I’m not sold on Kevin Kolb.

I think he’ll be okay.

Heck, maybe he’ll even lead the Cardinals to the division title this season (whatever kind of accomplishment that is).

But will he bring a Super Bowl to Arizona?

I don’t think so.

And isn’t that what every team should strive for?

If the Cardinals want to be mediocre for the next decade and maybe win a playoff game or two, sure, go the Kolb route.

But if a title is what management wants, I would have liked the organization to go in another direction this offseason.

In a direction that I like to call Andrew Luck Town.

Luck, the quarterback for Stanford, isn’t just a great prospect.

He’s generational.

He’s the kind of guy analysts don’t have to project into the next level because he’s already an NFL caliber player.

I remember last fall when Stanford came to Tempe and on one specific play, it looked like James Brooks would sack the quarterback for a big loss.

But Luck somehow managed to fire off his back foot and flick the ball 40-plus yards down the field for a completion.

It was the type of play that kids are named after.

But back to my original point.

If you’re the Cardinals, why not sacrifice one bad season for the opportunity to land a player who could lead you to multiple championships?

Nobody would remember the 1-15 season in 10 years.

I know Luck isn’t guaranteed to be as special as I make him out to be, but why not try?

Either way, I know whose number will be on the next jersey I purchase.
