The Arizona Cardinals' 2012 season has been a disappointment after a promising 4-0 start, with a nine-game losing streak and four different quarterbacks. Because of the struggles that Arizona has had, the security of head coach Ken Whisenhunt's job has been a major topic of conversation.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen spoke about the situation on ESPN Radio's The Herd recently.

"There's going to be changes in Arizona," Mortensen said. "By the way, there's going to be a lot of general manager changes," he added about a number of teams including the Cardinals.

Mortensen pointed specifically to the offensive struggles and inability to find a reliable quarterback as reasons that Whisenhunt's six-year tenure in Arizona could be in danger of ending.

"Because of the quarterback situation and just how they have botched it and I know [Whisenhunt] well, I have great respect for him and I believe he will be a head coach again if he's fired," Mortensen explained. "But the quarterback thing is really on both of them and you know that the owners, the Bidwill family, are very frustrated."

Whisenhunt and the Cardinals wrap up the 2012 regular season on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. Kickoff at Candlestick Park is scheduled for 2:25 p.m. MT.
