08:06 AM ET 08.16 | The Arizona Cardinals are still on the hunt for Kurt Warner's replacement, two years after his retirement. It was supposed to be Kevin Kolb, but he can't stay in the lineup. So now it's Kolb or John Skelton in a game of Last Man Standing, with no decision in sight. But that's OK because the Cardinals went down this path in 2008 when Matt Leinart was supposed to be the starter only to have Warner take the job and lead Arizona to the Super Bowl. Trust me, this is a legitimate quarterback competition, with neither side holding a clear advantage. But therein lies the problem: There's been no separation through the first two preseason games. Kolb makes starter's money, but it was Skelton who rescued Arizona last year.

Don't think it makes much difference............

Kolb or Skelton. May as well ask Cardinal fans if they'd preferred to kicked in the left or the right bean.

Maybe they ought to scale down the offense? Not everybody is Johnny Unitis!

Nice investment, Cards...


Just start Skelton and be done with it.

This is one team that's lucky to have a Skelton in their closet.

As much as we joke about Andy Reid, he's one heck of a used car salesman.

skeleton goes 7-2 last year as their QB? Kolb 1-6? Looks like a lot of separation between the two to me.

I think Arizona is smarter than this. But a lesser team would bring in good ole McNabb for a workout.

The most likely separation would be the shoulder on Kolb's throwing arm. We used to say Matthew Stafford in Detroit was a China Doll. Kolbkussion has him beat, I'm afraid.

On the other hand, it wouldn't surprise me if there's a separation between Kolb and the Kardinals at the end of the season.

The really dumb part is that the Cards had to know this before they went after him. He could not stay on the field for one game when the Eagles gave him the starting job. Knocked out game one. What were they thinking?
