07:58 AM ET 09.20 | The best thing about the Eagles after two weeks might be a quarterback who isn't scheduled to start in Week 3. [Michael] Vick now has marshalled 52 points in six quarters as the No. 1 guy. That's a lot. He's also 5-for-6 in the red zone. Reid said it was "not hard at all" to go back to [Kevin] Kolb, the fourth-year quarterback who became the Eagles' future when they traded Donovan McNabb to Washington back in April. Reid said that as you saw early in the opener against Green Bay, he plans to work in Vick more often than he did last season. "He'll still have opportunities to make plays," Reid said.

It's pretty obvious, they don't want Vick to play.

Start Vick Dammit!

We're gonna see just how long Reid can ignore the fact that Kolb is not the best option at QB.

And - how long he wants to keep his job.

But the way the NFC East looks right now, he might be able to wait for awhile.

Andy Reid is stubborn and arrogant. Kolb is his guy.

Kolb isn't the answer, I for one would rather face the Eagles with Kolb, so he's doing the opposition a favor.

The division winner might not even be 8-8. What a trainwreck.

I've heard multiple interviews with opposing teams D-coordinators. Vick scares them right now.

They're just dying for Vick to fail, but so far he just hasn't done it. They continue to treat him like a Chris Brown reject. lol

He deserves to play. No question.

Of course he does, he has so many possibilities at qb.

I don't think there's been a division winner under .500 in in the last 40 years, if ever.

8-8 was common for the NFC Central division winner during the early 80's.

Most successful people ARE stubborn and arrogant...

... which usually helps them during their prime years and overall.

However, there are times when that strength can become a weakness.

This could be the year. Brandon Jacobs seems to be having "issues". Eagles have a qb mess. The Cowboys ARE a mess and does anyone really know what Washington is?
