The Penalty Flag:
Ever since the departure of future hall of fame quarterback, Kurt Warner in 2009, the Arizona Cardinals have been in search of a new signal caller. First it was suppose to be Matt Leinart but everyone knows how that one turned out. In 2010 time was split between Derek Anderson, John Skelton and Max Hall.
BEST OF MAXIM
Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Wisenhunt confirmed that both Kevin Kolb and John Skelton have been splitting the first team reps through the first couple of weeks of OTA’s.
“I don’t think about that when you’re on the field,” he said. “I don’t look at a player and think what’s he’s making or what you did to get him here. I look at them based on what...
Despite the contrary, John Skelton should be the least of Kevin Kolb’s worries in training camp this year.
Because if Skelton passes him on the Cardinals’ depth chart, it’ll already be too late for Kolb to save his career in the desert.
The 27-year-old Kolb is entering a make-or-break year in Arizona. The Cardinals signed him to a six-year, $65 million contract after acquiring...
The Cardinals made a big investment to get Kevin Kolb last offseason, giving him 63 million over 5 years with 21 million guaranteed and trading away a 2nd round pick and a starting cornerback, Dominique Rodgers Cromartie, to get him.

But how do his numbers compare to those of Jerry Rice, the wide receiver that is considered the best to...
Newly signed Quentin Groves gives the Cardinals yet another option at outside linebacker and RB Ryan Williams is starting to participate in individual drills.
WHAT IF MIKE LEACH wasn’t a football coach but instead a commissioner – what if he was in charge of making changes to college football’s postseason. Leach would institute a playoff but it wouldn’t be of the plus-one, 4-team or even 8-team variety. A 16-team playoff? A 32-team playoff? Nope. Think bigger.

Finally, Kevin Kolb gets to spend a summer in Arizona.
Forget the discomfort of the triple-digit surroundings. The quarterback is getting his first offseason workouts with the Cardinals, and he and the team hope this means a smoother, less pressurized performance in the coming season.
Kolb acknowledges that he puts added pressure on himself to live up to the five-year, $63 million...
