Kolb Already Talking About Starting Next Sunday

The Philly Daily News talks about how Kevin Kolb might have to step into the starting role next week for the injured Donovan McNabb:

Kevin Kolb could be in line to make his first NFL start next Sunday against the New Orleans Saints, with Donovan McNabb suffering a cracked rib in today’s opener against Carolina. Depending on how quickly the Eagles make a decision about McNabb and he feels, Kolb could get a full week of preparation with the first team for the first time. “Well, I think I can go in there and show leadership,” Kolb said after today’s game. “The biggest thing for a backup quarterback is leadership. Not let the offense miss a beat. Just come in there and run it as smooth as it was before the injury and keep us clicking.” Kolb, a 2007 second-round pick, has struggled in both of his significant stretches of playing time in relief of McNabb.

    Bring Feeley Back!! Kolb does not have the heart of an NFL player!! Feeley has been overlooked too much in his career!! He is much better than Kolb!! I bought a Feeley shirt in protest of his release!!!
