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.

Long has taken a small congregation in 1987 and built it into a 10,000 seat megachurch. Now, he faces the toughest test of his career after being formally accused of using his power as a religious leader to coerce two young men into sexual acts! Continue Reading…

The tour begins Nov. 4th, when the pair sings their hearts out to fans in Richmond, Virginia.
Eric Benet will also be a part of the tour. No official announcements have been made, but his participation is scheduled to begin in January.
The timing coincides with the release of Burruss’ sophomore solo CD, ‘Kandi Koated,’ which is scheduled to hit shelves on Nov. 23, just prior to the conclusion of third season of the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’.
Fantasia’s most recent album, “Back to Me,” entered Billboard’s Top 200 chart at No. 2, selling more than 117,000 units.
The dude smiling brightly in the above mugshot (yep… that’s a mugshot and not a yearbook picture!) is none other than singer/songwriter Bruno Mars, most notably known for his silky verse on B.o.B.’s “Nothing On You”.
Mars (born Peter Gene Hernandez), 23, was arrested in Las Vegas after police received a narcotics call from someone at the Hard Rock Hotel. According to reports, a bathroom attendant approached a security officer at the facility to say that there was a man in a bathroom stall who might be using drugs, telling the guard that a male in the bathroom was “taking a really long time.”
It was soon revealed that the hitmaker was in possession of 2.6 grams of cocaine, discovered on his person after security guards confronted him.
Once law enforcement officers made their move, cops say they asked Bruno to “give over whatever narcotics he had.” According to the police report obtained by TMZ, Bruno then “pulled out a white powder substance, which was consistent with cocaine, from his left-front jeans pocket.”
Cops say Bruno “admitted he did a foolish thing and has never used drugs before.” <~ Yeah right.
Mars was released from custody at 7:45 a.m. Sunday morning and has been ordered to return to court for his arraignment November 18.
At least he’s smiling. I swear he looks like he’s thinking “mama I made it” in that shot. SMH…
