Cardinals’ open San Diego practice Aug. 16

Posted by Darren Urban on June 17, 2016 – 11:17 am

Like the Cardinals, the Chargers have released their training camp dates. That includes info on the one open practice in San Diego for the Cardinals, who will spend a week in San Diego prior to their preseason game there. The open practice will take place on Tuesday, Aug. 16 at Qualcomm Stadium from 6 to 8 p.m. against the Chargers. The two teams play at Qualcomm that Friday night.

As with the practices at University of Phoenix Stadium, parking and admission will be free in San Diego.

Coach Bruce Arians has been looking to practice against another team in training camp for a couple of seasons, and it worked out with the Chargers this year.

    Practice in San Diego will help the rookies practice travelling well. Be neat to find out what the secrets Larry Fitzgerald has on eating when travelling. And Patrick Peterson too. Its so great to be in the B(ad)A(ss) era of Cardinal Football. San Diego has great seafood at Sally’s and Season 52 on the Bay. If that area little too much suit and tie, Moe’s Hamburgers is a great place for people watching. Well for those who find people watching entertaining.

    I think you got “couple of reasons” mixed up with “couple of seasons”

    Craig / Darren…..the article mentioned “a couple of seasons” not “a couple of reasons”.

    Was really hoping that it would be Wed or Thurs. Driving down from LA with the family and that is the second week of school for the kids. May have to drive back and forth for the practice and game now, tough to ditch school for the whole week.

    Urban, hope to see you at the game. We have 50 yard line 17 rows up, ill try to spot you and get your autograph for the kids, they know who you are and read your blogs, they will be excited, lol

    Do you know if there will be points at the end of the game for the kids to walk close and get Autographs from the players from the stands?

    Nice to only drive 2 hours to a game instead of the normal 6 hours for a home game. But now I have Rams tickets once a year too.

    RE: Autographs

    Usually at the end of road games, that’s a little tougher. Key players will be out of the game and might come over, but you’ve got to get ushers to allow the kids to get down there. As soon as the game ends, most guys are headed to the locker room. It’d be a tight window at best.

    Any idea about before or after the practice?

    RE: Practice

    I would doubt there will be a set opportunity but in the relaxed time of camp, always a better shot. No outline of the night’s logistics are out, though, so maybe there will be a window.

    Great time to get out of “the valley of the sun”🔥🔥😱 and have the opportunity to test ourselves to see if we are as good as advertised against a quality team. Great job by BA in setting this up! I love these joint practices as I think we tend to become predictable and somewhat complacent when going against our own guys and this is an extra opportunity for some excellent young players who wont make the final 53 because of out depth.
