Ken Whisenhunt: “You’re damn right I’m angry”

With the Arizona Cardinals at 1-4 and coming off a bad loss to the previously winless Vikings, coach Ken Whisenhunt is in a foul mood.

“Am I angry?” he said Tuesday. “You’re damn right I’m angry. Am I upset? Yes, because I know what kind of team we can be, and I’m very frustrated for our fans that we haven’t done that yet.”

Still, Whisenhunt says that he’s not going to channel his anger into screaming at his team.

“It doesn’t do me any good to rant and to rave, because those guys know I’m upset,” Whisenhunt said. “You have to be consistent with these guys, because that’s what they’re looking for. They don’t want somebody who is up or that’s down, because whether you’re winning four games in a row or losing four games in a row, it can turn the next game.”

Ranting and raving might not be the answer, but Whisenhunt needs to do something quickly to shake up his team. After the bye this week the Cardinals get the Steelers and the Ravens, so the schedule doesn’t get any easier. This season has the potential to get away from the Cardinals by the end of the month, and you’re damn right the fans will be angry at Whisenhunt if that happens.
