So Ken Whisenhunt was asked today, even though he likes to keep for example his practice schedule the same, if he has looked at others areas he could change.
“Oh yeah, I have changed it up every week looking for a combination,” Whisenhunt said. “I am grasping for straws trying to find something that works. Just to be clear, when I say we are going to stay the same, I am talking about how we practice, when we practice, what the schedule is, those things. You have to have some type of consistency to come out of this. As far as anything else? I am certainly willing to try.”
Whisenhunt is a superstitious coach. Superstitions and change don’t often mesh. “People that know me know how superstitious I am and they know my routines,” he said. “For me to change it up is a real departure.”
Whiz said it would take him forever to note every superstition he has (and he noted many football coaches are like that). It comes down, he believes, as a stress reliever, “as far as what time you get up, how you come in to work, what type of clothes you wear, how you put your shoes on, what you eat, when you eat … I could keep going.”
Speaking of stress, Whisenhunt said he’s been thankful for the support he has gotten from many people, because these are unquestionably difficult times.
“As much criticism as there is, you don’t understand how much you beat yourself up,” Whisenhunt said. “We want to win, I like the excitement we have in our stadium, I like it when the fans are excited and proud about our team and it hurts when we aren’t performing.”
— WR Steve Breaston (knee) was limited Thursday after practicing full Wednesday. But three others — DE Calais Campbell (ankle, limited Thursday), LB Paris Lenon (knee, full Thursday) and S Matt Ware (shoulder, full Thursday) were upgraded. The rest of the injury report was unchanged.
