Kevin Kolb's sluggish play so far this season has gone largely unnoticed on the national scene, hiding in the NFL black hole known as the NFC West.
This week, Kolb steps back into the spotlight to face his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles. It won't be a welcome reception.
Kolb has struggled with his accuracy (56.8 percent completion) and thrown as many INTs as TDs in 2011. He hasn't resembled the franchise leader Arizona envisioned when they traded Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second-round pick to Philadelphia this offseason for Kolb's services.
Philadelphia's defense, a unit that's ninth in the league in pass defense, will only add to Kolb's woes. The difference is that this time folks will actually be tuned in to watch him flounder.
This is all contingent upon Kolb's health. Right now he says he still wants to start. A hurt Kolb against a decent Philly pass D smells like a slaughter a comin'.
