It is my opinion that anyone who goes on this site is either very well educated on the NFL or fantasy football, or if not is incredibly bright. Either way, you cannot lose taking their opinions to the bank, and their opinion of new Eagle QB Kevin Kolb is that he’s going to do well this year.
According to our latest poll, which asked which lower-end QB had the best chance to put up numbers in 2010. Out of over 2000 responses, Kolb received 41% of the vote, edging out Joe Flacco, who got 29% of the vote.
I’m placing a higher emphasis on the QBs than ever this year, but I’m not locked into taking one in the first 1-4 rounds if other appealing options at RB, WR, and TE present themselves. In fact, I’m kind of hoping I don’t get “stuck” in the 2nd round or so and feel the need to play it safe taking a Peyton Manning because I love the depth at the position. In addition to the four guys in the poll, my guy Jay Cutler has to be in this conversation, and I’m not even talking about guys like Tony Romo, Brett Favre, and Matt Schaub, who are excellent second tier options.
Here’s the poll results from the site:
Kevin Kolb 41% (882)
Joe Flacco 29% (626)
Carson Palmer 14% (302)
Matt Ryan 15% (327)
Total votes: 2137
So what are your thoughts on Kolb this year? Are you with me that he’s going to be really solid and a top-10 guy this year?
