Let the competition heat up


EJ Manuel had his turn on Sunday and capped it off with a great 2 minute drive for a touchdown at the end of the first half. Now, on Friday Kevin Kolb should get his turn as long as he doesn’t tweak his knee before then.
I am really looking forward to seeing how Kolb runs this offense. Don’t get me wrong, I would love to see EJ take control of the Quarterback competition and then lead the team to a winning record in the regular season. But I would also like to see Kevin Kolb do well. Having 2 good quarterbacks on your roster is always better than just 1. ( 3 if you include Tuel who looked pretty good last week as well).
There has been no indication from the coaches yet on how much time each QB will get but I would think that you will have either EJ or Kolb play the first quarter and the other will play the second. Tuel will probably play most of the second half this week.
While Manuel did nothing to hurt his chances last week, he didn’t do much against Indy’s 1st stringers. His 2 minute drive looked great but let’s not forget that it was against the 2nd or 3rd stringers from Indy.
I would like to see Kolb start this week, just to see how he looks against Minnesota’s 1st stringers. That would give us a better idea of where our quarterbacks are in their battle. Then we could compare what EJ did against Indy’s 1st stringers and what Kevin does against Minnesota’s.
Kolb has had a good week at practice, looking good after his knee felt a bit better. Now let’s see how he looks in a game situation.
I can’t wait for Friday, Let’s see the QB competition start to heat up. Let’s hope these 2 really start to push each other so that they both raise their games to the next level.
What do you guys think? What would you like to see happen in the QB competition?
