On Kolb

An honest question for Eagles fans- what gave you the impression, prior to yesterday, that Kevin Kolb is good? I'm not trash-talking; I honestly am curious why.

Kolb has always looked awful in preseason games, as well as in the controversial game in '08 when he relieved McNabb in Baltimore. He threw for a ton of yards in his two regular-season starts last year, winning one and losing the other.

So what's inspired the confidence? That the organization seems to trust him? That he's always looked good in practice? That Andy Reid, for all his faults, seems to have good judgment with quarterbacks? Or just that his name isn't "Donovan McNabb"?

I'm not saying he won't eventually become a quality quarterback. And since they've committed to him as their starter, I don't see how they can yank the starting job from him after one half of one game. But my goodness- that was NOT a good start to the Kolb Era.

I have never been a Kolb fan. he was a serviceable at best backup last year for 2 games. He suckity suckity sucks as a starter, and is now injured. It's said you don't lose a starting job to injury, but you certainly do lose it if you suck and there's someone better down the depth chart. Eagles would do well to sign a free agent and draft a new QB next year. Reid is the one who should have been sent packing long ago.
