I for one am not a fan of Kevin Kolb..
Vick has been sitting and waiting for this starting position to open up..
I know you need to give Kolb a chance , and that the Packer's d is nice.. but VICK did his work on 'em..
Put the best option in to win games.. all i'm saying..

If Kolb and Vick are both healthy next week against the Lions, Kolb should start.
Vick had a tremendous second half but the Vick was not as effective in the first half. It could be that the Eagles offense made adjustment and the Packers D prepared to face Kolb not Vick.
Eagles and there coaching staff have too much invested in Kolb who is in his final year.
I am an Eagles fan but lets be realistic, the Eagles are in rebuild mode and they need to know what they have in Kolb in order to plan for the future. Lets not forget that Kolb had 2 back-to-back 300 yard games last year. Vick is a band-aid not a long-term solution.
Philly fans are a wild bunch, in the pregame they were cheering for him and as soon as the guy struggles you throw him under the bus
EAGLES have upcoming games against @JAX and @DET. Two teams they should beat. If Kolb has the same struggles in the next 2 games as he did against GB (THE #1 defense in the NFC last year) then you start Vick.

Wow.. next thing is his jacket in Canton!? lmao!!!!!!!!!!!!! bahhahahaha
those two teams fannation were.. ..
New Orleans WEEK 2 with a huge CATCH.. the Eagles got beat DOWN.. 22-48.. Kolb had 3 int's in that game as well..
the Second team.. Kansas **** CITY.. wow..
Michael Vick love him or not is as fast as lightning for a qb.. he can make moves Kolb has only dreamed of..
Kolb has had two solid games.. whoopity **** doo.
Vick has been to the NFC championship..
What's funny is he looked like the old Vick in ATL yesterday against the pack..
Kolb had one yard rushing while Vick had a 100!
I know Kolb is the pocket passer but Vick is a dual threat..
If Kolb has the same struggles in the next 2 games as he did against GB (THE #1 defense in the NFC last year) then you start Vick.
I don't understand your logic.. Packers have better d then both of 'em n Vick played one hel* of a game against the pack.
Reid says he's "proud of Vick".. put him in before Kolb puts you under.. The dude suxs.. str8 up.. He's from a college that inflates #'s..

"he looked like the old Vick in ATL"
The old Vick used to have troubles completing simple passes in his time in ATL. Career Completion % of 53.7 is not very impressive. Vick would have tremendous games followed by mediocre games.
Teams with good DE or a good spy LB were able to keep Vick in the pocket and have success against Vick.
"Kolb has had two solid games.. whoopity **** doo. "
What I am saying is he has potential. It is not fair to bench a guy of one game just like its not right to call him a great QB because he threw for 600 yards in 2 games.
Also its hard to get into a rhythm as a QB when you have to keep coming off the field for VICK
The thing is the Eagles need to know what they have in Kolb going forward. Kolb (26), needs to be given at least 2 more games before you can assess him as a QB.
"Michael Vick love him or not is as fast as lightning for a qb.. he can make moves Kolb has only dreamed of."
Being a better athlete does not make you a great QB.

Sabeeh, here's the deal, Last season Michael Vick was fresh out of prison. Vick was coming back into the league after a two season hiatus. Vick was hyped up in the Eagles's system as the "wildcat guy". I mean come on, he hadn't play'd in TWO YEARS, so of course Kolb was Mcnabb's insurance plan. This season McNabb is up the road like we all know. Kolb gets the start and Vick is the backup. Let me ask this question tho, Could Kolb have been the decoy until Vick got fresh? Anybody that watched the Eagles play yesterday saw vick playing pretty bad a.s.s. ball with a 17 pt. deficit. Ried said Vick's play was "phenominal". Kolb should see the bench until Vick plays out of character, Vicks proven. I think Kolb is SERIOUSLY overrated..
Being a better athlete does not make you a great QB.
Who played better yesterday against one of the top defenses of last year?
Two reason why people don't want to see Vick start..
the 1. don't like 'em for what he did
or 2. think Kolb is a better "passer"
I think those two reasons are absurd.. wake up n smell they coffee Philly.. Ya'll brought Vick in for a reason.. he's a dam Superstar

"he's a dam Superstar"
Correction, was a damn superstar
Vick has been very inconsistent even when with the Falcons. I will admit he had a great game but that is because the Packers had been preparing all week to face a different QB in Kolb and nobody expected Vick to be as effective as he was.
In a game involving so much strategy, it makes a big difference when a you have to adjust for a new threat.
"Kolb is overrated"
[/b]Also, a lot of people considered Vick overrated because of his inconsistent play, inability execute simple plays and thinking run first too often.[/b]
The reason Kolb should start is simple and it has to do with the investment the Eagles have in Kolb. They got rid of McNabb and handed the keys to him.
If Reid benches Kolb it hurts Kolb's confidence and it makes Reid and the Eagles organization look like they had no idea what they are doing. Also, Vick is 30 while Kolb is 26.
Vick's playing style does not allow him to have a long career unlike a pocket passer.
