    Re: Kolb - Philly or not, I want to start

    I'm sorry to interfere but I don't see why everyone is so interested in Kolb as a starter... If someone has seen the dump-off king actually play can someone please give me a good reason why we should have him. He is not worth more than a 4th rounder in my opinion I have more faith in someone like devlin than Kolb

    Re: Kolb - Philly or not, I want to start

    didnt Kolb throw for like 300yds in every game he came in at the end of last season? I think he has the skills and talent to be worthy of a shot. He sat behind McNabb and when he finally got the job he got hurt and then never got back after Vick turned on.

    Now i heard a rumor that philly wants like two 1st rounders which if thats the case then hell no... but if we can get a reasonable asking price, i would take it. Hes an immediate upgrade.

    I think its not right of me to include his performance during the last game of the season vs. the Cowboys where all the backups played from what I recall (did not watch game). However he threw 3 picks and was sacked 5 times against a Dallas Defense that was way below standards in 2011. However he played between Week 4-7 for Vick while he was nursing his hurt ribs.

    He went 2-2 beating the Niners (Weak Team) and Atlanta (Rather Impressive) losing to Redskins (only put up 12 points that game) and Titans (Played a dink and dunk game and only had 1 play over 20+ yards)

    My opinion is simply that this guy is very iffy still after 5 years. Maybe its just me but I don't know if this guy can pan out or if a first or second round pick is worth getting someone who we don't expect to be "A Top Tier" quarterback.

    I'm really not sure where you are getting him to be a "dump off king". From my recollection didn't he throw for more than 400 yards two games straight? He may or not be what we are looking for but I have a hard time saying he is a dump off king. You don't throw for 400 yards being a dump off king.

    Personally I like Kolb because teams will have to respect the pass. That in itself can open things up for AP. However, if I had my choice I would go after Orton with our 2nd round pick. The problem is supply and demand. Right now there is a heavy demand for decent QBs and the supply of them are slim. So if the Vikings were to part ways with some draft picks to get their QB they will have to give a little more than what the QB may be worth.

    Re: Kolb - Philly or not, I want to start

    I was not that impressed by Kolb this year. There was a reason he lost his job to Michael Vick. I think he would be a viable option but definitely not worth all that we would have to give up for him. If there is one thing we can learn from the Packers this year is that draft picks are crucial. I don't think that we should look at any quarterback thats going to need us to give up picks for. I would like to have Kolb or Orton but both come with heavy price tags and we need all the draft picks we can get at this point. If we trade down and pick up more picks than obviously that could change my opinion but for now it looks like our best option from a veteran standpoint is going to be VY when he gets released. Don't have to give up draft picks and can probably sign him to an incentive driven contract to make sure we don't invest too much in a big question quarterback. But in my opinion, DRAFT DRAFT DRAFT. Offensive line, safety, quarterback.

    Uh ... He lost his job to Vick because of a concussion, not poor play. He didn't get it back because Vick played out of his mind.

    Also ... Most do not have Orton costing all that much to go get.

    What you have to remember is ALL draft picks are a crap shoot. I don't care who they are. No one knows how they will play in the NFL until they play in the NFL. At least with Orton, we know we are getting a very good game managing QB that can also win with his arm. I agree Kolb is still a question mark but my main question with the previous poster was he was calling him a dink and dunk king. IMO you can't dink and dunk to consistent 300+ yards per game passing. Sure there is always YAC but hardly ever that much to consititute a consistent 300 yard passer as a dink and dunk passer.
