As many of you have probably heard by now there was a case of the boos at the Cardinals Fanfest Wednesday night. The person those boos were intended for? Kevin Kolb. Hit the jump to hear our thoughts.
As many of you know I support Kevin Kolb so I tried to limit my bias by asking for the other writers own personal opinions then I would sneak my own in there. Here are the reactions.
Jess Root: Premature and ignorant. Kolb hasn't done anything to deserve boos...yet.
CardsFan08: I agree with Jess. Kolb doesn't have the body of work to boo yet. We don't know what we have in him yet, he's barely even played for the team. So boo'ing him at the fanfest is premature, and immature of the fans who participated to sully their own teams fanfast with boo'ing.
Khodder: I think most know I am not the biggest Kolb fan, but come on, you don't boo the guy...Yet .I fully beleive that Whis would yank Kolb before he would begin to deserve boos on the basis of his on field play, he is a good coach like that, the best players will play.
Tyler Nickel: While I think it was a bit premature for fans to start booing Kevin Kolb after just one year of poor play, I think it is all a culmination of their frustration with the team's inability to find ANYONE to replace Kurt Warner. They have seen quite the carousel at the QB position for the past two seasons and understandably, they want someone that is finally going to take the spot for good. So I think Kolb deserves more time, but I can understand the fans' frustration all at the same time.
So now we get to me... Like I said a lot of people on ROTB know I'm a huge fan of Kolb. While I won't try to sugarcoat his lack of play last season, I will say this. The fact that he is being booed is sad. The fact that he is being booed in June is sadder. I know many fans are frustrated with the loss of Kurt Warner two years ago, and the QB carousel we have endured since, but Coach Whisenhunt and Rod Graves know what they're doing. They have turned this franchise around and know what they were getting themselves into with Kolb. The trade was a high risk high reward one and Kolb showed glimpses of that high reward, primarily during the OT win against the Cowboys. Skelton has a future in the league, but hopefully the Front Office decision is support by Kevin Kolbs play during this season, so Skeltons future can be elsewhere.
