The writing is on the wall; with Michael Vick named the starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles Andy Reid will trade the recently deposed Kevin Kolb before the October 19th trade deadline.
Once Andy Reid said, “I can’t predict anything down that far, nobody in this league can do that, that’s ridiculous, the future, we’ll just have to see,” when asked by reporters if Kolb would be on the team after the trade deadline it became obvious Kolb was available in a trade.
That statement was just part of Andy Reid's memorable double take when he named Vick the starter. That is because that statement came not long after he Reid announced Kevin Kolb would reclaim his starting job now that he was symptom free from the concussion he sustained against the Packers.
I always preach that the NFL stands for “Not For Long” but this is ridiculous. Wasn’t it just a few months ago that Kevin Kolb was used as the justification as to why Donavon McNabb could be traded to a division rival? And now after just 10 pass attempts and a concussion that Kolb has been benched.
C’est la vie.
The following is a list of five reasons why trading Kevin Kolb makes sense from the Eagles’ perspective and as a bonus I have included a slide with the two teams I think are the most likely to land Kolb.
