Hmmmmm. . .Philadelphia. Well, that sounds like a bit of a strange place. The Eagles don't need a starter or anything, as Michael Vick is currently entrenched in that role. However, by all accounts they are ready to ship backup Kevin Kolb out of town to one of a bunch of potential destinations (despite the fact that he probably isn't going to have enough training camp time to effectively learn his new team's playbook with any sort of completeness before the start of the regular season). Why would he be considering Philadelphia?
Well, he knows Andy Reid, and he knows Marty Morninwheg, as Bleeding Green Nation points out. And if the Eagles should trade Kolb, all they would have left on the depth chart is former Northwestern star Mike Kafka, and nobody knows for sure yet whether Kafka can complete the metamorphosis into the kind of quarterback that can win in the NFL.
(See what I did there? Kafka? Metamorphosis? Why are you looking at me like I'm Dennis Miller?)
I will say that, if this actually comes to fruition, I would like to thank Philadelphia for being kind enough to throw themselves on the proverbial grenade and keep the entire issue away from Minnesota.
