Our defnese is good enough to keep games close,IF. Our speacial teams are good enough to win some games, IF. The IF after those 2 staements is: provided the offense doesn't screw everything up.
Last year, when we won 7 of the final 9 games. 4 were OT wins. We also won , and lost a bunch of nail biters.
Skelton is the safer choice between the QB's. He manages the game better. That means, more 3 & outs. It also means, less turnovers and less overall production. It means, like last year, a lot of close games that can go either way. Overall, if Skelton is the QB, we'll win anywhere between 6 & 11 games. (11 if all the breaks go our way).
Kolb, when he gets hot can be a very exciting player. He has the potential to move the ball downfield in both small and large chunks of yardage. He is a more accurate thrower than Skelton. But, he also takes more chances and makes more stupid plays. His style of play will lead to more big wins, and more big loses. If Kolb is the QB, we'll win anywhere between 6 & 11 games. (11 if Kolb eventually "gets it" and stops playing like a moron).
In any case, it looks like it'll be another typically year in the life of Cardinal fan. We wont be good enough to win the Superbowl. And, we wont be bad enough to get the # 1 pick and a potential franchise QB (I dont even know who will available).
Story of my life.
