Arizona Cardinals quarterback John Skelton joined the show to talk about winning the job and to look ahead at the season.

Skelton  described meeting with Ken Whisenhunt when he said he was starting. He said that Kevin Kolb went in first. Then the coach brought him in and told him he earned the job.

Skelton described his relationship with Kolb. He said they’re friends in the offseason, but they’re still competitive when it comes to playing.

Skelton weighed on on the San Francisco 49ers. “They don’t have a lot of weak spots,” Skelton said.

Skelton discussed playing with Larry Fitzgerald. “He fights for the ball,” Skelton said. “He’s the type of receiver who redefines what open is.”

But Skelton said the team told him there were rules about throwing to Fitzgerald. “Don’t overthrow it, because he’s kind of sensitive about his speed,” Skelton said.

Dan asked Skelton, who went to Fordham, if he was bitter about schools in Texas not recruiting him.

“I was,” Skelton said. “I still am. I still have a chip on my shoulder about that whole process.” Skelton, an El Paso native, said his biggest resentment was UTEP, who wanted him to walk on.
