What to watch for:

Even though Matt Leinart has been named the starting quarterback for the Cards, look for a heated battle in camp between him and Derek Anderson.  Also look for a good battle for the 3rd spot between John Skelton and Max Hall, who signed as a free-agent from BYU.

Don’t be surprised to see coach Ken Whisenhunt cancel a practice in lieu of going to the movies.  So be on the watch out for practice schedule changes.

Same field will serve as practice as in years past, directly east of the NAU Skydome.  If it rains, the team will move inside the Skydome for practice.
