Things Are Going Great For Kevin Kolb In Arizona

Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt did a radio interview last week and was asked about his shaky QB situation. It was less than a year ago that he sent a second round pick in this year's draft and CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to the Eagles in exchange for Kolb. However, Kolb was a bust in year one while backup John Skelton led the team to five wins in his seven starts.

Whisenhunt says both Kolb and John Skelton, the team's 2010 5th round pick, will get a chance to start next year because Skelton earned it with his play and Kolb... well he's there.

"Both guys are going to get opportunities because John [Skelton] certainly deserves it from the way that he played over the back half of the season and Kevin certainly deserves it from the reason that we went out, got him, and brought him in," Whisenhunt said.

Neither guy got a ringing endorsement from Whisenhunt, who said that, while they’ve "shown at time they can do things very well, they’ve shown at times that they are knuckleheads."

Kolb started only 9 games for the Cardinals last season after signing a 5-year, $63 million contract. He threw for 9 TDs and 8 picks in an injury plagued season. He's due a $7 million roster bonus next month which has fueled some speculation that the team would cut ties with him, but for now that doesn't seem to case. That is a lot of money, but it would be pretty early to give up on him given how much they surrendered to get him.
