Cardinals seem fine with their wide receivers
Cardinals fans, it may be time to get used to the idea of hearing the names Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Roberts, Early Doucet, Chansi Stuckey, Stephen Williams and DeMarco Sampson, as they are likely to be the receivers catching passes from Cardinals quarterbacks this year.
While many have been hoping to see the Cardinals acquire a veteran wideout to pair with Fitzgerald, Ken Whisenhunt has maintained his confidence in his young-but-unproven group.
“Everybody wants to beat on the drum about a second receiver,” the head coach said, “but I think we’ve got some receivers that we’d like to see what they can do.”
Of course, Whiz can’t see what players can do if they’re not on the field, and adding another wideout to the mix would decrease the amount of snaps available to any of the youngsters.
That certainly won’t appease the crowd that wanted a player like Braylon Edwards, Malcom Floyd or Lee Evans, but it really comes down to how much you trust the head coach’s judgment.
