Before you guys totally slam me please just bare in mind that I have only been watching football a year and I amnot from the US
Like a lot of people I understood that a change would have to happen with Mcnabb aging and entering the last year of his contract. But I disliked Kolb's comment whilst Mcnabb was still with the Eagles. I remember him saying this:
“Obviously my goal is to be the starter and to start for 16 games and to lead this team as far as we can go. Personally, I don’t have a lot of personal goals right now, they’re more team-oriented, besides me getting on the field and proving I can take over this thing.”
At this point Mcnabb was still the starter. To me this just sounded arrogant and cocky. All NFL players go though hours of media training and I found it strange that he did not just say something like as far as he knows Mcnabb is still the starting QB of this franchise and just change the subject.
Now I have to support this guy if he is going to lead us to the superbowl so I welcome your comments.
