Kevin Kolb on Michael Vick: "I love him"

Count Eagles first-string quarterback Kevin Kolb among those who support Eagles second-string quarterback Michael Vick.

“He’s one of my better friends on the team,” Kolb said of Vick, per the Philadelphia Inquirer. “I love him.”

Kolb says he and Vick have been texting in the weeks since Vick’s dogfighting co-defendant Quanis Phillips was shot outside Vick’s birthday party, and he says he thinks people are wrong to assume the worst about Vick.

“I just told him that it was unfortunate what he had to go through,” Kolb said. “I just said, ‘If there’s anything I can do, whatever is I don’t care, just holler.’ And, of course, he said, ‘I appreciate it.’”

Of course, this isn’t something Vick “had to go through.” It’s something Vick is going through because he, at a bare minimum, decided to have a party that he acknowledges he never should have had, which was attended by someone he’s prohibited by law from associating with.

But considering that Vick’s teammates unanimously selected Vick as the recipient of their Ed Block Courage Award last season, it should come as no surprise that they’re continuing to support him now, with Kolb leading the way.

“I think people misunderstand Michael a little bit,” Kolb said. “They don’t understand how good of a guy he is.”

    I honestly don’t know which makes me feel sicker…the stuff that Vick did to the dogs, or the crazy support the idiots on the Eagles give to him…with lines like “They don’t understand how good of a guy he is” and those morons giving him the Ed Block courage award for putting up with being an ex-felon making millions of dollars to play in 3 plays a game…I just don’t know what this world has come to.

  3. ZombieRevolution says: Jul 14, 2010 1:39 PM

    How dare Vick’s teammates support him. Don’t they know he is the MOST EVIL person on the earth and simply cannot change. He is going to hell. Don’t thye know that PFT is pretty sure the Eagles are close to releasing him? Why support him when he is going to be released?
    How about this Florio and the rest of the PFT staff- since you have so many league/team/player sources that you contact Vick and set up an interview so you can hit him with all of the vemon you have and see if he changes you mind or validates your opinion. Or you can just sit at your keyboard typing endlessly away and doing nothing in the end.

  4. jwill007 says: Jul 14, 2010 1:40 PM

    Good stuff Kolb….Im not an Eagles fan but I respect a man who has his own opinion who has obviously forgiven the man unlike Florio and 10,000,000 followers….Keep in mind act the same way if your family member catches a case….I respect Vick for admitting I he should have never had the party in the 1st place…so just make better decisions moving forward….
    An American with his own mind hiw own opinion and forgiving….Thats a true AMERICAN! All of these other MOFO’s are Aliens…..

  5. BenRapistberger says: Jul 14, 2010 1:40 PM

    You’re not gonna love him once the ignorant Philly fans start screaming his name after your first 2 INT game.

    Hooyah! City of Brotherly Love baby!

  7. Jaymelee1 says: Jul 14, 2010 1:41 PM

    Seriously, Kolb is an idiot too! This isn’t something Vick had to go through, its something he did to himself. Someday Vick needs to learn the lesson to make the right choices. Did he have anything to do with the shooting, no, but then he should have known better to be in that situation, at the club, with those people. I don’t care who the people are to you, if he hasn’t learned by now that some people are bad for you he never will.

  8. CJ SPILLER says: Jul 14, 2010 1:43 PM

    “He’s one of my better friends on the team,” Kolb said of Vick, per the Philadelphia Inquirer. “I love him.” ”I want to tune his meat whistle”.

  9. Chapnasty2 says: Jul 14, 2010 1:44 PM

    In other words: “I am affraid to end up like QP so I am just going to say all this nice stuff about Mike.”
    No one misunderstands how “good” of a guy he is. In fact we all understand it quite clearly which is why everyone (except a few racists) is against him.

  10. bigrig says: Jul 14, 2010 1:45 PM

    Kolb loves him because he knows Vick isn’t a threat to take his job.

  11. Hearitfortheboys says: Jul 14, 2010 1:46 PM

    Hm. Torture kill a few dogs to “teach” them to be meaner (never mind the evil, as anyone thought about the logic in that?) and people will “misunderstand” you.

  12. godofwine says: Jul 14, 2010 1:50 PM

    well, the Mike Vick haters are coming! The Mike Vick haters are coming. As Brutal said in The Green Mile, “He paid what he owed. He’s square with the house again.” But you people…
    What do you mean, ‘you people’.
    You people keep wanting him to fail. I guess you people don’t believe in second and/or third chances until YOU PEOPLE need them, huh?
    Yeah, he killed dogs. Before. In his past. He hasn’t killed any in the last 3 years plus?
    Did he kill YOUR dog? That would be the only reason that you should still be mad at him. Did he waste a chance? Yes, he did. He lost a life in the Super Mario Brothers game of life. I still don’t understand why you people STILL hate him so much. Only after murdering a person should a person still receive this much hate 3-3.5 years after the fact. But an animal, as long as it wasn’t YOUR animal shouldn’t still make people mad after 3-3.5 years of not doing it again.
    Did he screw up? Yes. But he is 29 (now 30). How many mistakes did YOU make at 29 or 30? I’m sure many of you have gotten second, third or even fourth chances. Let the man live. He paid what he owed. He’s square with the house again.

  14. The Briggadier says: Jul 14, 2010 1:50 PM

    Keep Kolb’s comments in persepctive. Kolb is a very smart guy, which is clear in his interviews. He has a vested interest in staying positive and supporting the people on his team.
    If he is going to be the leader McNabb bever was, Kolb has to get the players on his side. Part of doing that is paying the right kind of service via the media. Kolb does it very well. As soon as they cut Vick or whatever, I garauntee that Kolb will say soemthing like, “I wish Mike the best and hope he ends up playing for a team this year. He’s a great athlete and has the ability to be a starting quarterback in this league.”
    It’s all about posturing.

  15. SterilizeTHenry says: Jul 14, 2010 1:50 PM

    Kolb should support his teammate. There is nothing wrong with that.
    However, it is wrong that Philly fans boo a great player and model citizen, Donovan McNabb, yet they give Mike Vick a standing ovation when he comes out. Idiots.
    Its also wrong that the same people that cheer for Vick (a criminal) are probably the same people that hate Tim Tebow (a great role model and outstanding person in general).

  16. jebdamone says: Jul 14, 2010 1:51 PM

    i don’t think that vick is a bad person, he is just obviously not the most intelligent, doesn’t make very good decisions, and seems to surround himself with people that do not have his best interests in mind.

    Michael Vick said he loved dogs as well. We all know how that ended up.

  20. downwithdansnyder says: Jul 14, 2010 2:00 PM

    Of course he loves him. As a starting quarterback I”d love the back-up I knew was no threat to take my job too. LOL. Put someone “real” behind Kolb and I’m sure there wouldn’t be as much love…

  21. Other Bears says: Jul 14, 2010 2:00 PM

    “I love him” = “I love the fact that he is the #2 QB on this team and he is absolutely no threat to my starting job.”
    Kolb wants Vick to get through this and still be the guy behind him putting zero pressure on him.

  22. Jon Evans says: Jul 14, 2010 2:00 PM

    I would actually put money on the fact that out of every person who says vick is an idiot, dumb, unintelligent etc.. a large percent have less of an education than he does.

  25. HarrisonHits says: Jul 14, 2010 2:02 PM

    Is Kolb out of his mind or just another Vick enabler and apologist ?
    And yes I am a hater and proud of it. Those of you who embrace a piece of human fecal matter like Vick are the ones with a problem, not me.

  26. Wrathchild says: Jul 14, 2010 2:03 PM

    Thats it everybody. Trash the guy for standing up for his friend.
    @Chapnasty2 – Thats right. Only Black people support him and only white people dislike him right?
    Why do these boards always turn into the NAACP vs. Tea Party? It’s like there is never any middle ground here.

    @godofwine:
    First of all, I don’t hate Mike Vick. I don’t think he is a person of good character, and I don’t respect him very much because he was born with a world of talent and has done everything he could to throw it away.
    But enough of “he made a mistake” nonsense. Seriously. Going to a dog fight is a mistake. Running a dog fighting ring over a period of years is a conscious decision to lead a lawless life. Not to mention:
    -torturing the dogs in unspeakable ways, including dogs that weren’t even fighters
    -lying to law enforcement and the owner of his team
    -failing repeated drug tests, including while out on bail awaiting sentencing
    -defrauding investors in his companies out of millions
    -knowingly spreading herpes
    -half heartedly making the minimal effort necessary to comply with the community service part of his sentence
    Yes, I made mistakes when I was 29. But I didn’t run an organized crime ring or knowingly spread incurable disease of get pleasure out of electrocuting and crushing the skulls of animals.
    And while we’re at it- stop it “his slate is clean”. His slate will be clean when his full sentence is completed in 2012 and not a minute sooner.

  31. Meat Tuperello says: Jul 14, 2010 2:06 PM

    Yeah Vick is a great guy.
    It’s obvious he isn’t intelligent, and it’s obvious that he is a sick sadistic POS.

  36. hakim1 says: Jul 14, 2010 2:12 PM

    Got a lot of respect for Kolb. He didn’t have to say anything but he encouraged his brother!! A lot of people who comment on these blogs sound like they have so much hate in their hearts! Its ok to disagree but they put to much emotion in to it.

  37. John El Way says: Jul 14, 2010 2:15 PM

    I couldn’t care less about forgiving, did his time, blah blah blah. I just hate Vick because he is a very stupid person and has no common sense. Now Kolb, when are you going bar hopping with Vince Young?

    @SterilizeTHenry -
    I see we’re back to making assumptions about people. I happen to like both Vick and Tebow. In fact (using your method of debate) I would be willing to bet that Tebow also supports Vick and is rooting for him to succeed.

  40. RyanT. says: Jul 14, 2010 2:16 PM

    This news will put Vick’s rabid supporters on these boards in a conundrum: how do they continue to bash Kolb and somehow agree with Kolb for having Vick’s back?
    And, it also makes clear that Kevin Kolb isn’t the least bit scared of Vick taking his job! NFL QB’s love backups who are no threat to displace them.

  41. ganggreen67 says: Jul 14, 2010 2:20 PM

    What Michael Vick was truly disgusting and inhumane. Unlike 99% of other professional athletes who get in trouble with the law, Vick actually payed his time rightfully so in prison. But how about people like Donte Stallworth who was driving drunk and high and kills a man? What does he get? A slap on the wrist. Despite this birthday party non-sense, no charges are being formally pursued. I believe with Kevin Kolb supporting him shows a class act on Kolbs behalf and on the Eagles behalf. As teammates, they should have a bond like this. I hope Kolb and Vick both have a hell of a season. Lets go Birds!

  42. Chapnasty2 says: Jul 14, 2010 2:22 PM

    @ birdman
    First let me clear up some ignorance… the tea party isn’t racist regardless of what the NAACP and MSNBC tells you. In fact there is a santcion called the “Black Tea Party”. Second, I was stating the race part because of stupidrednecks and those like him who come on here and bash us white people for disliking Vick and saying the only reason why we hate him is because we are white. Come on man, you have been here just as long as me, you have to pick up on these things!

    “I think people misunderstand Michael a little bit,” Kolb said. “They don’t understand how good of a guy he is.”
    It’s not a matter of how “good a guy” he is. It’s a matter of how stupid he is for continuing to surround himself with thugs and idiots. He needs to leave the Tidewater Virginia area and never look back. There are too many people here that don’t have his best interests in mind.

  46. RyanT. says: Jul 14, 2010 2:26 PM

    This is just another reason that Jeff Lurie and Andy Reid should be ashamed of themselves!
    By enabling Mike Vick and protecting this dog torturing felon, you put Eagles players in an uncomfortable and untenable position: they have to defend Mike Vick on pains of being considered a bad teammate!
    Jeff Lurie, what you have done to the reputation of the Philadelphia Eagles, is disgusting and amoral!
    You own the team, but you are turning them into a disgrace!
    Jeff Lurie sale the Eagles and go back to Boston with your liberal white guilt complex!

    “I just told him that it was unfortunate what he had to go through,” Kolb said. “I just said, ‘If there’s anything I can do, whatever is I don’t care, just holler.’ And, of course, he said, ‘I appreciate it.’”
    ====================
    How hard do you think Vick and his posse laughed when Kevin Kolb, possibly the whitest man in America, texted “holler” to him?
    And all the girlies say “I’m pretty fly for a white guy”!

  49. sand0 says: Jul 14, 2010 2:32 PM

    I hate when people make comments like “what he had to go through”. Technically it is correct. Michael Vick has experienced hardship in his life no doubt about it. But when it is all of your own doing…
    Personally I don’t get all that worked up when people torture animals because our farmers and food companies have been doing this for thousands of years more or less. But in those cases there is some end justified by the means.
    Vick was torturing dogs to death seemingly just for the pleasure of letting out that aggression on them. This is something that good guy’s rarely if ever do. Usually the deep down selfish malicious psycho types are able to easily put on a nice guy front while performing great atrocities when given the chance.
    To summarize I don’t really give a crap what Vick did necessarily but it speaks volume to his quality of character being extremely low class.

    VICK’s actions were disgusting and he deserved jail time. but redemption does exist.
    there aint a team in the league that is gonna be able to handle Kolb and this offense. he’s no jo mantanna,(yet) but how u gonna cover 3 good WR and then big Brent Celek in the middle. & even if you do that we got Shady outta the back field / oh yeah , Weaver+Bell+Scott can just truck your LBs all game, after the biggest OL in the NFC pummels your DL

  54. Stone says: Jul 14, 2010 2:38 PM

    Vick is a f$cking ignorant peasant and Goodell should have banned him from the NFL when he had the chance. Obviously the guy hasn’t changed. I wouldn’t be shocked at all if he started up dog fighting again once he’s done with the NFL. Vick is going to be broke and on the street in ten years or he’ll be moving from house to house and allowing banks to foreclose on him. He can’t be trusted, bottom line. Kevin Kolb should wake up and have some intelligence and class. Act like a Manning, Elway, or Montana type and don’t make stupid comments like this about your criminal teammates. Grow up Kolb, its not cool to hang out and “be down” with hoods.

    ========================
    And for the millionth time- it is operated as a night club after a certain hour. Excerpt from AP story:
    Allen Fabijan, spokesman for Guadalajara Mexican restaurant and NIGHTCLUB, said Wednesday that time-stamped footage from a surveillance camera outside the entrance of the club shows a car with Vick inside leaving at 2:07 a.m. — about 4 minutes before the shooting a block away.
    And what the hell would the difference be, anyway? Vick has hosted, or signed up to host and then didn’t show up at, other parties that were definitely at clubs.
    And while we are nitpicking- Vick did not “rent out” the Gaudalajara for a birthday party- He promoted an “open to the public” event with a $30 cover charge to make money- the birthday part was secondary.

    First of all, I’m a die hard Eagles fan and I support Michael Vick even though he made a mistake. You know alot of you guys attacking him for his poor judgement but you know nobody’s perfect in this world. He made some wrong decisions in his life but I forgive him. Everybody makes mistakes so to all the Michael Vick haters outthere that wants to judge for his actions remember the bible judege ye not or you will be judge so basically We can’t judge anybody for the mistakes we made the only person that will judge anybody is God so you Michael Vick haters just to shut up and let God do his job Peace!!!!!!!!!

  61. Chapnasty2 says: Jul 14, 2010 2:53 PM

    @ myeagles
    You make a good argument for your team being successful which is far more than a lot of eagles fans on here can say. However, being the owner of an extremely calm and timid pitt bull I have had since he was 6 weeks old, you are clearly wrong in your assumption of the breed. It is owners like Vick that destroy a dog, regardless of the breed. Besides I know more people who have been bitten by cocker spaniels than pitt bulls.

    “Jon Evans says:

    If you’re able to grasp that “attending a school” and “getting an education” can be very different things, you’ll understand why your money is going to be at serious risk.
    If you can’t grasp that, I’ll bet Vick has more of an edumacation than you do.

    although many people breed them to fight, they were brought to the States as working dogs, a TRUE APBT is too big to fight
    do your homework before you speak
    i’d also like to point out that my “mean machines” (even the past fighters i adopted) are all therapy dogs, and work their weekends at various hospitals in New Jersey putting smiles on faces of the elderly and sick

    Matlock,
    What type of education does Vick h ave? 25 hours at Virginia Tech?
    He was close to flunking out of Va Tech which was the main reason he left school for the draft to start with.
    Dog Fighting didn’t count as an elective at Va Tech.

    @Thomas White:
    Well, I hope God can tell the difference between a mistake and a lifetime lived outside of the law, and the difference between poor judgement and years and years of conscious decisions to do horrible things both to dogs (torturing them) and people (knowingly giving them an incurable disease- Herpes)
    Because apparently you can’t.
    And please, all of you, stop characterizing everyone who doesn’t support Mike Vick as a “hater”. I don’t hate him because I don’t know him. But I certainly believe, based upon a mountain of available evidence, that he is sorely lacking in character and not worthy of my respect.

    lifelong eagles fan but wish they never signed him, bet they do too now…
    from a PR standpoint he’s a nightmare.
    from a football standpoint he’s unnecessary.
    Not really sure why they are keeping him around.

    “Located near your Virginia inn, BBOnline recommends Guadalajara Town Center as one of the best venues in Virginia Beach Nightlife. Guadalajara has several locations throughout the city as well as neighboring areas but the Town Center location is known for being one of the hottest places to party. Not only can guests choose from a Mexican cuisine, but they can party the night away with the area’s hottest DJs. Known affectionately by locals as “Guads,” the venue has an upscale decor and dress code. The dancefloor is ample and three bars are available serving a full selection of mixed drinks and cocktails. The music at Guadalajara is a broad mixture of dance, hip hop and Latin styles. After spending a fun day at the beach, it is not unusual to rub shoulders with local personalities, socialites, and celebrities at Guadalajara. The venue hours are from 7 PM to 2 AM.”
    Sounds like a night club!

    Uh, “Holler” is a word created by white southerners!
    Black southerners use the word too, but it is by no means “Ebonics.”
    ==============
    Uh…..holler is a word that was created centuries ago when the english language was created, along with literally millions of other words. Dictionary.com traces it back to 1690. Not sure white southerners can take credit for it.
    My attempt at humor wasn’t really referring to the origin of the word, but more of a reference to one way it is often used today. I simply found humor in a Kevin Kolb saying “holler” or maybe even “holla” to Mike Vick.
    See- I just thought about it again and giggled to myself a little.

    You make a good argument for your team being successful which is far more than a lot of eagles fans on here can say. However, being the owner of an extremely calm and timid pitt bull I have had since he was 6 weeks old, you are clearly wrong in your assumption of the breed. It is owners like Vick that destroy a dog, regardless of the breed. Besides I know more people who have been bitten by cocker spaniels than pitt bulls.
    ==================================
    Your knowledge and defense of the breed would make a lot more sense if you actually knew how to SPELL IT correctly.

    “But how about people like Donte Stallworth who was driving drunk and high and kills a man? What does he get? A slap on the wrist”
    @ganggreen67,
    Trust a Jets fan to compare too utterly and totally different situation as if they were the same thing.
    Vick ran a gambling ring and killed and maimed dogs for years. Stallworth certainly made a mistake and should have gotten more time than he did, but the guy he hit also had a hand in what happened by crossing heavy traffic where he should not have done so. The victim’s family also agreed to the settlement.
    Invalid comparison. Jets fans, making mentally deficient squirrels everywhere look intelligent.

  92. Hawkeye says: Jul 14, 2010 4:40 PM

    “the guy he hit also had a hand in what happened by crossing heavy traffic where he should not have done so”.
    Stallworth was high on pot, hung over from a night on the town, the accident happened at 7AM in the morning and there was little traffic. He also saw the guy and honked his horn. I guess Stallworth never heard of brakes! Not to mention he paid the victims family off or else he would still be in jail.

    I hate Mike Vick and will all ways hate that scummy POS. The problem is that he shouldn’t have been at a party in the first place. Not a public party anyway. He has had more then 3 chances (weedy water bottle, Ron Mexico incident, dog fighting, and a party where someone got shot that he had a dispute with that person, he flipped off the Falcons fans) and its time for the Eagles and the NFL to stop giving this spoiled star a break when he never learns from his mistakes. The Eagles need to replace him now before he does something dumb and gets banned or suspended. Its going to happen, cut this pile of crap now before it really effects the team.

    “1879. The Civil War is over, and the resulting economic explosion spurs the great migration West. Farmers, ranchers, prospectors, killers and thieves seek their fortunes. Cattle drovers turn cow towns into armed camps, with murder rates higher than those of modern day New York or Los Angeles. Out of this chaos comes legendary lawman Wyatt Earp (Kurt Russell), retiring his badge and gun to start a peaceful life with his family. Earp’s friend John, “Doc” Holliday (Val Kilmer), a Southern gentleman turned gunman and gambler also travels West, hoping the dry climate will relieve his tuberculosis. Silver is discovered in Arizona. Tombstone becomes queen of the boom towns, where the latest Paris fashions are sold from the backs of wagons. Attracted to this atmosphere of greed over one hundred exiled Texas outlaws band together to form the ruthless gang recognized by the red sashes they wear. They emerge as the earliest example of organized crime in America. They call themselves… the Cowboys.”

    —————————————-
    Not 100% accurate.
    There was also a traffic video of the accident & the authorities admit the victim wasn’t in a crosswalk, he darted out into the street in front of Stallworth. The guy ran right out in front of Donte’s car. He stopped & called 911. He manned up immediately, which is more than you can say for most NFL players that get in trouble.
    http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=4394333
    That was a one time mistake. MV did the things he did repeatedly for 6 years. Intent is big here, Donte didn’t intend to hurt anyone or thing – MV intended to hurt, torture & kill. MV intended to infect unsuspecting women with VD.
    Hard to believe that anyone that would inflict the type misery MV did for personal gratification or gain, is in anyway a good guy…

    What would be nice would be if you nitwits could compare Vick to someone who has done something GOOD for his community or the public in general.

    I am not sure what kind of checkered past you are harbouring, but I have never so much as thought about torturing an animal to death, never mind sticking an electrode to a dog’s testicles as seeing how long it takes to die, hanging one, or kidnapping people’s pets, taping their mouths’ shut and using them as “bait” to train a fighting dog to be more vicious.
    Maybe in the ghetto Dawgkilla is “square with the house.” Up on the hill where I live however, he is nothing more than a sociopathic douchebag deserving of nothing but the deepest contempt and loathing. To be perfectly honest, the world would be a much better place if Dawgkilla, you and the rest of his lowlife, racist apologists were fed a lead pill and buried in an unmarked pit someplace. It’s because of people like you that child molesters get a second, third and fouth chance to indulge their sick perversions once they serve their time and are “square with the house”.

    ********
    Ray Lewis was never convicted of anything. Dawgkilla admitted to running a dogfighting ring and did federal time as a result. Additionally, Dawgkilla mercilessly tortured at least eight dogs to death in the most inhumane manner possible simply for kicks. He deserved the full 40 years he could have been sentenced to in Virginia, but the state prosecuter was a putz and let this subhuman douchebag walk. As a result, he never served a day in jail for the most heinous of his crimes, and has never demonstrated even a shred of remorse for them. Had he not been caught, he’d still be taking part in such sadistic practices to this day. It wasn’t a one-time mistake made as the result of too much Grey Goose on a summer afternoon with a couple of his homeboys, this was a repeated behaviour pattern thay demonstrates a fairly accurate representation of who Michael Vick truly is.
