I think the whole Donovan McNabb/Kevin Kolb debate is stupid. Nothing from the past dictates the future. Sure, you can base decisions off the past, but that doesn't mean that what has happened in the past will continue to happen.
We just scored more points than any Eagles team ever. That was in 15 games, because we got shut out in the last one. Yes, the offense was miserable against the Cowboys. Yes, McNabb played poorly. Big deal.
NO OTHER FAN BASE throws their QB under the bus every time the QB has a bad performance. It's disgusting. A lot of you want to go to Kolb because "McNabb can't win the Super Bowl". Let's say we make Kolb the QB. Two seasons from now, if we don't have a Super Bowl, everyone who wanted Kolb this year will be throwing him under the bus. Why?
Yes, some people are making legitimate points for the switch to Kolb. Most of you aren't. The fact is we just had the best offensive year our team has ever had and McNabb was the QB for 14 of those games. Our defense was good but gave up a lot of points, and we STILL won 11 games. 10 of them under McNabb.
People are bickering and arguing over where they'd rank McNabb amongst the NFL's top QBs. We can safely say he's outside the top 5. However, from 6-10, is there that much of a difference? Guys like Tony Romo, Brett Favre, Kurt Warner, Carson Palmer, Matt Schaub? Would you rather have them than McNabb? I can't say I would. Can you definitively determine which of those QBs is the best? Hell no. They're all about the same. So even if he's 6th best in the league or 10th best, there's not much of a difference. After that there's a noticeable dropoff, but we know that McNabb is better than about 75% of starting QBs in the NFL. That's pretty damned good.
Another thing is this: Let's say he is "only" the 10th best QB in the league. Where is Kolb? You don't know. I don't know. I know none of you can make a case for him being better than McNabb with what we know now.
I will continue to support any player in Eagle green. If McNabb gets traded, I will root for him wherever he goes, unless he's facing the Eagles. I think he deserves better than what Philly fans have given him. You can make a case for Kolb, but you can't say Kolb is the better choice because "McNabb just can't win it" or "You know Kolb gives us a better chance to win now" (at least not without sounding like an idiot).
