For those waiting for an official starting quarterback announcement, it isn’t coming today. The situation is this: Derek Anderson has yet to pass all his concussion tests and thus has not been cleared to practice. He will be evaluated again Wednesday. Because of that, John Skelton said he and Richard Bartel will compete for the vacant starting job (and yes, I’d think Skelton would get it, simply because he has been around all season). Even if Anderson was healthy, I’m not 100 percent sure he would still be in the mix for now, but since he is hurt, it’s impossible to tell where he stands.
I know Skelton feels confident. This morning, before he took part in the Cards’ annual “Teddy Bear Express” at St. Joseph’s Hospital (story in a bit), he said his parents were flying in for Sunday’s game. You don’t do that to watch your son sit on the bench.
