Cardinals coach: ‘I want Kevin to be our quarterback’

May 31, 2012, 8:51 PM | Updated: 11:19 pm

In what has become a daily occurrence, Cardinals coach Ken
Whisenhunt was asked Thursday about how he’s splitting the
between quarterbacks Kevin Kolb and John Skelton.

As you are well aware, the two are in what Whisenhunt is
calling a
“competition” for the starting job, and as far as we know
it will be a
while before a winner is determined.

There are some who feel the amount of work the passers are
in OTAs — a 2+ months away from training camp and just
more than
three months from the regular season opener — is
indicative of who
may be in the lead.

Not so fast.

“I’d have to go back and chart exactly the plays,”
Whisenhunt said Thursday of how the work has been divided.
“It might be 51 for one and 49 for the other, or something
like that, but I don’t think there’s a great discrepancy.”

In other words, there is not much to see here, folks.

In fact, for those who think the Cardinals will give an
edge to Kolb because of what the team gave up to get him
and invested in him, Whisenhunt has a message.
