Arizona Cardinals: Plenty of time for quarterback debate
Understandably everyone wanted to see the new Arizona Cardinals quarterbacks on the first day of practice
While the first practice of Arizona Cardinals training camp was taking place and when it was over on Saturday, many wanted to talk about the new quarterbacks. Just a warning, there will be many clamoring for nothing but Josh Rosen over the next month.
As we mentioned earlier, Rosen had an alright day in day one. He threw a bad interception but it was just practice. I think that’s where some people get lost sometimes.
NFL Network had reporters at practice to see Rosen and Sam Bradford in action. Steve Wyche was at practice and on air mentioned how the Cardinals, despite naming Bradford as the starter, are secretly looking to see Rosen take hold of the job in camp.
I don’t see it. Not yet. The thing is, this is the first day of camp and clearly this has already shown will be a dominating topic during the next several weeks as the team prepares for the 2018 regular season.
Nothing would be greater than to see Rosen succeed and see him succeed early in his career. We can’t ride his every throw and make a decision on whether that will make or break his chances to not only play but start at some point this season.
Bradford should be given every chance here. The Cardinals need veteran leadership at quarterback right now. Rosen needs to learn.
We all need to be patient with the process. It is prudent to push Rosen as if he was preparing to be the number one backup, although right now Mike Glennon would hold that spot.
Glennon really hasn’t been mentioned much lately. If Bradford gets hurt (which is a distinct possibility) then many will want to immediately see Rosen.
Rosen has a good arm. There is no doubt. He is going to be a great quarterback at some point. Right now, it’s just day one. Let’s temper the excitement a little.
It will be fun to watch him grow over the coming weeks and months. We will talk about the quarterbacks a lot in the preseason. When the time comes, if everyone is healthy, we need to trust the Cardinals will make the right decision who should be the guy on the field in September.
