They said it

“I just know that as far as favorites and longshots, really I’ve never thought of it in those terms. I think we just, we’ve always been true to what we’ve said and we’re going to stick to the process. Kevin’s going to start this week like we said, and we’ll let it play itself out.” — Coach Whisenhunt on rumors of Skelton leading the race


Two years ago Adam Schefter was first in reporting that Matt Leinart’s days as a Cardinal were numbered, so it’s fair to give credence to his latest report, too.

That said, just because Skelton may be the “favorite” for the job does not mean it is his — yet. Kolb will get the start Friday against the Raiders and while it may be his last chance to prove himself to the coaches, he will have the chance.
