Earlier today we reported that Raiders defensive end Tommy Kelly took some shots at Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb saying “That Boy Scared”.
Kolb was quick in his response, telling Darren Urban of the Word From the Birds Blog on AZCardinals.com
“Scared? Scared of what?” Kolb said. “Taking a hit? I have never been afraid of anyone on the field and that will never change. That includes Number 93 (Kelly). There’s a fine line between holding in the pocket and trying to escape to make a play. Tommy Kelly is too clueless to know the difference. I don’t mind people criticizing my play. Don’t ever question my toughness.”
I have to agree with Kolb. Calling an NFL quarterback “scared” is stupid and I am happy he called him out. I don’t believe any of these guys have fear or else they wouldn’t play at all. Any time you see a guy struggling, it is easy to question his toughness when in reality it is probably a case where he just isn’t all that good.
I will say this though, calling him clueless is pretty awesome.
