If the Eagles end up trading Donovan McNabb, Kevin Kolb will step into the starting role. While Kolb doesn't have McNabb's arm strength, at least one NFL scout believes that he'd be better for Philadelphia's system. "He can throw the slant better than McNabb," the scout said. "And that's a throw you'd want to master if you're playing in the traditional West Coast." A former NFL coach added that the only way for the Eagles to find out if Kolb is ready is to simply throw him out there. "He's been trained well, and the position comes naturally to him," said the coach. "I think he has it. But there's really only one way to know for sure, and that's to throw him out there."
