The one, perhaps biggest question that fans have for the Arizona Cardinals is how the quarterback situation is gong to turn out. The problem is that neither the team nor the players know how it will play out. What is even worse is that after the play of both Kevin Kolb and John Skelton on Thursday, there isn't even a plan for the final preseason game yet, according to the coach himself.

"I don't really know right now. I'll see," said Whisenhunt when asked what the plan was moving forward. "Each of them has gotten two starts, obviously, but that's something we're going to think about going into this game."

Since it had only been one day since the game, he said that he and the coaches "really haven't put any thought into that at this particular time."

Whisenhunt did not even know whether or not he even needs to see Kevin Kolb or John Skelton in the final preseason game. Typically in teams' final preseason game, starters are in the game very little. However, the decision can be made in part by practice.

"We've still got some practice days left," explained the head coach. "Since we're not game planning, we've got an opportunity to do some competitive practices with our defense where you get a chance to assess their play.

"A lot of it is how they respond to their corrections from the game this week and the games the weeks before."

Whichever way he eventually goes, taking care of the football will be a key factor.

"The one thing we've got to get corrected, whether it's Jaymar Johnson or John Skelton or Kevin Kolb or Ryan Lindley, it's we can't turn the football over," explained Coach Whiz. "That's not going to cut it going forward." should the team handle both players against the Broncos. Should they both play? How long? Or should Whiz look at the final week of practice and make a decision, run with one of them for a couple of series and ride that guy until they either are awful or get hurt?

And what are your impressions about the turnover comment. On that alone, which direction would you go in? Both have turned over the football. Is there any good answer at all?
