So ummm, I win the game cause I said this would happen in the preseason. Vick is STILL a dominate quarterback in this league.

I wouldn't call him dominant, NAR. But he clearly is still effective. Let's not get carried away after 6 quarters; two in garbage time against GB and against the Lions.

But this was the right move. You go with the guy giving you a best chance to win and I think you ride this momentum as long as you can. If Reid were to start Kolb and he struggles, benching him could crush him.

And what has Kolb ever done on the road but "struggle" - with a lifetime passer rating of 31.7 on the NFL highway so to speak?

But I don't doubt that the total mess that the Eagles' offensive line is in had a lot to do with the decision to go with Vick.

And more than a few observers have found this headline to be in questionable taste to say the least:

LOL I love the headline who you kidding.

Okay yeah, it was stupid. However, how can you not call Vick dominate, he decimated Detroit, he ran for over 100 and passed for over 100 IN TWO QUARTERS against the Packers, and the Pack WERE NOT letting up the pressure even tho it was garbage time. The dude is what, 38 now, he is playing like hes 26.

Ehh whatever, hes old. He spent two years barely playing and he's still better than any QB in Cleveland. Hell if Philly doesn't want him next year we will take him.

Dude, that is not saying much half the college teams in the top 25 this year have better QBs than the Browns. :lol:

Thats true, lol. However, I believe his stats before the injury hold up for themselves, who do you want playing for you right now? Truthfully? Kolb or Vick?

This is a totally awesome time for conspiracy theorists: Based on an extremely suspicious line movement, one can safely assume that Vick will start this Sunday against his former team: A few "off-shore" betting services were quoting a line of pick'em or even the Falcons as a 1-point favorite Monday; but the "consensus opening" line, posted Tuesday morning, installed the Eagles as a 3-point favorite.

What that tells you should be painfully obvious (and BTW, since off-shore lines are not the source of first resort for our NFL Pointspread Contest, the Eagles -3 spread is the one against which the picks therein will be made).

And wouldn't you know: This game is being telecast as the "featured" early game by FOX nationally, as this link graphically attests. Now this doesn't have anything to do with Vick garnering higher ratings, would it? Or is that just another conspiracy theory?

Or, because Michael Vick has yet to take a single snap in practice (including today), it's safe to assume that Kevin Kolb will be starting this Sunday.

And wherever Joe Buck and Troy Aikmen are not is considered a second-tier game in FOX's eyes.

Really I figured wherever Joe Buck was wouldn't instantly be eliminated from ANY AND EVERY TELECAST EVER!!! :lol:

Yes I hate Joe Buck.

Aikman is doing the Dallas at Minnesota game - in the late time slot.

And Vick is one of these players who insists that he doesn't have to practice to play, a la Allen Iverson.

Who for a long time didn't have to practice to play. Until he came to Detroit :thumbdown:


Vick doesn't not want to practice, he has been unable to practice, I dont understand your comparison.

Prior to last week it would have been Vick, but now I am happy with either. It looks like Kolb needed that road game in San Fran away from the hype of the Philly fans and media to get his feet under him. After last week's game and what I have seen so far today against Atlanta it would not bother me one bit if Kolb were to remain the starter. He has answered any questions I have had about his ability to stretch the field the last two weeks. He has also showed more mobility than I thought he ever had.
