Sunday’s game that puts the Philadelphia Eagles against the Arizona Cardinals is more than just a typical football game.

Arizona’s starting quarterback Kevin Kolb is doing what he can in the absence of the team’s official starter John Skelton to perhaps hold on to the gig permanently upon Skelton’s return from injury.

Eagles coach Andy Reid who initially drafted, mentored and eventually traded Kolb to Arizona from Philadelphia feels personally good about the direction that Kolb’s life has gone in.

  • That's a lie, reed must feel very stupid for tossing Kolb aside for the punching bag that starts for him now. But it is so fitting, Bad Karma is tough to overcome.
  • Stop writing this crap! Kevin Kolb has helped the Birds start 3-0 for the first time in 38 years. The "starter" only lasted 3 quarters of ONE GAME! That's Life. Kolb went through it. This Coach is weird with the press but he is not stupid enough to start an average backup over a QB who beat three good NFL teams!
