Kevin Kolb, the QB whom the Cardinals traded for, and then signed to a $63 million deal, looks more and more like a major bust. In a preseason game against the Raiders Friday night, Kolb got the start but was sacked three times, including a safety. He had happy feet in the pocket, prompting Tommie Kelly, a defensive tackle on the Raiders, to say afterward:
“He is skittish. He is scared back there,” Kelly said. “Anytime anybody gets close to him he starts looking at the refs. As a defensive lineman you love a quarterback like that. He ain’t even trying to look at the routes no more. He is paying attention to us and you ain’t going to get nothing done like that.”
There’s a very real chance Kolb losing the starting job to someone named John Skelton. He’s a 24-year-old from Fordham who was serviceable in starting seven games last season.
