Cardinals Vs. Eagles: Kevin Kolb Discusses Starting QB Situation, Game Plan For Philadelphia

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb went on with Anthony Gargano and Glen Macnow on WIP in Philadelphia to discuss who the starting quarterback is and the team's matchup with his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles, this weekend.

When asked if he is to start come Sunday, Kolb noted that "that's the plan," at least as far as he is concerned:

On if he's going to start Sunday against Philadelphia:

"That's the plan. I mean, that's how I have to approach it. I haven't talked to John or anybody to see how he's feeling, but that is the plan."

In terms of the Eagles, Kolb was asked in he keeps in contact with any of his former teammates in the City of Brotherly Love:

On if he's in communication with some of his former Philadelphia teammates:

"I texted some of the guys last week and was just offering some encouragement. A win is a win. I know everybody wants to talk about the turnovers and winning by one point, but in this league, as a player and a coach, when you're grinding every single game, every week, every game is a tough one in this league, and if you can come out with a victory then who cares how you got it? Obviously it's well-documented that Mike and I are pretty good friends and I'm proud of the way he's handling stuff."

Spending a couple of seasons under Andy Reid in Philly, Kolb is asked about how much his experience with the team can help the Cardinals come Sunday:

On how much he can help his team prepare for the Eagles:

"Offenses evolve. And even though it's the west coast, they evolve with different things and different protections. I've already had a few discussions, but as far as just real details, you can't really get into that because then what if they counter it and trick you? So I offer whatever I can, and then if something comes up in the game, obviously then I'll do my best to pay attention and see if it can give us an edge."

The Cards and Eagles get it on 1:00 p.m. PT this Sunday with coverage on the Fox Network
