08:03 AM ET 01.02 | Andy Reid and Kevin Kolb, together again? In 2011, Reid's Philadelphia Eagles sent Kolb to the Cardinals in exchange for cornerback Dominique-Rodgers Cromartie and draft picks. Reid, whom the Eagles fired Monday, has a planned interview with the Cardinals on Thursday, and NFL.com's Ian Rapoport cited a source with knowledge of the process in reporting part of Reid's pitch will be: "I can fix Kevin Kolb." Kolb signed a six-year, $63.5 million contract with the Cardinals in July 2011 and is due a $2 million roster bonus in March, in addition to $9 million in salary. ... [Kolb] has played in just 15 of 32 possible games in two seasons in Arizona. Despite that, Rapoport reported the Cardinals would like to keep Kolb, if possible.

After what he's been through this past season, that wouldn't be a bad idea.

Why did he get rid of Kolb, then ?

When does Reid trim back that Brimley that he's been sporting over his lip?

Andy has to just leave his troubled family behind and just coach football. father of the year is not in Andy's future.

he kinda already did...hence his son's death

Kevin, this is Andy. He's the coach that says you're broken.
Andy, this is Kevin. He's the QB you traded away.

Good news boys! Andy says he can fix you and, well, Advil sounds a whole lot cheaper than a new OL! So keep taking those beatings, Kevin. That's what Andy wants from his QBs.

"Cardinals want to keep Kolb if possible" That's Andy's meal ticket. Kolb will have a third chance once Andy gets there. They need each other. One to get a job and the other to get his back.

Out of sight and out of mind.

Given that Reid ditched Kolb for Vick it is a little unclear why he thinks he can win with KK.

Andy should try and fix his family life first. Too bad Reid let his 2 sons go to hell without being a father to them.

I think we get where you're coming from already.

Maybe his sons were just bad kids.

January 2, 2013  09:31 AM ET

So every bad kid has bad parents? Very very narrow-minded. And that's an understatement.

January 2, 2013  09:35 AM ET

In the next 5 years iggle fans will cry about how it was the "Good Ole Days", when Andy Reid was there...

And the fact will remain, when they had him, they didn't win SQUAT!

The guy should take a year off and unwind. He ain't taking over the '75 Steelers here. Get some rest Andy and chill out. The money will still be sitting there next year.
