Like it or not, Kolb's the man.

Alright. Week one is over, and our beloved Philadelphia Eagles slaughtered the Carolina Panthers. Whoopdeedoo. It still only counts for one win. There's 15 more games to play, and now Donovan McNabb cracked a Donovan McRib. Kevin Kolb is coming in, because he is our backup QB. We'll probably sign someone (possibly A.J. Feeley) to play backup to him this week.

Despite the obvious fact that the Eagles cut Feeley, some of you are saying he should be signed and start. Kolb's not good enough. Really? Are you sure? Sure, he has done a decent job in the past, at times, but he's not good, and there's no reason he should play over Kolb.

Feeley's career passing stats? 55.9% completions, 6.1 YPA, and more career INTs than TDs. That's not someone whom we should trust with the fate of our team.

Kolb is young, and he's seen action in TWO WHOLE NFL games. Those aren't games that he had a week of preparation with the first team, either. Those are games he came in for McNabb. This is our first TRUE look at Kolb.

Unless John Madden is browsing our site, I really doubt any of you know more about football, quarterbacks, and talent evaluation than Andy Reid. Andy Reid has a huge amount of faith in Kolb. Kolb will have a whole week of preparation and he's armed with the knowledge that he will be starting, instead of entering a game cold and at a moment's notice. He's facing a porous New Orleans Saints defense that wouldn't be able to stop the Florida Gators from scoring.

A lot of you ready to give up on Kolb are guys that gave up on Winston Justice. I'd say he played pretty damned good today. Trust our front office, trust our players, and give them a chance. Why? Well, for one, you don't have much of a choice :)
