Well, shit. Kevin Kolb was helping the Cardinals defense on Sunday by calling out a handful of plays that the Eagles were about to run. He said as much yesterday when he was a guest with the Cuz and Prof on WIP.
"During the two-minute drill, you almost feel guilty. 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.'"
And you know what? The quiet crowd may have helped the Cardinals as well. Sure, you never want to get too loud when your team has the ball, but maybe some level of noise at all would have helped?
"How much of an effect do I really have?" Kolb said. "I’m screaming to one guy. He may hear me, he may not. Luckily for us at that point [presumably the 2-minute drill at the end], the crowd was pretty dead and some of our guys could maybe hear it."
Sigh. Even the fans are losers.
