If the Cardinals were looking for clarity in their quarterback situation on Thursday night against the Titans, they didn’t get it.
Thanks to poor play from the offensive line, John Skelton didn’t get many chances to run the offense but he threw an interception when he did. Kevin Kolb got better protection and produced more offense, but he threw two bad picks that linger as the main takeaways from his outing. That led to a question for coach Ken Whisenhunt about whether the outlook at quarterback was murkier after the game.
“It sure seems that way,” Whisenhunt said, via Darren Urban of the team’s website.
Whisenhunt said that he wouldn’t make a complete evaluation on either man’s play until he had a chance to look at the tape, but he’s unlikely to find much to create confidence in either quarterback. Each quarterback has had ample opportunities to win the job at this point and neither one has stepped forward to grab control of the job.
That’s why there will continue to be chatter about the Cardinals looking for another option under center in the coming days. The old saying goes that when you have two quarterbacks, you don’t actually have any. Unless Arizona lands an answer at the position, that saying may never be more true than it is in Arizona this season.
