Kolb's starting against the Saints

It should come as no surprise to you that Kevin Kolb will make his first and perhaps final start for the Eagles today against the Saints. Eagles coach Andy Reid hedged his bets a little during the week by not ruling out Donovan McNabb (rib), but it was pretty obvious that Kolb would get the starting nod.

As I've said several times, I think Kolb will perform well in leading the Eagles to a win over the Saints. It's actually a good spot for Kolb because the Saints have a suspect defense. I think he'd really have to play poorly for Reid to yank him out of the game in favor of Jeff Garcia.

So what happens if Kolb plays poorly today and the Eagles lose? Would the Eagles stick with Garcia for the rest of the season? I'll let you guys decide.
