October 7 Philadelphia Inquirer:
“Kevin Kolb gets another chance this week. He will be the first team quarterback all week and the clear starter heading into Sunday’s game against the 0-4 49ers.
But he said he is focused on the game, not reclaiming the starting job.
“If I get into all that, then I’m focusing on the wrong thing,” Kolb said. “My focus right now is to go beat San Francisco and make sure I do my part to do that.”
Head coach Andy Reid was initially non-committal when asked if Kolb could win the starting job back from the injured Michael Vick, but later told the Inquirer’s Ashley Fox that Vick remains the team’s starter.
Asked if the job was up for grabs, Reid said, “No, (Vick’s) the starting quarterback.”
Reid praised Kolb’s play Sunday, though both he and the quarterback said there were some chances to throw downfield that Kolb missed.
Reid said he does not expect to bring in another quarterback this week, leaving rookie Mike Kafka as Kolb’s only back up.”
