Podcast: Ken Whisenhunt on 'The Herd'
By Mike Sando
Passing along : Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt with comments to ESPN's Colin Cowherd regarding the team's draft strategy and quarterback John Skelton.
Whisenhunt, himself at Eagle Scout, said he's a big believer in drafting for character.
On Skelton: "Winning seven out of the last nine, that is something that is very hard to do, and a lot of that was because we had a young quarterback who made some plays for us."
Yes, the Cardinals paid a $7 million bonus to Kevin Kolb recently, but Skelton will get a fair shot at the job because Whisenhunt will insist upon it. That has been the coach's style, no matter the quarterback. He even made Kurt Warner sweat out a competition with Matt Leinart before ultimately going with Warner.
