08:05 AM ET 08.13 | Andy Reid and the Eagles bring different expectations to the Kevin Kolb era, which to some degree opens in earnest with its offensive weapons Friday night. Reid obviously wants to kick off the next phase of his tenure in Philadelphia with a positive start. Kolb and the Eagles starters are expected to play just one quarter. The quarterback's performance will be the first indicator of whether Reid made the right choice when he traded [Donovan] McNabb to Washington and promoted his backup in the off-season. ... Reid gave himself a little leeway and said that Kolb could play a little more than a quarter. When he sits, Michael Vick will take over for a quarter and a half and third-stringer Mike Kafka will quarterback the rest of the game.

So then, how is the Kolb era any different from the McNabb era?

Wonder what the logo behind him represents?

We'll just have to wait and see on this. There are NO predictable teams in the NFC East this year. When you think about out, though, it will be fun to watch from the outside.

If I were putting down money, I'd say Dallas. But I'd really like to see the Skins surprise everybody and have a great season. Giants in the basement would be icing on the cake.

LaBatts 50 - the official Canadian Ale of the Philadelphia Eagles.

What do YOU think about this, Fifty? Are you going to sue for using your name in vain?

I like my interpretation better.

1960 - the glory years of the Eagles!

you think his performance will be an indicator of whether they should've traded mcnabb? i thought his memorization of Baskins-robbins 31 flavors would be a better indicator.

Put Micheal Vick in, and let him play...you'll see a real dog fight than.

August 13, 2010  10:14 AM ET

It's refreshing... Wish Don on the best in Washington but looking forward to the Kolb era. And as long as Eli and Tony are quartering the other teams Eagles remain in the thick of things.

I would, but Canada does not recognize my copyright and Philly is not part of the USA, so I am scre#ed.

chris rock still has the best 50 cent joke ever...i think he said it at the VMA's talking about 50 getting shot nine times..."50 cent has taken more shots to the face then Jenna Jameson"..and then he topped it off with an Olsen twins and R. Kelly joke.
