Arizona Cardinals will stick with John Skelton at quarterback

Matt Kartozian-US PRESSWIRE

Arizona Cardinals' coach Ken Whisenhunt said the team will stick with John Skelton at quarterback despite calls for rookie Ryan Lindley to have an opportunity.

Arizona Cardinals' coach Ken Whisenhunt debunked any notion that the team would think about taking quarterback John Skelton out of the starting spot in favor of rookie Ryan Lindley. Whisenhunt dismissed such thought – one brought about by fans more than anyone else – on Tuesday:

Skelton has not looked as sharp as Kevin Kolb, whose rib injury slid Skelton into the starting spot. But he'll be the quarterback until Kolb can return.

The Cardinals' offense struggled mightily against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night, going 2-for-14 on third downs and failing to find the end zone. Skelton racked up 290 yards and threw an interception, but it didn't help that he was sacked four times and was not complimented by a ground attack that rushed only nine times for seven yards.

Skelton has four interceptions, two fumbles and only one touchdown this season.

Lindley has not received a snap in the regular season.
