FLAGSTAFF, AZ - It all started when I asked Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt to comment on NFL Network analyst, Willie McGinest's remarks on "Total Access" this morning regarding the Cardinals quarterback situation.
On today's show McGinest said he has friends that play for the Cardinals and they told him that they feel like players are gravitating more to John Skelton in the locker room than to Kevin Kolb.
At first, Coach wanted to clarify McGinest's comments, saying that he said players told him they "feel" like that's happening, not that it actually is.
But then, Coach Whisenhunt said he's not feeling that at all and in fact, he feels like both quarterbacks are getting similar respect from the team.
He added that he is dismissing McGinest's comments until McGinest comes forward with some names of the guys who allegedly told him.
He also added that as far as he knows, McGinest hasn't stood in the huddle with the Cardinals offense so second hand comments don't mean a whole lot. All in all, Coach Whisenhunt was more than gracious answering the questions, but you can tell, this whole quarterback competition (or controversy) is going to wear thin in a hurry.
John Skelton told me this morning that he believes that both he and Kevin are looking forward to the competition and it should make the entire team better.
Hey, at least we have something to talk about today other than the fact that everybody passed this mornings "run test." And we can thank Willie McGinest for that! Thanks Willie!
