NFL and ESPN correspondent Adam Schefter report that John Skelton is considered the favorite as the starting QB for the Cardinals. This is coming after Kolb has struggled in training camp and both preseason games. Kolb is expected to start against the Raiders, but if he continues to struggle he might not get another chance to start for a while.
I personally think this is GREAT news... actually this is the BEST news I've heard in nearly a year. I always KNEW the Kevin Kolb deal was a BUST. For starters he doesn't fit in our system, two he was too fragile, and three the guy has terrible pocket poise. Its unfortunate we gave up so much to get him. Now this doesn't mean I hate Kolb, but I just know he'll never be the QB we need him to be. The man is always falling apart, and we can't depend on him to last an entire season.
The fact that Whisenhunt is favoring Skelton for the starters spot, and not Kolb shows that money will be a non-factor. One more week for Kevin Kolb, and if he doesn't improve, fans and coaches will be done with him.
