The options

Over the last few days, I have widely supported drafting Jake Locker (Don't shoot me, Kdean).  But belive it or not, throughout the season, I've actually supported another QB move more.  I've been a huge fan of the Kevin Kolb trade deal.  Yes, it would take a lot to get him, but think about it.  He's proven he can be a starter, hasn't he(I know there's the whole "He played against bad pass-defenses thing but that's better than what we can do now)?  Let's take a look at his 2010 stats:

Kevin Kolb

Passer rating: 85.3

Yards: 1,035

Touchdowns- 6

Interceptions- 4

Considering he's only played 5 games this season, that's great!  If Michael Vick hadn't played like, well, Michael Vick in the 2nd game of the season, Kevin Kolb would still be the starter, and would most probably have accumulated even more yards/TD's.  Like I said, I know it would take a ton to get him, but it's worth it if we get a great, talented, and young QB.  Considering he's only 26, that means he's got several years left in him, if not more.  Plus, it's not like we're getting a young QB who hasn't proved himself.

For those of you who say he's only played bad teams, in Week 6, he played the Atlanta Falcons, who are currently tied for 1st in the league record-wise.  In that game, he threw for:

Attempts: 29

Completions: 23

Yards: 326

Completions percentage: 79.3%

Touchdowns- 3

Interceptions- 1

Not bad playing against arguably the NFC's best team.  In fact, as I write this, I'm getting excited just thinking about what Kevin Kolb could do with the talent we have at WR.  Fix up the O-line, and you've got a playoff-contending Offense.

So, what do you think?  Trade huge to get Kevin Kolb?  I don't know what huge means, because I don't know what the Eagles would want for him, but wouldn't it be worth it if we got a proven young QB?
