According to a recent article on yahoo, Michael Vick was just named starting qb in light of his great performance against the Detroit Lions, and has NOTHING to do with the concussion suffered to Kolb. At least, that's what Andy Reid says anyways. Therefore, I would like to ask all of you is this a good idea to make Vick the starter or bad idea? please discuss.
I just saw the highlights from last week and he looks quick and perhaps more mature after taking a few years off. The Eagles said it was deficiencies with their O-line that made him the better choice.
The one thing I'd really like to know is if he's lost a step or not. Is he as explosive of an athlete as he was. Last year in a few plays I saw him take in the wildcat, he looked a lot slower. This year he looks better than ever.
I think it's an easy choice if your goal is to give your team the best chance at winning. I think it's highly unlikely for Kolb to get the starting job back. Vick is just too dynamic.

Philly Paper headline said "Top Dog!"
yeah, that's true. however, you have to remember it's the nfl. they don't care about morals or standards. no to them it's all about money and exposure. heck, all vick has to do is win a super bowl, and all that dog fighting crap will go away. it worked for Lewis when the ravens won a super bowl, and he was once convicted of murder if im not mistaken.
I think it was a good idea for coach Andy Reid. As an NFL coach, the ever-popular saying is the NFL stands for "not for long" and that would be what Andy Reid's job prospects would look like if they started Kolb. Vick is the more dynamic player. He took crappy Atlanta Falcons teams and made them playoff teams by his ability. He has also been outstanding thus far and looks to have regained his form. Granted they groomed Kolb for years under McNabb and then sent McNabb packing as Kolb was the man of the future. But if you're coach Reid, you don't have a future if you do not win games. Go with the better QB and stop playing for the future when you are never assured of one in the NFL.
While I feel this is the right move for the eagles there is nothing about the situation I am intrigued by.What sickens me about it is that all last week every sports show on television was clamoring how the Eagles should make this so obvious choice.When the news came out they had made that choice every single sports show instantly changed to a negative viewpoint on something they all supported by reporting,"Is this the right move for the Eagles or did they just ruin their playoff chances for the season?" I'm so sick of the constant flip flopping of the sports commentating world.Form an opinion and stick with it already.
Kevin Kolb is still young and I would have liked to see McNabb stay one more year to let him watch and learn. Vick being the QB adds another element to the offense, but in the long run, Kolb is the answer. Vick starting is a mistake and the Eagles will soon learn that the hard way.
He deserves to be the starter. Kolb looked horrible in the preseason and in the first game before he got injured. Vick has looked good and he's getting better each week. And that line does look leaky, so having a mobile QB is a good thing for the Eagles.

He is as important to his team as anyone in the league right now and brings an element to the game that almost no other QB ever has.

Was the Eagles keeping Michael Vick for 1-year $10M a good desision?

In a weird end-of-the-season anomaly, the current convoluted NFC playoff scenario dictates that Giants playoff hopes are increased by the Eagles winning tonight's game against the Vikings. This is one of the rare times when the Giants will root for the Eagles to win in a game that isn't against an...

http://m.espn.go.com/nfl/story?storyId=7215237I just tweeted this article. I'm amazed at how quickly Tebow has gone from a guy that couldn't play QB in the NFL to now the Chiefs view him as a Michael Vick type with triple threat type skills. I can't imagine how big the hype will get if he...

What's next for the Philadelphia Eagles? Should they keep Michael Vick? Or rebuild with NIck Foles?
