Spencer: ‘The guys have an amazing ability to rebound’

Oct 7, 2011, 1:35 AM | Updated: 7:38 pm

Despite going 1-3 so far this season, the Arizona
Cardinals were in good spirits before heading to Minnesota
for their Sunday match-up with the Vikings, Cardinals
special teams coach Kevin Spencer said.

“The guys have an amazing ability to rebound,” Spencer
said. “If people could only have an inside look at the
preparation and the guys’ work, I mean, they still make
mistakes, you still have to bark at them, but they have
this resiliency and work ethic that really buoys my
spirits, and certainly the other coaches, with the way the
guys handle themselves.”

While Spencer said the guys are more than aware of what
the filmed showed and the tough challenge they have to
play a Vikings team that apparently has fallen on hard
times, he also said that the Cards have prepared and
worked well this week.

When the Cards take the field on Sunday, it will be time
to put their joking ways aside and focus on getting
another notch in the W column, but hearing they are in
good spirits after a bad loss against the Giants is
encouraging to hear.

Hopefully some of that good attitude and strong bonds are
on the plane for Minnesota and will bear a positive result
in Week 5.
