Too easy

0 comments

 If the Eagles defense wanted to give Kevin Kolb a little cushion and help calm his nerves, they failed miserably. The Saints just drove down the field and easily scored when Drew Brees found Marques Colston uncovered in the end zone for a 15-yard touchdown. The only Eagles defender in Colston’s zip code was Asante Samuel. Brees was 5 of 5 on the drive. He faced only one third down; he completed a 5-yard pass to Jeremy Shockey to keep the drive alive.

Now Kolb faces an uphill climb with the Eagles down 7-0.
