1) Vick is the one getting franchised
2) Kolb has one year left on his deal

Kolb is a longterm insurance. Vick doesn't have many more years, especially when teams will figure him out in that system, as they always do with QB's unless that QB is legit. Vick is considered a backup who came in and had success. No guarantee he does it again.

All valid points. For the first time in his career Vick showed his prowess as a passer. A career best in completion percentage, passing yards, TD's, and passer rating. He actually looked like an NFL QB and not just a freakish athlete in the backfield. As long as he keeps working he will continue his success.

In his limited starts Kolb is the one that looks like the backup.

Kolb isn't longterm anything. The Eagles have openly said they want to deal him.

So why give up a lot for him if you can get him for free 1 year later?



Because the Eagles are trading him. If you feel he's worth it.. now is the time to act. If you don't, just sit back and watch the Vikes, the Cards, the Titans, or some other team nab him. There will be no getting him next year.
Can we give them a 3rd and Brandon Whiting back?

Good. We will have to find another backup qb then.

No thanks.

He's better than anybody we have right now.

How is he better than Alex Smith?

Terrible deep ball, terrible mechanics, worse accuracy on short to intermediate throws than Alex Bust himself..


And people want to swap 1sts for this guy

AJ Feeley....Round 2.

So why did Reid trade McNabb and feel comfortable naming this guy as the starter ? If his mechanics and accuracy are as bad as you say they are why did he not declare a QB competition between Kolb & Vick ? Why did they throw 12+ million at Kolb over 2 seasons ?

So who is right and who is wrong here, Reid and the Eagles FO or you ?

What happened during the preseason didn't matter. What mattered was that Kolb folded during the season and practically lost the starting job to Vick for good. He didn't look good in competitive games.

For those who want Kolb, that's a worrisome sign. The Eagles FO has shown that it knows what it's doing. Last year, everyone thought that it flubbed the McNabb trade, and pretty quickly everyone realized who got the better end of the deal.

I am very curious how Harbaugh's plane for rejuvenating the 49ers looks He must have a long term plan for turning this around. His choice for QB will reveal a lot.
He will draft a QB in the second round, maybe the 3rd In the meantime, he will look for the best option without investing more than a 3rd round pick...if the CBA precedes the draft. This is a bad year to need a QB. The pickings are slim.
