Found August 22, 2012 on Helmet2Helmet:
And the hits just keep on comin' for oft-criticized Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb. When he's not being booed by the hometown fans or ripped by the opposition, the 28-year-old even hears it from a former legend. Speaking to the Arizona Republic, ex-Cardinals QB Kurt Warner criticized Kolb for a lack of improvement, noting he's playing too fast and hesitant to 'pull the trigger.' "I see the same thing I saw last year," Warner said. "I see a guy who hasn't been able to grasp the system enough to slow the game down, or he doesn't have confidence in what he's seeing. Maybe he understands what the offense is asking him to do, but the game is going too fast, and he's not pulling the trigger." Warner has watched all the necessary film, and, while he tries to relate to Kolb's struggles, doesn't understand what's preventing him from taking a leap. "I've been in games when it's hard to get the ...

Warner: Kevin Kolb “not letting the ball go”

Kurt Warner was very successful as starting quarterback of the Arizona Cardinals from 2005 to 2009. Kevin Kolb, the man brought in from Philadelphia to be the next franchise quarterback, has not fared as well. The comparison is not even close. The Oakland Raiders’ Tommy Kelly wasn’t shy about expressing his views on Kevin Kolb earlier this week. Today, Warner sounded off regarding...

John Skelton to start and play into 3rd quarter this week for Cardinals

Heading into their 4th preseason game, the Cardinals still have not announced a starting quarterback. However, they have announced that John Skelton will start and play into the 3rd quarter this week. The Cardinals played in the Hall of Fame game to start the Preseason so they have 5 Preseason games instead of 4, so this 4th preseason game will essentially be used like their 3rd...

Hot Arizona Cardinals Cheerleaders (Gallery)

Hot Arizona Cardinals Cheerleaders.  Sadly today goes to the Arizona Cardinals and I only say that because it was suppose to be the New York Giants today, but I just found out that they don't have a cheer leading team.   Seriously?  Didn't know that was possible.  Just an absolute disgrace to the NFL. Clearly that means we are done with the NFC East and onto the NFC...

Cardinals O-line suffers painful loss in Brown

TEMPE, Ariz. -- A look of disgust crossed Lyle Sendleins face as he imagined the impending fan reaction to Levi Browns triceps injury Friday night against the Oakland Raiders. It makes me sick thinking about what people are going to say, the Cardinals center said. People have no idea how much he does for us. Cardinals fans are about to get a tangible measure of Browns value to...

Cardinals’ Levi Brown could be done for the year

The Cardinals allowed the 2nd most sacks in the league last year, allowing 54, and now they have been dealt a huge blow to their offensive line as Levi Brown could be out for the year after tearing his triceps. Brown has been described as “right on the margin” to return this season after undergoing surgery and if the Cardinals are out of the playoff race late in the season, very...

Time running out in Cardinals' position battles

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Almost two years ago to the day, Matt Leinart went to Tennessee as the Cardinals starting quarterback and returned as its backup. Kevin Kolb might already have lost his starters role to John Skelton, but it should become obvious after Thursdays game in Nashville, even if coach Ken Whisenhunt doesnt make the announcement for another week. In that previous quarterback...

Ken Wisenhunt not concerned about Beanie Wells’ knee

AP Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Wisenhunt made it clear that he’s not concerned at all about the knee of running back Beanie Wells heading into this week’s preseason game. “I’m excited to see him in a game,” Whisenhunt said per AZCardinals.com. “There’s no concern with him at all with his health.” Wells is a very good back and if he can stay healthy along with...

Cardinals break camp, still no starting QB

By BOB BAUM AP Sports Writer FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- The Arizona Cardinals have wrapped up their training camp in Flagstaff, still looking for a starting quarterback with just two preseason games remaining. The team worked out for a little more than two hours on Tuesday, then headed down I-17 to Phoenix. They leave Wednesday for Tennessee and a preseason game against the Titans on...

Cards’ Brown Could Miss Season with Torn Tricep

  While Michael Vick may get all of the press, the preseason has been unkind to more than just star quarterbacks. The Arizona Cardinals also received a huge blow when news emerged that starting left tackle and former Penn Stater Levi Brown tore his tricep and could be out for all of 2012. The former All-Big-Ten lineman underwent surgery to repair a torn right triceps tendon...

Fantasy Flatliners: Arizona Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals are just a big hot mess when it comes to fantasy football. Despite having a Pro Bowl wide receiver in Larry Fitzgerald, it’s time to cut bait on the Cardinals and avoid them all with Fitzy being the lone exception. The quarterback situation is a quagmire. Kevin Kolb has the big contract and came in the big trade for cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie two...

Mariani breaks left leg on punt return

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee returner Marc Mariani has broken his left leg at the end of a punt return in the first quarter against the Arizona Cardinals. Replay showed his leg snapping near the calf as he went to the ground at the end of 14-yard return with 9:40 left in the first quarter Thursday night. He remained on the ground for several minutes as a team doctor put an...

Cards back at square one in QB competition

Thursdays game in Tennessee was supposed to be a coronation for Cardinals quarterback John Skelton. He had played less poorly than Kevin Kolb through three preseason games, earning him the lesser-of-two-evils tag in this infamous and inglorious race for the starting role. But the sad reality of Arizonas quarterback competition is that with one touchdown drive, you can regain the...
