Believe it or not, the Arizona Cardinals' fourth quarterback choice of the year didn't lead the team to a miraculous victory in the season finale on Sunday, and the firing of the bozos making the decisions started on Monday.
Brian Hoyer was the quarterback selected to seal the deal on a 5-11 Cardinals season, as they lost 27-13 to the San Francisco 49ers. Coach Ken Whisenhunt and general manager Rod Graves were sent packing on Monday.
After starting the season 4-0, the Cardinals lost nine games in a row, using three different quarterbacks along the way, before winning one game, and losing the last two games -- while introducing yet another quarterback -- for good measure.
The team was so bad it's almost indescribable. That's why we're putting up the best description to a vote: what's the best word to describe the 2012 Arizona Cardinals season?
