Clint Bruce, a former member of SEAL Team 5, addressed the Cardinals before Wednesday’s practice, their last of the bye week.
“Hopefully we reload, come back Monday for a great practice and don’t be ‘the guy,'” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said. “Too many times when a guy gets a day off, he gets tazed in Miami, South Beach or something. We don’t want any of that stuff. We don’t need any distractions. That was the message.”
The players were able to get a very good message today from Clint Bruce. Bruce explained how preparing himself for both football and war were comparable.
Bruce’s “resting or reloading” mentality hit home for the Cardinals, who are 4-4 and still in contention for a wild-card berth.
