August 9, 2012 - While I'm not one to single out players and pick on them, I have to say that after looking at the facts and seeing what's happened so far this season, I've come to the conclusion that Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb just isn't durable enough to make it in the NFL, at least not for the long haul.
If you simply look at the fact that Kolb hasn't played in more than nine games in any of his previous five seasons in the league, you could conclude that his body just isn't going to hold up in this league.
I'm not trying to put an end to the Cardinals quarterback competition, I'm simply stating the facts surrounding Kevin Kolb's previous five years in the league. When you add in the fact that Kevin's already had two injuries in the past two weeks of the pre-season, it's just not looking like his body will hold up.
Say what you will about his potential, (and clearly I've been on board with this move since it happened last summer) I just don't see him as being durable enough to turn this into something positive for the long run. And clearly, when you're not healthy, you can't make an impact, or for that matter, even play.
Nothing against Kolb, but until he's able to play through an entire season, he's not going to be the next quarterback to lead the Cardinals to the promised land.
So at this point, we'll leave that up to the fifth round pick out of Fordham, John Skelton!
That's Fouhy on Sports!
