Re: Andy Reid names Michael Vick as team's starting quarterback

Why not just resign Vick at the end of the year to a reasonable 4 or 5 year contract, and trade Kolb for whatever you could get for him?? Vick is not old people. If he is protected, he could play for as many as 8 more years, maybe even more.....

Re: Andy Reid names Michael Vick as team's starting quarterback

I think it's a given at this point, barring a major injury or a complete implosion, Mike Vick will get franchised by the Eagles. Still there will be suiters. And if the price is right I wouldn't be surprised to see Vick go to the highest bidder next season.

It shall be interesting.

On a somewhat related note, with the combination of early benchings and injuries to QBs this year in the NFL has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that you need two starting quality QBs to make it through the season. If my count is right, something like 5 or 6 starting QBs have been benched and we just finished week two.

Yeah! Teams have long since come to the realization it's going to take 2-3 running backs to get through a season, the same is going to eventually hold true for QB's as well. This move, if implemented successfully, could eventually affect how both NFL QB's & RB's are compensated.

Re: Andy Reid names Michael Vick as team's starting quarterback

If the Franchise tag rules stay the same, a qb franchise tag could be at around 19 Million dollars (after Brady and Peyton's deals). I am not sure that the Eagles, or anyone else will see Vick as worth that.

Re: Andy Reid names Michael Vick as team's starting quarterback

I agree about the two QBs. That's why Rex was a real solid pickup. I don't think anyone would confuse him with a pro-bowler but over 304 games he can probably keep going and win some. He's an average starter and an above average backup.

No but they can rescind that at any time before he signs the tender. Tagging would keep him in their control and they can then work on trading him for something reasonable.

Re: Andy Reid names Michael Vick as team's starting quarterback

good point about the big franchise price Credskinsrule, that would be a lot to pay for a player of his background.

Vick sounded much more mature & well spoken when asked about Kolb starting earlier this week. Now that he's the starter & in a contract year, he is extra motivated. Glad Haslett will at least have a couple games of tape on him.

Don't discount what he did v. detroit. On some of those plays he had a lot of time, but he also bought time & made great throws.

Since when did the front office personal sit in on film sessions? Jeffery Lurie has pulled a Bud Adams IMO.
well, granted they have gotten involved but a lot of FO's make personnel decisions, not just in Philly

Vick was the better QB vs GB and did well against DET, you want to give yourself the best chance to win each and every week

Re: Andy Reid names Michael Vick as team's starting quarterback

Apparently, the Browns called the Eagles about getting Kolb last night, according to Anthony Gargano (WIP -Philly).

The Browns' GM used to be the Eagles' GM and tried to get Kolb in the offseason this year already.

Interestingly hilarious.

Re: Andy Reid names Michael Vick as team's starting quarterback

Yeah.. they said no deal, but Reid wouldn't say if he was a lock for the roster before the trade deadline, something about he couldn't predict it

to me that had the undertones of "I don't call the shots around here"

Well that was obvious as he was literally shedding tears over trading Donovan.

Re: Andy Reid names Michael Vick as team's starting quarterback

According to the NFL, The Eagles have begun listening to offers for Kevin Kolb. The browns called them just last night....

So I guess Vick is their future afteralll.....

Vick has every tangible trait a QB coach would love his upside was so obvious that i'm surprised people missed it.
But, for some reason I was basically in a 1 man argument against all extremeskins that Vick had upside.
Vick will probably never be as good as the QB Steve Young turned out to be, but the similiaities are obvious both left handed both were running QBs before they received top level coaching late in their careers. But, unlike Young, Vick was a winning QB even before he learned how to be an effecient passer.
I'm not going to hide the fact that i was a Vick fan and now i'm faced with rooting for my favorite non-Redskin to fail.
