Default Re: Sage want a chance to be a starter.

As far as Kolb not being under center enough sounds like a fair and legitimate concern.
But if you have watched the guy for four years or if you dig deeper, the concern is not well-founded, or at least, it's not a red flag.

Even if one assumes that Kolb operated under center only half of the time, he still had 782 snaps there on passing plays.

And let's assume that the other QBs lined up under center 2/3 of the time.
Here are some comparisons:

Flacco: 625 snaps
Brohm: 790
Russell: 530
Stanton: 564
Your Royal Highness: 479
Leinart 830
T. jackson (Vikings) 656
Cutler 828
Croyle 579
T. Edwards 475
Clemens (Jets) 670

So you see, with 4 years starting, Kolb had spent plenty of time under center.

Heck, even at 50%, Kolb still had more snaps under center on passing plays than VY (718) and T. Edwards (712) had ever seen their entire collage career no matter where 'em guys lined up.

So I don't see what's the beef with "Kolb not having enough snaps under center", "Kolb needs more reps under center"???
