I get it, it was only the lowly Kansas City Chiefs, but for the Philadelphia Eagles fans it was so much more than that.
It was the second start of his career, the second straight week he hit WR DeSean Jackson deep for a touchdown, and the second straight week Kolb threw for over 300 yards.
Now I'm not here to say that because of those two games he proved to be better than McNabb, nobody can judge that until after their careers are long over — or at least until this season is over with.
But what Kolb showed in those two games is that he can remain calm in the pocket, release the ball before getting hammered, and lead a receiver into open space.
I'm sure there were other things involved that made the Eagles front office feel confident enough to trade away their franchise QB, Donovan McNabb.
But he did enough to land a starting job!
