Coach Ken Whisenhunt just had his Monday press conference. He hasn’t yet decided on a quarterback — he joked the Cards were just going to go without one this week — although it sounds like it will be announced in the next couple of days. He’s not going to hold back to try some gamesmanship with the Saints.
“To be quite honest with you, I really don’t think New Orleans is scared with who we play there at quarterback,” Whisenhunt said. “So I don’t think it makes a factor in that. I’m not trying to (wait) from a strategic standpoint. I trying to do it out of fairness to everybody involved and what is best for our team.”
He said it probably “isn’t fair” right now to say he even knows what direction he is going to go, whether it is Max Hall or Derek Anderson. He did say he hasn’t even thought about bringing in another quarterback, nor does he see a need to right now.
I’ll have more later, after the open locker room session (although something tells me it may be sparsely attended by key players given the events of yesterday). We’ll see what the mood is. One thing Whisenhunt did talk to the fans at the end of his presser.
“Our fans have been very supportive and we could certainly use their support this week at the home game,” he said. “I believe we will be a good football team this year. I know I am asking for a little bit of patience, but ultimately, we are going to get it going the right way and I think we are going to be pleased.”
