The Cardinals are planning to start John Skelton at quarterback in their opener, according to Adam Caplan of TheSidelineView.com.
The former fifth-rounder from Fordham has looked steadier than expensive mistake Kevin Kolb. After trading a second-round pick and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to Philadelphia, the Cards gave Kolb a six-year, $65 million deal.
Of course, Skelton looking better is fairly relative, as neither Cardinals quarterback has looked like much this preseason.
They’re going to have trouble protecting either one, so maybe winning this job isn’t the prize it’s cracked up to be.
