Kolb is not a starter, but I think he could avoid a complete disaster for a few weeks.
I see what you're saying, and I agree. It gets kind of scary when you throw a young QB to the wolves. But really having him behind Manning for a full year should quell some of those concerns. Also you have to wonder if it would hurt his confidence if you brought someone in to be the 2nd string QB. I couldn't say for sure, but I trust Elway and crew will do the right thing.
