“A little ways away” for Kolb, and other notes

Posted by Darren Urban on November 17, 2011 – 2:32 pm

Coach Ken Whisenhunt isn’t making any announcements on his starting quarterback, but he acknowledged that Kevin Kolb remained limited and “is probably still a little ways away from playing.” That seems to open the door for John Skelton Sunday in San Francisco (not that there was a lot of reason to think otherwise anyway).

The injury report climbed by one today when reserve tackle Jeremy Bridges was added as limited with a bad back.

— Tight end Rob Housler (groin) was upgraded to limited, as was running back Beanie Wells (knee) and tight end Todd Heap (hamstring). The Heap thing is a mystery. Whisenhunt certainly isn’t putting any timeline on his return. “That’s a tough one,” Whisenhunt said. “He’s getting closer, but it’s been frustrating for him to fight this thing. Hopefully he will be back here rolling pretty soon.”

— Safety Kerry Rhodes doesn’t have a cast on anymore, but the status of when he will return remains murky.

— Speaking of Rhodes, he will host the Big Red Rage tonight at 6 p.m. at the Majerle’s in Chandler. Skelton will be his guest.

    Hey Darren
    Just wondering. I’m from Canada and obviously can’t listen to that broadcast. Does that get posted on the website ? If not that’s alright I’d just like to hear what Rhodes and Skelton have to say
    Thanks again

    If Duece L is active on game day, do you think playing him as a blocking TE would help the tackles and slow down the pass rush?
    (thinking outside of the box)

    RE: Lutui

    I’d use Hadnot as the TE and Deuce as the G, if you had such an alignment. But a TE is usually on the edge, and putting a guard out there as a pass protector probably wouldn’t work.

    Sorry, if you answered this before Darren, but barring injuries, do you see Porter getting much play when healthy; even as a third down rusher?

    RE: Porter return

    If anything, I’d see him on earlier downs, since I think Acho has been more effective as a pass rusher.

    Please don’t even get on the plane Kolb. We don’t need to see u sporting ur expensive watch on the sidelines. Just stay at home on your nice comfy couch that u probably overpaid for just like the Cards did for u. Go Big John!!!!! Go Cards!!!!!

    “Kolb equals bust”, you are an idiot. I guess you did not know that Kolb helped the defense read Philly’s tendencies last week FROM THE SIDELINE. Take your jealousy and hate for Kolb somewhere else.

    @ we missed Q..
    Glad to see there is at least one Kolb supporter on this site. What many don’t seem to consider, is that Kolb ( though he is in his 5th yr) in the league. Has had very little on field playing time. Also, when he played at the University of
    Houston (he was a red shirt freshman) and a 4 year starter. But they did not take many snaps from center very often. As they ran a spread offense. Which was playing out of the shotgun 90% of the time. So it’s going to take some time getting his footwork right and learning to stay in the pocket longer.
    But I have seen the strides he has made in the few times he got to play in Philly.

    To expect him to come here and play lights out when he is in a new system with new team mates is unfair not to mention ridiculously unreasonable of the fans who are so quick to write him off.

    Kevin is a complete professional . Whether he is playing or not. The Cards might not have won that game last week against his old team. Had Kolb not made the coaches aware of the formations that the Eagles were setting up.
