Eagles Notebook: Took Kolb a while to come out of concussion fog | Philadelphia Daily News | 10/22/2010
"I went into our quarterback coach's [James Urban] office, it was on Thursday," after the hit, 3 days before the Detroit game, Kolb said. "He said, 'Hey, in nickel, they do a two-for-two swap, they take out a 'backer and a defensive lineman, they bring in a pass-rusher and they bring in a nickel back.' I had no idea what nickel even was. That's when I was like, 'OK, they're doing the right thing' [keeping Kolb out of that game]. Before that, you want to get out there, of course," especially after the terrible offensive performance early against Green Bay.

I've already set the ESPN.com record for consecutive obits on the Cowboys' season, but I think a loss to the Giants on Sunday would even make Jones, the Tony Robbins of the NFL, hang his head in resignation. I'm at a complete loss for why the Cowboys are three-point favorites to win this game. (Have four of their five games been blacked out in Vegas?)
