Poll:
Do you think Kolb should be the starting quarterback when Skelton is healthy?

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Kevin Kolb seems firmly at the controls in Arizona, riding high with a Cardinals team off to a 3-0 start for the first time in 38 years.

Yet looming is a decision on whether he remains the starter, or the job goes back to John Skelton, who beat out Kolb in the preseason but has been sidelined with a sprained ankle since late in the season opener against Seattle.

Kolb came on to direct the winning touchdown drive against the Seahawks, then played well enough for the Cardinals to knock off the Patriots in New England.

Last Sunday against Philadelphia, he completed 17 of 24 passes for 222 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-6 Arizona victory.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt says until Skelton is healthy, "there is no decision."
