And then it was over.
The last practice today was a lighter affair — the tempo was still good (these guys wanted to finish ASAP) but it was more slow-mo; for instance, on many of the passes, the DBs let up as the ball approached, just to make sure there wasn’t any stupid contact that could cause an injury. Then the final horn blew and Herman Johnson raised his helmet above his 6-foot-7 head and Tim Hightower chucked his jersey in the air in celebration.
Whisenhunt declined to talk about planned playing time for the Tennessee game. “We have a plan but a lot will depend on how it unfolds,” Whisenhunt said. “I would have never guessed we would have played (QB) Derek (Anderson) into the fourth quarter last week.”
The biggest news of the day was Whiz talking about last night’s rookie show, which included a skit where players — Whiz didn’t indicate who — imitated Whisenhunt, linebackers coach Matt Raich and Larry Fitzgerald doing a breakdancing routine. “We were actually quite good dancers,” Whisenhunt said, and when asked if it was then OK for the rookies to make fun of the head coach, Whiz replied “It didn’t seem to stop them. Guess the only way you can look at it is they feel a lot more comfortable with themselves.”
(P.S. This is a picture of WR Mike Jones. I took it this morning and I liked how it looked, so here it is.)
That’s it. Camp’s over, and I am outta here.
