We Are in Kevin Kolb’s Head, And That’s Not a Good Thing

Unsure whether or not he will play this week, Kevin Kolb spoke to the media today.  Remember that confident, unflappable guy we all during the summer?  Well, he’s gone.  Philly is in his head. [Philly Sports Daily]

“I don’t want to get too high, I don’t want to get too low – I know that’s y’alls mentality – but I think especially in this town and in this market, when you lose a couple you can get way down. When you play well, people can build you up. So I just want to stay [at] that level of confidence, and make sure I prepare the same week in, week out. 

I think Philly can be a little bit of a different place, but lucky for me I don’t know what it’s like anywhere else. This is where I’m at; this is where I was born as an NFL player basically, so I’m used to it. It can be good or bad.”


The mere fact that he is saying this stuff means we are in his head.  We got in Donovan McNabb’s head, and we all know how that turned out.

One guy whose head we’re not in?  Michael Vick.  He seems like he is completely unfazed by a year’s worth of bashing and scrutiny.  Of course, given his history, he may very well be a sociopath, so… there's that to consider.

  1. I disagree. To me it sounds like he knows how Philly fans react and he just has to stay even keel.

  2. I agree with Silent. Kolb saying that he understands the Philly atmosphere is not an admission of being intimidated. And Vick is a waste of time, no matter how well he plays now it is a step back for the future!

  3. Don’t hate on Kolb dude. We are in Vick’s head as well, he just has different ways of showing it. He likes to be involved in inappropriate birthday bashes and shootings to expell his frustration. It’s hard to believe a city that is allegedly so sport “smart” is wrapping their arms around a 30 year old mcnabb clone when we just kicked the older version to the street after 10 years of bitching and complaining. Just sayin.

  4. i’m taking those quotes and looking at his in pocket performance during his first two games, and, to me, it seems like he’s feeling the pressure. his tone has changed from what it was in august. not saying he’s crumbling, but it’s in his head.
