So how will coach Ken Whisenhunt help the Cardinals deal with the fact that they’re becoming one of the best teams in the NFL?
By telling them that they’re not one of the best teams in the NFL.
During a Friday interview on Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network, Whisenhunt said the Cardinals aren’t a frontrunner, yet.
The standings, which contain only three 3-0 teams and the Cardinals are one of them, would say otherwise.
Regardless of whether the Cardinals truly are — or aren’t — among the NFL elite, they have a dilemma looming, once Week One starting quarterback John Skelton fully recovers from a sprained ankle. Whisenhunt says Skelton isn’t 100 percent yet, and Whisenhunt said that, once both Skelton and Kevin Kolb are at that level of health, the Cardinals will have a tough decision to make.
Whisenhunt also addressed the possibility of using both in the same game, like the team did five years ago with Matt Leinart and Kurt Warner. To find out what Whisenhunt said, you’ll have to watch the video.
That’s not a deliberate tease; I just don’t remember what he said.
