Cardinals problem according to Kolb: lack of professionalism?

Time to play the blame game.  Who’s going to step up?

The quarterback.

The Cardinals were embarrassed by the Vikings on Sunday, dropping their fourth consecutive game as they head into their Bye week.

Afterwards, Kevin Kolb, who watched backup Richard Bartel finish out the Vikings humiliation, hinted that the Cardinals are plagued by a lack of professionalism.

“That’s the problem. It’s not one person making a lot of mistakes; it’s all of us making one or two mistakes,” Kolb said according to Paola Boivin of The Arizona Republic. “That’s where details come in. The head coach hit the nail on the head: We’ve got to get back to detail-oriented football.

“It starts with meetings. It starts with showing up to work on time, getting in early, getting your work done. All of the stuff that a professional is supposed to do.”

In his first two games as a Cardinal, the Houston alum threw for 560 yards, four touchdowns and only one interception.

Since being picked off by Seahawks cornerback Marcus Trufant late in the first half in Week 3, the former Cougar gunslinger is 52-of-97 for 582 yards, with zero touchdowns and five interceptions for a 50.3 passer rating.

On the season, his completion percentage sits at a shaky clip of 58.7%.

Clearly, undesirable numbers; especially when you consider he’s a quarterback who’s known more for his accuracy than his arm strength.

Maybe the blame goes to Kolb?  A strong suggestion: start by examining your own poor performance, Kevin.
