Kolb = Rodgers.. I'm not buying it!




OK so we all are seeing the comparisons fly the blogs and websites about how Kevin Kolb is the next Aaron Rodgers or some other illogical leap of faith. If he is great news for us but here is what I think a lot of people are losing in the translation.... The 2008 Packers are not the 2010 Eagles. The Packers had a horrible O-line that year, their defense perfected the "give em 7 technique".  There was an article recently on ESPN by Clayton (sorry no link) where he stated if Kevin Kolb is as good as Aaron Rodgers was in his first year the Eagles can be expected to go 5-11 or 6-10 at best. I just want to put this out there that no matter how closely Kolb may play to Rodgers in his first year, it is not a one man sport. This Eagles team is much better than the Packers were in Rodgers first year. The defense is suspect in a few positions (FS,RCB,LB (depending on how Bradley comes back and Sims and Fokou turn out). but we have arguably one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL. If I was a first year starting QB in the NFL there are probably only 5 more squads I would rather start for. Our O-line is, for the most part, a proven quality squad. Center is a concern but we dont know how that plays out until it does play out. Anyway I just wanted to put my 2 cents out there. The Kevin Kolb = Aaron Rodgers comparisons are ridiculous and the more I see them the more I think we need another HGH story. So I pose this question to my fellow Bird fans... Is the comparison legit? Should it be the Packers vs. the Eagles, or is the NFL sports world just bored with the off-season and looking for a cheap story to print. The slow news days are killing me can't wait for the season to get here.

 

 

EDIT 29MAY : Found the link least anyone didn't think the Clayton comment was reliable...
