Interested?

“I love it here, as everybody knows,” Kolb said. “My family’s settled in here. I would love to be starting here. But I want to be starting somewhere.”

Kolb was asked if he could handle another season as a backup in Philadelphia.

“I can’t answer that question,” Kolb said.
[/quote] - PFT

[quote]
Kolb wants to start and whether that’s for the Eagles or not, he will let coach Andy Reid know that during a scheduled Monday meeting. The 26-year-old has been the Eagles' backup for most of four seasons.

Asked what would be a best-case scenario for next season, Kolb said, “To start.”[/quote] - [url=http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/inq-eagles/Kolb_wants_to_start_or_wants_out.html#ixzz1AbhEiau1]Philly.com[/url]

Under contract and Philly is asking for to much.

I don't know. Everyone keeps talking about a franchise QB and check this out:

[quote]
If a team was to offer at least a first-round pick in return – and there are at least a dozen teams in need of a starting quarterback – the Eagles may be willing to make a trade.[/quote]

But, with ours being the #1, I'd say they'd need to give up a little more as well.

Im pretty sure if we are we smart and willing to deal someone like james anderson which is risky but I'd say worth it with a future pick or something it could happen. And he is probably the best FA out there I think (just my opinion) he may have a little Aaron Rodgers in him especially given a chance see last years 3 300 yard games.

Kolb is not a free agent.

Also, you may be right that a player and some picks would work but with this team having the holes it does, there are really limited positions we want to be giving up talent at imo.

I believe this is pretty unrealistic, but maybe our first round pick and one of our third round picks for Kolb and their second round pick.

I'd rather take a talent like AJ Green this year. Let see what Clausen can do with some new coaches next year. If he tanks then we can be in a position to draft Luck or Barkley next year. I don't think Kolb is better than either of those, plus we'd have presumably have Smitty, AJ Green, Lafell, and Gettis to help out the young QB.

Kolb must be pissed Vick took his job but hey we could use him in carolina as a backup till pickles well fucks up!

This year just i'snt good for free agent quarterbacks Mcnabb would want 9 million from what i've read... Who would be a good veteran to bring in?

I know I dont want to loose a major plus but I am banking on T. Davis coiming back at a high level. I have faith.

Im hoping for maybe next years 2nd and one of our 3rd call me crazy and dont throw me to the fire but we are desperate and he might really take us to another level. I feel like he miht be better than cassel and with this Ramsell dude from San diego he could really breakout.

Man Im not trying to insult you but are you serious, if he tanks come on now Im not saying he is garbage but damn did you watch EVERY GAME like I did his hands are so small he often fumbled snaps. He missed open recievers from his first start up to week 17. He skipped the ball off the ground on smoke routes basic easy shit I dont know but how does that change.

A 1st rounder for Kolb is too risky. He basically looked like Matt Moore did at the end of last year. Just not enough to gamble on.

I don't want him he's similar to Matt Moore. I'm sure Denver will be calling him soon though.

Maybe they'll take a really high second round p--Oh. Wait. :(

I like Kolb, but I liked what I saw from Moore last season too. I'd like to see Moore and Clausen with a new offense to see how they will perform. We can't give up our first and we have little else to bargain with.

No way we dont bring in a veteran QB next season. Orton and Bulger being the main two canidates.

73.2 QB rating = #1 overall pick + 3rd? You guys are crazy :lol:

Maybe a conditional pick next year, 1st - 3rd depending on his performance. No way in hell do I give up the first overall unless they throw Desean Jackson in with him.

Hell no. DEFINITELY not this year's #1 overall and I'd be hard pressed to accept any 1st rounder for him....maybe like someone said, a James Anderson and a 2nd or something like that...but no first round pick for Kolb...

I wouldn't even wanna do our #1 overall for Kolb and their first round pick

What about a player and a future second??? And I have forgotten Orton may be out there also he is a very effecient qb.

Some team is going to give Philly way too much for a guy who is, realistically, unproven. Let's hope that team is not Carolina.

Philly's asking price is going to be way too high, IMO
