Eagles QB Kevin Kolb wants to be a starting quarterback, right? Because Kolb is not making the most of his audition for an NFL gig next season.
The Eagles might have nothing to play for right now, but a great showing by Kolb could have made him an attractive option to a quarterback starved team like the 49ers, Cardinals or Redskins. Though, you get the feeling that the Redskins would not be a willing trade partner with the Eagles anymore, considering how well that whole Donovan McNabb thing worked out for them.
The most astonishing part of this Eagles game is that there was a point in time where the Eagles were going to forge ahead with Kolb. Make no mistake, the Eagles would still be playing in a meaningless game in Week 17 if Kolb was the starting quarterback. The only difference is that the Eagles would be on the golf course next week if Kolb had held on to his job.
And this is why fantasy enthusiasts should give thanks to coach Andy Reid for making the wise decision to stick with Micheal Vick this season, when out-dated NFL logic dictates that starters cannot lose a job to injury. Kudos coach Reid, for a job well done and having the fantasy enthusiasts’ best interest at heart.
