Kolb knows you can’t take any of your time in a starting job for granted and that unless he leads the Eagles to Lombardi Trophy after Lombardi Trophy, it’s just a matter of time before the Eagles are looking for somebody to replace him.
‚ÄúYou‚Äôre just¬†renting time from the NFL. So I want¬†to make this thing¬†count, make a run and go win a Super Bowl,‚Äù said Kolb.
He knows that talking about a Super Bowl Championship is the way to talk here in Philadelphia and if he doesn’t find a way to help this team win it all, then before too long he’ll be wearing another uniform.
“Renting time” is a different way to put it, but it’s accurate.¬† Don’t think that watching Donovan McNabb accomplish all he did and still be traded didn’t make an impression on Kolb.¬† He realizes that going deep in the playoffs and making the Pro Bowl doesn’t mean anything here in Philadelphia.
It’s wise of Kolb to not be making all kinds of grand predictions like some of his teammates because going out there and doing it is enough.
Kolb said McNabb invited him to his youth football clinic which will take place on Saturday, June 12, at the Memorial Sports Complex in Marlton, N.J.
“He called to ask if I could make it,” Kolb said after practice Monday. “I’m going to be doing¬†my own camp so I won’t be able to make it.”
former Eagles teammates Brian Westbrook, Michael Vick, Jeremy Maclin, Todd Herremans, Jamaal Jackson, Jason Avant, Quintin Mikell, Bobby Taylor and Chad Lewis to help out at the camp, as well as several of his new Redskins teammates.
