Being a backup might not be so bad.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb left the Hall of Fame game with a rib contusion after an embarrassing performance, including an 0-1 opening drive in which he only threw an interception.
At this point, it has become clear that John Skelton should be the quarterback for the 2012 season. A promotion is certainly in order.
Kolb's performance in 2011 made Skelton appear ready for the job. Posting nine touchdowns and eight interceptions, and a 3-6 record, Kolb crumbled.
Skelton put up a 5-2 record and 11 touchdowns.
If the Cardinals shift their focus so that it's solely on Skelton, it will be to their benefit. Skelton would enter the season as the clear starter, free of any controversy. Kolb proved he can't be trusted to win, putting up three times as many losses as Skelton.
A losing, injury-prone quarterback is the last thing the Cardinals need if they're serious about getting Larry Fitzgerald another super bowl appea...

Kevin Kolb has not exactly had the best luck since he was traded to the Cardinals from Philadelphia, and the tough times continued during Sunday night’s Hall of Fame Game against the Saints. Kolb, who started off the game by throwing an interception on his first pass attempt, was injured on the Cardinals’ third offensive series when he was hit by Saints defensive lineman Sedrick...

Let me preface this piece by stating that this is purely speculation on my part, but I believe that Kevin Kolb may have just pulled into second place on the depth chart at quarterback for the 2012 Arizona Cardinals.
Even though Kolb has been announced as the early number one quarterback on the roster, the opportunity for John Skelton to steal the job was always there. And even though...
Cardinals QB Kevin Kolb did himself no favors in the preseason opener against New Orleans while John Skelton took another step towards becoming the team's starting quarterback.
CANTON, Ohio (AP) -- Drew Brees didn't need much time to finish off a good weekend for the New Orleans Saints.
Brees smoothly led a touchdown drive on his only series Sunday night, and the Saints beat the Arizona Cardinals 17-10 in the Hall of Fame game, officiated by a crew with college experience.
The game was canceled last year for the first time in 45 years, a casualty...
The Arizona Cardinals and New Orleans Saints had the first NFL preseason game of the season tonight. I thought that may have been the peak of my evening. I was totally wrong. I watched Kevin Kolb get taken out of the game after a dismal performance. I saw Drew Brees and Chase Daniels put on a clinic against Arizona’s defense.
After the game, ParadigmShift35 headquarters had a...

Arizona 10 – Saints 17
Yeah, I’m totally worth it.
Drew Brees: There is a reason, (okay quite a few reasons) he just got a big fat check. Just watch the first drive of this game. After just a handful of padded practices, you’d expect a slow, vanilla offense during the first preseason game...
Week 1: @ Arizona Cardinals
Kevin Kolb finally realizes how big of a mistake it was going to Arizona as Bruce Irvin sacks him 12 times while foaming at the mouth.

For a moment, forget New Orleans' tumultuous offseason and their questionable defense.
Forget the lesser known "Skelton Mania" and Arizona's 7-2 too-little-too-late finish after opening 2011 a meager 1-6.
Forget everything up until preseason action finally commenced this past Sunday night...or could we?
After forcing and recovering a fumble on the previous drive...
