In the deal, the Cardinals agreed to a new five-year, $63.5 million contract with Kolb. That’s a lot of money for a guy with only seven starts to his name. Even worse is Kolb’s inconsistent play in those games.
Only 3-4 in those seven career starts, he showed flashes of greatness in his debut, with back-to-back 300-yard passing games. Otherwise, Kolb’s career numbers are pretty pedestrian.
Eleven touchdown passes. Nineteen interceptions. A quarterback rating of 73.2. These numbers don’t jump out as the kind you would place the future of your franchise on.
Even worse, the team has still not fully addressed its glaring weaknesses on its offensive line. The line gave up a whopping 50 sacks in 2010 (second-worst in the league).
Not a great sign.
