Arizona Cardinals quarterback John Skelton was lifted in favor of Ryan Lindley in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons. The move was surprising considering the Cardinals led 13-3 at the time. However, Skelton struggled by going 2-for-7 passing for only six yards. Arizona settled on a field goal after Skelton missed a wide open Larry Fitzgerald for a potential touchdown. The Cardinals went three-and-out on their next three possessions. Lindley was not successful early on as he lost a fumble that was returned for a touchdown that made it 13-10. Atlanta later tied the game with a field goal.

  • Ken Whisenhunt should be fired, along with Russ Grimm. They should be made to help Beanie Wells, Bobby Massie, Levi Brown, Kevin Kolb, John Skelton,pack their bags and get the hell out of town. Whisenhunt has no clue. Week after week we fans hear the same line from him at the post game interview,"It's tough to win in this league". To replace Skelton (which should have been done a long time ago) with Lindley who did not get the reps with the first team offense borders on insanity!
