The Cardinals were back at work Tuesday, but only a handful of players appeared to actually be…
Tuesday Camp: Leinart Leading
Rookie Early Doucet who is aiming for the number three wider receiver position and Al Johnson both are still off of the field. It is hopeful that Doucet will be ready to play Saturday's preseason game against Kansas City, which still gives him a fighting chance to land the wide receiver spot.
After Ken Whisenhunt announced that players will be benched for dumb penalties in the preseason games, the players in camp have been showing more patience and clear heads in snapping drills. Though they cannot fully practice sportsman like conduct in preseason, hopefully the fair warning is enough to straighten up their acts.
With Matt Leinart out of most last season's games he is showing in the preseason opener and at camp that he is prepared to lead the team. He played an exceptional first game with strong passes and great leadership.
Back in training camp he continues to hone the skills he has been presenting over the past weeks. In red zone drills he is showing the ability to handle the team anywhere on the field. Though Warner had a majority of the playing time last season and displayed his ability to play under red zone pressure, Leinart is picking up the responsibility with ease.
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie also continues to show great speed and skill at camp after his excellent display at the preseason opener. The way he applies himself in camp and runs every drill with intensity is showing him to be an excellent pick for Cardinals.
With the first preseason game under their belt, the Cardinals continue to show growth as they learn what to improve on from the live NFL games. If the Cardinals need to continue to clean up their act and practice the little mistakes that were shown in last Thursday's game.
