The biggest move of and NFL spread for Week One of the 2012 NFL season came with the Seahawks and Cardinals game, basically because of all the moves both teams have had in the quarterback position.
The spread opened with the Cards at -2.5 favorites considering the way they played at the end of the season in 2011, and knowing that Seattle had some quarterback issues. However, that changed quickly after 3 weeks into the preseason as now they line dramatically switched to Seahawks -1.5.
Seattle named Russell Wilson their starter on Sunday night at with a variety of things to consider; his ability to extend plays; his accuracy and of course the excitement he brings to this offense.
On the other side, Kevin Kolb and John Skelton have played horrible during the preseason, and there is no idea on who will be the starter for week one.
“I have the sense that everyone is expecting a starting quarterback announcement today,” Whisenhunt said to open his regular Monday news conference. “We don’t have one for you.”
Kolb and Skelton each have started two preseason games and Whisenhunt said they will play against Denver in the last game of the preseason.
“I don’t know how long Denver is going to play their starters,” he said, “so as far as evaluation of the quarterbacks and trying to make it a level playing field, as for the number of reps and who they are playing against, I don’t know how much that would serve with John or Kevin out of this game.”
