Eagles should be fine with Kolb

Paul KasprzakContributor IApril 5, 2010

The Philadelphia Eagles made a gutsy move today trading away long time starting quarterback Donovan McNabb.  However, the Eagles should be just fine with quarterback Kevin Kolb at the helm.

Kolb started two games last year for the Eagles completing 55 of 85 passes for a 64.7 completion percentage throwing for 718 yards passing with four touchdowns and three interceptions with all three interceptions coming against the New Orleans Saints.

The problem with the Eagles is that they don’t have a consistent running game, so there are always a few games each year where the Eagles get caught in a shootout where no matter if it was McNabb or Kolb they would throw a couple interceptions trying to keep up.

In the end, it won’t matter who starts at quarterback as without a legitimate running game the Eagles will never win the Superbowl.

Good night and good luck.
