08:02 AM ET 12.13 | The odds that Kevin Kolb will endure another offseason of speculation are again rising. In two seasons with the Cardinals, Kolb will have missed 17 of 32 games because of injuries. He is due to make $9 million in salary in 2013 and receive a $2million bonus if he's on the roster in March. The Cardinals must decide if Kolb is worth bringing back at that price, at a lesser one, or at all. Kolb proved this year that, when healthy, he is the best quarterback the Cardinals have. He completed nearly 60 percent of his passes with eight touchdowns and three interceptions. John Skelton and Ryan Lindley have completed about 52 percent of their passes with two touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

So that makes him the best of the worst?

I can't think of a team that will give him another shot, if so.

Safe to say he can kiss that $2M bonus bye bye.

"Kolb proved this year that, when healthy, he is the best quarterback the Cardinals have."

My Mom used to refer to that as "damning with faint praise."

Cut your loses. He's playing just like in philly

The good news is that he didn't buy a house before the Arizona real estate market crashed.

According to this picture he still plays with a playbook wrist band on......

Must have a 10 cents brain, eh ?

The Cardinals certainly have enough of them.

It's a carry-over from Andy Reid. It's actually a take-out menu, but he wears it for sentimental reasons. It's the same one he was wearing when he got his first Kolb-Kussion.

The end of Kolb??? Never!!! The Browns and the Bills are desperate for underachieving quarterbacks.

December 13, 2012  08:25 AM ET

There was a beginning?

December 13, 2012  08:26 AM ET

Bye, bye birdie...

Even if Kolb had played up to his contract, the Bidwells would probably let him go before signing that check. All those 0's would cramp up the old check signin' hand.

That 4-0 start really effed up their chances for a premier quarterback in the draft, too. Way to go, Cards.

Nice.

The best QB that the Cardinals have? Cue up "the tallest midget" analogy.

Kolb will now enter "The Back-up Zone!"... which is where he should have been all along.

I agree. Kolb will be on somebody's roster next year, at a drastically reduced salary.

December 13, 2012  08:55 AM ET

They just need to remember, if he gets hurt, he is done for the year.
