Whisenhunt hints at Kolb or Orton
Most talk pertaining to the Arizona Cardinals quarterback position has come from people with no actual say in the matter (like us). Monday someone whose job security is directly connected to the move weighed in on the matter.
Cards head coach Ken Whisenhunt joined the SiriusXM NFL Radio show the Blitz and had some interesting comments about just what direction the Cardinals will head when the lockout is lifted.
“If you have a chance to get a young quarterback that you think could develop into a great player for you for a decade, as opposed to a veteran player that you think might come in and help you right now, you have to go with what your evaluation is and with the one you have rated higher.”
Unless the Phoenix Suns want to share their fountain of youth with the Cardinals, quarterback options like Marc Bulger, Matt Hasselbeck and Carson Palmer have a worse chance of being relevant in 10 years than Anthony Weiner jokes.
That means the two realistic options that have been mentioned become Kevin Kolb and Kyle Orton. That is, unless Whisenhunt and the Cards are sold on John Skelton. Then things could get really interesting.
