Kevin Kolb snubs John Skelton on high five after Kolb injury (Video)

Kevin Kolb has not exactly had the best luck since he was traded to the Cardinals from Philadelphia, and the tough times continued during Sunday night’s Hall of Fame Game against the Saints. Kolb, who started off the game by throwing an interception on his first pass attempt, was injured on the Cardinals’ third offensive series when he was hit by Saints defensive lineman Sedrick...

Arizona Cardinals: Kevin Kolb is a Bust

Being a backup might not be so bad. Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb left the Hall of Fame game with a rib contusion after an embarrassing performance, including an 0-1 opening drive in which he only threw an interception. At this point, it has become clear that John Skelton should be the quarterback for the 2012 season.  A promotion is certainly in order. Kolb's...

Chiefs LT Willie Roaf goes into Hall of Fame

CANTON, Ohio (AP) -- Willie Roaf was tough to get around, an extraordinary blocker at tackle. He was impossible to ignore for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Let me preface this piece by stating that this is purely speculation on my part, but I believe that Kevin Kolb may have just pulled into second place on the depth chart at quarterback for the 2012 Arizona Cardinals. Even though Kolb has been announced as the early number one quarterback on the roster, the opportunity for John Skelton to steal the job was always there. And even though...

Kevin Kolb injury opens door for super-clutch John Skelton

Don't rush to judge Cardinals' quarterbacks

You know whats sillier than NFL preseason games? A good chunk of the people who cover them. Lets review.

Jack Butler went from low profile into HOF

Jack Butler didn't play football in high school. He picked up the game in college at St. Bonaventure and entered the NFL as an undrafted player in 1951, just another guy filling out the Pittsburgh Steelers' roster. He's not just another player anymore. Butler was the second of six players inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday night. Running back Curtis...

Nicks says Bucs ready to shock some teams

TAMPA, Fla. If the Tampa Bay Bucs are going to put up a good front this season, Carl Nicks is just the man to help them do it. The All-Pro left offensive guard, regarded as one of the leagues best with the New Orleans Saints, has the goods to take a solid Bucs offensive line to the next level.
