Kevin Kolb to Arizona a bad decision?

It's no secret that Kevin Kolb has struggled in his first season with the Arizona Cardinals.

So far this season Kolb has led the team to a 1-4 record and has thrown more interceptions than touchdowns.

According to Vinnie Iyer of the Sporting News, trading for Kolb was one of the worst offseason moves.

Sure getting Kolb to be their starter was an easy upgrade," Iyer wrote. "Unfortunately, it cost them their best cover man leaving the Cardinals a big experience and talent void.

Kolb was awarded a 65 million dollar extension once the team traded for him, a big sum for a quarterback that only had seven NFL starts at the time.

On the season Kolb has thrown for 1,281 yards, five touchdowns and six interceptions, completing passes at a 58.7 percent clip. He's also fumbled the football five times.

Only time will tell if Kolb turns out to be a bust, but barring injury the QB will have plenty of chances to turn things around and prove the Cardinals made a good move in trading for him.
