Ken Whisenhunt: What Was He Thinking !?

From what have been able to pick up, reading and hearing - it seems like Ken Whisenhunt was never really high on Matt Leinart (to put it mildly) - and that of course affected Matt Leinarts status in the locker room.

If that is the case - the what was Ken Whisenhunt thinking in the off-season hiring D. Anderson to be the de facto starting QB.

I know that the Cardinals were in the hunt for Charlie Whitehurst - but that makes even less sense. Why was Ken Whisenhunt looking to hire backups and underperformers when he from the start knew he didn't like Matt Leinart !?!?!

To me it just doesn't make sense. Was Ken Whisenhunt told from upstairs that he had to try and make Matt Leinart work ??

I think this about one of the worst examples og mismanagement, as this could make the Cardinals transition phase even longer. Because - please don't tell me that Ken Whisenhunt thinks that D. Anderson is the answer at QB.

Actually I really like Ken Whisenhunt and I think the other moves in the organisation has been really good and justifiable, especially looking at the long term. That is why I simply can't understand what Ken Whisenhunt was thinking leading the Cardinals into this miserable QB situation.
