Tommy Kelly on Kevin Kolb: “That boy’s scared”


Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb found it difficult to do much on Friday night to make his case for the starting job.  After all, it’s hard to throw when being constantly harassed by the Raiders defense.

In the end, Kolb had as many sacks as completions:  three.

After a crunching collision between multiple Raiders and Kolb behind the line of scrimmage early in the second quarter, defensive lineman Tommy Kelly said as he made it to the sideline, “That boy’s scared,” according to the Raiders TV broadcast being streamed through’s Preseason Live package.

Kolb completed three of six passes for 22 yards, leading the Cardinals on a seven-play, 41-yard touchdown drive.  Kolb’s other scoring drive came via a field goal scored after an interception return by Kerry Rhodes put the ball deep in Oakland territory.  Arizona lost nine yards in three plays before the kick.

It seems like it’s only a matter of time before Kolb loses the starting job.

    KC made the cardinals look like a high school team.. scoring with ease and racking up 7 or so sacks.

    Raiders play them and get blown out 24-8… then they talk crap about the guys who just beat their butts… typical Raiders

    Kolb might be scared… but so is the whole raiders squad.

    Last in the division… again.

    RG3 > Kurt Warner… come at me BROther

  3. RUAHORNH8R says: Aug 17, 2012 11:54 PM

    Sad thing is , If he were traded back to philly he would probably thrive!
    Az is a mess, Kurt Warner was only thing good that organization has seen in years, why fitz signed with th long term is beyond me??
    He should be catching strikes by Ponder! 2012 softmore of the year!

    “That boy sucks”.

  5. crippled4life says: Aug 17, 2012 11:56 PM

    Greg Knapp’s system sucks.

  6. rashardmendenballs says: Aug 17, 2012 11:57 PM

    Kolb is a dumpster fire; yeah i know the OL sucks but you can’t just hang on to the ball and stare down your target. Yes he will be holding a clipboard and will make over 10 million dollars this year for the cards (roster bonus + base salary), yeah i know what you are thinking…sick.

    The VERY poor mans version of Ben Roethlisberger, John Skelton does not look phased while under pressure in the pocket. This guy will start the season. Too bad that the cards Defense will need to carry the team for the first 6 or 8 games this season.

    Who wouldn’t be scared behind that sieve of an O-Line?

  9. randyschwimmer7 says: Aug 18, 2012 12:42 AM

    I bet Petting Manning is counting his lucky stars he didn’t pick the Cards. that offensive line is an absolute DISASTER

  10. Grinds My Gear says: Aug 18, 2012 12:47 AM

    I wasn’t sure what sucked more. Kolb or Knapp. Can anyone imagine the amount of suck if Kolb played for Knapp? That’s a mind blowing amount of suck.

  11. skinsfan91 says: Aug 18, 2012 1:03 AM

    softmore? That’s softmoric spelling.

  12. 950003cups says: Aug 18, 2012 1:07 AM

    Kolb has skills. He would have been the starting QB in Philly if Vick wasn’t ready.

  13. aaroncurryisbust says: Aug 18, 2012 1:22 AM

    Remember when people were criticizing the Seahawks for not trading for Kolb?

  14. 92and94and51and56 says: Aug 18, 2012 1:27 AM

    And there are reports of a post-game shooting in the parking lot. Raiders fans still don’t know how to lose gracefully.

  15. tdk24 says: Aug 18, 2012 1:41 AM

    That game was wacky, but far from a blowout dude.

  16. axespray says: Aug 18, 2012 1:52 AM

    so basically every QB from the 07 draft is garbage

  17. bizurk says: Aug 18, 2012 2:01 AM

    At a certain point, doesn’t Andy Reid have to get credit for getting the most out of his QB’s? DMac, Kolb and Feely all managed to look much better in Green than they did anywhere else. Reid hoodwinked WAS, AZ and MIA in those deals…. of course, he didn’t get more than a ham sandwich for Asante

  18. robgilman says: Aug 18, 2012 2:04 AM

    TJ Yates a third string quarterback took the Texans to the playoffs last year with Greg Knapps system. Does it suck or are guys not executing?

  19. larondontlikeugly says: Aug 18, 2012 2:07 AM

    Kolb gets up slow every time he is knocked down, and it’s not because he’s hurt– It’s because he doesn’t want to play football anymore. You can see it on his swollen, droopy face.

  20. danfoutsbeard619 says: Aug 18, 2012 2:38 AM

    Of course hes scared. That O-line cant block anyone, hes been running for his life every preseason game

  21. latchbeam says: Aug 18, 2012 2:52 AM

    That boy’s scared… scared enough to burn you for 2 consecutive scoring drives. The Raiders even talk smack when they are getting beaten down!?

  22. bluefan204 says: Aug 18, 2012 4:23 AM

    Now we know that Fitz is only interested in money. He doesn’t care about winning. Why else would he stay there to finish his career?

  23. bennyb82 says: Aug 18, 2012 7:00 AM

    Maybe they should start using Kolb in the wildcat…maybe that will get his mind right.

  24. staffordsyear says: Aug 18, 2012 7:14 AM

    I”ll admit last year i was on kolbs side and said he needs some time and this and that but its not.lookin good for him and it.seems like a bad trade at this point,good luck on that qb situation cards fans.

  25. 7to10for6allday says: Aug 18, 2012 7:16 AM

    As a Philly fan, I like kolb. I’ve met with him, we chatted, real nice guy. Unfortunately for the cards, they got fleeced by the eagles. Thanks for drc and Kendricks. Seems like a fair deal. Lol

    another shooting involving raider fans…

  28. CKL says: Aug 18, 2012 7:39 AM

    Wow. A player saying another player is scared is just about the worst thing that can be said by one guy about another. I think I’d rather someone said I was terrible than that that I played scared.

    What an asinine post.

    Raiders lost 31-27. Not really a blow out. Unless you consider winning by four in the preseason “a blow out”

    Saying someone is “scared” is different than “talking crap about them”

    Raiders weren’t last in the division last year, it was KC, so them being last “again” can’t happen.

    But, hey, don’t let facts get in the way of making ridiculous statements.

    Great trade by the Cardinals!

  31. chb74 says: Aug 18, 2012 8:43 AM

    Hulkhogan, you might want to stop calling everyone “brother.” No one here has the misfortune to share any DNA with you. You can deduce that based on the fact that most here are actually literate and sane.

  32. bgoochy says: Aug 18, 2012 8:43 AM

    Vote up to ban the Hulk Hogan gimmick.

  33. villa41 says: Aug 18, 2012 9:14 AM

    Blow out? The Raiders first team units (with the exception of special teams) outplayed the Cards or did you not see that the Raiders outgained Arizona 184 to 52 in the first half? After the first drive Oakland’s D completely shut down Arizona.

    It’s the preseason and like most teams Oakland has things to work. Green Bay lost something like 34 to 10 to Cleveland of all teams. Should GB be worried?

    Red zone offense needs to improve and the special teams have to play better. The Raiders are moving the ball up and down the field and playing good defense, though. More often than not, that will you more than your fair share of games.

  34. raiderlyfe510 says: Aug 18, 2012 9:28 AM

    This offense looks like it did before Hue Jackson arrived. Its sloppy with pold execution.

    Carson Palmer can not run the West Coast Offense. He doesn’t trust what he sees in this offense so the ball comes out late making him look inaccurate and turnover-prone.

    2008 Jamarcus Russell in Greg Knapp’s offense is going to look a lot better than 2012 Carson Palmer in Knapp’s offense. If you blitz Palmer and take away his check down receiver he’s done.

  35. attyken says: Aug 18, 2012 9:40 AM

    Hi Ken…it’s Andy

    I have this great QB named Foles. Hell of an arm and a real player. I’m sorry Kolb didn’t work out but I want to make it up to you. Two ones and Fitz should get it done.

    The score was 31-27. Learn how to count.

  37. getadealdonealready says: Aug 18, 2012 10:01 AM

    @aaroncurryisbust no, but I do remember when they signed T-Joke as their QB of the future and said he never got a fair shot in MN, then I remember when they way overpaid for another career backup out of Green Bay. Don’t feel left out there will be plenty of pointing and laughing at your squad yet to come!

  38. jkaflagg says: Aug 18, 2012 4:15 PM

    Well, when a guy like Tommy Kelly ( with all that playoff experience) calls you out, you must be pretty bad…..Kelly was such a dog in college that he went undrafted despite skills and ability that should have gotten him selected in the early rounds; and while he’s shown occasional flashes of talent in Oakland, he’s mostly known for scoring a monster contract from Al Davis…..
    ….Kolb needs to pick up his game, but he should not worry about anything Kelly has to say…..
