His struggles have brought about questions and concernover his play, and especially the QB’s tendency to bail onthe pocket prematurely and not go through progressions tofind an open receiver.“A little bit unsettled in the pocket, not staying withthe progressions, sometimes feeling that pressure,” ESPNNFL Insider Ron Jaworski told Arizona Sports 620’s Burnsand Gambo. “You would call that ‘cabin fever,’ you feelthat pressure and you get out of the pocket.” Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke What happens then is Kolb not seeing open receivers,getting sacked and, when he does get the ball away,sometimes throwing inaccurately. In all, Jaworski said theQB is playing “very, very fast.”The disappointing thing is one would have thought Kolb’splay would improve as the season went on, but sincethrowing two touchdowns in the season opener the 27-year-old has thrown for more interceptions (4) than touchdowns(3).But Jaworski said it would be far too soon to give up onKolb, even if he has been somewhat underwhelming.Kolb has not done well for the Cardinals on a consistentbasis, but it would behoove the team and its fans to havepatience with their new signal caller.“I think eventually he’ll be fine,” he said. “Like mostquarterbacks you have to work through some of theseslumps.“Right now there’s no question he’s in a slump.”And once he breaks out of it?“I think eventually you’re going to have an outstandingquarterback in Arizona.”last_img read more
