Kevin Kolb’s Smugness, Brodrick Bunkley was Traded Again, and Asante Samuel isn’t Happy

Welcome to the 2011 NFL offseason!

Maybe it’s because he’s no longer an Eagle, or because he didn’t do shit when he was here, but I feel like Kevin Kolb is quickly developing a smug side. When he was here (you could usually find him on the bench), he seemed like a really likable, down to earth guy. Well, now, perhaps because of his swinging dick and or fat wallet, he’s starting to play the role of "heel."

Over the weekend, he told reporters in Arizona that his new city was really clean. “Granted, I was coming from Philadelphia,” he said.

Then, as if pointing out the obvious (face it, parts of the city are shitholes) wasn’t annoying enough, Kolb then took to the airwaves in Phoenix to talk about Andy Reid and his decision to let this dog loose: [Deadspin]

"Well a couple of different things. Number one there is a great quarterback there right now and him and I competed for a full year last year. He's a star. Obviously we know what he can do. Secondly, I think Andy did it for me. When I first brought it up to him he said ‘you ain't going no where.' He was joking obviously, but we had a good relationship like that. I am one of his guys. He drafted me there. We became very close, but I think he did it for me. I think he knew it was time. He knew I was ready. He saw me through last year. The highs and the lows and said ‘alright it's time to unleash you.' That's what makes a great coach. He's going to do what is right for the players and that's why he has a long tenure in the NFL."


Unleash the Kolb. Angry puppies get unleashed too, though they don’t scare anybody and wind up only hurting themselves. But I suppose we’re not allowed to use dog references and quarterbacks in the same paragraph. Deadspin has more quotes.

Meanwhile, in other ex-Eagle news, Brodrick Bunkley didn’t report to camp after being traded to Cleveland… so the Eagles had to trade him to Denver. The NFL, folks.

Finally, Asante Samuel doesn’t sound too happy about the less-than-ringing endorsement the Eagles have given him: [Philly Sports Daily]

Meeting the media for the first time since arriving to training camp, he was asked if he has requested a trade. He responded with, “No comment.”

That is a strong comment within itself.

“I want to be where I’m wanted,” said Samuel. “If I’m not appreciated here, then life goes on.

  1. I Can’t Believe poor Cleveland 1st LBJ in 2010 and Now Dissed BY Broderick Bunkley NO Respect. Kevin Kolb probably Doesn’t realize Phoenix is the Kidnapping capital of the AMERICAS.. Oh well

  2. Kolb really has that David Bell, Pat Burrell, Jason Michaels 2004 haircut going for him.

  3. I’ve been a defender of Kevin Kolb for the past two seasons. With that said, if he starts bad mouthing this city or the fans, I’ll burn his ass to the ground. Don’t forget where you came from you prick. A lot of people were riding his jock and dissing McNabb, he shouldn’t forget that. Actually, I have a tough time defending the city, it is pretty much a shit hole, but it’s the shit hole I’m used to.

  4. I saw nothing wrong at all with what Kolb said. He was basically saying that Any Reid did him a favor by trading him & allowing him to be a starting QB in the league.
    I think you’re reading something into his statement that wasn’t really there.

  5. Now Asante? Yeah, he’s being a tad un-classy.
    Like it’s our fault that he’s the 3rd best CB on this team right now? He’s about as good @ tackling as Andy Reid is at calling run plays.

  6. Agree with Andy, here.
    What the heck did the guy say that was so wrong? Nothing. Face it, he was drafted while this was clearly McNabb’s team. Then the team is handed over to him. Then Vick plays insane. It’s a pretty shitty situation that he handed pretty well.
    Really, I think you’re just enjoying being the little prick blogger.

  7. I’ve never commented here before (or anywhere else for that matter) but CB is my favorite blog and I check in here at least 20 times a day. I usually think the writing is better than most of the “pros” (read: hacks) who cover the beat for the papers and I usually find Kyle to be quite insightful and funny. That being said, Kyle needs to take a chill pill and a vacation. I love ya brother, but how you can read anything negative in Kolb’s comments is beyond me. That’s standard I-just-got-traded press conference responses from an athelete. I think this crazy (awesome!) weekend fried your brain.

  8. Kolb’s not a dick. The guy got tooled around here, I’m hoping he becomes a pro-bowler, nothing a but class and competitiveness from that guy

  9. i didn’t enjoy his “philly is a dirty city” comment, nor his smug comment about being unleashed. like really, what have you ever done to A) earn your money or B) become “unleashed”? that said, i changed the title from dick to smug, probably a strong choice of words on my part at 6 p.m.

  10. Yeah I don’t think Kolb’s comments were bad. I mean Philly is pretty dirty, and now he has a chance to start and he’s excited and he thinks Reid did him a favor.
    As far as Asante goes, he also said some really good things surrounding this: “It’s wonderful to be back. I’m home. Ready to go to work. Happy to be here.”

  11. I critisize Laddie when and how it’s needed, with an aire of levaty. No reason to ream another arse hole out of the poor peg-boy. After all your blogger here is an inveterate lush. His tender young mind has been pickled by vodtka and pineapple juice—The Drink of Champion Angry Bloggers.
    And he has a point about Kolb’s dirty city implacation. You wanna talk about dirty. Go down to that shyteheel part of Texas he’s from. Cow paddies every where you turn. But those Texans think nothing about it, like it’s manna from a perverse heaven.
    My prediction is that he’ll wind-up pro fishing in a few years, never living up to any expectations in the NFL. Hahahahahah

  12. Samuels goes nowhere and is still the starter. Jesus you guys get excited about new things too easily. Last year you all were on his dick now they bring in other players he is the forgotten man. smh… Give the dude a break now i see why he rarely talks to you stupid media folks.

  13. Meh! I’m not gonna get worked up over civic cleaniness as perceived by others. If you look hard enough, you could find a superfund in Beverly Hills. So what if Kolb took a cheap shot at Philly after landing in his new nest, in other words, big deal. He wasn’t the first athlete to diss the town, and he damn sure won’t be the last.

  14. Hmm is anyone else having problems with the pictures on this blog loading? I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.|
