Explain please. Isn't this what the Texans did with Shaub? Isn't this what the Chiefs did with Cassel? Don't trades for back up QBs happen? He's not Manning or Brady, he's a kid that's played 5 games and doesn't have a very impressive body of work. Teams have a price for players like him. You can use the generic "this isn't madden" comment when referring to absurd trades. This kid is currently a backup QB. Can you explain how your comment is applicable to this situation?
I made the madden comment mostly to be a smartass, but also because you seem to be inventing a trade out of nowhere. Have you read or heard anything that would make you think that the Eagles would be at all interested in trading Kevin Kolb. No, you haven't, because there's no indication that they would even consider it.
Furthermore, we run a completely different offense than the Eagles do, and that alone would probably take at least a year or two for Kolb to get acclimated to before he was really ready to become the full time starter. You don't just plug a player (especially a QB) into a completely different system and have them instantly produce. That's living in Maddenland.
