Kevin Kolb was scathing in his evaluation of his play Friday night. He stayed for extra work after today’s practice, sharpening his skills and his tongue before addressing his last preseason performance before he officially becomes the club’s starting quarterback.

“Obviously, it wasn’t as sharp as we wanted. I saw some things I needed to work on,” Kolb said. “It wasn’t very good by me. And, as a unit, we have to get better. It starts with me.”

In three quarters of work, his most extensive use in the exhibition slate, Kolb was 11-for-25 with an interception and no touchdowns. He also was sacked four times.

The starters are not slated to play Thursday against the Jets in the preseason finale, so Kolb will finish his first preseason as Donovan McNabb’s successor 28-for-53 for 324 yards, with no touchdowns and the interception.

Yes, he’d like to play Thursday: “You always want to go play and get that bad taste out of your mouth.”

That will have to wait a couple of weeks.
