First Down, Fourth Down: Carson Palmer re-energizes Arizona’s offense | Audibles -
Since Kurt Warner’s retirement following the 2009 season, the Arizona Cardinals have tried to fix their quarterback situation with Derek Anderson, John Skelton, Max Hall, Kevin Kolb, Brian Hoyer, and Ryan Lindley. Warner was going to be a tough act to follow under the best of circumstances, but these were the worst. None of these guys showed the ability to get it done. The Kolb deal, which cost the Cardinals a second-round pick and cornerback Dominique Rogers-Cromartie to the Philadelphia Eagles, was disastrous for all parties involved. General manager Rod Graves and head coach Ken Wisenhunt signed Kolb to a six-year, $65 million contract in July 2011, Kolb was ineffective and the Cardinals kept losing. By the end of 2012, every party involved in the deal had lost their job.
