Eagles playing game of chicken with the Cardinals

As teams begin to bow out of the Kevin Kolb sweepstakes it would seem a deal between Philadelphia and Arizona is imminent.

However, as of Tuesday afternoon no move had been made, and it could be because the Eagles are holding things up.

Philly is still trying to leverage AZ on kolb. Thats a pricey game to play.less than a minute ago via Echofon Favorite Retweet Reply

It makes sense that the Eagles would want to get as much as they can from the Cardinals, just as the Cards would prefer to surrender as little as possible for Kolb.

But who has the leverage right now? At first it seemed like the Eagles, as they had the QB who every team wanted. A bidding war was expected, one the Cardinals seemed willing to join.

But teams have begun to fill their respective holes at QB, leaving the Cardinals as the only team left with a spot still available for Kolb.
