And I’m teaching you a lesson in sarcasm.
Kolb, who signed a five-year, $63 million dollar contract after being dealt for CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie last offseason, struggled during his first year in Arizona. In fact, those struggles and injuries opened the window for little-known backup John Skelton to revive the Cardinals’ season and lead them to the doorstep of the playoffs.
Last week, head coach Ken Whisenhunt talked about his quarterback situation, and, uh, gave a less than stellar endorsement of Kolb.
“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.
So, you know, Skelton has earned the right to play, while, like Kolb is there.
