The Arizona Cardinals blatantly ignored a glaring need as they passed on a number of quarterbacks in the first round of the 2011 NFL draft.
Instead they selected CB-Patrick Peterson out of LSU, the safest pick in the draft.
The Cardinals are still without a true starting quarterback.
Could the Cardinals be hinting towards their interest in Kevin Kolb of the Philadelphia Eagles?
The 2010 season started with promise for Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb, but the stellar play of Michael Vick turned this season into a “what could have been” for Kolb.
Named the starter before the season, Kevin Kolb is in his fourth NFL season and has shown promise, especially in 2009, when he started two games and threw for over 300 yards in both.
The Philadelphia Eagles had a chance to showcase Kolb for three games this season when Vick went down with an injury, and the former starter led them to two wins and five touchdowns.
There are a number of teams in the NFL that could use a quarterback like Kevin Kolb, and while the Eagles say they are committed to Michael Vick, we have learned that whatever the Eagles say about their QB’s doesn’t mean jack!
The Arizona Cardinals have three quarterbacks that wouldn’t start anywhere else in the league and are left wishing that Kurt Warner would come dancing back.
After letting go of Matt Leinart, the 10th pick in the 2006 NFL Draft, the Cardinals already have admitted to one bust, so why should they let another one come their way by selecting one in the 2011 NFL draft.
Through the 2010 season, the Cardinals yielded 50 sacks'”24 more than last year’s season total. That is something that could destroy a young quarterback but is a factor that Kolb has already dealt with in Philadelphia.
The Cardinals 1-7 record on the road left them at the bottom of the NFC West but with the addition of a veteran quarterback like Kevin Kolb the Cardinals could quickly move to the front of the NFC West.
