The only thing that Cardinals fans really have to talk about this week is Skelton, who made his NFL debut in Sunday's game due to, well, some inconceivable factors.
Just earlier this week, amidst all the controversy from Derek Anderson's poor play (and his press conference blowup), many were calling for Skelton to play.
Whisenhunt said that Skelton was not ready, and after some frustration, I realized that maybe he was right.
Sunday's game didn't disprove that theory either, although it was exciting to watch his NFL debut (the only ray of hope from the game).
The main reason he may not be ready is he may not be able to make all the NFL throws yet. College ball and NFL are getting closer, but some of what is required to be a quarterback you simply can't learn while in school.
The other reason is that he's going to get pressured. Constantly. The Rams did that Sunday, and Skelton was sacked once.
However, the Cardinals may not have a choice at this point.
Which is a great thing.
Not only does Skelton get to show the Cardinals what he can do, and whether they need to draft a first round quarterback, but he can work on his game in these last few contests.
And for the record, Skelton didn't look that bad Sunday, as he completed almost as many passes in one quarter as Anderson in three.
He really only had one bad throw, the throw to Fitzgerald on 3rd and 25. The other two incompletions were hardly his fault.
I'm excited to see what he can against a suspect Broncos defense.
