Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt doesn’t just want a quick fix at quarterback when the lockout ends. He’d love to acquire a player to truly build around.
“If you had a chance to get a young quarterback you think could develop into a great player for you for a decade, as opposed to a veteran player you think could come in and help you right now, you’ve got to go with your evaluation and the player you have rated higher,” Whisenhunt said on Sirius radio with Adam Schein and Rich Gannon, via AZCardinals.com.
“Let’s say your number one [-rated] player is a player you think can help that position for a long time to come, you’ve got to take that shot. It’s hard to find a guy to play that position in this league,” Whisenhunt said.
Folks could read into that statement a pro-Kevin Kolb sentiment, since Kolb sounds more like a long-term bet than Kyle Orton.
We tend to think that Whisenhunt wouldn’t give away much of anything in a national interview, and we’re all just bored by the lockout.
