Make or Break Kevin Kolb

Tonight for Kolb is make or break. With Vick on the sidelines with a rib related injury, the HAS TO prove that he can manage more than dink and dunk. Especially since this Niner's D allowed over 400 yards to the Chiefs offense just two weeks ago.

And here's why. Let's say the Eagles lose 3-10. A real close and defensive game. If Kolb can't show that he can hit Maclin or Jackson deep or rather on a 7 yard slant, then he isn't the quarterback that we all fantasied about, with JimmyK showing game film on how great he is and if the receiver ran a better rout or the o-line just blocked for a second longer. Because capable quarterbacks make plays WHEN THERE IS PRESSURE. Yes, the o-line is playing very poorly lately, even for a usual Eagles o-line, but boo-hoo. He doesn't have to be Vick, heck just by yourself some time in the pocket. McNabb has slowed down significantly this season. He played with some sort of leg injury, but late in the second half, he bought himself some time and found Lance Armstrong for a 70+ touchdown. 

Heck, let's look at one of the best pocket passers today, Drew Brees


Two things we and Kolb should take away. One, Brees has his eyes down field, 99% of the time. Two, he makes time in the pocket HIMSELF. Not that many in this highlight reel, but the very first one shows him avoiding guys in the pocket, and look what happened. 

Kolb, show me a vertical passing game and buy yourself time in the pocket, and Eagles fans and I will be happy. You don't have to even carry the team on your shoulders for the win or even have a 3 TD performance. Heck, don't score a TD, but have a great completion percentage and get DeSean Jackson a big game, my fantasy team needs it.
