Kevin Kolb Trade Rumors: Arizona Cardinals Are Not Content with Status Quo
Ken Whisenhunt Not Happy With QB Situation
While the Arizona Cardinals did not draft a quarterback in the 2011 NFL Draft, it does not mean Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt is happy with his quarterback situation.
The Cardinals had a revolving door at the quarterback position in 2010, partly due to injury and partly due to complete ineptness.
“After you go 5-11, I’m not comfortable with anybody we had playing that position,” Whisenhunt said via AZCardinals.com. “You have to weigh your opportunities in the draft against other opportunities. It’s a complete process. It’s not an isolated process.”
Translation: If the Cardinals aren’t going after Kolb, they have another well defined plan to fill the position in 2011. And it’s not starting (Jon) Skelton.
Skelton was not ready to start last year. That does not mean he will not be able to do it in the future, but trying to start him this year right out of the gate probably is not a good idea.
Getting a vetran like Kevin Kolb takes a lot of stress out of the situation because now the team has a legitimate starter and Skelton can keep learning and growing.
Of course, Whisenhunt may decide Skelton has peaked and completely overhaul the position because there is no way Derek Anderson stays in Arizona this year. The Cardinals probably will end up cutting Anderson because I have no idea at this point who would even want the guy as a backup.
Anderson has a great arm but nothing between the ears but a terrible attitude.
Once the league year starts, all these questions will be answered. If Kolb ends up in Arizona, it will come as a surprise to no one.
