After practice Wednesday

Posted by Darren Urban on December 30, 2009 – 2:07 pm

Safety Antrel Rolle sat out practice today with a bruised thigh, but coach Ken Whisenhunt sounded like he wasn’t that worried about the situation. Defensive end Kenny Iwebema was limited with a head injury as well. A handful of guys that were listed as limited — K Neil Rackers (groin), TE Ben Patrick (head), FB Dan Kreider (neck), CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (toe), special-teamer Sean Morey (head) and RB Beanie Wells (groin) — should be fine. Also fine are WR Larry Fitzgerald and CB Greg Toler, each of whom hurt their elbows Sunday.

Much of the talk today was about the same subject as Monday — what to do against the Packers when there is a good chance the Cards will see them a second time. The answers were all the same: We play hard, but it’s the coach’s decision. Whisenhunt reiterated he will likely make choices Sunday.

(Packers coach Mike McCarthy, by the way, said on the conference call the Packers will play to win and keep momentum.)

The Cardinals also had a change in the practice squad after guard Trevor Canfield — one of the Cards’ seventh-round picks this year — signed with the Seahawks. Replacing him was guard Jonathan Palmer, who has bounced around the league.

    I wonder if the Cards play the Packers twice, how much of the plays they run will be to set them up for the playoffs.

    I have been thinking this for awhile and seeing a new article on the subject i was wondering why you havent brought up john lotts expiring contract…..i am sure you have but i think there needs to be a whole article on the matter.

    The man is the backbone of the team and why we have been so healthy.
    Please write an article about this and how we need to keep him here and quit lowballing our most valued people in the organization.

    Unless your hands are somewhat tied behind your back…..then i understand why you haven’t done it yet.

    this just coming from a dedicated fan that wants this team to continue to win.

    Do you think they’ll play Rackers in Week 17 so that he can shake off the rust before the playoffs? Or do you believe that they don’t want to risk re-aggrevating his groin injury? Is Rackers still limping?

    Whisenhunt said today he hoped Rackers would play this weekend.

    I agree about the need to extend Lott’s contract for as long as he’s willing to sign for…and Whiz too. They should have resigned Whiz after the Super Bowl run last year; I understand it was just one year and he was only two years into his contract, but the changes he had made, the strides he had made, etc. were more than evident that he wasn’t a 1-2 year wonder. And now he has us as back to back division champs, which only gives his agent the ability to negotiate oh, another million or so a year. If we go to another Super Bowl this year? He’ll be paid in the top 10 in the league despite only having 3 years experience as a head coach.

    I’m all for the press pushing these two guys getting renewed once a week until it happens. There’s not really that much you can do about keeping coordinators, and Whiz has proven the ability to coach up coordinators anyways, but we simply can’t afford to lose Whiz or Lott…these guys have done things no one else has been able to do for decades in this organization and are not replaceable.

    We the fans and season ticket holders who pay some of the bills don’t really have a voice unless it comes out through the press.

    Lott is probably one of the biggest reasons we are where we’re at right now (and for the last two years). It’s amazing how healthy this team has been and the guy is also on fire on the sidelines every game. If the Cards let him go I think we’ll see a big drop. Pay the guy.

    Logan –

    Thanks for bringing up this important issue. A Lott of people feel the same way as you do. This team has been amazingly healthy over the last couple seasons.
    Yes, re-sign John Lott!
