Philadelphia Eagles Trade Kevin Kolb to Arizona Cardinals

For the Arizona Cardinals, this is a move that could (and should) put them back into contention.

In their first year after Kurt Warner, the Cardinals proved that a potent group of wide receivers led by Larry Fitzgerald means nothing without a competent quarterback.

If your QB smiles (Derek Anderson) as he performs miserably in a crucial Monday Night Football game, your team will finish last in a division where the champion (Seattle Seahawks) finishes 7-9.


With Kolb under center, Arizona should be able to go back to being the high-powered scoring machine it was when Warner was around.

For the Philadelphia Eagles, there's good news and bad news.

The good news is they get Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second-round pick in exchange for Kolb, which should fix a defense that, as Aaron Rodgers proved in the playoffs, needs some help.

The bad news is it leaves the Eagles without a proven backup for Michael Vick. If Vick gets injured (which is anything but unlikely), Philadelphia will be left with one of two rookies under center: Jerrod Johnson or Mike Kafka.

Or Andy Reid could fly out to Mississippi to...

...buy some Wrangler jeans.

In Other News, Plaxico Burress...

...could return to one of his former teams: the Pittsburgh Steelers or New York Giants.

According to a recent report on ESPN's SportsCenter, Burress has narrowed his list to those two teams, leaving the Chicago Bears to, once again, look elsewhere on the free-agent market for a go-to receiver.
