Seattle Seahawks Shouldn’t Offer 1st Round Pick for Eagles QB Kevin Kolb

Published on July 10, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

According to Len Pasquarelli of CBSSports.com, the Seattle Seahawks should think twice about offering a first round draft pick for Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb.

Pasquarelli lists a number of teams who traded for a veteran starting quarterback and didn’t experience success with that team, including the Kansas City Chiefs with Trent Green, the Buffalo Bills with Drew Bledsoe, the Miami Dolphins with Daunte Culpepper, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with Jake Plummer, the Baltimore Ravens with Steve McNair, the Houston Texans with Matt Schaub, and the Washington Redskins with Donovan McNabb, as well as possibly the Kansas City Chiefs with Matt Cassel, the Chicago Bears with Jay Cutler, the Denver Broncos with Kyle Orton, and the Oakland Raiders with Jason Campbell.

Personally, I think Pasquarelli’s arguments are terrible. First of all, I hesitate to call a quarterback with seven career starts a “veteran.” I don’t care if he’s entering his fifth season in the league. Kevin Kolb is not a veteran quarterback.

Second of all, a lot of those quarterbacks listed by Pasquarelli experienced success. Schaub in Houston. Green in KC. McNair in Baltimore. Cassel in KC. Cutler in Chicago.

No, none of the quarterbacks won a Super Bowl. No, they didn’t throw for 5000 yards and 40 touchdowns. But most of them had success.

Kolb’s situation is completely different. Whether or not Kolb is worth a first round draft pick is debatable. But trading for Kolb would be giving him an opportunity to BEGIN his career, not EXTEND his career, like the majority of the quarterbacks on Pasquarelli’s list.
