Kevin Kolb: I’m in Buffalo to win a Super Bowl, period

Bills quarterback Kevin Kolb isn’t shy about expressing his high expectations in Buffalo.
In his introductory press conference today, Kolb proclaimed that the only thing he’ll be satisfied with is bringing the Vince Lombardi Trophy to Buffalo.
“I’m here to win a Super Bowl. Period,” Kolb said.
First things first, Kolb needs to win the starting job. All the Bills are saying now is that they consider Kolb a strong candidate to be the starter, but he’ll have to compete in camp with Tarvaris Jackson, Aaron Corp, and probably a rookie, as the Bills are likely to draft a quarterback in two weeks.
If Kolb does earn the starting job, he’ll be the starting quarterback on a team that few people see as a playoff contender, let along a title contender. Kolb knows how low the expectations are, and he likes that.
“It’s good to come to an organization like this,” Kolb said. “They’re hungry. It’ll be nice to come out and surprise some people.”
It’s safe to say that if Kolb does win a Super Bowl in Buffalo, that will surprise some people.
Well, I like the confidence. It probably would have been more realistic to say "I came here to try to remain injury and concussion free for 6 games straight".
The Bills have the makings of a dangerous team, they are just missing that main ingredient at QB. Kolb is not the answer, despite the public posturing that he will be a "great fit" for the system. It's going to be interesting to see which rookie they select to enter the competition.
“He’s a player we had targeted since he became a free agent,” Nix said. “We think we’ve added a good one. He should be a strong candidate in the competition for the starting quarterback position.”
