Kevin Kolb

I'm with you in Philly where you're madder than I am:


The Philadelphia Eagles have named Michael Vick the team's starting quarterback, coach Andy Reid said Tuesday. "When someone is playing at the level Michael Vick is playing, you have to give him an opportunity," Reid said. "This isn't about Kevin Kolb's play. You're talking about Michael Vick as one the best quarterbacks in the NFL right now." 

Kolb missed the last six quarters because of a concussion, and Vick played well in his absence. Kolb was cleared to practice and was expected to run the first-team offense on Wednesday.

I really shouldn't say this, but I am pulling for him. Except when playing the Cowboys. The dude is just amazing to watch. It reminds me of Cunningham back in the day. Cunningham might have had a bigger arm. And Cunningham could punt. Had he won with Vikes that year, he'd be a HOFer.
