Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb needs to take next step

Ken Whisenhunt

TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Cardinals are looking at quarterback Kevin Kolb's feet in order to fix what is wrong with his arm. That sounds like coaching's version of acupuncture, but coaches believe Kolb's arm will follow wherever his feet lead.

The problem is evident. Statistically, Kolb has regressed over the past three weeks. In the first three games, he completed 62.5 percent of his passes; in the past three, 53.6 percent.

In the past two games, he's missed open receivers for big plays, possibly touchdowns.

To Kolb, the pocket looks as uncomfortable as new, unwashed blue jeans, the kind you can't wait to get out of.

“He has to get better at his footwork, which will allow him to stay in the pocket and make some of those throws,” coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “He's getting his body in bad position because of his footwork and that's what we have to change.”
