Is Drew Stanton the Answer to the Arizona Cardinals’ Problems?
In 2012, the Arizona Cardinals led the NFL in quarterbacks used as they started four different players underneath center. Now things are absolute chaos in Arizona as they have since released Kevin Kolb from the team. Going in a different direction, first-year head coach Bruce Arians is apparently sold on someone who has just four professional starts to his name.
Barring a drastic change, Drew Stanton is going to be the Cardinals starting quarterback when the 2013 NFL season begins.
Arians coached Stanton for just one season and it was when Drew was backing up Andrew Luck as a member of the Indianpolis Colts. Chuck Pagano and the Colts quickly replaced Stanton as they agreed to terms with Matt Hasselbeck earlier in the week.
The Cardinals put themselves in an awful position at quarterback, but with this year’s draft being so weak at that position in particular, this move does not strike me as inappropriate as much as it oozes desperation. Larry Fitzgerald is heading into his thirties, so the face of the franchise is going to need some better quarterback play if Arizona hopes to be relevant in 2013.
Stanton spent four years with the Detroit Lions and in that time-frame his best season was in 2010 when he started three games and threw for 780 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions. Arians obviously saw something in Stanton during his brief time with Indy, because the rest of the stat sheet surely is not in favor of this move.

Three questions the New York Jets still have to answer heading into training camp
There’s definitely a quiet excitement surround the Jets, and it’s well deserved. This team is significantly better across the board, and if it weren’t for the uncertainty at quarterback, people may be talking about the Jets as a serious contender. What’s interesting, though, is how different this team feels from the one we watched trot out onto the field last season. And while we may like to hope that all those changes are for the best, there’s still a lot of uncertainty. Read More
