A day after Michael Vick announced he's ready to be an NFL starter, the Eagles other backup quarterback did the exact same thing. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports: "I want to be a starter in the NFL," (Kevin) Kolb said in a telephone interview Thursday. "That’s my No. 1 goal right now. I want that opportunity. But I’m going to be a team player. I trust [coach] Andy [Reid]. I trust his decisions and his ability to see what’s in the future and plan out my career the right way. Hopefully, we’ll do those things to get me on the field at some point, not knowing when it’s going to be." Kolb is trying to avoid listening to any of the speculation. He has been bass fishing in south Texas and will remain at his off-season home in Granbury until the middle of March. Kolb said he has not discussed his future with Reid since the season ended. "I’m hearing reports from my friends and family, but for the most part, I’m trying to avoid it," Kolb said. "I’m just taking time off, working out and relaxing my mind a little bit."
