Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports that it’s possible the Cardinals have gone from having no quarterbacks to having two.
Coach Ken Whisenhunt wouldn’t provide a timeline for picking between Matt Leinart and Derek Anderson.
Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has no desire to get in the middle of the debate; “I’m not going to comment on that; that’s a no-win situation for me to be in. We all trust in Coach Whisenhunt’s philosophy and expertise. He’s led
us to two straight playoff seasons . . . so why wouldn’t we believe in
what he’s going to do?” (Fine, but we’ve got a feeling that Fitz would welcome right about now the return of a certain “old ass man.”)
Cardinals WR Steve Breaston thinks it was bad for him to dive into the end zone last night because, well, he’s so damn good; “I don’t think that was a smart move, but it was just instinct,” Breaston
said. “Just being the playmaker I am, I wanted to make plays. You still
have to show the NFL that you are still a playmaker.”
If the Bears’ defense is proud that they held the Cardinals’ starting offense to 14 points, they shouldn’t be.
Israel Idonije got the start at left DE for the Bears, over Mark Anderson.
Bears WR Johnny Knox made “tremendous adjustments” to “some shaky [Jay] Cutler passes.”
If the Bears had a competent backup quarterback, Jay Cutler’s performance in the third preseason game could have him on thin ice. (Which goes a long way toward explaining why the man who traded for and paid Cutler chose not to sign a competent backup quarterback.)
The home crowd at Soldier Field wasn’t booing; they were chanting “blow it all up and start over.”
