Eagles unveil Kevin Kolb statue outside Lincoln Financial Field

The Philadelphia Eagles took another step today to show their confidence in untested new starting quarterback Kevin Kolb, unveiling a massive, 75-foot tall bronze statue of the three-year backup outside of the main entrance to Lincoln Financial Field. "We have a lot of confidence in Kevin," said head coach Andy Reid. "And we want people to know that." At the base of the Kolb statue is a large sign that reads: "Kevin Kolb: The Greatest Philadelphia Eagle Ever." The team also announced it is changing the name of the quarterback position to The Kolb. "The statue is a huge honor for me," said Kolb. "It's probably the highlight of my career. Probably even more than any of my four career touchdown passes."
