The quarterback was dropped into 11-on-11 plays for the first time Tuesday, which was the idea floated by coach Steve Wilks last week as the Cardinals come to the end of their offseason work.
The whole plan to prep Bradford going into the dead time before training camp, Wilks said, was to make sure he felt great. That is where everyone involved – Wilks and Bradford – say Bradford is now.
He’s gotten stronger with his rehab, Wilks said. He’s definitely studied the playbook, understands the system. For the most part we have given him the (defensive) looks that he needs, but you want to make sure they are live (looks.)
Once everything calmed down with the coaching change and Coach Wilks came over, it was a no-brainer for me, Young III said. I have a lot of respect for them, as men, De’Aaron Fox Authentic Jersey first and foremost, and then as coaches. I’ve learned a lot, both on the field and off the field, how to be a professional. I like to be around people that are going to challenge me and get the best out of me. They don’t want nothing less, and I don’t want nothing less.
What that means in terms of Rosen’s actual ability to perform once he is on the field is unknown. Even he wasn’t sure Thursday how he’d define it.
I don’t know, Rosen said after the day’s OTA. I just want to be the best quarterback in the NFL, regardless of when I am ready now or later or whenever. So it’s not really my decision to make.
As the Cardinals wind down their final week of OTAs and ready for mandatory minicamp next week before the veterans scatter for the summer, Rosen’s pre-training camp on-field work is nearly at an end. Rosen notes the only way to improve is to play, and the only Authentic Yasmani Grandal Jersey way to get those reps is to take reps.
Earlier this week, coach Steve Wilks said the http://www.authenticdodgersstore.com/Authentic-Yasmani-Grandal-Jersey Cardinals hoped to get starter Sam Bradford more work in minicamp, which likely means http://www.officialbasketballkingsstore.com/authentic-5-deaaron-fox-jersey.html paring some reps back for the first-round rookie. Wilks has consistently praised Rosen’s intelligence and ability to pick up the playbook, although there are obviously areas in which to get better.
One of those, Wilks said, was Rosen’s decision-making at times, in particular the red zone. With points already available there with a field goal, Rosen needs to be judicious with risk.
