Kolb gets the nod for Sunday
Quarterback stock in the city of Philadelphia is about as volatile as it comes.
Eagles head coach Andy Reid announced on Wednesday that Kevin Kolb would start for the Birds this Sunday when they travel to Tennessee to take on the Titans.
Sunday will mark the third straight start for Kolb, who is 2-0 with wins over San Francisco and Atlanta in place of the injured Michael Vick (ribs).
Our thoughts are as follows: Kolb has been red-hot since taking over the gig in Week 5. Over the last two weeks he’s completed 44 of 60 passes (73.3%) for 579 yards with four touchdowns and just one interception. That’s good for a QB rating of 118.7.
What’s even more impressive is that Kolb is averaging a rock-solid 9.65 yards per attempt, which means he’s finally taking shots down the field.
And as we all know, deep shots sometimes lead to big points.
If Kolb can figure out a way to win at Tennessee in Week 7 and look good in the process, we don’t see Reid going back to Michael Vick.
Even if he already said he would.
