Bidwill: Kevin Kolb to start for Cardinals in New England

Sep 11, 2012, 6:52 PM | Updated: 8:32 pm

Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt, when asked Monday, was not ready to name Kevin Kolb as his starting quarterback for Sunday’s game in New England.

Kolb replaced an injured John Skelton in the fourth quarter against the Seahawks Sunday, leading the team to a win.

And even with the news that Skelton’s injury was just a sprained ankle — which is good news — most figured Kolb would get the nod.

He will, according to team president Michael Bidwill, who was asked about Kolb on Arizona Sports 620’s sister station News-Talk 92.3 KTAR. He was a guest on the Karie and Chuck show.

“He’s going to be our starter obviously this week and we’re excited about the opportunity in front of us,” Bidwill said.

It’s a big opportunity for Kolb, too.

The QB lost a preseason battle with Skelton for the starting job, but now gets a chance to revive his career with the Cardinals.

Should he play well in New England — and every game after — there’s a chance he’ll keep the starting gig even when Skelton returns from his injury.
