LaCanfora also notes that their firings bring the Black Monday total up to 7 head coaches and 5 general managers.

Whisenhunt went 45-51 in 6 seasons with the Cardinals.

As we've discussed for a few other guys who were fired today, the real problem in Arizona has been the lack of a quality QB.

When Whisenhunt had Kurt Warner, he led the Cardinals to a Super Bowl, which they almost won against the Steelers.

After Warner's retirement, the Cardinals have gone 18-30 in 3 seasons, and 8 different players have played QB for the Cardinals at one point or another.

The complete lack of a quality QB is a large portion of the reason for Graves' departure. He absolutely whiffed on Kevin Kolb, and a GM who can't find a franchise QB is forever doomed.
