Philadel­phia ea­gles

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

With­out fran­chise quar­ter­back Dono­van McNabb, the Ea­gles hand the reins to Kevin Kolb, a three-year backup. Kolb is well-versed in the team’s play­book and has some ex­cel­lent re­ceivers in DeSean Jack­son, Jeremy Ma­clin and tight end Brent Celek.

Coach Andy Reid will have to work with Kolb and get the team’s act to­gether in train­ing camp with the fresh-faced of­fense, be­cause come Week 1, Philadel­phia’s no­to­ri­ous fans may turn on the 25-year-old faster than Santa Claus at a half­time show.
