But he's considered to be a decent if not preferred choice by most fans. Record is only a small part of it.

Yes Arizona's personnel on offense sucked. But Whisenhunt is an offensive coach, he should have some say on the matter. Maybe he'd do all right, but I think given the other options the Bills would be better off picking a Lovie Smith, or a Ray Horton.
Exactly what I was about to say. I don't see a massive difference in the two (obviously other than one is an OC and one is a DC). Both have one playoff appearance in the last 6 years (one Superbowl). Whisenhunt did it without a great defense or a running game and Lovie Smith did it with a Rock solid Defense and Special Teams. Whisenhunt should be excused for what happened to Arizona this year.... bad QBs but also maybe the worst OL in the game.... Lovie Smith hasn't done anything this year that proves he is a better coach. His team relied on turnovers (and as Bills fans can recall from last year those have more to do with luck). Cutler throwing to Marshall every play (and Forte in the backfield?) Why wasn't this team in the playoffs? They're better than the Vikings.... they underachieved plain and simple.
