Skelton to Start at QB for Arizona


Remember this past off-season when Bengals fans were clamoring for Mike Brown to try and trade for Kevin Kolb to be their QB of the future? Its funny how times have changed. Now Cincinnati has their QB of the future in Andy Dalton, and they only had to use a second round pick to get him. The Cardinals traded pro-bowl CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second-round pick in 2012 to Philadelphia for Kolb, and then had to sign him to a five-year contract for $64 million that includes $21 million guaranteed. Now, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, he’s on the bench in favor of John Skelton, a second-year, undrafted QB out of Fordham, who’s started six games for Arizona, winning five of them. With the Cardinals at 7-7, and the Bengals at 8-6, Saturday’s match-up will be a mini-layoff game, since the loser will be essentially out of the playoff picture.
