Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb was still down but ready for another chance the day after his first NFL start resulted in some big numbers -- 391 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions -- and a lopsided loss to the New Orleans Saints.
"It hacks you off that there's this negative attitude and you realize that maybe there is eight plays in there if we just do one thing a little different, the game could have been different," Kolb said.
The fact that coach Andy Reid said Kolb would start Sunday against Kansas City if Donovan McNabb is sidelined for a second straight week was encouraging to the former second-round pick.
"You always want to keep proving yourself, so every time he continues to have faith in me, it gives me more confidence," Kolb said. "You know he sees something there and hopefully that turns into something. This week it has to. Hopefully I can turn into the starter that he sees and wants me to be."
