With the third preseason game completed, Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt could make a decision regarding a starting quarterback.

But he’s not ready to.

Per the Associated Press, Whisenhunt said Friday that he’ll consider the question over the weekend.

I’m sure I’ll get asked that question again,” Whisenhunt said. “The next time I think maybe I’ll have a little more information.”

Whisenhunt apparently plans to study the quarterbacks in practice, and possibly to play one or both of them in the preseason finale.

“We’ve still got some practice days left,” Whisenhunt said. “Since we’re not game planning, we’ve still got an opportunity to do some competitive practices with our defense so you get a chance to assess their play.”

Part of the problem, regardless of whether the quarterback is Kevin Kolb or John Skelton or Kurt Warner or Jim Hart is that the offensive line hasn’t been performing well. And this likely means that, whoever wins the quarterback job eventually will lose it.
