The lockout is probably the greatest thing ever to happen to Kevin Kolb. With each passing day, his value seems to grow more and more.

But, he's been specifically attached to one team in recent days: the Arizona Cardinals. In fact, some are calling Kolb to the Cards a "slam dunk."

"Arizona ... a slam dunk as much as you can have a slam dunk," ESPN's Sal Paolantonio told Peter King (on Sirius Radio, I believe, though I cannot confirm).

There was actually some chatter that a Kolb-Cards deal was already done, with the principle parts being Kolb for Patrick Peterson (aka "2011 first-rounder") and a 2012 second-rounder.

Kevin Kolb: So Hot Right Now
That rumor was probably based on Roger Goodell's recent statements that teams could trade during the brief period in between lockouts. However, Andy Reid shot the rumor out of the sky before it really every took its metaphorical wings and started flapping too high.

Still, even if there isn't a deal now, there's almost certainly going to be one before 2011 starts. There are too many teams that have a need at quarterback -- yes, still! -- and too many good fits for Kolb for the Eagles to wait and try to utilize him as a backup.

And yes, for those wondering, yes, every story about the NFL eventually ends up in some sort of discussion about Kolb's value to other teams.

Yeah, they're building for the future alright. Trading anything more than a pick next year for an unproven QB with way too much hype surrounding him is ludicrous to me. To even think of sending PP to the Eagles for this guy must be making Andy Reid laugh laugh laugh. I'll give you a statistical breakdown:

QB 1 - 194 for 319 (60.8%) 6.53 YPA 11TD 14INT 73.2 rating

QB 2 - 582 for 953 (61.1%) 6.55 YPA 27 TD 33 INT 75.3 rating

Based on stats, you could say you'd rather have QB #2; but it would be more accurate to say they are pretty equal, with QB #2 obviously having a greater body of work.

QB #1 is Kevin Kolb.

QB # 2 is Chad Henne.

Would you trade Patrick Peterson and another high pick for Chad Henne?

Didn't think so. And he played for a worse team than Kolb, as well. Kolb simply hasn't done enough to warrant all the stuff being thrown around his name. He simply hasn't proven enough.

I am not even a little bit surprised by this revelation; if it is indeed a revelation.  However, I think they are crazy to give more than a pick in next years draft for him.  Giving up Peterson is just plain crazy.

Micheal Vick will never win a superbowl.  Maybe Kolb isn't the answer either.  I still don't think Kolb has ever been given a real shot at being the starter in Philly.  Since I love watching Philly fans cry and whine I really hope that Kolb lights it up in Arizona, If this trade does happen.
