While we have already read how Kevin Kolb has played much, much better in his last regular season appearances, there certainly are naysayers still, even here in this community. Pro Football Focus is one of those groups that are not sold on Kolb. In fact, when PFF refocused the game between the Cardinals and Patriots from Sunday.
They called him "calamitous.":
He may have led (in the loosest possible way) his team to another victory, but this display was exactly what we've come to expect from Kevin Kolb (-2.9). He was skittish in the pocket, several times leaving a clean pocket to invite pressure onto him. He showed poor judgment, throwing a late ball to his fullback that could have easily been intercepted. Most of all he was just inaccurate, missing on a variety of passes which brought drives to an end (most notably missing an open Todd Heap for a surefire touchdown with 7:51 to go in Q1). What made it all the more baffling was that he wasn't making tough throws or challenging close coverage. Only five of his attempts went further than 10 yards in the air, which makes the 55.6% completion percentage all the worse. A victory can often make you ignore it, but this was a deeply uninspiring performance, from a deeply uninspiring player.
He did not turn the ball over, and he has not thrown an interception is his last 68 attempts. He has not, though, been perfect.
Which lenses are you looking through when you see Kolb play? Talk about it!
