say it's the speed of the game, but is there more to it?
Kevin Kolb: I'll tell you why it's the speed, because there is so much
thought that goes into it. The more you think the more it slows you down. That's
the problem I'm having right now. I'm waiting and hesitating on reads that I'd
normally just fire the ball at, but I just don't want to mess up. There is so

Kolb: Oh yeah… no doubt about it. My first year in high school sports was
rough. I broke a collarbone and was out for my first year. And I started

think when you really battle through something you can really attribute that to
something later in life and in your future.
