Week 17 Stats: 19-of-34, 225 yards, one touchdown and one interception (Brian Hoyer)
The Arizona Cardinals absolutely have the worst quarterback situation in the entire league. This is a team that had to throw in Brian Hoyer less than a week after he was added to the roster. The major struggles at the position came when Kevin Kolb went down with an injury.
Kolb wasn't having a great season, but he was doing a decent job avoiding turnovers and making plays in pressure situations. However, he just wasn't able to remain healthy long enough to help keep the wheels from falling off.
Arizona's offensive line played a major role in the struggles of each of the quarterbacks. This group has allowed a league-high 56 sacks this season. That pressure is one of the main reasons why John Skelton played so poorly.
Skelton doesn't possess the athleticism or foot speed needed to move around the pocket. Ken Whisenhunt recognized this and decided to give Ryan Lindley a shot.
The Lindley experiment didn't go so well, mainly because Whisenhunt did nothing to protect the rookie quarterback. There's no scenario that makes sense for Lindley to have three games this season where he threw the ball 30 times or more. In one of those games, he threw 52 times for no touchdowns and four interceptions.
This issue is a combination of poor play on the part of the quarterbacks, issues along the offensive line and some questionable coaching decisions.
