Whisenhunt's Mess: Max Hall In As Derek Anderson Yanked In First Half

New, 1 comment

Remember when Ken Whisenhunt put all his eggs in the Derek Anderson basket and then showed Matt Leinart the door in favor of undrafted rookie Max Hall?


How's that turning out so far?


Whisenhunt was so indecisive about Leinart that he was willing to wait until halfway through training camp to make his move. He set Anderson up for failure (not a hard task) by not giving him the job immediately and, more importantly, left his team in a lurch by not replacing Leinart with an even better option (like Bulger) in the offseason.


Every step of the way this has been mishandled and yet Whisenhunt will escape the hot seat thanks in large part to how poorly the defense has played.
