson Tide quarterback AJ McCarron.

Larry Fitzgerald is quarterback proof, they said.
Check out his 2011 numbers with John Skelton at quarterback, they said.
If you were one of the “lucky” fake football GMs to have selected Fitzgerald with an early round draft pick or, perhaps, traded for the artist formerly known as “Sticky Hands” in your dynasty league, then you were probably watching your make believe...

If you scour the Internet, you will find no end to mock drafts and pundits already assuring you of whom your favorite team will choose in April. The point of this series is not to flaunt the psychic powers of TSHQ, it is to provide...
Arizona Cardinals running back Beanie Wells admittingly says it was a difficult season, citing a frequent bumping of heads with then head coach Ken Whisenhunt. "We definitely had our fair share of disagreements this season, and I've never been in a situation like that before," Wells said, via Fox Sport Arizona.
And I want a unicorn, and a light saber, and platinum season passes to Cedar Point and free corndogs for the rest of my life. Also, get us a Patrick Peterson along with a Calais Campbell, a Darnell Dockett, and a Dan Williams to keep our linebackers Pro Bowl fresh.
