The Cardinals scored only ten points in Seattle last week, which is the same total they put up in 2010 when Max Hall and Derek Anderson were roaming the NFC West.
The one touchdown came on a low-percentage throw that Larry Fitzgerald pulled off. The second half was a disaster. Kevin Kolb’s development in Arizona has become a topic of conversation.
“You don’t want to take a step back,” Kolb said via AZCardinals.com. “That game I probably took a step back.”
Ken Whisenhunt admitted the performance was uneven. Kolb said watching film on the game “was as bad as we thought it would be.”
Brock Huard of 710AM in Seattle broke down Kolb’s game-sealing interception this week in a fun video segment. In it, Huard said he was very surprised Kolb made such a basic mistake in not identifying the right matchup.
While Kolb is a fifth-year player, he hasn’t started that many games. There are bound to be bumps in the road this season.
For the money he’s getting, though, he needs to show an ability to move forward quickly after taking a step back.
