The Linc - How Valuable Is Kevin Kolb?

Kolb a Valuable Commodity in Today’s NFL — McNabb or Kolb | Philadelphia Eagles Blog
In today’s pass-happy NFL, having that elusive "Quarterback of the Future" is perhaps the biggest difference between haves and have-nots.

Four possible destinations for Donovan McNabb
Barring a labor negotiating disaster that keeps the NFL from having any sort of trading or free agency period this year, quarterback Donovan McNabb will be a very expensive one-year rental for the Washington Redskins. The price will end up being a 2010 second-round pick and a 2011 fourth-rounder for 13 games and 14 touchdown passes.
