Can Bruce Arians Fix Arizona Cardinals QB Kevin Kolb?
If anyone is capable of fixing an offense–it’s Bruce Arians as he played a big role in helping the Indianapolis Colts reach the playoffs last season against all odds. Now that he’s taken over the head coaching duties with the Arizona Cardinals, all eyes will be focused on whether or not Arians can fix Kevin Kolb like he did with Andrew Luck during his rookie season.
The only problem–Kolb is far from the type of quarterback Luck is.
It’s no secret the Cardinals are frustrated with Kolb over the last two seasons considering how much money they’ve invested in him and he’s only appeared in 15 games. When Arizona acquired Kolb from the Philadelphia Eagles prior to the 2011 season, they were hoping to build the franchise around him since he made it clear he wanted to be a starter in the NFL, but that’s been far from the case over the last two seasons.
Now, depending on what the two sides decide on regarding his contract situation, Kolb may be looking for help from Arians as his final shot to prove himself in Arizona.
Luckily, Kolb will have one of the top wide receivers the NFL has to offer in Larry Fitzgerald to help him turn things around–even if he hasn’t made much of a difference for him over the last two seasons. There’s a lot of pressure riding on Kolb’s shoulders heading into next season and it should be interesting to see how he responds under Arians–assuming he receives one final shot with the Cardinals.
