Kevin Kolb Only Bright Spot vs New Orleans Saints

Well yesterday Eagles QB Kevin Kolb had his first career start.  I for one think he did a pretty decent job.  The Saints scored first but on the very next position,  Kolb made a beautiful pass to DeSean Jackson resulting in a touchdown.  After the first offensive series for both teams it looked like we might be in for a shootout.

As the game progressed Kolb proved to be willing to work with the wildcat formation and more importantly he did not see to be afraid to take a hit.   A few times Kevin Kolb delivered great passes just a split second before getting hit by the New Orleans defense.

As for the three interceptions, this first we probably his fault.  As for the second and third, I really feel they were a result of trying to make something happen.

Overall I think Kevin Kolb is a pretty decent quarterback.  In fact his performance yesterday reminded me a lot of a Brett Farve.  Why?  For one Kolb was will in to stand in the pock, take a hit to complete a pass.  Secondly the two interceptions were a result of trying to make something happen even thought he was down by a good margin.  Finally, Kevin Kolb and Brett Farve are both from Southern states, Kolb Victoria, Texas and Farve is from  Gulfport, Mississippi.

I think it would be interesting, and possibly painful as an Eagles fan,  to see if Kevin Kolb were to be traded as a starter, how his career could develop.  If Kolb were traded do you think he would make a successful starter in the NFL?  I do.

    well i was there yesterday, and i agree it wasnt kolbs fault! he stood in there and faced the rush a few times and put up some numbers. i know that it was come from behind passing yards, but still it wasnt that bad. the special teams and defence were terrible. especially the defence. where was the pass rush? and we are beginning to see the end of the westbrook era.

    Totally agree. I think Westbrook is on the down side. So why did they trade Buckhalter and let Dawkins go and I don’t think Stacy was MIA yesterday too. Where’d that money go. I think get my Michael Phelps on is code for something….

    I was impressed with Kolb especially on the scoring bomb to Jackson that tied the score. One of the interceptions was simply not recognizing the linebacker but overall I think he did a good job. It’ll be interesting to see how he follows up this week.

Got something to say?
