There is, ostensibly, a quarterback battle unfolding on the Arizona Cardinals roster. Unfortunately, John Skelton, who started Thursday night against the Tennessee Titans, and Kevin Kolb are mostly in a race to the bottom. Their offensive line is not helping the cause at all. Both Kolb and Skelton were sacked on their first play of the game.
Kevin Kolb is not happy, not happy at all.
Skelton finished his night with a 4-for-10 effort with 41 yards and an interception. Kolb, with two minutes to play in the second quarter also has an interception to go with his 4-for-7 effort and 15 passing yards.
Arizona has a myriad of problems on offense, and the preseson caveat is hardly enough to inspire much relief. Earlier on Thursday, ESPN's Adam Schefter noted that the Cardinals could be in the market for a veteran quarterback to help them. Another team's castoff may be an improvement, but whoever it is will still have to play behind an offensive line that might as well not be there.
