Kolb knew what was coming from Eagles

Kevin Kolb didn’t get to make his return to Philadelphia
on the field. The former Eagles quarterback was in street
clothes during Arizona’s 21-17 win over the Eagles at
Lincoln Financial Field.

But that doesn’t mean Kolb didn’t have an effect on the
game. NFL teams often rely on former players from the
teams that they’re facing. Philadelphia made Kolb’s input
even more valuable than it normally would have been.


They didn’t change their signals from when Kolb was
wearing the midnight green of the Eagles.

appeared on Philadelphia sports radio station
and told Anthony Gargano and Glen Macnow he
knew what was coming from Michael Vick and Philadelphia.

“During the two-minute drill, you almost feel guilty,”
Kolb said. “Mike’s sitting there giving the signals, and
I’m standing there on our sidelines, screaming at our
corners, ‘Hey it’s a go ball, hey he’s running a screen,
hey he’s running a slant.'”

Kolb did downplay his knowledge’s influence on the game.
“How much of an effect do I really have?” he said. “I’m
screaming to one guy. He may hear me, he may not. Luckily
for us at that point, the crowd was pretty dead and some
of our guys could maybe hear it.”
