NFL  > Philadelphia Eagles  > Can Andy Reid even spell INTEGRITY?
September 21, 2010, 06:54 PM
No slam against Michael Vick. He's played great. He's earned a shot at a starting job....somewhere OTHER than Philadelphia.

Kevin Kolb was named the starter, the successor, the everything and now you're basically kicking him to the curb 24 hours after you said he was still your starter.

Is Reid's word worth anything? Even if Michael Vick wins he's still in the last year of his contract. You did not sign him to an extension. And after this he has to really think about signing that extension. Vick can probably get as much or more money from another team and sign with a coach who means it when he says "You're my starter, Michael."

If Reid says that to you, Michael, get nervous.

Reid can look like he's "right" and play Kolb.. or he can win and play Vick. That and Kolb is likely to get injured again behind the porous Philly line.

You're missing the point. Unless Vick wins the Super Bowl, which is a mighty long shot at this stage, this move will set back the team years. Kolb is done as a possible starter for this team after this year. And after this year I'd be shocked that Vick would want to stick around Andy "You're my guy" Reid.

1.)How is that going to set the team back years??? Kolb still hasn't proven ANYTHING in the NFL, while Vick has a great resume, aside from the dog fighting thing.
2.)Vick has already played the majority of the starting snaps for the Eagles this year and the results haven't been bad, and the offensive players don't seem to have a problem with him under center, so why go back to Kolb and risk breaking up the chemistry they have established???

In the NFL it's all about getting the win, in this particular scenario Vick gives the team a better chance at it. Wins equate to job security loses equal getting fired, Reids mistake was announcing Kolb would regain his position when he was healthy, to err is human.

Ocean City is by far the best beach. It gets crowded, but if you go at the right time of year it's the best!
