Warner on Kevin Kolb: ‘Guy you could build around’

Kurt Warner is aware of what Kevin Kolb can do.

“You see the athleticism, you see the big arm, you see the
ability to make big plays, which he’s done,” the former
Cardinals QB told Sports 620 KTAR’s Gambo and Ash Tuesday.
“But you’ve also seen, at times, maybe a lack of vision,
being able to see the whole field and make all the
decisions that need to be made.

“But you’ve got to remember, this guy’s only been in the
league a couple of years and only played a few games.”

And therein lies the rub when it comes to the Cardinals’ –
– or any team’s — pursuit of the 26-year-old Eagles
backup: he just hasn’t played enough to know just how good
he is or will be.

What we have seen of Kolb, so far, is mediocrity. He’s
thrown 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions, and has a
career QB rating of 73.2. Having sat behind Donovan McNabb
for years and learned from Andy Reid, there are many who
believe Kolb is a budding star, needing only an
opportunity to showcase his ability. He had a chance,
albeit a brief one, last season. He started the first game
of the year, got injured, and watched Michael Vick take
the job and, literally, run with it. Warner, though, said
Reid, a noted quarterback guru, must see something in
Kolb.
