Found July 30, 2012 on Kissing Suzy Kolber:
In 2011, the Buzzsaw finished 8-8. On the surface, that’s not a particularly impressive record, though it becomes somewhat more so when you realize that John Skelton started nearly half of their games. Arizona handed San Francisco one of its three regular season losses. The Cards also lost to the Vikings by 24 points. So, pretty mixed bag altogether. The team won seven of its final nine, which is nice, but also probably one of those misleading surges that teams with nothing to play for tend to have late in seasons, only to revert to being awful the next year after cruelly building hope for fans. In the off-season, the team was an also-ran in the Peyton Manning free agency sweepstakes. They’ll stick it out for the time being with Kevin Kolb, whose most notable attribute is that fans find him an enjoyable target for unyielding scorn.

I’ll Pass On: Beanie Wells

I thought you were my boy Juan… 2011 Recap:  Wells came into the season injured (shocking) and could never really sustain any type of consistency from a fantasy perspective.
