Hey guys, Joe from Revenge of the Birds for our weekly chat with this weekends opponent. After our horrible 1-6 start the Cards now have a chance to reach .500 and I will be attending this game so I'm very excited for Sunday.
If you have any questions about the Cardinals, leave them here and I will answer them along with anyone else from RotB that drops by. Feel free to set up one of these posts on our blog too.
And now for some quick notes.To all of the Browns fans that dropped by to tell us signing Derek Anderson was a mistake, you were right. I never thought making him the starter was a good idea last year, but now everyone thinks it was a mistake when it was more like 50/50 back then.
If you want to know why the Cardinals have been playing so well lately, it is because the defense has been outstanding. The Cardinals have been trying to become Steelers West since 07, and Ray Horton has the guys playing tough and aggressive AFC North style defense right now. Calais Campbell and Daryl Washington are also two outstanding players not many people know much about.
Patrick Peterson is a beast on Punt Returns, and he is developing well at corner too.
Kevin Kolb's status for the game is uncertain after a concussion he had on the first drive of the game last sunday, but Skelton has played well when he gets the chance to play. I feel confident in both of our Quarterbacks right now.
Some people think the Kolb trade was a bust and we should go with Skelton, I think that Kolb needs more time before you give a grade to this whole trade, and I think he will be much better next season after a full offseason and improving his timing with the receivers (something that has helped Skelton a lot is his time in the offense and his chemistry with Fitz compared to Kolb).
