TAMPA, FL – "Gotcha!" said Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt Tuesday during the Super Bowl’s Media Day. "I can’t believe you guys fell for it," he continued, "The Cardinals in the Super Bowl, psssh, c’mon." The Arizona coach elaborated further, explaining that the Cardinals 3 playoff wins have all been an intricately orchestrated hoax. "It all started when Mike (Smith, Falcons head coach) and I were having a drink. We were laughing about how funny it would be if we actually stayed close. Then it was actually him who said something like ‘Imagine how hilarious it would be if you actually won!’ Well from there it kind of just snowballed. We got on the phone with John (Fox) and Andy (Reid) and ran it by them. I could barely hear them say yes because they were laughing so hard. At that point I knew we had something going." After these revelations the three opposing coaches, and supposed accomplices, joined Whisenhunt on stage. "I couldn’t have done it without these guys," said a grinning Whisenhunt, "Of course, some of you went a little over-the-top." Whisenhunt joked while staring directly at John Fox, who replied with a shrug and a sheepish grin. When asked by a reporter if he seriously expected football fans everywhere to believe that they had made the playoffs into an elaborate joke, Whisenhunt answered, "You find it easier to believe the Cardinals are legitimately the NFC Champions?" No one responded.
