Many Buffalo Bills fans were looking to the NCAA for their next quarterback of the future.
Well Bills fans can forget about that as their quarterback is now in Philadelphia.
The Philadelphia Eagles shocked the National Football League as Eagles head coach Andy Reid announced Tuesday evening that quarterback Michael Vick would be the starting quarterback. Barring a injury or ineffectiveness by Vick quarterback Kevin Kolb’s career with the Eagles is now done.
That sound that you hear is everyone in Bills nation drooling over the possibility of finally getting a decent quarterback. Hopefully, general manager Buddy Nix was on the phone with the Eagles asking what their price is for Kolb. At this point even if it was for two first round draft picks I would make the deal.
According to Aaron Schatz of Football Outsiders on WGR 550, Kolb projected to be the 10th ranked quarterback in the NFL this year. The last time the Bills had a quarterback like that was probably when Jim Kelly. With Bills quarterback Trent Edwards being a huge flop in the first two weeks of the NFL regular season hearing stats like that is enough of a reason to make a trade.
In the end, hopefully the Bills get Kolb before someone else does.
