TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt says criticism of quarterback Kevin Kolb and all the rest of the team is justified.

The embattled coach says with the Cardinals 1-5 and on a five-game losing streak, fans have a right to be upset with a season that began with much higher expectations.

Kolb, meanwhile, acknowledges that he's had a tougher time than anticipated learning the nuances of an offense that is far different than the one he learned with the Philadelphia Eagles.

The challenge only grows for Kolb and the rest of the Arizona offense on Sunday when the Cardinals travel to Baltimore to face what's bound to be an angry Ravens team coming off an upset Monday night loss at home to Jacksonville.
