Eagles QB Kevin Kolb

August 19 Philadelphia Daily News

“The quarterback headed toward his Chevy truck with the Texas license plate, parked behind the Lehigh field house.

Ask Kevin Kolb what he learned after the 3 1/2-week, 36-practice training camp, and there’s no hesitation in his voice.

“The biggest thing I found out in this team is everybody pulls each other up,” Kolb said. “It’s not one guy. It’s not somebody feeling pressure. When somebody feels it, boom, somebody pulls the next guy along, and that’s what you want with a team. That’s how you become the best, and we have that with everybody here.”

Year 1 at Lehigh with Kolb as the starting quarterback ended yesterday with a light practice closed to the public. Even the media was asked to stay off the sidelines. But amid a mad postpractice scramble to shower and hit the road for the NovaCare Complex, where training camp resumes today, Kolb said he accomplished exactly what he wanted at camp.

“It’s been a very successful camp, especially the last week, 6, 7 days have been very good,” Kolb said. “We just want to keep moving forward. We just want to take it one step at a time, and our next step is going to Cincinnati [for tomorrow’s preseason game] and getting on the road and proving ourselves on the road, playing against a pretty good defense and trying to put the whole package together.”

Atop the objective list for the game against the Bengals is red-zone improvement, by far the first-team offense’s biggest problem in a no-touchdown performance last week against the Jaguars.”
