first_imgKevin Kolb doesn’t want to shut it down for the season.“That’s not the way this league works,” Kolb said. “That’snot the way a competitor works.”Those aforementioned competitive juices still burn within,telling him he has something left to give to an ArizonaCardinals offense that he’s grown quite at ease with thisseason.“I feel very comfortable in this offense now and when youknow you feel comfortable for a quarterback is when yousay a play or a formation and it just pops up in your headimmediately,” Kolb stated. “So, that’s what began tohappen later on this season and I look forward to the nextopportunity to get out there.” “I think we all know that, especially at that position,the chances of guys getting through a whole season withoutan injury, doesn’t happen that much,” he said. Whisenhunt also praises the small sample size of actionhe’s seen from Kolb this season — citing games againstDallas, Carolina and Washington — as evidence of thepotential that can be built upon for next season.“You look forward to having more time to work with him andcontinue to grow as an offense,” Whisenhunt adds. D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Comments   Share   But unfortunately for Kolb his body — or morespecifically, his mind — hasn’t been willing to cooperateto this point.The Cardinals biggest offseason acquisition hasn’t livedup to the heavy hype that surrounded him coming into thisseason, as Kolb has been plagued by injuries andconcussion symptoms the majority of the year. That’s leftthe Cardinals to wonder what could have been if theirquarterback had stayed healthy. Kolb underwent further evaluation — a full psyche exam —for his concussion on Tuesday and was limited in practiceWednesday. The results showed the Cardinals why Kolb’ssymptoms have lingered and why this concussion differsfrom his previous one.Still, Kolb has been assured by neurologists that withrest and some time away from the game he shouldn’t sufferany long term effects.Backup quarterback John Skelton has filled in ratheradmirably for the injured Kolb, fueling some to speculateabout Kolb’s long-term security with the Cardinals. But,that chatter is just conjecture at this point.Head coach Ken Whisenhunt seems content with Kolb beingthe go-to guy for the Cardinals next season, acknowledgingthere’s always going to be the risk of injury at thequarterback position.
