Coach Ken Whisenhunt said before the Cardinals' second preseason game Friday night in Kansas City that he wanted to see progress.
Well, Kevin Kolb didn't get hurt. Does that qualify as progress?
It was tough to find other signs. Despite the return of safety Adrian Wilson and defensive tackle Darnell Dockett to the lineup, the Cardinals defense tackled poorly for a second straight week and failed to get off blocks.
The Chiefs rolled up 225 yards of offense in the first half and scored touchdowns on their first two possessions before starting quarterback Matt Cassel and most of the starters took a seat.
The Cardinals offense crossed midfield just once with starter John Skelton or Kolb at the helm. Skelton completed 3 of 7 passes for 35 yards and tossed an ugly interception. Kolb was just 1 for 5 (receiver DeMarco Sampson should have had one but dropped it) and was on the run again due to shaky protection.
Yeah. This was pretty much a wire-to-wire wrist-slitter.

I only list Rhodes because the Cardinals don’t have another even remotely good candidate for the tag. Safeties have been franchised 4 times in the last 2 seasons because of how cheap the safety franchise tag is (just 6.2 million in 2012). However, Rhodes isn’t the level of Michael Huff, Tyvon Branch, Dashon Goldson, and Michael Griffin, all of whom have been franchised...
Every player in the Cardinals locker room knows Ray Hortons pedigree. They know he spent seven seasons under famed Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau mastering one of the NFLs most successful and most enduring schemes.
But as Horton installed a similarly modeled defense last season in his first year as the Cards coordinator, he refrained from wearing that badge...
The good news for quarterback Kevin Kolb and the Arizona Cardinals is that he finished the game without getting injured. The bad news is that he still doesn’t look like a franchise quarterback.
So far this preseason Kolb has only complete 2 of 9 passes for 25 yards with no touchdowns and one interception. That gives him a quarterback rating of 0.0.
The good news for...

Kevin Kolb is making this quarterback situation in Arizona very easy to resolve. The way he has played in the first two preseason games for the Arizona Cardinals, it's John Skelton's job to lose. Even Ryan Lindley could move into the no. 2 quarterback spot on the depth chart by the time the season is over.
Kolb went 1-for-5 for 21 yards to make his total preseason numbers...
PULLMAN--WSU responded from their most sluggish practice of fall camp with an energetic two-hour session on Friday. And Mike Leach isn't ready to end the starting QB question. Jeff Tuel and Connor Halliday split reps with the first-team offense, each showing off respective strengths on a day owned by the O. The day even featured one of the quarterbacks getting into a skirmish...
There generally aren’t many things you can learn from the first NFL exhibition game of the year. But in Kansas City, there are three questions I want answered Friday night when the Chiefs host the Arizona Cardinals at Arrowhead Stadium.
MIKE LEACH DOESN’T discuss or give out information on injuries. But WSU looks to have suffered a fall camp blow on the offensive line. Two sources close to the situation tell CF.C that an o-tackle listed as a starter on the most recent depth chart looks to be lost for the season.
With their first preseason game under their belts, the Kansas City Chiefs outlasted the Arizona Cardinals 27-17, so who stood out and what does this win mean?
