Who would have thought that after five games into 2012, the Arizona Cardinals would be tied for the division lead. But here we are, the Cardinals are 4-1 and tied with the 49ers for first place in the NFC West.
While this season means a lot for 'Zona, it might mean the most for head coach Ken Whisenhunt.
After making two playoff appearances in his first three years with the Cardinals, Whisenhunt's last two seasons have been sub par, combing for a 13-19 record.
He was certainly in the hot seat coming into the season.
Now Arizona is back in the thick of things, and they look like a team that could stick around. A lot of that is due to Whisenhunt and what he's been able to get this team to do.
