Where did the Double Deuce nickname come from? What does it refer to?

Sacked in the end zone twice in a game, I think.

Jurecki talked about it at the end of last season. He mentioned that he came into camp like he was the guy and never dug into the play book.

Why would a guy who threw 5 touchdowns in a game vs both Cornell and Georgetown need to?

More like beating STL, SF and Seattle in succession went to his head.

Did the Cards really go on an 11-2 run? And go 4-2 in the Division just two seasons ago? Or was that just a dream I had after imbibing too much Kardinal Kool Aid?

And one reporter told me off the record which I told some people here about during the season. the primary reason he got benched is Whiz got fed up with him not knowing the plays. it came to a head in the atlanta game(?) when he ran a key 3rd down play with Floyd lined up on the wrong side of the field while the whole staff was yelling at him to move Floyd or call timeout. The play was supposed to go to Housler, but Floyd ran the right pattern, from the wrong side and ran right in front of Housler. Skelton essentially buried the ball into the ground because he had nowhere to throw, and then was glaring at Floyd.

The staff said sure he lined up wrong, hes' been doing that all year, but you're the QB, you're supposed to see that and move him, which Kolb had been doing constantly earlier in the season.

Then we got the ball right back, Fitz wide open in the endzone, Skelton missed him and that was it. Whiz had seen enough and went to Lindley, who'd been getting reps in practice because they were so fed up with Skelton they hoped it would light a fire under him.

Later in the year a couple of times Whiz made reference to Skelton needing to be better prepared to play, that the slow starts couldn't continue he needed to be in charge.

Lindley was horrible, probably still is, but there was a reason he was playing and it wasn't that Whiz was an idiot it was that Whiz had been talking about accountability all year and didn't think it was fair that his starting QB, didn't know the plays.

Not just twice in a game...two offensive plays in a row!

Before he was replaced, Skelton had completed two of seven passes for six yards. Kevin Kolb, who has traded the starter/backup roles with Skelton this season, isn't active while dealing with shoulder and rib injuries.

On Lindley's first career drive, the Falcons forced him to fumble. Though the play looked dead to a number of players -- including Fitzgerald, who ran right past the ball after he apparently thought it was an incomplete pass -- Jonathan Babineaux scooped it up and returned it for the 15-yard touchdown.
Does this ever sum up the fiasco that was the 2012 Cardinal Football season.

For people who say he sucks that didn't play at this level John QB had some moderate success. Yes last year he was lost on the field with lousy coaching. Yes he has a big arm but overthrew many times. But IMO he was the best we had the last bad season. At least when he was in the game he gave 100%. I never plaed with an O-line the likes of which a QB had better get life insurance.

I know he needed to go. Kolb needed to go and Lindsly should be gone. I'm happy with a real coaching staff and Palmer as our field leader. But, JS has plenty of talent in my opinion.

Add hypocritical to the list since Gee took offense to the bigoted comments of the eagles WR.

To be fair, these two guys are not that far apart, some might even call them both a form of a hillbilly.
