PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – If Andy Reid ends up as the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, he’ll have another chance at doing two things he hasn’t succeeded at just yet; winning a Super Bowl and making Kevin Kolb a productive pro quarterback.

Reid will interview for the Cardinals head coaching job on Thursday, NFL.COM reports, and part of his pitch to win the job will be to ‘fix’ Kevin Kolb. Kolb of course, was supposed to be the quarterback of the future for the Eagles, and traded Donovan McNabb to give Kolb a chance at the starting job. Kolb sustained a concussion in the first game of the 2010 season, Michael Vick came in and excelled, Kolb was traded, and the rest is history.

Injuries have forced Kolb to miss 17 of the Cardinals’ 32 games in his two seasons in Arizona. Despite the injury problems and mixed results on the field, NFL.COM’s Ian Rappaport says that the Cardinals would like to keep Kolb on the roster for the 2013 season.

In two seasons with Arizona, Kolb has a 6-8 record as a starter, completing 58.5 percent of his passes, thrown for 17 touchdowns and 11 interceptions, and has a QB rating of 83.2
