Kolb on playing in Philly: 'You have to build up walls'

Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb sat down this week with NBC's Bob Costas for an exclusive interview that airs tonight on ‘Football Night in America’ before the Eagles-Niners game.

Kolb addressed several subjects, according to excerpts of the interview released this afternoon: 

On QB controversy: “I’m not trying to compare numbers. I’m not trying to compare starts. I’m just trying to go win the game and take care of it from a team standpoint. I think the rest of it will take care of itself.”

On his concussion: “I’ve never had one before so I can’t really speak on it from experience. The side effects that went along with it are astonishing.”

On scrutiny in Philadelphia: “One thing you realize is that, in this city, you have to find a way to block it all out. You have to build up walls for yourself. If you get into analyzing everything that everybody is saying and caring what everybody is saying, it’s just going to tear you down. Not only myself, but my family has done the same thing. I think Mike has done the same thing and that’s the only way you can go play your game. That’s what you have to do. When the whistles blow, you have to be able to forget it all and then go play.”
