first_imgStarting Arizona Cardinals quarterback John Skelton said the end of the position battle is a good thing for not only him, but the team as well.“It’s good. Now it’s all ones,” he told media on Monday. “You’re not in there with twos. You’re not trying to check to see who the center is and stuff like that. Hopefully, from here on out, we’ll have the same 11 guys on the field every day.” The quarterback controversy between Skelton and Kevin Kolb felt like a never-ending saga, but the starter said he hasn’t really had time to discuss his role with the new backup.“We kind of just left it at that,” Skelton said. “We both are professionals about it. We both knew going into it theramifications. I think it was best left unsaid.”Skelton said that, after getting some starting experience last year, that he’s going to focus on keeping the ball in the Cards’ possession and do everything he can to help an offensive line that clearly struggled in the preseason.“We’re going to do some stuff to help out the younger guys outside, especially against a better pass rush,” he said. “Anything we can do, snap counts and stuff like that, we’re going to do to try to help them.”After being named the starter, Skelton said his phone and email filled with congratulatory messages from both people he knew and perfect strangers.“A lot of text messages. I feel bad because I can’t even reply to all of them there are so many.
