The lunch news? No QB yet

Posted by Darren Urban on July 26, 2012 – 12:30 pm

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.

    The only one giving a daily update is Whiz, and we won’t post a plain full presser unless it’s newsy.

    Does anyone think they are having a real competition. By real i mean one where either one can win.Does anyone think that Kurt Warner really had a competition with Josh McCown? I don’t think so, and never have.If Dennis Green had not promised the starting job to Warner he would never have come here. I also don’t believe there was a real competition between ML and Warner.Why they insist on saying that there is i have no clue.Sometimes i think maybe football is like wrestling,and roller derby,all just a show.

    I know it’s still a little early to tell, but how’s Peterson looking so far in the CB role? I saw the play he made on Floyd, but does it look like hes put in some good off season work in your opinion?

    RE: Peterson

    Peterson looks just fine. He’s the No. 1 CB.

    “Does anyone think they are having a real competition.”

    Since you ask, yes. They wouldn’t be splitting reps if they weren’t. Follow the camps of teams that have an obvious #1 and you should be able to recognize the difference.

    Having said that, I’d be happy if your thoughts on the issue had a shred of accuracy. Would be nice if one would emerge as a clear cut #1 before the season starts.
