Whisenhunt's going to be surprised that the JP that he knew and the JP who now is playing for him is not the same player .... JP only cares about JP. I wish Porter a lot of luck and I think he has a couple more good years as a pass rusher in him.
Whisenhunt: Porter Brings Intensity & Passion

ESPN reports Arizona Cardinals HC Ken Whisenhunt, who was on the Pittsburgh Steelers' staff when LB Joey Porter was a star for them, doesn't view him as a troublemaker. And the three-year, $17.5 million deal shows the Cardinals still think Porter can play. "There's been a lot said and written about Joey -- the bulletin-board material he gives to other teams and all that stuff -- but in my experience with him, he believes in the team concept and knowing that being successful is about being unselfish
," Whisenhunt told NFL.com's Steve Wyche. "He brings an intensity and passion and will keep that level up throughout the game on defense." "I watched more than 400 snaps, and I still see his ability to make those plays," Whisenhunt said. "He also fills an area we needed to address."
