The Arizona Cardinals will Stick With QB Ryan Lindley
The Arizona Cardinals made a great decision today to stick with rookie QB Ryan Lindley. The Cardinals lost on Sunday to the St. Louis Rams. Lindley threw for over 300 yards, but the story of course were his four interceptions. They still saw enough from him to keep him in the game. This speaks to how little faith they have in QB John Skelton. Great news for fans, not so much for Skelton. He will have a hard time finding a job in the future.
Lindley threw two interceptions that were returned for touchdowns which made the difference in this game. Cardinals’ Head coach Ken Whisenhunt says they were bad decisions, one of them was off his back foot, under thrown by ten yards. He also mentioned QB Kevin Kolb in his press conference on Monday. He says Kolb is progressing, but the Cardinals will wait until Wednesday to see where he is at.
It is obvious that Kolb give the Cardinals the best chance to win. He is the only quarterback that has the skills to go down and win a game in the fourth quarter. Skelton showed he knows how to lose games and Lindley is a rookie, so that is still up in the air.
In the loss, WR Larry Fitzgerald was not used to the best of his abilities. At this point, I’d like to see Fitzgerald break out of his politically correct shell and light a fire underneath is teammates. Usually this is not a good thing, but when the player is Fitzgerald maybe his teammates will get the message and stop making the mental errors that are costing them games.
