Kevin Kolb hasn’t been that good. I gave him the benefit of the doubt when he signed his big contract with the Cardinals, but when you are paid like a Franchise QB you have to play like one and he hasn’t.

John Skelton is likely to beat out Kevin Kolb for the Arizona Cardinals’ starting quarterback job, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Kolb, who signed a five-year, $63 million contract when he was traded from the Eagles last offseason, will still start the team’s next preseason game on Friday against the Raiders. But Schefter reports that “people within the organization” expect Skelton to take the job.
