QB John Skelton To Start For The Cardinals

NFL Adam Caplan reports that QB John Skelton will start for the Arizona Cardinals in Week 1 against the Seahwaks.

The quarterback competition between Kevin Kolb and Skelton has been one of the most talked about position battles throughout training camp. Skelton has been moderately better in games, but the coaching staff obviously believes that he gives them the best shot at winning.  He has a better pocket-presence and does a decent job of avoiding the rush. Overall, both quarterbacks had a poor preseason. Kolb finished with a QB rating of 49.7, which was a slightly lower than Skeleton’s 50.6.

Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt is scheduled to speak at a press conference at 2:00 p.m. Arizona time on Friday.
