Recently on Bickley and MJ on Xtra 910, Ken Whisenhunt was discussing the draft and quarterbacks specifically with the hosts. One of his comments has been shared in local and national media, on how, regarding quarterbacks, specifically Blaine Gabbert and Cam Newton, "there is nobody that really stands out like Sam Bradford did last year."
What exactly does he mean and does that reveal anything about how the Cardinals might go with the fifth pick?
It can mean any number of things. I caught Brian Billick (former coach who has a championship ring) on NFL Network commenting on Whiz' comments, sharing his knowledge of coach language. As we know, Whisenhunt likes to keep things pretty close to the vest.
Billick said that particular comment could mean:
- If neither quarterback is available at number five, it is OK.
- If one is available at number five and the Cardinals don't draft him, it is OK.
- If the Cardinals draft one, it is OK. We will be patient and he probably will not be expected to play this year.
