It was Aaron Rodgers vs. Brett Favre all over again. With the Philadelphia Eagles looking to move forward and to their future with a trade of their veteran quarterback to the Washington Redskins, they turned to their young quarterback who had been waiting in the wings.The only question is, can Kevin Kolb make the kind of fantasy impact in his first year that Aaron Rodgers did when Green Bay traded Favre in 2008?
Unlikely, but it’s hard to deny that the potential is definitely there. And really, arguably more-so than it was for Rodgers.
Green Bay was still a pass-first team with great offenses weapons, but their offensive line was (and still is) a bit shaky, and it’s extremely arguable that Kolb is walking into an offense with much more explosive passing options.
