12:46 PM ET 03.21 | Drew Stanton is looking more and more like the new starting quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals, reports ESPN's Mike Sando. Stanton signed a three-year deal with the Cardinals earlier in March, and the subsequent release of Kevin Kolb pointed toward a big role for Stanton. Now new head coach Bruce Arians has made comments confirming that role. "I have all the confidence in the world with [Stanton] being our starter," Arians is quoted as saying. He goes on to note that he wanted to settle the issue quickly, and would not be looking for a quarterback competition during training camp. Stanton as starter isn't a small risk for the Cardinals. 2013 will be Stanton's seventh year in the league, but he hasn't seen action since 2010. He played in six games, starting three of them, with a 58 percent completion percentage, four touchdowns and three interceptions. That said, if anyone knows what to expect from Stanton it should be Arians. Stanton was Andrew Luck's backup in Indianapolis last year, where Arians was offensive coordinator and then interim head coach.

Why not, there is no one behind door number two. Is there?

I'm not sure there is a door #2.

Until Arizona gets a better OL, there isn't even a door #1.

I'm going to give Arians The Benefit of Doubt, he's earned that from me!

To be the best quarterback on the roster in Arizona is like being the valedictorian of the GED class.

The Cardinal O Line is nothing but open doors.

If he survives the season behind the Cardinals O Line, he just might break David Carr's record for taking sacks. Hope the equipment guys bulk up his padding.
