Kolb will play, Ryan Williams will not

Posted by Darren Urban on August 10, 2012 – 5:02 pm

The Cardinals will have quarterback Kevin Kolb tonight to play after John Skelton is done with his starting gig. Kolb wanted to get a chance to wash away the taste of last week’s game, so he’ll have that chance. Running back Ryan Williams will not play, although he did go through warmups.

Those others not playing tonight are:

— FB Jared Crank (neck)

— DL Nick Eason (family matter)

— TE Jeff King (PUP – quad)

— LB Paris Lenon (ankle)

— CB Crezdon Butler (hip)

— LB Zach Nash (ankle)

— WR Stephen Williams (hamstring)

— RB Beanie Wells (knee)

— RB Javarris James (abductor)

    That offensive line is absolutely horrible.

    Notes from the game for our starters:

    -Loved how on the first drive Skelton didn’t freak out when there was a guy right in his face and he did a little side step (calmly) and made a completion. Overall Skelton played alright didn’t play well enough to call him the starter.

    -Cards D didn’t look very good against their starters but I’m not too worried about it Horton will get things ironed out. Glad to see Bradley is coming into his own in this defense. I think he played well in place of Lenon.

    -O line did a very poor job (like usual). They need to get it figured out it’s starting to get pretty ridiculous how all of our drives were halted because of our line.

    -on Kolb’s passing plays:

    First drive: dropped pass(right on the money), completed pass(right on the money), Housler let a rusher run right by him who sacked Kolb(note he didn’t run he stayed in the pocket), Jeremy Bridges let a guy get right past him to flush Kolb from the pocket.

    Second drive: Jeremy Bridges got beat again(Kolb made a very athletic play to stay alive, incomplete), Incomplete Kolb had great protection and ran from the pocket.

    To sum it up BOTH of our QB’s had bad drives because of our line, like the announcers put it it’s going to be very hard to name a starter when BOTH our QB’s can’t have a chance to settle down because of a bad Oline. Get this figured out Russ.

    Kolb looked poised to do really great had he a better o-line.

    Man did anyone else see that first running play of the half Floyd Smashed a guy down field blocking for Powell. Knocked the guy off his feet into the air! I’m excited about Floyd I hope he works his way into being at least the third wr on the depth chart.

    Maybe Floyd could play the O-Line! Hell, bring back Conrad!

    What did you think when Floyd about ripped the head off another player by grabbing his face mask and getting a 15 yard penalty? Is there room on the horrible OL bandwagon? Our offense is among the worst in the NFL, has looked like it for years. In Whiz we trust, or however that silly mantra goes. How about a new one…In Grimm we trust? I said it first!

    I want Stewart Bradley to make plays at the line of scrimmage not 12 yards downfield being pushed by the OL, I saw a lot of this. He can’t get off blocks. we need Paris Lenon back.

    The offensive line is a joke, no QB is gonna be sucessful with this group of bums. i feel bad for Kolb and Skelton.

    Just name a starting QB and stick with it and lets hope for the best. Its time to play your starting running backs.

    As usual, Kolb running off to the right AGAIN. His instinct is to run to the right……….cut him and hopefully recoup some money. And cut Haggans as well….hehe! Byrd is a stud, how can you cut a guy that plays like Fitz? U can’t.

    Eric Winston kicked our butts tonight, that is a guy we needed to try and sign.

    Big Red — “It’s time to play your starting running backs.” Are you serious? They’ve been hurt. One has been out for a year, the other has a history of knee problems but we know what he can do. What exactly is gained by putting them out there in the second preseason game (which would really be the first if we didn’t have the HOF game)? As far as I’m concerned, I don’t want to see Beanie or Williams in a preseason game at all unless I know they are totally healthy. Pushing it to play in a regular season game? Sure. But these games don’t count.

    Also, why am I not shocked that you want a starting QB named now, when Skelton looks to be ahead of Kolb? So many Skelton supporters were saying all offseason that you just wanted him to have a fair chance to compete for the job — many were skeptical that he’d even get that, because of the theory that Whiz “had” to play Kolb because they spent so much money and gave up DRC and all that to get him. Well, it sure looks to me like Whiz is giving Skelton his shot. So let’s actually have the competition and not try to sew it up after each has played a few series.

    dan – How was Kolb not supposed to run when the offensive line was letting everyone through almost every play? Stop hating so much.

    The Chiefs O-line was very aggresive. I believe that is the missing element with our O-line.

    You would have thought the Chiefs starting defense had a man in our huddle. They stacked the box on almost every running play. I’m begining to think that someone on the Oline is telegraphing the play in some way.

    Lyndley continues to impress. I would still like to see him against a first team defense at some point this preseason.

    Do we have a play for a TE in our playbook??? Housler can burn most DB’s and we do not get the ball in his hands.

    CNOTE –

    Thank you for pointing this out. While SOOO many teams are utilizing big, atheletic TE’s in their offenses and having great success, the Cardinals continue to pretty much ignore the position as a potential play-maker. I mean, you draft a guy like Housler AND you go out and get Todd Heap AND Jeff King all in the same off-season and for what??? How were we NOT supposed to get the impression that the TE was going to be more of a weapon in this offense? Yeah, good luck. We appeared to have up-graded the position significantly with tthese guys and, well…did anyone see a difference?

    On NFL field pass, I heard Floyd make a super block on the William Powell 67-yard run. What an effort.—I read his blocking is really good, too, besides his receiving.
