Does Kevin Kolb Have the “Toughest Job in the NFL this Year?”

I just read an article over on Philly.com about an interview with Deion Sanders where he was quoted as saying that Kevin Kolb has the “toughest job in the NFL this year.” Here’s the whole quote:

He has the toughest job in the NFL this year because, for one, he’s replacing McNabb,” Sanders said. “You can’t replace McNabb. He’s filling in for McNabb. And secondly, Mike Vick is behind this man. You know in your cars it says objects in mirror are closer than they appear? The first bad pass he throws, those wonderful, valedictorian-type fans… those wonderful fans are going to be chanting ‘Vick, Vick, Vick’ on the second play of the game if he throws an errant, bad pass. He has the toughest job in the NFL this year. He really does.

Quite an interesting statement here. I think the majority of the Eagles fan base wanted Kolb to take over, so I don’t think they’ll jump on him as quickly as Deion may think.

Kolb has a very talented quarterback behind him in Michael Vick, but Kolb is the Eagles quarterback of the future and Andy Reid is prepared to take the good and the bad with Kolb. The team groomed him for three years before they thought he was ready, and now it’s his time to prove that he is.

Is Kolb’s job in 2010 going to be tough? Of course. There are high expectations no matter who plays quarterback for the Eagles. It’s part of the job. Is he going to have the toughest job in the NFL? Who knows, it’s impossible to measure. Kolb is aware that people are expecting a lot out of him, and all that he can do is prove that he’s going to be a great quarterback in this league.
