It may be just an aberation, but watching Skelton run the hurry up to score our lone offensive TD today, reminded me of Kurt Warner.
Back in Whisenhunt's rookie year. Leinert was the starting QB and Warner, who had a better handle on the new offense, came in to run the hurry up at random points throughout the game.
Because Kolb did not have any offseason to learn the offense, and Skelton has been here 2 years now, perhaps that "change of pace" type of substitution would work for us.
The lack of offseason workouts league wide has been an advantage to offenses. There has been record passing and record scoring. This has not been the case for the Cards because we added a new QB, 3 new TE's, new #2 WR, and a new FB. That much change has to be part of what is holding us back. Having Kolb practice the main offense and Skelton practice the 2 minute drill, might help us improve our scoring by 7 to 10 points per game (1 or 2 additional scoring drives).
