Training Camp Update: Coach Whisenhunt Thursday Afternoon Presser

Cardinals Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt reiterated the fact that at times the offense looked good and at times the defense looked good during last night's practice, but was excited about the spirited session overall. He said that he really liked the goal line session at the end, but there is still work to be done. He hesitantly commented that he saw some good things from his quarterbacks last night, but it didn't sound overwhelmingly positive. Coach believed that he felt the protection for the quarterbacks was good, which allowed them to operate and do some things that they needed the quarterbacks to do, such as checks into certain runs or getting out of things, but that "The real test is going to be Sunday." He went on to say, "I see a little bit of progress, but don't mistake that for saying that we're there. It's unfortunate that we had a couple interceptions. Those are the things that we've got to get rid of." Coach emphasized that by no means are they all the way there yet, and finished by saying "We got a lot of work to do."

The Cardinals took the morning off, at least from practicing, but will still have their scheduled afternoon session. The team is scheduled to have one additional practice tomorrow morning in Flagstaff before leaving for their Sunday game in Canton, Ohio, where they will take on the New Orleans Saints.

As far as the starting lineup and number of plays or minutes each player will have, Coach Whiz has not even though about it yet. He said that he will probably review this with the coaches Saturday morning and inform the team Saturday night. Sunday will be a good gauge for the Cardinals to see how far along they are.
