Sanchez, Garrard, and Kolb would be one sorry QB depth chart.

at best he and Cassel represents a cheap stop gap 2nd string backup option for us...

fact is we have to add 2 QB's . We'll draft one, but Travaris Jackson and Corp are not enough for a decent camp competition, and I fail to see who is better out there in FA

Yes but Skelton - not Kolb - is the Cardinals QB that we want, even if it means trading Mario to make it happen.

He has potential. That had to have been about the worst oline I've ever seen and he still hung in there and made some plays. For the right price could be worth a shot

I have a feeling he'll be unemployed until after the draft. Kolb will be some team's consolation prize after missing out on a QB in the draft, hopefully not ours.

Yes, that's the only big news out of this as far as I'm concerned.  If the Bills have any desire for Barkley (and i would not be disappointed if they got him)...the Cards might have just made the first move at drafting him #7.

This is what I was thinking. He finished the season with a better QB rating than Fitz despite his o-line and he has been better than Fitz throughout his career. I would be happy picking him up and waiting a year to draft a QB when there's a better batch.

We don't need a guy like Kolb.  He's an average QB and could be a stopgap, but, he's been pretty brittle... not sure if it's b/c of his size, strength or his O-line letting him killed back there, but, like in most cases, it's a combination of all three.

If the channism still rings true of always trying to upgrade at a position then Kolb should at least be considered at OBD.

Methinks Bruce Arians has learned the value of waiting for the right QB---i.e. not reaching for one this year if you can avoid it. He had a front row seat for the Suck for Luck campaign--17 weeks of misery for 10+ years of success...which reminds...
