John Skelton, former Burges Mustang who graduated from Fordham University with dozens of school records, was thrown to the fire last season in his rookie year in the NFL. In 2011, Skelton comes in with much more knowledge of the Arizona Cardinals offense, even as the club brought in Kevin Kolb to be the starter. In Thursday's 24-18 victory over Oakland, Skelton was 6-10 for 94 yards and a touchdown.
Kolb was 4-7 for 68 yards.
"It's crazy to think the five days I've been here, because we've already come a long way," Kolb said. "It's exciting to see what the future holds and how much better I can get."
