Kevin Kolb looks unlikely to face Rams

Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb fumbles after getting hit by Jarret Johnson of the Ravens in Baltimore Reuters

Be careful what you wish for, Cardinals fans.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Kevin Kolb is unlikely to play against the Rams Sunday because of his turf toe.  Even if that makes him sound like a “weenie.”

That means that John Skelton is likely to get the start for the one-win Cardinals.  Kolb won’t practice again Thursday.

Arizona fans have been clamoring for Skelton to get a chance because Kolb has struggled.  We suspect the team’s quarterback play is not going to improve with Skelton, although at least the matchup is favorable at home against St. Louis.

    It’s very simple. Pay Kurt Warner 10$ Mil to come back and they will make the playoffs and beyond.

    So, Feeley v. Skelton? Just the matchup Joe Buck was waiting to come back for

    ARZ’s chances of winning just increased.

    Only Gus Johnson could make a game like this one sound the slightest bit entertaining.

    I hate the Eagles.

  6. trbowman says: Nov 3, 2011 11:57 AM

    I have no idea why so many Cards fans like Skelton.

    Really wish it was Bartel getting the call.

    I said this when the trade originally happened with the Eagles…”Thanks you, Philly, for sending this guy to the Niners division and taking away so much from a rival.” My Niners instantly got better for the next few years as soon as the Cards decided to make that horrible trade

    Kolb is a new scapegoat. He’s not good, but his oline is terrible and they have a horrific D.

    I’m glad the Niners didn’t give a bunch of high draft picks and a promising young corner to go 1-6 or is that 1-7. It’s the NFC West, they still have a chance…keep saying it. Niners clinch by Thanksgiving or the game after.

    The backup quarterback is always popular. Guarantee, after Skelton plays, Cards fans will be down on their knees praying for Kolb to return.

    Too bad for the Rams.

    Not much different from what happened last year. Anderson started and stunk. Then they benched him for Max Hall who was too fragile to play. Then Skelton got to play some.

    I bet Derek Anderson feels at least a little vindicated after seeing no QB having any success behind this horrific oline

    Just like Orton was the scapegoat in Denver but at least the Cards fans don’t have to deal with you-know-who!

    Larry Fitzgerald must be regretting that big contract extension he signed. His numbers have dropped off considerably since Kurt Warner retired.

    If he had a decent QB, he’d be putting up numbers similar to Calvin Johnson. It’s a shame to see his talent wasted.

    What’s wrong with Arizona fans? The QB is NOT your issue…please look at your o-line! If your QB is running for his life…makes it kind of hard to throw passes….No matter how good their foot work is!!!

  16. yevrag3535 says: Nov 3, 2011 12:35 PM

    Cut him, he’s a bust…..

  17. whoknowsnothing says: Nov 3, 2011 12:47 PM

    Actually Arizona fans have been clamoring for an offensive line that will protect it’s quarterback.

  18. iced107 says: Nov 3, 2011 12:50 PM

    Not that their offense was going to be difficult to stop, but it just got easier…Rams ‘D is rejoicing against that o-line

  19. dukemarc says: Nov 3, 2011 1:17 PM

    So you’re saying the Cards have a chance?

  20. pwillis52 says: Nov 3, 2011 1:40 PM

    KK is complete trash…

    … anyone like to provide stats that prove otherwise?

  21. dwoofer says: Nov 3, 2011 2:16 PM

    One big difference in the two QB’s is that Kolb tries to dance away from a blitz, while Skelton, being a big guy who’s real tough to bring down, just stands in the pocket. He even runs out and blocks people on some plays. Tough guy. You won’t see running-for-your-life plays on Sunday.

  22. educatedopinion2073 says: Nov 3, 2011 2:58 PM

    Cards should have gone after a proven winner even if he is a bit of a head case. They should trade Kolb back to Philly for Vince Young, and see how many more draft picks they can waste.

  23. schmitty2 says: Nov 3, 2011 3:11 PM

    Spags will call blitz on every down

  24. oldbyrd says: Nov 3, 2011 3:11 PM

    WELL WHO EVER STARTS, HE WILL PROBABLY HAVE THE MISFORTUNE OF FACING….COLE AND BABIN OF THE EAGLES NEXT WEEK……..OUCH

  25. rodericksilva says: Nov 4, 2011 1:39 AM

    Don’t blame Philly. He played well here. Look at your own team and its deficiencies.

    by the way… anyone need Kafka?
