From Pro Football Zone:

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb traveled with his teammates this past Sunday despite being injured and not being able to play against his old team, the Philadelphia Eagles.

Even though he wasn’t able to help his team by playing, he helped them by calling out the Eagles' plays from the sideline.

"It was funny, as they were lining up for the plays, I’d go ‘Hold on, they’re gonna do this.’ And you don’t know if they changed things up or what… but the ones that I was for sure on, I was letting it ring, and I think I helped us out maybe just a little bit here and there,” Kolb said on 94 WIP.

"During the two-minute drill, you almost feel guilty,” he said.  “Mike’s sitting there giving the signals, and I’m standing there on our sidelines, screaming at our corners, ‘Hey it’s a go ball, hey he’s running a screen, hey he’s running a slant.’”

Kolb tried to down play how much it may have helped his teammates.

“How much of an effect do I really have?” he said. “I’m screaming to one guy. He may hear me, he may not. Luckily for us at that point [presumably the 2-minute drill at the end], the crowd was pretty dead and some of our guys could maybe hear it.”

  • He knew all of the plays the Eagles were running but apparently wasn't good enough to excute them while he was in Philly and hasnt done $h!t else for the Cardinals all year.
  • so just how good has Vick been running the team? Their numbers are almost identical. Its going to take 5 years for the Eagles to dig out of this hole they put themselves in by giving the keys to Vick. He's to small to play the QB position in the NFL. He's not Rubics Cube anymore, those days are over. The late great Jim Johnson solved that puzzle.
  • Wow you sound like a very unhappy eagles fan. He actually when healthy was a decent QB for both the eagles and the cardinals my friend. Just sound like you may be missing him a bout since your 200 million dollar dream time is more like a night terror. Thats what happens when you have a bunch of egotistical morons in one place. Dont be bitter and cant get any worse!!!! lol
  • Great job Kolb. That's what you do to your old team, you use what you know to beat them. Kolb is a good QB and the Eagles made a mistake trading him. A Vick / Kolb quarterback combo is good for the Eagles. Vick needs a push and Vince Young isn't that good to push Vick as he needs.
  • I said this the minute this came to light on Tuesday... if even a portion of what Kolb says is true, ANDY REID AND MARTY MORNHINWEG NEED TO BE FIRED IMMEDIATELY.

    There is no excuse for facing a former QB's team, and not changing up your signals or play calling.

Switch pitcher could see action in MLB

29-year-old New York Yankees minor leaguer Pat Venditte normally wouldn’t be a player worth noticing. He’s been in the minors for the past seven seasons after the Yankees selected him in the 45th round of the 2007 amateur draft.  On the surface, Venditte is nothing more than your non-prospect who has bounced around in small towns in an attempt to make it to the Majors. That’s...

Oakland Raiders fielding oldest roster in NFL

Report: Sam clears waivers, can join an NFL practice squad

ST. LOUIS — Michael Sam was probably never an ideal fit with the St. Louis Rams and it had absolutely nothing to do with his sexual orientation.
