Atlanta will always love Mike Vick but he’s now been officially named the starting QB for the Philadelphia Eagles!
The Philadelphia Eagles have named Michael Vick the team’s starting quarterback, coach Andy Reid said Tuesday.
“When someone is playing at the level Michael Vick is playing, you have to give him an opportunity,” Reid said. “This isn’t about Kevin Kolb’s play. You’re talking about Michael Vick as one the best quarterbacks in the NFL right now.”
Kolb missed the last six quarters because of a concussion, and Vick played well in his absence. Kolb was cleared to practice and was expected to run the first-team offense on Wednesday.
“Kevin is fine. It’s not an injury-related issue,” Reid said. “It’s not about judging him. He’s going to be a championship-caliber quarterback.”
This decision to go with Vick had been in the works for two days.
Team sources told ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio that in the early morning hours on Monday, Reid, general manager Howie Roseman and the rest of the Eagles coaching staff and front office started going through the game film of Sunday’s win in Detroit and saw the severity of the problems on the Eagles offensive line.
