After the mini-drama of Beanie this afternoon, a fun little anecdote. Seems wide receiver Steve Breaston was talking about going against Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie this morning, and for the most part, Breaston was praising DRC. Then the question came about getting frustrated going against someone like DRC. Now, Breaston is as mild-mannered and relatively ego-less as they come. But you get to this level, and he couldn’t let it go.
“I don’t get frustrated,” Breaston said. “I beat him sometimes. I ain’t gonna say that, that he locks me down. I get some. I’m not going to short myself here.”
It was noted that DRC was holding Breaston something fierce on a play during the morning practice. “It happens,” Breaston said. “We compete. Lot of people think it’s Larry and DRC out there but we have several other talented receivers, Steven Breaston being one of them.”
Breaston punctuated that statement with a huge laugh. I mentioned the fact he went all third person on us. “I did, I am sorry I went third person,” Breaston said, still smiling. “I got lost in the question. (The reporter) was all over me, I took offense. I’m sorry about that. … I get open. I’ve got to speak a little bit.” Then Breaston paused. “I was watching the Bengals yesterday, and I think that’s what happened. I was watching Chad and T.O. Got caught up in the moment.”
Just don’t forget the Cards’ weapons — Steven Breaston being one of them.
P.S. Just to see where Steven Breaston ranks on his own team, check out the newly released depth chart with the first preseason game approaching. No surprises. John Skelton is third-team QB over Max Hall. Ben Patrick is the official starting tight end. O.J. Jones remains a No. 2 receiver while camp star Stephen Williams still has to prove some things as a fourth-unit wideout. Andre Roberts is officially the top punt returner right now.
