Would Ken Whisenhunt Be a Good Fit For Philadelphia Eagles?

It’s been a long search for the Philadelphia Eagles as they look for a new head coach for 2013 after parting ways with Andy Reid following a disappointing 4-12 season. Numerous candidates have met with the team for the position and on Monday, the Eagles interviewed former Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt.

The head coach is looking for work this offseason as well after the Cardinals decided to part ways with Whisenhunt following a 5-11 season–which is even more disappointing after they started the year off with a 4-0 record. There was a time when Whisenhunt seemed like one of the top coaches in the league after leading Arizona to a Super Bowl appearance in 2009, but the Cardinals have only won 18 games over the last three seasons since then.

With all of the injuries surrounding the quarterback position this season, it’s difficult to put the blame on Whisenhunt for what went on in Arizona last season and he certainly would have potential considering all of the talent in Philadelphia surrounding both sides of the ball. However, the quarterback position could be a problem for Whisenhunt once again depending on what the team decides to do during the offseason.

Not only is Michael Vick’s future uncertain in the City of Brotherly Love, but it’s still too early to determine whether or not Nick Foles has what it takes to handle the starting job for the Eagles during the 2013 season after the rookie started six games in 2012–winning just one game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 14.
