Meetings: Whiz gets painful reminder

DANA POINT, Calif. - Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt isn't over the pain of losing to the Steelers in Super Bowl XLIII, but, until this week, he thought the anguish was beginning to subside.

Then came NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's address on Monday at the league meetings, which included a video clip of the end of the game.

"I was just starting to get over it and that kind of ripped it open," Whisenhunt said. "It was hard."

Whisenhunt still hasn't watched a recording of the game, even though nearly two months have passed. He will view it some day, he said, but probably not soon. His more immediate concern is having his players apply the lessons learned in 2008 to the 2009 season.

"From a standpoint of how we prepared, how we played smart, how we made plays no matter what happened, how we recovered from an interception right before halftime (of the Super Bowl), those are all things we can't say, 'Well, we're just going to pick up where we left off there,' " he said.

"That was something that we built the whole season to get to. Now, how are we going to sustain that? That's what the good teams do. And that's the next step for us."

They will probably sustain it with a 7-9 season.

He must be upset most at the fact that his team let the Steelers drive right down the field to score the game-winning TD with 35 seconds to go. Such a glorious thing. :chuckle:

agreed, i still think they are extremely overrated and were lucky to even be in the superbowl. the nfc was just weak, especially most teams playoff performances

maybe as a team they were a bit over-rated...

but there offense was def not over-rated.. there offense is one of the best in the league.. and could be better if they get a running game

I wonder of McFadden will walk around the locker room during training camp wearing his Super Bowl ring and then still not even win a starting job.

Fixed for accuracy.

That would be so funny he could let Whisenhunt try it on.:rofl:
