Year 2 for John Skelton = same results in opening preseason game

Cardinals Quaterback John Skelton enters this year as a backup to the starter and 21 million dollar man as they like to call him, Kevin Kolb. Last year he started in 5 games and threw the ball well enough to win two of the four games including a game winning drive against the Cowboys on Christmas Eve. But even with all the controversy on who will be the backup this season in Arizona, John wants to be able to go out and play with his teammates…

“Kevin comes in highly touted, he’s having a great camp and he was behind the eight-ball having to sit out those (early) practices,” Skelton said. “But that week or so when it was just the three of us, we were pushing each other. One of us would make a play and another of us would make a play too. It stinks because we know in all likelihood someone will have to be let go, and whoever that is it will be rough because I think we have great chemistry in the quarterbacks room.

Last year in his first preseason game against the Texans, he led two touchdown drives to take the lead and win the game for the Cardinals. This year he put up the same numbers…

J. Skelton 6/10 94 9.4 1

It was a great game for John. He started out 0-2 and missed the receivers but he hung in there tough and threw a great 18 yard strike to Stephen Williams in the back of the end zone. He has grown in my opinion when watching tape on him and I really see a bright future even though Kevin Kolb is in his way. I think it will be a nice test for him to see how he will do against the defending champion Packers at Lambeau Field. Tune in for it fans, it should be a great one…
