No QB announcement yet (and Fitz talks Uggs)

Posted by Darren Urban on September 12, 2012 – 3:13 pm

Nothing official yet on the Cardinals’ starting quarterback situation Wednesday. Coach Ken Whisenhunt said again that there is still a couple of days left for John Skelton’s ankle to get better. Skelton did not practice Wednesday, and quarterback Kevin Kolb talked about how good it was to work with the “ones” during the workout. Asked about Michael Bidwill’s radio comment that Kolb would start, Whisenhunt reiterated “we still have some days.”

Leave it to Larry Fitzgerald to provide some perspective. “This is nothing new for us,” Fitzgerald said. “This is like regular training camp, Kevin, John, we’re used to the competition. We are conditioned for this. We’re going to play this to our advantage.”

Fitzgerald was in that kind of mood. Talking about Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, he cracked “I bought a pair of Uggs just to try to be like him.”

More Fitz on Brady: “He’s a model of consistency. He’s just unbelievable, passer rating, touchdowns-to-interceptions, the guy does it every single year. Not to mention he has the most beautiful wife in the world. So he’s every man’s dream … er, every woman’s dream, I mean.”

    Ah, to have a QB like Tom Brady…Strictly in terms of what he does on the field, I find Tom much hotter than his wife these days. That’s what the Cardinals QB situation has done to me.

    Honestly, I don’t know if it matters who plays QB this week. This game is a loss. Period. The only question is by how much and at what point Brady will be watching comfortably from the sidelines. It could get ugly. Ain’t no way we’re hanging with the Patriots in Foxboro.

    I hope it’s not like the so-called “competition” between William Powell, Beanie W. and Ryan W.

    I will take the 13.5 points a go to the Bank after the game, New England beat a sorry Tennesee team with Jake Locker who is a bust, Also they have Balitimore next week, this is what we call a trap game for all the suckers betting New England.

    Still haven’t heard about our two tackles and how they were rated last week.

    Re: your comment on Tom Brady,
    First of all, keep your desires to yourself. Moving on:

    You don’t find QBs like Brady in the 6th round, or just get lucky. Hate to say, but the pats and steelers survive on the draft. We are on our way in that respect. Although the pats do attract a lot of FA players.

    That’s right, what I’m saying is, yeah, we draft the best player on the board, yet also, we mix FA into our scheme on OF & DEFENSE for balance on both sides of the ball.

    I hope the cards change up their signals from the sidelines so Belechick doesn’t steal them. Might be a good idea to check their locker room for hidden cameras and mics also.

    Well I have to disagree with you this time Scott H, I don’t think it’s a loss, Period, it’s just going to be hard.

    At least this time we might get some better Ref-placements.

    I just don’t think Brady and the rest of New England are going to be happy with a Cards D that wants to be in control of the game, and has the players to do just that.

    I will agree on one thing, it won’t matter who the QB is for the Cards this week.

    GO CARDS!!!

    While I agree that playing Brady in Foxboro will be tougher than playing Wilson in Phoenix, the Pats are going to lose this year so it might as well be Sunday. The Giants made Brady look ordinary and hopefully we can do the same. I am sure the players and coaches won’t have your defeatist attitude. Go Cards.

    Great attitude.. There was no way we we’re going to the SB in 08 either but it happen’d.. I don’t think we should play the game, because we will lose, Scott said so.. Period

    I am waiving my kevin kolb flag. I still think he is the better option for us at the QB position. Darren what do you think? Who should be our guy for the future?

  17. By Eric Hutchins on Sep 12, 2012 | Reply

    Whiz is really disappointing some time. Like Skelton has done anything to deserve this protection. Like it would be some benefit for us for him to play at 75%. Even if Skelton was 100% he should be on the bench. Arg.

    Dear Kevin Kolb,

    Scott, why bother even posting anything on this website if you are not a tru Cardinals fan. I have missed two home games in the last 8 years and that’s traveling from NM. To not give this team a chance without them stepping on the field is a total lack of respect to this team and it’s real fans. Find something else to do with your time then to talk smack about The Cardinals!

  20. By DanAZ on Sep 12, 2012 | Reply

    Just start Kolb. He is a good QB he just didn’t have enough time to gain chemistry with the team last year but now that he has an off season under his belt he will be much better. Lets Skelton sit this one out coach.

    To be honest your chances of winning are slim against the patriots dont let a QB thats not 100 percent go into that game. Who knows maybe Kolb will regain his confidence back with a start and coming off of last weeks performance, he has something to build off of.

    Just something to think about.

    Scott H! Get your head in the game. It’s football brutha! There’s ALWAYS a chance. Nobody thought The Chiefs would destroy Brady’s knee and look what happened. We can at least hope for the same from Dockett! Buck up lil camper!

    Scott H-

    WTH with that Tom Brady hotter than his wife comment?? I agree with you about the game though, especially with KOLB probably starting at QB. The only way we compete is if our great defense plays outstanding ball because I don’t trust Kolb to get points on the board and you have to score against a great QB The Best IMO.

    BTW, love my boy Larry, but I know you’ve heard of Jay-Z’s wife Beyonce’. Don’t get me wrong, Gisele is a hot brazilian model, but Beyonce’ takes the cake IMO.

    RE: Future

    I don’t think either have done enough yet to say “this guy is the future.” Gotta let it play out some more.

    Winnable? Definitely!

    Tough game? For NE, yes!

    Let’s defend our perfect record. We have more weapons than Tennessee and a defense that rocks and is rock solid.

    Some say the Patriots offense is an irresistible force. IF, prepare to meet Horton’s Immovable Object!

    2-0 baby!

    (PS. why show everything we have in week 1 against the Seahaks that we know we can beat. This only gives our tougher opponents video to prepare with. We didn’t need to run to the edge.

    Remember the Super Bowl run, we saw things in playoffs we didn’t see durring the year. Always give something unexpected, ie. not previously on tape.)

    Darren,

    1. We have 53 on the roster. How many of that 53 are allowed to be active on game day?

    2. We seem to have troubles playing on the East coast; do East coast teams have the same difficulty traveling to the West coast?

    Thanks.

    RE: roster/east coast

    1) They can have 46 players active on game day.
    2) Generally, it seems it’s a little easier to go east to west then vise versa. Body clocks are “later” going east to west.

    Darren,

    thanks. The second answer cetainly makes sense. I’m going to have to research to see if teams like San Diego have the same problem on the East Coast. Interesting.

    Turnovers. Thats all it would take. No stat determines the outcome of a game more than turnovers.

    A couple turnovers and a couple good plays on special teams, and the Cards could steal this game.

  30. By Erick on Sep 13, 2012 | Reply

    I think you are mistaken. I don’t believe there was ever a competition between Beanie, Ryan, and William. The competition was between William Powell and Alfonso Smith to make the final 53 man roster.

    Tom Brady was exactly a 6th round pick in the draft that is Exactly where they got him

    Re: Tom Brady,

    That was my point, you don’t find QBs like him, or Kurt Warner in the 6th round. It only happens once or twice in TEN years maybe. Both are headed to the HOF. Gotta give Warner credit, it came alot harder for him and we were lucky to have him. He overcame adversity with leaving the Rams, to the Giants and then the mess we had at QB.

    Time for Sunday: D needs to bring Brady and Bellichick into reality. O just go with the game plan and take care of the ball.
