If the Cards beat the reeling Browns (4-9), however, coach Ken Whisenhunt’s bunch will have rallied to 7-7 with two games remaining in the season, a remarkable turnaround for a year that started so sour.
“I think it would mean a lot to our fans, I think it would mean a lot to our players,” Whisenhunt said. “It’s a big deal for us, to be where we were. That’s nice and it means a lot. But we have done a good job in this stretch focused on a week-to-week thing and not getting too caught up in that. Hopefully that continues Sunday.”
Browns QB Colt McCoy won’t play Sunday because of a concussion. The Cards will see backup Seneca Wallace, and coincidentally, will likely start their own backup QB, former Burges Mustang John Skelton, because starter Kevin Kolb also suffered a concussion last week.
Skelton, however, is coming of the best game of his career. He did have three turnovers last week – an issue Whisenhunt remains concerned about – but completed 19-of-28 passes, much higher than normal and what the Cards hope is a nod toward his development.
