Coach Ken Whisenhunt”s opening statement from his presser today? “OK, well, no decision on the quarterback yet.” Beautiful.
– I will have more on the running back situation in a story later today, but as good as recovering running back Ryan Williams looked in his first practice, Whiz cautioned patience. “It’s a little bit like the quarterback situation,” he said. “It’s something we have to see over time.” Whiz did say he’s rooting for Williams not just because he is a good player but also because he is a good kid.
– Whiz was asked about how he’s evolved as a coach. One of the things he noted: “I’d like to think I am a better coach going from 1-6 and finishing 7-2 and adapting to what we had to do to try and improve.” Whiz did note, given his background (playing/working with guys like Joe Gibbs and Bill Parcells) he is old school. I think we pretty much knew that.
– Whiz, talking about the cornerbacks, mentioned that he thinks he has enough good ones that he believes a couple that will end up being released will find work elsewhere in the NFL. I agree with that notion.
– Undrafted rookie OLB Zach Nash sprained his ankle in practice yesterday. His return is to be determined, but Whisenhunt said Nash had shown some things during the offseason. With the Cards in search for reserve OLBs behind Sam Acho and O’Brien Schofield, it’s a tough time to get hurt for Nash. Opportunities exist.
