Donovan McNabb Benched, Kevin Kolb In

After struggling mightily in the Eagles 13-13 tie in Cincinnati last week, Donovan McNabb went a dismal 8-for-18 in the first half of today's game in Baltimore. In the process, he lost a fumble, ending the Eagles' best offensive drive of the day, and threw two interceptions, including a terrible pass that was picked off by Samari Rolle and returned inside the Philadelphia five-yard line, leading to Baltimore's touchdown.

Apparently, Andy Reid has seen enough, as the Eagles came out in the second half with second-year signal-caller Kevin Kolb lining up under center.

To this point, Kolb's only experience this season has been mop-up duty in Week 1, and a series during the Week 3 game with Pittsburgh when McNabb sat out briefly with an injury. He went 1-for-3 on his first series today.
