Kevin Kolb has had three years to sit on the bench and learn the West Coast Offense that Andy Reid runs.
He certainly had a good teacher in Donovan McNabb. Even if McNabb's skill set didn't perfectly fit the West Coast, he certainly helped Kolb develop in his time here.
Kolb's skill set is perfect for Philadelphia's offense. He has great accuracy from short to mid range, he has a good arm for short and mid range passes. He can scramble and hit the open man on the run, and on top of all that, he's genuinely a smart kid.
He just has it all for this type of offense. Considering the deep ball isn't huge in the West Coast, he doesn't need to worry about getting good accuracy for deep balls, nor does he need to worry about better arm strength, although it would be a huge plus to have those skills.
We all know why Reid was so caught up with Kolb in 2007 during the draft, as he selected him in the second round while most had him going at around the fifth or sixth round. He has seemed at home so far with this offense, and he has the potential to succeed the greatest quarterback in Philadelphia history, Donovan McNabb.
This kid's future is certainly bright if he can keep it on the right track.
