Cardinals vs. Seahawks: Arizona and its carousel of QBs against Seattle

There has been little consistency at the position when it comes to who starts against the division foe.

The quarterback situation has been dicey at best for the Arizona Cardinals over the years. With the acquisition of Carson Palmer last year, that was supposed to change.

It did, but he got injured and is lost for the season with a torn ACL.

Fox Sports 910's Mike Jurecki tweeted an interesting list the other day about the quarterbacks that have started for the Cardinals over the last several years in Seattle. There has been no continuity.

In 2008 and 2009, it was Kurt Warner. Matt Leinart did get into the game in 2009.

In 2010, it was Max Hall. Derek Anderson started the game in Arizona.

In 2011, it was Kevin Kolb. John Skelton started the home game against the Hawks.

In 2012, it was Ryan Lindley (the 58-0 debacle). John Skelton started the home game against Seattle and Kevin Kolb finished it.

In 2013, it was Carson Palmer.

In 2014, it will be Drew Stanton.

Palmer and Warner are the only two to have started both games in a season against Seattle. Stanton has a chance to be the third. The Cardinals will play Seattle for the second time in Week 16 at home. It is currently slated to be the Sunday night game.

Cardinals fans need to hope Stanton stays healthy. The two times one quarterback has started both games against Seattle are the years when the team has a winning season. At this point, if something happens and either Logan Thomas or Ryan Lindley have to start in Week 16, Arizona already has wrapped up a winning season with nine wins, but it certainly would hurt their hopes to get deep into the postseason.
