Eagles' Kevin Kolb Focused On Cowboys, Not Looking To Future - SB Nation Philly
With Michael Vick’s injury and the fact that this weekend’s game against the Cowboys will have no effect on the Eagles playoff seeding, all signs are pointing to Kevin Kolb getting his fifth start of the season.

John Smallwood: Sitting starters is right move for Eagles against Cowboys | Philadelphia Daily News | 12/30/2010
This is a legitimate "need the rest" situation for the Eagles. They are a beat-up football team without the depth to compensate for losing another starter. This is about as fragile as a Reid team has been entering the playoffs. It has the potential to make some noise, but it has to have all the pieces in place.

Tuesday night football delivers for NBC and may give NFL something to think about | Company Town | Los Angeles Times
Thanks to a blizzard, the National Football League got a look at how a game would do on Tuesday night, and the numbers were pretty impressive. Almost 24 million people tuned in to NBC and saw the Minnesota Vikings upset the Philadelphia Eagles. That's the biggest audience any network has gotten on a Tuesday this season.

The Eagles' chances as a 3-seed | Philly | 12/30/2010
In four of the last five seasons, and six of the last 10, a three-seed or lower has reached the Super Bowl. In two of the last three seasons, the NFC champ has not been a team that had a first-round bye. Only four times in the past 10 seasons have BOTH Super Bowl participants had byes in the first round. Of course, last year was the exception as both top seeds (the Saints and the Colts) got there.

Kolb calmly handles role of forgotten man
Before Michael Vick soared back into the spotlight, Kevin Kolb was the Eagles' QB. Now back on the bench, Kolb has quietly accepted his role while supporting the team. By Reuben Frank

Eagles need to take a 'bye' week - NFC East Blog - ESPN
For at least a day, one of the best rivalries in the league should take a back seat to common sense. This should be one last chance to showcase Kolb to quarterback-needy teams around the league, and there are several. Nothing against young John Skelton in Arizona, but surely Ken Whisenhunt would prefer to have Kolb zinging the ball downfield to Larry Fitzgerald. I've heard rumblings the Cardinals might have interest in Donovan McNabb, but that may change if their personnel folks gain access to Redskins game film from this season. And despite what Joe Webb just did to the Eagles, the Vikings would be wise to consider Kolb as a backup plan to Brett Favre's next un-retirement party.
