NFL Network analyst and Former NFL linebacker Willie McGinest was on NFL Total Access and said that friends of his that are on the Arizona Cardinals have told him they prefer John Skleton over Kevin Kolb.
“Talking to some of my buddies down there, it seems like they’re gravitating toward Skelton a little bit more,” McGinest said.
Skelton certainly looked more in control of the Cardinals offense last season than Kolb.
“He’s a big quarterback, he’s tough in the pocket, he has a carefree attitude, he really doesn’t have any pressure,” McGinest said of Skelton. “He didn’t get a huge contract like Kolb did, and he’s one of those guys that can command a huddle, can come in there, and guys just like his attitude.”
McGinest indicated that he’s not sure if Kolb is a winner.
“In six years he’s won five games. Kolb’s won five games in six years,” McGinest said.
