Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb has had a terrible start to his 2012 campaign. Through the first two games of the preseason, Kolb has racked up a whopping quarterback rating of 0.0. Yes, Kolb has been that bad.
Despite his struggles, Kolb will start the Cardinals preseason game against the Oakland Raiders on Friday but don’t let that fool you. Kolb will get the start but it is likely just his last chance to show he has what it takes to be the Cardinals starter.
As it stands now, John Skelton is the favorite to win the Cardinals starting quarterback position.
The Cardinals are giving Kolb every opportunity to show that he is the guy they hoped he could be when they traded cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second-round pick to the Philadelphia Eagles. Arizona then gave Kolb a five-year contract worth $63 million.
Right now, that looks like a big mistake.
