not sure how I feel about this.
On the day before his first training camp as the Eagles' starting quarterback Kevin Kolb received a large number of phone calls and messages with best wishes.
But one text message stood out. Kolb heard from the man he's replacing -- Donovan McNabb.
"He told me to take one practice at a time and be patient," Kolb said Tuesday following the first practice of training camp. "And I said, 'Yeah, I hear you. It's a long season.' That's what I was saying before. You kind of get caught up in the whole realm of the whole season and whatever expectations. Just take it one practice at a time at this time of year and that will help you get a lot better."
McNabb was at a Washington area Borders today signing autographed copies of the book he helped write, "NFL Dads Dedicated to Daughters: Inspiring Personal Accounts of Fatherhood. He was asked about his text to Kolb.
"I try to inspire young players, to just continue to keep their head up, write goals for yourself that are attainable and for them to just have confidence in themselves," McNabb said, according to the Washington Post. "For me, it could've been easier for me to walk out the door and not said anything to anyone. But that's not the type of person I am. I'm a guy who cares. I've text-messaged Kevin and...several of my former offensive linemen and the list goes. The thing about 11 years is [it's] something you can't just forget."
