Okay, we need to talk...


So we're entering the third preseason game and our rookie quarterback is gangbusters. Our starting quarterback has played 12 snaps and thrown for 11 yards. Our incumbent second stringer (if you can call him that) has a broken non-throwing hand and awful tape from week 1 of the preseason. Oh, and then there's Trent Edwards. Are you worried? Are you discouraged?

I'm not, but I think we there's something we've avoided talking about that I think is almost inevitable. What happens when the Arizona Cardinals trade for a guy like Colt McCoy, Tavarius Jackson, or Matt Moore (David "Father Time" Garrard)? Our longtime friend, Kevin Kolb would likely be cut. I'm not saying it's the right move, but you'd have to think the only coach that would give him a shot after his horrid performances in Arizona, would be Andy. On the surface it kind of makes sense. He did put up generally good numbers at times for us (I believe he was the first QB ever to have back-to-back 300 yard games on his first two starts) and knows the system better than Mike Kafka (one year extra on the bench, not to mention one year as a concussion-laden "starter") and is game-tested than Kafka and Foles.

Andy did the same thing A.J. Feeley after trading him for a 2nd round pick (Reggie Brown) from the Dolphins. Why not Kolb, if he feels the Mike Kafka Adventures shouldn't be just around the corner or if he doesn't believe starting Foles early is the answer? What then? I'm not saying Kolb is more attractive then a guy like Colt or Tavarius or even Matt Moore, but there is something to be said about Kolb's knowledge of the system. Injury prone (Andy seems to have a hard on for those guys anyway) or not Kolb, I believe in Andy's mind, would make a great back up at this point his career. If he gets injured on duty, there's always that rookie who outperformed everyone in the preseason.

Do you think, if given the option, we should bring back Kevin Kolb as Mike Vick's backup?
