Is it possible that Kolb may have just reignited the QB controversy in Philadelphia?
Although, Kolb did play very admirably. He showed that he could react under pressure and made very impressive downfield passes. But most importantly, he picked up the win.
Finishing up the game with 21 completions, for 253 yards, and one touchdown. Finishing with a very impressive 103.3 QB rating. (For comparison, that is higher than Peyton Manning this week).
Kolb had some serious help on the ground game, LeSean McCoy ripped up the 49ers' tough defense, and most importantly Patrick Willis. McCoy finished the game with 18 rushes, for 92 yards, and one touchdown.
Considering that McCoy's was questionable to even play in this game with a tender rib, that's very impressive.
Leading the Eagles in receiving yards was, Jeremy Maclin. Kolb and Maclin seem to be developing very nice chemistry. Kolb connected with Maclin six times, for 95 yards, and no touchdowns.
Not surprisingly, Kolb was able to find Brent Celek for a touchdown. However, Kolb is still having a hard time getting the ball to Jackson, which is very disappointing.
The only reason the Eagles' offense is not a higher grade, is for a problem I have watched consistently, failure to complete drives.
This is the same problem the Eagles have always had, except for with Vick, who can seem to convert those difficult third-and-longs.
Also, the offensive line continues to struggle. It's just painful to watch, penalties and missed blocks, that's about it.
Other than that, Kolb looked sharp, McCoy played like an MVP, and the receiving set was able to get some big gains. Nothing to be disappointed about here, Eagles fans. Except maybe that offensive line.
