It has been no secret that the Arizona Cardinals have had a quarterback competition all year long.  Although John Skelton was named the Week 1 starter, soon he and Kevin Kolb began battling injuries and it became a week-to-week decision on who would start at quarterback.  Now that the season in past the mid-point and the Cardinals are on their third quarterback of the year, Ryan Lindley, it is clearer than ever that the Cardinals have no game plan for the rest of the season. Week 12 marks Ryan Lindley’s first career start and is also the official white flag waving for the Cardinals.  The season is now over for the Cardinals unless the rookie 6th round draft pick Lindley is able to put together a Pro-Bowl caliber rest of the season, which will be near impossible for the quarterback who has thrown 20 career passes and only completed nine.… Read more

  • Skelton is too much a finesse quarterback. He has no street smarts or killer instinct. Kevin Kolb is flakey for some reason (maybe too much money) and has softened him. Not entirely his fault since he gets zero protection. Not much killer instinct with him either. Lindley deserves to learn to be our QB and see if he can be a Pro Bowl caliber QB. I hope so. I think he is a good fit for us.
  • a total experiment. As usual, the Cards fail to have a plan. They should have signed Vince Young when they had a chance. They need a QB who can run with the OL they have. Might have made a huge difference this season. Owners are tired of spending big bucks on Whiz's experiments. He cannot evaluate QB's, plain and simple
  • I second your point. Vince would have at least made it interesting.
  • At what point do we quit saying, "if they had a quarterback, if they had an offense, if they had a..." and realize we should be saying, "if we had a coach (et al.)..." No game plan? That's not the players. We have some of the league's premier players, yet we do not have a team. It's time for the Bidwell's to put the blame where it lies and get a premier head coach who brings a competent support staff. (But, can we keep Ray Horton, please?).
  • The money that they paid Kolb is riduculous. Not worth have of that. Skelton seems to be in a daze half the time. Should of started Lindley a long time ago. Gave him a chance to show what he could do. Seems to me he is the best of the 3. And I agree we need new coaches.
  • This is the "just reward" for the Cardinals pouring millions of dollars toward keeping sick people from accessing medicine that helps them. I hope they go 0-16 for the next century.
