I didn’t see anything out of the ordinary from Patrick but there’s no way around the fact that his contract is an attention-getter. For the remaining 25 people still saying “same old Cardinals,” can we finally put that to bed?


I have been to four of the five practices. I have never been to a practice where someone left the field after Thomas. Scores of players leave the field before Thomas. At the very least, he puts in an extra 20 minutes throwing routes after every practice.


Practice ended at 4:20. Larry worked for an extra 10 minutes. He went over to the crowd and signed autographs for 20 minutes.


Much better practice. Everything was very crisp. He threw touchdown passes to Fitz, John Carlson and Ted Ginn, Jr. Good reads. Good throws. Competitors come back strong after a rough performance. Tuesday was very bad. Wednesday was very good.


Everything he does is just quicker than the past. His actions are more authoritative. He doesn’t seem to be thinking about what he’s supposed to be doing. He’s just doing.
