Kolb, Heap inactive; DeSean Jackson sits for Philly

Posted by Darren Urban on November 13, 2011 – 9:37 am

Quarterback Kevin Kolb is inactive today with his turf toe, certainly not a surprise. More of a surprise is that tight end Todd Heap (hamstring) is back to being inactive after trying to play last week. The only healthy tight ends are Jim Dray and Jeff King, since Rob Housler (groin) is also out.

The other inactives are WR Stephen Williams, S Kerry Rhodes (foot), LB Joey Porter (knee) and T D’Anthony Batiste.

It means fullback Anthony Sherman is back and playing after hurting his ankle a couple weeks ago.

For the Eagles, wide receiver DeSean Jackson is inactive as punishment for missing a special teams meeting yesterday, taking away a key speedy starter. The Eagles were already going to be without starting guard Evan Mathis, who like Kolb has turf toe.

    The play calling is brutal. Every first down we run for no gain. Hasn’t anyone heard of play action. Between the play calling and the place kicking we are letting Philly off the hook.

    Irrelevant: I think the team, coaches, and anyone higher up in the Cardinal organization should vote on who they want to start at Quarterback. 1. Kevin Kolb 2. John Skelton 3. Rich Bartel or 4. I choose not to vote. It’d be interesting!

    Do the right thing Whiz, and Company!

    Start Skelton! Make him our starter!


    Show humility, show fairness, show that you care more about wins, and the team then your egos!

    Start Skelton!

    Really, REALLY nice win for this team! In a season where going to the playoffs probably ain’t happening, there is nothing better than a win against the Eagles!!! I will be basking in the glory of the sound of really un-happy Eagle fans and media for the next several days.

    As much as they made big plays when they were needed ( that catch by Fitz at the 1-yd line to set up the winning TD was a thing of beauty ), the biggest obstacle the Cardinals had to over-come was themselves. Missed FG’s, the INT’s by Skelton setting up the Eagles inside their own 20, and really bad penalties LOOKED like they were going to be the story of the day in allowing the Eagles to win a game they had no business winning.

    But never mind all that. The Cardinals DID play a better game from start to finish and even though they often lose those games, they over-came the Eagles AND themselves today for a solid win. GREAT to see Larry playing the way he did today. And GREAT to see some of the younger players emerging on defense.

    Skelton looked good early making smart decisions to throw ball away when nothing was there, but this did NOT continue. He was taking big losses on sacks too often. This, BTW, seems to indicate that maybe Kevin Kolb was taking too much blame for this. AND Skelton’s 2 INT’s are really what kept the Eagles in this game. Against better teams, you probably don’t get away with that. BUT all of that said….Skelton gets my vote to keep playing.

    And in regard to Feely….almost the 2nd game this season where multiple missed FG’s may have made the difference. He has been a disappointment. After the 2nd miss today, he would have been dead on the spot if the stare he got from Whiz could have killed. I wanted to kill him myself at that point!

    Do you see the cards holding onto Richard Marshall next season?

    RE: Marshall

    I don’t know right now. It’ll depend. With Toler coming back, it’d have to be at the right price.

    Darren: What a GREAT win vs. Philly on the road. Our defense has really been playing well as of late…Ray Horton is really mixing up the defenses, and keeping teams on edge.

    We certainly could have been 6-3, (losses to Giants and Ravens, and others), at this point. We do have a good team.

    We CAN BEAT THE NINERS NEXT WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!! go cards!!!!!
