Seattle is out of the Kevin Kolb race

AP

Tarvaris Jackson is headed to the Seahawks.

While Seattle should be in the market for another quarterback to join Charlie Whitehurst and Jackson, that quarterback will not be Kevin Kolb. Jason La Canfora has confirmed what seemed clear enough: The Seahawks are out of the Kevin Kolb sweepstakes.

Don’t underestimate the impact this will make on the Eagles and Cardinals.  Philadelphia just lost major leverage in their pursuit to deal Kolb. We haven’t heard of any other team willing to make a significant offer for Kolb.

The Cardinals have other options, primarily Kyle Orton and Matt Hasselbeck. It makes sense that the Eagles aren’t rushing into anything with Kolb, but they also don’t want to be too patient and get caught missing out on a deal.

  1. Worse comes to worse, the Eagles will keep Kolb. They won’t give him away.

    Although, I think he’s overvalued at this time.

  2. I said this before, I’ll say it again.

    Dealing Kolb would be a great thing.

    Not dealing Kolb would be a great thing.

    With the way Vick plays…….nuff said.

  3. I think at this moment they seem to be outhinking themselves. DRC is a playmaker in a need position. If you watched the eagles last year you know that they need playmakers. They have alot of decent young players and just need a couple playmakers. I hope to hear they have pulled the trigger by tomorrow and maybe with a 3-4 round pick in addition. I mean Kolb is a QB that has had some pretty impressive games so far. They should be able to shake that loose at least.

  4. eagles will keep kolb and franchise him next year and trade him. cardinals will suck just like they always do, sorry except that one year they went 8 and 8 and got the superbowl

  5. Eagles blew their chance at a first and third round pick by not trading Kolb to Seattle. I hope the Cardinals trade for Orton and only give up a third round pick.

  6. really, I mean, this can’t be over. It ain’t just Charlie and TJack going to camp to see who starts. These guys have to have a trick up their sleeve.

  7. Seattle should have traded Whitehurst and a bag of used Shawn Kemp condoms for Kolb. Although they would have had a rough go of it tracking down used Kemp condoms :/

  8. Tavaris Jackson! Looks like the Seahawks will be in great position to solve their QB situation…with Andrew Luck.

  9. How is it exactly that a quarterback is going to get traded to a new team six weeks before the season starts, learn a new offense, get his timing down with guys he’s never played with before and be expected to be effective?

    It’s in Philly’s best interest to trade Kolb before he walks, but for any team to think he’s going to come in and be a miracle worker this year, they’re crazy.

  10. The signed Matt Leinart too!?!? When will the jokes stop? Is the the NCAA able to revoke the 2010 Divsion Champion title if they pick up Reggie Bush? My Hawks are destined to run ahead of the pack in the Luck Sweepstakes!

  11. Bevell is going to get fired over this.

    When the pressure is on and the team needs a big drive, Jackson gets “hurt”. He cannot handle any pressure.

    Tarvaris Jackson will be “hurt” before week 4.
    He has never played in more than 8 consecutive games in 5 years.

    Poor Pete Carroll will have to explain many times why Tarvaris can’t learn the playbook and why the Seahawks HAVE TO run such a simplified offense.

    Seattle is going to hate the jump pass real soon.

    The Seahawks have really set their franchise backwards with this really stupid decision.

  12. ESPN is announcing that the Seahawks have also signed Matt Leinart.

    That’s some depth chart you’ve got there, Hawk fans.

  13. Philly should keep Kolb, who’s longer term value would be higher and trade Vick, who’s short term value would be higher. But since I hate the Eagles…go on and trade Kolb!

  14. So let me get this straight……..One of the early moves in free agency is TJack to the Seahawks and now they are out of the Kolb race? lmmfao!!!!! If anything they are more in the Kolb race now then they were before! Tjack and Chuckie Whitehurst…….. hahahahahaha there is no way that is how they go into training camp. At the very least Matt has to stay now out of pure sympathy for that poor franchise.

  15. This has to be bad for Philly but to be completely honest i couldn’t care less about this particular deal. It’s just so nice to mbe reading about deals and training camps vs the lockout bs we have been subjected to over the last 4 months.

  16. There’s waaaay too much hype on Kolb. I don’t think he would have thrown for 300 yds against the saints if they weren’t forced to…unless you count the return yds for Sharper on ANOTHER one of Kolb’s pick sixes.

  17. another exmaple of reid screwing up a trade possibilities due to his ridiculous demands. (e.g. sheldon brown, lito sheppard trade a few years ago)

    So Tavaris Jackson is the answer? Mercy. This can’t be over…

    —————————————————————————————————-

    dont worry its not over…..Seattle just brought in Matt Leinart….now its officially over!

  19. I wish people would freaking relax. The ‘Hawks signing these guys in no way means they think they’re “the answer”. It means they’re going to push Whitehurst to win the starting job and if they all fail they’ll take one of the top QB’s next year.

    It’s clear that the Eagles are being little bitches about Kolb and nobody wants to pay their price. I bet Arizona opts for Orton and screws over the Eagles royally.

    that idea right there shows a complete misunderstanding of Andy Reid and what hes willing to do.

    He doesnt just want a first rounder or significant player value in return for Kolb because hes “being a little bitch” (I guess nowdays being a little bitch is defined as not handing over something thats yours just because someone else wants it but isnt willing to pay…..sounds backwards to me LOL)…..its because that is where he values Kolb and wont settle for giving him away.

    The Cardinals, Seahawks and any other team can do nothing to “screw the Eagles royally” in relation to Kolb. Reid knows he has a dynamic but very injury prone QB who subjects himself to huge hits. You act as if the Cards and Seahawks coming in with weakass lowball offers then backing off screws Reid—-like he has to take something for Kolb. Yea, because having a player that knows this system front to back completely, all the players and has played at a high level the majority of time to back up a All Pro but very injury prone QB is the definition of “getting screwed”……oh no, its too much, we must trade Kolb—lets give him away or we’re screwed. Oh no, thats right, lets just do what we planned to and test the market and if the offers dont come in keep him and have great depth and ability at the most important position in the league for 2011. WE’RE SCREWED!!! WHY DID WE HAVE TO BE SUCH LITTLE BITCHES AND NOT GIVE KOLB AWAY TO THESE SUCK-ASS TEAMS???!? lmao

  21. It made sense to trade Kolb during the draft but if we can’t get something decent from Arizona (the player or a 1) they should just keep him. We’d have to sign some turd like Vince Young anyway.
