The next time we see the Arizona Cardinals they will be in
Flagstaff for training camp.
The team held its final practice Thursday afternoon in
Tempe, putting a cap on a stretch that included a rookie-
OTAs and now the two-a-day-practice minicamp.
Head coach Ken Whisenhunt is sorry to see it all end.
“Depressed,” he said when asked how he feels now that it’s
over. “It’s been a good offseason, it just doesn’t seem
it was long enough.”
Whisenhunt admitted his feelings are a bit selfish, saying
players worked hard and got a lot done over the last few
But now the coach hopes his players will be productive
the final stretch of their offseason, being sure not to
regress from this point.
“We’ve made progress,” Whisenhunt said. “I don’t know how
progress we’ve made and we still have a ways to go, but
important thing now is…that we don’t take a step
So moving forward, the Cardinals do have some things to
out, most notably who will be the team’s starting QB Week
On that topic, the coach was a little coy, saying that the
competition between Kevin Kolb and John Skelton could not
really be judged while players were wearing
shorts in OTAs and minicamp.
“That’s something, after we have some games and we have
practices up in camp, hopefully somebody will take the
in that race.”
