They might not even draft one with their second or third round picks, either.But does that worry Coach Ken Whisenhunt?Not at all.“It really goes all back to preparation,” Whisenhunt said as a guest on Sports 620 KTAR’s Doug and Wolf Friday morning. “I think we’ve done a very good job of being prepared for whatever scenario unfolds for us. We’ve put a lot of time [and] a lot of effort into evaluating a number of different players [and] a number of different scenarios and I think we’re prepared to go when we have opportunities.” It’s now evident that Cam Newton, Jake Locker, Blaine Gabbert and Christian Ponder will not be present in any scenario the Cardinals have left.

Not even a whisper of the Ireland international’s name came from the visiting support at Ibrox. McGeady returns from suspension following a row with his manager Gordon Strachan for next Saturday’s visit of Dundee United to Parkhead.However, the names on everyone’s lips on Saturday were Kris Boyd, Artur Boruc and Scott McDonald. Boyd, with 18 goals to his name this season, remains the Scottish game’s most prolific marksman, but instances such as that in the 47th minute here support the view that he is not a top-class striker. Sent clean through by Barry Ferguson, Boyd fatally delayed his shot, allowing Boruc time to spread his body and make a fairly straightforward save.Celtic’s players and supporters chose to laud their goalkeeper for his interventions in a fixture in which he has courted controversy in recent times, but Boyd should have been more ruthless.Enter McDonald. Hitherto notable for some fine work in holding the ball up and linking with Georgios Samaras, the Australian latched on to a flick-on from his fellow striker, turned Kirk Broadfoot and angled a superb volley beyond Allan McGregor.”We effectively have to go the rest of the season undefeated,” conceded the Rangers manager, Walter Smith.Man of the match Scott McDonald (Celtic) McDonald puts Celtic all but out of reach Shares00 Scott McDonald celebrates at the final whistle after Celtic’s win at Ibrox.
