I've watched every throw Kolb has made in his limited playing time the past 2 years. Let me just say, that he is NOT an upgrade from Alex Smith. And this is coming from one of Alex's biggest critics.
1) Terrible deep ball. Almost Dorsey-like. Complete wobbler.
2) Accuracy is inconsistent, short to intermediate.
3) Has no pocket presence of which to speak of.
This reminds me a lot of the AJ Feeley hype. If you remember, the savvy Eagles front office squirmed a 2nd rounder from the Dolphins for Feeley. Feeley went on to have a terrible year with the Dolphins and wasn't heard from since.
If we trade our 1st for their 1st for Kolb, I will break my wall.
kolb played in a system at houston whee the main play was the bubble screen---as people begrudge alex smith coming from a spread system in college, so did kolb
biggest difference between kolb and alex is that kolb has been under the tuteledge of great coaches who are capable of developing qbs.
Kolb would be a MAJOR uprgrade over any qb weve had on our roster in nearly a decade. He is a perfect fit in our offense, and is young enough to be our franchise qb, while at the same time not setting us back like a rookie qb would do by going through those early growing pains.
I dont want to trade a first, but as i stated in my previous post, would give up a 2011 second, and a pick in the 2012 draft that is performance based
Not having a CBA in place makes it a little more difficult to trade for him, and if that is the case, I think a qb hungry team would,if its after the draft when trades can finally be made, be willing to trade a 2012 1st for him.
