07:14 AM ET 07.04 | Now in yet another new city, Bills quarterback Kevin Kolb finds himself in yet another quarterback competition. But now in Buffalo Kolb is the elder statesman, giving him yet another perspective on the most popular position battle that will ensue at St. John Fisher later this month. ... Where Kolb has an obvious edge is in experience having played six NFL seasons. Even the coaching staff has acknowledged as much. "I wouldn't say it's an advantage against EJ, but it's an advantage for me personally to be able to lean back on those type of things and those type of situations," Kolb said. "You don't have stay up at night worrying about things that I did when I was a young player."

And advantage? And you play in Buffalo? Sheesh.

The Bills did not use the 16th pick in the draft on EJ Manuel to be your back up Kev. QBs that gt beat out for the starting job by John Skelton tend to go from city to city for as long as they can.

Your job Kevin, is to take up space until the rookie is ready. Doug Marrone will do it the right way and not throw his rookie to the wolves. Great hire by the Bills.

Like you didn't have an advantage in Phoenix, Kev?



Those autumn days in Stephenville seem a long time ago, don't they?

Stu let's just say if not 'disadvantaged' you're 'advantaged'.

It goes along with the Entitlement Generation.

Take heart Mr. Kolb. As Andy Reid said so wisely before cutting Vince Young. " He is too good to be a back up."

Let me see.... Inside, in one of the nicest stadiums on earth, with one of the best WR in the game.

Versus

Snow from October to May, playing outside, a coaching staff that will turn over annually, Stevie dropping the ball.

I'd love to see him do well. May be his last chance at being a starter.

Rob, he screwed the city of PHX so badly that I hope he walks in front of a snow plow.

You want to be an NFL'er? $7 mil a year? You don't knock up your friggen wife then tell the city you won't be there on game day if she goes into labor.

That drama hung on PHX for 3 weeks last season.

An NFL QB MUST show up only about 20 days a year for 5 hours or so. That it - for $7 mil a year everything else is modifiable.

Again.... Snow plow.

He was on IR when he knocked her up, to boot.

I'm only a Cards fan on Denver's bye week and I'm pissed. The real fans are taking a class from Sheriff Joe on Posse Creation.

There was a time I had this guy on the radar because I thought I saw potential for a monster career. We all make mistakes.

July 4, 2013  11:44 AM ET

I hope he read the book I sent him "How to keep your eyes open as you throw the ball''.

July 4, 2013  11:46 AM ET

"You don't have stay up at night worrying about things that I did when I was a young player."

In other words, it doesn't matter if he busts his *** studying and prepping, because at this point he's not getting any better.

I'll give you a pass because you literally made me laugh out loud. I have great sympathy for Cards fans. Always liked them from St. Louis to Az. It's killed me watching the best receiver in the NFL wasted the last couple of years. Plus you've had to deal for years with the fact that more people came to the stadium some games to watch the other teams. That happens when you don't have an NFL team and then you do. Phoenix people already had their allegiances. Looks like when Warner played plus getting an awesome stadium has at least fixed that problem.

Kurt Warner was like a little mist to a farmer who's entire livelihood is about to be wiped out by a drought.

Just enough to really make it hurt.

6 seasons? Well, how much of that was actual playing time?

As a Card fan?

The Cards have Fitzgerald and a couple of other good targets and working on the running game.

And having Carson Palmer.[still got the arm] finding ways too get him the best OL they can for him.

May be a big difference for yer team this year.

Which one of his five senses told him this? Or was it that sixth sense? Or was it just nonsense?

32 games in 6 seasons, a real hard core 'limp out to the huddle' kind of guy...not. A real "I'm just here for the check'' kind of guy.
