The Arizona Cardinals' ugly 7-6 loss to the New York Jets Sunday did nothing to quell the talk that head coach Ken Whisenhunt is on the hot seat.

The Cardinals have lost eight consecutive games and every shred of momentum that was built during a 4-0 start is now a distant memory.

Mike Florio of circulated a report Monday that the Cardinals are having internal discussions about defensive coordinator Ray Horton.

Given that the team's defense has had little to do with the team's eight-game losing streak, the fair inference is that the Cards are considering firing coach Ken Whisenhunt and promoting Horton to interim head coach.

Horton interviewed for St. Louis' head coaching position last season before the Rams settled on Jeff Fisher, and is expected to be a candidate for openings around the league this offseason.

Under Horton's watch this season, the Cardinals defense ranks seventh in the league.
