first_img Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away The Cardinals may not have a QB controversy, but theycertainly have something to think about.“When you see a guy in only his second year and theinexperience that John has,” ESPN’s Ron Jaworski toldArizona Sports 620’s Burns and Gambo, “to make some of theplays he made – tremendous.”Jaworski, who said Skelton has matured in his second NFLseason, pointed to one of Skelton’s touchdown passes toLarry Fitzgerald as a sign that the QB is doing a greatjob with “eye manipulation.” “He looked left, looked left, drew the coverage that way,comes back right and gets a touchdown,” he said. “Thoseare the little things I look for in a quarterback’s gameand you see Skelton has picked those up very quickly.”Skelton has not been great, having thrown a pair ofinterceptions to go along with four touchdowns, but hasled the Cardinals to a pair of victories in his twostarts. Jaworski said he saw “very few negative plays inthe game” Sunday, even though he did throw a pair ofcostly interceptions.With all that, Skelton’s success (loosely defined, ofcourse) has many wondering if the team should keep Skeltonas the starter even when Kevin Kolb is healthy enough toplay.While that may seem like a tough decision for a coach likeKen Whisenhunt to make, the truth is it’s a great problemto have.“It’s a luxury to have two guys that you think can play inthis league,” Jaworski said. “John certainly has performedwell the last couple weeks and he deserves consideration.” Comments   Share   D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’center_img Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Top Stories last_img
