Jerry Jones Thinks The Eagles Are Better Off With Kolb Over McNabb

New, 4 comments

It seems like everyone has had an opinion this offseason about the Eagles decision to trade Donovan McNabb and install Kevin Kolb as the starter. The latest? Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones who thinks the Eagles will be more consistent with Kolb.

`McNabb helped create those big swings in our games over the last 10 years,’’ Jones said. ``When he played well, it was like throwing the knockout punch. When he didn’t, you were able to throw the knockout punch. I don’t see that now (with Kolb). I think Kolb and the way they’re going about it now, you won’t have those big swings one way or the other. I think every game with them is going to be a battle. Because of Kolb and because the makeup of the rest of their team is solid. And their coach, there is not a better coach in the NFL than Andy (Reid).’’

If Kolb does turn out to be more consistent than McNabb, we’ll actually have Jerry Jones to thank. His 2007 draft day trade with the Eagles brought Kolb(and Stewart Bradley) to Philly.
