When Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb arrived via a trade last season and then given a $63 million extension, fans thought they finally found an incumbent to fan favorite Kurt Warner.

Judging by the reaction at the Cardinals Fan Fest yesterday, Kolb still has some critics to win over. There were scattered boos when Kolb arrived at the event, according to AZCardinals.com.

Kolb started nine games last season, throwing for 1,955 yards with nine touchdowns and eight interceptions. The Cardinals were 3-6 in those starts. He was eventually replaced by John Skelton.

“If it was up to me, I’d prefer we had a quarterback resolution two years ago,” Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “You got to let this competition play out honestly.”
