One thing you notice about Kevin Kolb: He understands all parts of his job, which includes critical analysis and fans getting upset with his play. Maybe he spent too much time in Philadelphia, long known for the collective critical eye it casts on its local athletes. All I know is there are plenty of players who say they get it when it sure doesn’t seem like they do, and Kolb isn’t one of them.
(Heck, on Monday, when it seemed like every question was about what was going wrong, one question halfway talked about taking something good from the close wins, and Kolb said he appreciated at everyone trying to be positive. And he was genuine.)
So today, when he was asked about fans criticizing his play, he was matter-of-fact. “I’ve been around long enough to know everybody has doubts,” Kolb said. “It’s the same thing if we were going the other way. If we were 4-0, (the talk would be) we’d be going to the Super Bowl, which isn’t the truth either.”
P.S. For those who want to watch a “sneak peek” of tomorrow night’s “A Football Life” about Kurt Warner, click here now (the link will be good until 7 p.m. Thursday night, when the episode of Warner will be airing on the NFL Network).
