NFL.com blogger Elliott Harrison takes an interesting look at the experienced quarterbacks that are available that a team like the Cardinals could look to to run their offense if a league year ever happens. Harrison agrees that Kolb is likely the hottest commodity out there but he believes it’s based more on what team’s think he is capable of and not exactly on past performance.
In fact, if you check out the graph they put together, Kolb has a worse QB rating than guys like Donovan McNabb, Matt Hasselbeck, Marc Bulger, and Kyle Orton.
Another thing that stood out to me was the fact that McNabb is only seven years older than Kolb. Sure, that could be an entire NFL career, but it just seems less than you always kind of assumed based on the mentor/successor dynamic they had in Philly.
It seems fairly amazing to me how quickly McNabb went from a stud to a guy that it just doesn’t seem like many teams want. I’m very curious to see where Donovan ends up playing next season. Not nearly as interested as Kolb’s landing spot, but interested to see how Five’s legacy plays out.
