All eyes on #7 tonight? Well how about a least a glance at #4? Yeah, probably not worth it. Keep your attention on #7.
I can't wait for the debut of Vick this evening. And it's a meaningless preseason game! But shouldn't there be some curiosity over the other QB...Kevin Kolb?
Good thing for Kolb is that he plays his best football in the preseason...always keeping himself employed. Unfortunately for the team and fans his performance tanks once the games actually count.
- 2007 Preseason: 66% completion, 2 TD, 0 INT, QB rating of 87.7
- 2008 Preseason: 58% completion, 1 TD, 1 INT, QB rating of 73.4
- 2008 Regular Season: 50% completion, 0 TD, 1 INT, QB Rating of 21.8
So even if we see a good performance tonight from Kolb, does it matter?
When the defenses aren't so "vanilla" will he again fold? And with the signing of Vick, does Kolb even matter this season? If McNabb were to miss significant time this year wouldn't you be more comfortable with a QB who has lead a team to an NFC Championship game (Vick) playing than a QB who has never thrown a regular season TD pass?
Here's to getting the team rolling tonight. No more post game comments with works like "embarrassment." See you down at the Linc!
