Just like every off-season the future of Donovan McNabb and the Eagles is up in the air. Kevin Kolb was drafted to be the future of the Eagles, but when does the future start? This season coming up? Well that’s what Kolb is thinking. He is ready to be the starter, wants to be the starter and now the drama begins, again. Don’t forget to add in the Michael Vick factor also. Three quarterbacks that could all start in the NFL on the same roster heading into the off-season.
The real winner in this one is the Eagles. They can get rid of at least one of the QB’s and still be ok, but which one? The staple in McNabb, the future in Kolb or the wild card, Mike Vick. Also in the mix is the fact that all three of the quarterbacks are in their last year of their contracts. Maybe the winner of the Eagles QB lottery is the one that gets the first contract extension. Check back in soon for the winner of the new contract and the job of Eagles starting quarterback.
Kevin Kolb joined Howard Eskin and Ike Reese on WIP in Philadelphia and talked about the quarterback triangle going on in Philadelphia, whether or not he has thought about playing for another tea,m and if the Eagles are currently talking to him about signing an extension with the team.
Asked how tough it is to not be the quarterback of the Eagles right now after starting all your life:
“It’s tough because I felt like last year was the best I have ever been. I felt like I was prepared for the season and I trained hard in the off-season. I had an injury in the preseason, my other two games were pretty good and of course getting to play there early and proving that I can do it, I wish I could have played last year. With that being said I am going to wish it even more this year. Its tough, but I know it’s an even harder situation for the Eagles. There are three of us out there that can play so I am going to keep their feeling s in mind and try to remain positive no matter what happens.”
Asked if he ever thought he should play somewhere else besides Philadelphia:
“No, I never did. Because I feel like I fit in this system so well and not just the system but the coaching staff and the players and the personnel all the way around. You know even on the other side of the building with the business side and all of that. I just feel like our personalities really fit well together, we work hard together and I look forward to taking over this thing one day and working with those guys. I would never wish myself to be anywhere else.”
Asked if any of his agents talked to the Eagles about his future:
“No, they have not. You know I don’t really talk to my agent that much about it because I know ultimately it doesn’t have anything to do with what we say. We are kind of just sitting back right now letting things iron out , we know there is still some time here. I am sure there will be a phone call sometime in the near future or a meeting, but as of right now we are just going to let it iron out and have faith that the right decision is going to be made.”
So the deal with a story saying the Eagles have talked to your people about an extension is not true:
“We haven’t even talked to them as far as I know. That totally blew me away whenever that was reported because it was obviously false. Yeah that has not been discussed yet.”
