Win or lose, Kevin Kolb just wants to learn
"It's a nice way to test ourselves," Kolb said. "Win or lose or domination on either side of the ball, it's not going to tell us what were going to be like as a team, it may just indicate the direction that we're going."
Kolb's main goal is to gain experience in a system that he's only spent two weeks in.
"I just don't want to take a step back, just keep making moves forward," Kolb said.
With the main focus on gaining experience and learning, scoring isn't the most important thing, according to Kolb.
"We may not put up a whole bunch of points," Kolb said. "But you may feel good about it because you did certain things and accomplished certain things."
Kolb also understands that he may not be perfect in his second start, but plans to take as much away from the game that he possibly can.
"Maybe we make mistakes and we say now I understand what coach is saying," Kolb said. "Rather than, just writing it down on paper and not doing anything about it."
Kolb showed promise in his first game as a Cardinal, completing four of seven passes for 68 yards, hooking up twice with wideout Larry Fitzgerald. Kolb also had 19 yards rushing.
Head coach Ken Whisenhunt said Kolb could play into the second quarter Friday night, which should give the quarterback plenty of time to learn.
