Kevin Kolb Only Bright Spot vs New Orleans Saintsby Doug
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.
