Found November 21, 2011 on Cardinals Locker:
The Cardinals were so awful offensively that they only had possession of the ball for 15:44 in this game!  John Skelton was absolutely pathetic in this game as he completed only 6 of 19 passes for 99 yards with 0 TD passes and 3 INTs.  Richard Bartel replaced him and he looked much better in completing 8 of 16 passes for 64 yards with 1 TD pass and 0 INTs.  He also carried the ball 1 time for 9 yards.  Chester Taylor led the way for the Cardinals on the ground in this game with 34 yards rushing on 1 carry.  Beanie Wells pitched in with 33 yards rushing on 8 carries (4.1 ypc) in this game.  WRs Andre Roberts (3 rec, 51 yards), Early Doucet (6 rec, 50 yards) and Larry Fitzgerald (3 rec, 41 yards, TD) led the way in the passing game for the Cardinals yesterday.  The Cardinals finished up with 80 yards rushing on 11 carries (7.3 ypc) and they also completed 14 of 35 passes (40%) for 149 yards in this game. The defense was awful for the Cardinals yesterday.  LB Paris Lenon (9 tackles), s...

Cardinals' Skelton not ready for the spotlight

Monday would be a really good day for Kevin Kolb's foot to fully heal. The St. Louis Rams are on deck and the Cardinals 2-week-old quarterback controversy is over unless you're talking about the backup spot.

Video: Diagnosing the Cardinals' awful loss to the 49ers

The Arizona Cardinals need one of their QBs to step up!

QB has turned into a Black Hole once again for the Cardinals in 2011.  The Cardinals traded for 27-year old Kevin Kolb after the lockout was lifted and he has not been the answer so far this year.  Kolb has played in 7 games for the Cardinals so far this year and he has completed 129 of 227 passes (56.8%) for 1,706 yards with 8 TD passes and 8 INTs (77.8 QB Rating).  Kolb has...

Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt plans to stick with John Skelton

Cards' Kolb inactive again; Skelton starts at QB

Kevin Kolb is inactive for the Arizona Cardinals for the third straight game with a right foot injury, and he's being replaced at quarterback by John Skelton against the San Francisco 49ers.

So much for that quarterback controversy in Arizona

Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt didn’t want to blame John Skelton compleltely for the team’s decisive loss to the 49ers on Sunday. But he did so anyway. “We didn’t play well enough offensively, especially at the quarterback position, to give us a chance against a good football team,” Whisenhunt said via the Arizona Republic. “If we…
