John Skelton: What Do the Arizona Cardinals Have in the QB?

With a Christmas day win against the Cowboys, John Skelton has now tied Derek Anderson as the Cardinals' winningest quarterback of 2010.

His second win came in just his third NFL start, and it also saw him throw his first career NFL touchdown, a 74-yard bomb to fellow rookie Andre Roberts.

In his four NFL games, and three starts, Skelton, a rookie out of Fordham, has passed for 570 yards with one TD and one interception.

With the quarterback picture in Arizona up in the air for 2011, Skelton now has just one more game, against San Francisco at Candlestick Park, to cement himself as a real prospect for next season and to demonstrate to the Cardinals brass that they need not seek out the services of a rookie QB in the first round of next year's draft.

For the Cardinals, they must now assess what they have in John Skelton and how quickly they can develop him into an NFL-calibre quarterback.
