If you watched Wednesday’s PFT Live, you heard Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb telling Glen Macnow and Anthony Gargano of 94 WIP in Philly that, during Sunday’s game at Philadelphia, Kolb was calling out the Eagles’ plays to the Arizona defense.

If you didn’t watch Wednesday’s PFT Live, thanks for nothing.

The entire interview is posted at the WIP website, and Sheil Kapadia of has transcribed portions of it.

“During the two-minute drill, you almost feel guilty,” Kolb said. “Mike’s sitting there giving the signals, and I’m standing there on our sidelines, screaming at our corners, ‘Hey it’s a go ball, hey he’s running a screen, hey he’s running a slant.’”

It’s unknown whether and to what extent all of the struggles of the 2011 Eagles can be blamed on coach Andy Reid. The failure to change signals and formations and other things that a guy who spent four years with the team as a quarterback could use to help an opposing defense falls squarely on Reid, especially since Reid knew that Kolb likely wouldn’t be playing -- and thus able to loiter on the sidelines when the defense was on the field, in lieu of working with the offensive coaches.
