The lowest moment in the 2010 49ers season undeniably came when San Francisco fans started chanting for David Carr to enter a game.
Alex Smith has helped make that a distant memory, but there is a similarly depressing movement happening in Arizona right now.
John Skelton is suddenly a popular guy.
Skelton told Darren Urban of the team’s official website that it’s “hard to ignore” the fact fans have been clamoring for Skelton to play over Kevin Kolb. With Kolb battling a toe injury this week, the home faithful may get their wish.
Cardinals fans clearly have short memories. Skelton was rough around the edges to put it mildly last year, although he had some decent moments for a rookie.
Ken Whisenhunt has to really hope Kolb plays this week. Kolb is obviously going to start every game this year when healthy and a matchup against the Rams provides Arizona with a great chance to get a win.
If Skelton does start and pulls off the victory, he’s only going to get more popular.
