Whisenhunt not ready to announce Cardinals' starter

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Derek Anderson could be back at starting quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals after a second rough outing in a row for rookie Max Hall.

Speaking at his Monday news conference, Ken Whisenhunt declined to pick a starter for next Sunday's road game against the Minnesota Vikings, but his experiment with the undrafted Hall went from ugly to unbearable in Sunday's 38-35 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Hall was benched in the second quarter after having two interceptions returned for touchdowns. Anderson, who started the first four games, came on to help the Cardinals rally for a 35-31 fourth-quarter lead.

But his ill-advised first-down pass into traffic was intercepted with just over five minutes to go and Arizona in range for a game-tying field goal.
