Kevin Kolb has a lot of pressure on him in Arizona, but he also has a low bar to leap over to be better than the 2010 Cardinals quarterbacks.
The former Eagle could be below average for a starting quarterback and that would be a huge upgrade for Arizona at the game’s most important position.
“It’s like night and day from last year. I don’t want to disrespect nobody, but I mean, he’s good,” Darnell Dockett said via Mike Sando of ESPN.com.
John Skelton and Max Hall might take offense, but we don’t. Arizona’s quarterbacks combined to complete 50.8% of their passes last year, with 10 touchdowns and 19 picks. Only the Panthers were close to as bad.
Kolb just needs to be decent and the team will improve. Getting a big stamp of approval from a defensive leader can’t hurt.
“He’s the leader, goes out there and gets the job done,” Dockett said.
