Peter King thinks Kolb will have a ‘B’ season

Aug 4, 2011, 5:26 PM | Updated: 6:37 pm

Kevin Kolb hasn’t even been allowed to practice with the Arizona Cardinals, but that hasn’t stopped national media members from speculating just how well he’ll do with his new team.

Sports Illustrated’s Peter King was on with ESPN Radio’s Colin Cowherd Thursday and shared his thoughts

“Kolb will go through some growing pains, some chemistry pains with Larry Fitzgerald but overall he’ll have a B year,” King speculated. “He will allow them to compete for a division title in a bad division.”

So, he’s saying a bad division will let Kolb have a slightly above average season despite some struggles and let the Cards compete? That’s not exactly going out on a limb. Especially when you consider the quartet of chaos, better known as the Cardinals quarterbacks, in 2010 kept them in contention in a lousy NFC West for a majority of the season (and by contention we mean below .500).

In all honesty it’s not fair to judge Kolb at this point. All anyone — King included — knows is what they saw from him in a few games in Philadelphia in an offensive system that is different than the one he’ll be running in Arizona. Once the preseason starts and he’s had a few games with his new team to evaluate him by, maybe then one can speculate as to where he and the Cardinals might wind up by season’s end.

Right now Cardinals fans should just be happy they have a quarterback. Everyone else is just playing ‘Monday Morning Quarterback.’
