Wow, just when I thought the Arizona QB situation couldn't get any worse, Skelton and Kolb make scrambled eggs out of Whiz's game plan. I hope this was not a preview of what's in store for NFL fans looking for competitive football.
First of all, the Offensive game plan did not attempt to stretch the Defense at all. Skelton was only able to muster one scoring drive ending in a field goal in five posessions. The other four possessions resulted in an INT, a punt and two three and outs. Play calling was a big stick in the spokes.
Then Kolb took over in the second Quarter and again the play calling was questionable with Kolb's first two possessions ending in a three and out and an INT. Tough game to watch at that point but suddenly a light went on and in his third series Kolb threw for a TD to end the half. Maybe Kolb has some game?
The Third Quarter began with KK throwing a textbook pick six right into the hands of the defender, as if he meant to do that. Air out of the balloon! His last series, ending in a Cardinals FG, was anticlimactic. Time to head for the exits.
Wait a minute! Here comes Max Hall onto the field and promptly rallies the Cardinals to two TD and has a chance to win the game in the closing seconds with his final series. Then the shocker, thats not Max Hall, it's some kid named Ryan Lindley. 6-3 235 out of San Diego State. I like this guy. I think we should add him to the Quaterback Carousel.
You guys remember the QB carousel that Whiz brought into the franchise a couple of years ago. I have a feeling we may be seeing a lot more of this kid while the head coach tries to fit his players into his game plan.
I may be wrong, but so far this team plays like it's confused. I know these games don't count but when I saw the Saint's hitting on all cylinders like a well oiled machine, I can only scratch my head when the Cardinals attempt to go through the paces in all of their pre-season contests.
The NFC West may have a new cellar dweller.
