Kevin Kolb Speaks After Andy Reid Confirms Him As Eagles Week 3 Starter

QB Kevin Kolb has already been named the Eagles week 3 starter after missing last Sunday with a concussion. Of course in his one game absence Michael Vick threw for 284 yards and a pair of touchdowns making the status of Kolb as the Eagles starter a lot more interesting.

Kolb talked on Monday after Andy Reid confirmed he would be the week 3 starter.

"I mean, I know I didn't play very well that first half. We didn't play very well and Mike's done a great job. I'm really proud of him the way he came in and led us in that second half and then led us to the victory. That was a good team win yesterday. All I can do is deal with what's on the field, and that's me getting out there.

Kolb understands that the fans and media are talking about it, and he understands where the whole issues comes from -- Vick played well and he didn't, albeit in limited action.

SB Nation's Bleeding Green Nation has the full run down on what Kolb had to say about being the Eagles starter moving forward.
