If you thought Thursday night would provide some clarity to the Arizona Cardinals' quarterback battle, think again.
As Trent Dilfer noted on the ESPN telecast, Kolb was clearly pressing at that point. That's why his next possession was so promising. Working in a two-minute offense at the end of the second quarter, Kolb marched the Cardinals 76 yards on seven plays, capping off the drive with a 3-yard TD strike with Andre Roberts. The big play, however, was a 53-yard hookup with Larry Fitzgerald.
It was a nice play by Kolb, who was flushed to his left, forcing him to throw downfield across it his body. It also helps having the greatest wide receiver of a generation on your side.
Kolb finished 17-of-22 for 156 yards for one touchdown and the two picks. He made some plays, but the mistakes have to terrify Ken Whisenhunt. We say Skelton still has the gig at this point, but only because of Kolb's seeming inability to make a push.
