Post-practice: Chike, Breaston sit

Posted by Darren Urban on September 16, 2009 – 2:05 pm

The first practice of the week saw linebacker Chike Okeafor sitting out with a bad shoulder and receiver Steve Breaston still out with his balky knee. WRs Anquan Boldin (hamstring) and Early Doucet (ribs) were limited, but coach Ken Whisenhunt said he feels better about his receiving situation this week than last — at least, he has a better handle on it.

Keilen Dykes was brought up — and Lance Long released — mostly because of DL Kenny Iwebema’s bad ankle. The Cards needed another defensive lineman. S Matt Ware sat out with his bad shoulder. G Reggie Wells was added to the injury report this week with a bad thumb but he practiced full and it shouldn’t be an issue.

Otherwise the talk was about the Cards’ up-and-down offense (a full story coming later). Most of the same things were said — it’s about details, we’ve got to clean up mistakes — but no one was as passionate about it as Boldin, who was blunt in his assessments. Boldin said the players simply have to get focused. As far as the problems, “It’s not a mystery,” he said.

    A couple of thoughts.

    The sense of urgency is encouraging, but one thing I hope becomes part of each player’s DNA is that one great play is just that – one great play. Unless you follow it with consistent, sound football and more great plays, that one great play may not be enough.

    Second, I hope someone in the front office is chronicalling how things can go off the tracks and be out of synch for Game One, so that next year, the team will be ready for it. The Niners were – they stuck to a conservative game plan that enabled them to minimimize their number of mistakes and grind to a win. Next year, we should approach Game 1 with the same mentality.

    I noticed the same thing as you td.Kurt sure did look old,tired,and hesitant against the niners.As far as Fitz being double teamed,if we would have acquired tony gonzales when we had the chance,it would be a different story.
