The Ryan Lindley experiment at quarterback is over. John Skelton will start for the Arizona Cardinals in Week 14 at Seattle.
Despite the struggles of Lindley, 10-of31 with a interception, the Cardinals never considered allowing Skelton to play in last weeks loss to the New York Jets. During that game the Jets replaced a struggling Mark Sanchez at quarterback and won with third string Greg McElroy.
Skelton has played in six games this season and has a 54.7% completion percentage. During his time playing Skelton has 1,058 yards passing (5.91 per pass) to go with 2 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. Skelton has been sacked 14 times. While Lindley did not make the list, its hard to expect too much from Skelton as he ranks last in ESPN’s Total QBR stat. (Yes. behind Sanchez and Brandon Weeden)
After starting the season a surprising 4-0 the Cardinals have lost their last 8 games. Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald said “You gotta laugh to keep from crying,” when talking about the teams offense following the loss to the Jets.

TEMPE, Ariz. If timing is everything, then Ken Whisenhunts machinery could use some fine-tuning. When it comes to quarterbacks, the Cardinals coachs internal clock seems a bit off.

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb told Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com that his broken ribs still aren’t completely healed.
“A lot of the (slow recovery) goes back to the injury itself,” Kolb said. “The way that my ribs are broken, they aren’t completely healed.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Arizona Cardinals have released TE Todd Heap.
Heap, 32, has been inactive for 10 straight games, despite the fact that he’s no longer dealing with issues related to a previous knee injury that he suffered. Heap apparently hasn’t been able to practice at full speed, which is why the team had held him out of game-action.
It’s hard to imagine...
Former Baltimore Ravens TE is now a former Arizona Cardinals TE as well. Reports are out today that the Cardinals are parting ways with the two-time Pro Bowler in the midst of the their downward spiral. Heap was selected in the 1st round of the 2001 NFL draft by the Baltimore Ravens, where he played until signing a two-year deal with the Cardinals just beofre the 2011 season.

TEMPE, Ariz. Maybe somebody should roll out Herman Edwards infamous postgame press conference for Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett.
You play to win the game! Hello?! You play to win the game!

Let’s face it, Arizona’s single shining moment of QB excellence was between 2005 & 2009, when Kurt Warner was under center. Before and since it has been middling at best and a disaster at worst, with the 2012 season shaping up to be a prime example of the latter.
With his team currently mired in an eight-game losing streak after starting the season 4-0, coach Ken Whisenhunt...

After being pulled late in week 13′s matchup against the capricious Arizona Cardinals after throwing his third INT and generally being ineffective, Sanchez will get yet another shot in the saddle.
