Training Camp Cliff Notes

Saturday, 2:30 p.m.
After a long three weeks, Cardinals' training camp came to an end on Saturday morning. If you missed out on the action, here's the condensed yet informative version of what transpired in Flagstaff.
Same old Leinart: Whether it's good or bad, Matt Leinart looked how he's always looked. Some good, some bad with overall inconsistent play.
Not so fast Derek: Some thought Derek Anderson would compete for the starting quarterback job but Anderson has yet to click with the Cards' offense.
Share the rock: Beanie Wells and Tim Hightower both deserve their fair share of carries and the running back by committee will continue.
O-line, oh no: There's still hope the offensive line will gel, but there were some shaky times during camp. Keep your fingers crossed here.
Musical wideouts: Injuries and newcomers made for an interesting camp at wide receiver. Remember the name Stephen Williams.
New faces, no problem: The overhauled defense was supposed to be a liability but the rookie and free-agent additions may have upgraded the unit.
D-line domination: No description needed here. We'll wait and see if Darnell Dockett and company can translate this to real opponents.
Secondary sneaky good: Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Adrian Wilson remain but newbies Greg Toler and Kerry Rhodes are the ones to watch.
Meet Mr. Washington: An early candidate for Defensive Rookie of the Year is Daryl Washington. Should be fun to watch.
Who's that?: Unknown rookie free agents were one of the highlights of camp. Look for some to contribute during the upcoming season.
