    That seems to be the case.

    Apparently the Browns called the Eagles yesterday to inquire about the availability of Kolb.

    Kolb to the Browns would make all kinds of sense.

    Would for the Browns, wouldn't for the Eagles. Vick is a free agent at the end of the season, and the Iggles would be forced to pay him whatever he wants to stay or be faced with the prospect of signing another FA to play QB or drafting a kid and rebuilding.

    Kolb is insurance against that and leverage for Philly in any negotiations with Vick (if he plays well enough to keep around).

    And, of course, there's also the ever-present worry that Vick takes a bad hit while running and you're down to playing Mike Kafka for the rest of the season. Not a good situation.

    Having a starter as your backup QB is a luxury. If Kolb is really that good then the Eagles would be better off trading him and getting help somewhere. Having him sit on the bench is just a waste, and could be harmful if he's disgruntled (and he probably should be).

    Anybody else a ESPN "NFL Match-up" fan, and sick of it being on at 7:30 in the morning. I don't know about you, but I am not up at 7:30 on a Sunday morning. Supposedly, it's moving to 8:30 on ESPN2 next season, so whatever.

    Player-for-player in-season swaps are pretty rare, if I remember right. A team acquiring Kolb is going to want to give draft picks, not currently productive talent, certainly not a good starting QB's worth (which is what the Eagles would insist on).

    Anyway, quarterbacks get hurt so frequently that the luxury often turns to a necessity. Unless someone blows them away with an offer, I'd let the situation ride if I was the Eagles GM. There are plenty of scenarios where Kolb takes the job back this season or is their guy for next season. If none of those come to pass, then trade him before the next draft.

    I thought I'd put this here.

    Bill Polian says the 18 game schedule is a fait accompli. Good news or overkill?

    For those who aren't up on their French, he means it's a "done deal".

    I'm not so sure we'll see an 18 game schedule next year

    It may be a shortened season but there'll be a season and a Super Bowl

    Anyone know the status of the NFL's deal with CBS and Fox? If they go to 18 games that's a windfall for those two networks. Can the owners renegotiate their deals with the networks? If it doesn't increase their TV money then there's little reason for the owners to push this

    If there isn't a season next year I wonder what that would do to Super Bowl host cities? Indy is hosting next year, so if there's not a season to they just bump everyone down one or is Indy out of luck?

    I would think they are out of luck. LOF might have a boat show scheduled for Super Bowl Sunday 2012.
