Final Grade: C+
There is no way around it; Kevin Kolb had an extremely rough day. However, he actually didn’t play too poorly.
Did he miss a few throws? Absolutely, but there is no way this loss is on his shoulders. He made plays that other starting quarterbacks in this league do not make.
Kolb threw the ball 50 times in this game, but completed just 28 passes for 289 yards. After throwing two interceptions last week, he did not throw any in Week 5.
He is not to blame for this loss.
Fourth Quarter: C
For the second quarter in a row, Kevin Kolb didn’t play that bad. The pass in the end zone to Michael Floyd should have been made a second earlier, but aside from that, he was ok.
He actually stayed in the pocket on most plays which is something that very few quarterbacks would do with this offensive line.
Third Quarter: C
As frustrating as it has been watching Kolb this game, you almost have to feel bad for the guy. Russ Grimm must have been offended when people started saying that the Cardinals have one of the worst offensive lines. He has made sure that they have the worst.
Kolb made a couple of good throws to Fitz and had a great sell job after being sacked, which resulted in a personal foul penalty against St. Louis.
Second Quarter: D+
After a solid opening quarter, Kevin Kolb took a huge step down in the second as the offense was shutout.
He was very inconsistent, missing on several throws and then making a couple of clutch third down passes.
Time to step up, Kolb.
First Quarter: B
Kevin Kolb took the field following a St. Louis touchdown and looked calm and collected. He led Arizona on a drive of over nine minutes that resulted in a field goal.
He did miss Rob Housler over the middle and did not take advantage of a wide open Larry Fitzgerald, but he made a few nice throws to make up for that.
Kolb now has the Cardinals driving again as we head into the second.
