Eagles vs Chiefs: Kevin Kolb Proves His Worth | NFL Player Rankings
This game was all about the Eagles and their strong bounce back play from last week’s loss against the Saints. DeSean Jackson play is smoking hot and should be started every week by fantasy football owners.
Kevin Kolb, DeSean Jackson and Brent Celek have Great Games
Much has been made about Donovan McNabb’s backup Kevin Kolb, and if he is a worthy player to have on the roster. Especially when the Eagles now have Michael Vick on the roster as he is now officially back in an NFL jersey.
Today, Kolb was 24 of 34 passing for 327 yards, two touchdown passes and no interceptions. This was the kind of game that will make everyone in the Eagles organization feel better about Kolb and his abilities to run the offense.
Kolb found the Eagles two top targets in Jackson ( 6 catches, 149 yards and a TD) and tight end Brent Celek ( 8 catches, 104 yards and a TD) all game long.
This coming week the Eagles are on a bye week and the team has already announced that MacNabb will be back in week five.
If McNabb should get injured again, except Kolb to get the start over Vick as he is the more polished quarterback at this time.
Chiefs Just Suck
It was nice to see Matt Cassel throw two touchdowns this week, but he only had 90 yards passing. This team needs help in a lot of areas, and it doesn’t help that Dwayne Bowe was out and good defensive players as well.
I still believe Larry Johnson can be a productive fantasy football running back, but he probably won’t be a good play until later in the season.
