I do think Philly overrated Kolb. I could be wrong but I don't think that Miami would have taken Kolb. But if he's the guy Reid wanted, great. And there may be other teams that were looking at Kolb as a high pick but I just don't remember that much buzz around him going into the draft. (Although I'll grant you that doesn't mean all that much.)

But look at Philly's position at that point, they've got their franchise guy and they've got a backup that led them to the playoffs when the franchise guy was hurt (Feeley.) They needed playmakers and they've got some other big needs on defense as well.

Instead of getting someone who could help immediately, they invested in a risky guy that may or may not transition well to the pros and definitely won't be helping them anytime soon. And they miss the playoffs for only the 3rd time in the 9 years of Reid's tenure but the 2nd time in 3 years.

If they take someone else there, maybe they make the playoffs. Maybe not. But if I'm an Eagles fan (and I am, kinda), I consider that choice a mistake... at least in the short term.

But that's just me.
