There's a good old-fashioned quarterback battle going on in the Arizona Cardinals' training camp, and according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, John Skelton is "now considered the favorite."
Kevin Kolb came to Arizona as the presumptive starter before the start of last year's season -- by dealing Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second-round pick to the Philadelphia Eagles -- but played just more than half the games last year due to injuries.
Kolb managed to toss a grand total of nine touchdowns in his nine starts, completed eight passes to the wrong team, and fumbled the ball seven times.
He was out for good last year after taking a foot to the head in the first series of his ninth start, but in the previous eight starts, the Cardinals' record was 2-6.
On the other hand, the Cardinals were 5-2 with Skelton starting -- plus they won the game that Kolb left during the first series.
He threw 11 touchdown passes, with 14 interceptions, and the largest margin of victory for the Cardinals with Skelton starting was six points.
Neither quarterback has played that much in the Cards' first two games, but most fans probably have their minds made up already about which quarterback they want to see in the starting role.
So, who is it?
