Thought it would be fun to pick out the most entertaining and/or smartest comments from the earlier thread that broke the news that Michael Vick is the new starter for our Philadelphia Eagles. Note: If you used the word "hater," don't even bother looking for your quote...
You have to imagine Kolb is still the man long term but he’s gotta be HEATED.
Wait 3 years, get a half, wait some more. Oooh boy.
If there are any cooks in here, you can appreciate the stupidity of Reid’s "allow the maturation process to continue." This one time, I was making chicken breasts and I thought they would be more tender if I marinaded them for a week. But instead, they were spoiled, rank and maggoty.
I'm an Eagles fan. I’ll be behind whoever is under center…but I really think Kolb deserves a bigger shot.
At least this thread topic isn't... Breaking: Andy Reid Names Omar Gaither As Eagles Starter
I wanted to see Kolb play but I think we can contend for the East with Vick. He is so damn dynamic.
Looks like I'm not starting kolb in fantasy this week…
Really? They’re sitting him after ten passes?
Screw PETA. Just throwing that out there.
Eagles offseason moves make them look like rubes especially with all of the inflation of Kolb and handing him that huge paycheck.
Kolb is balling on the bench. 12 million, and just watch the game. Good for him.
This is weak. You trade away the best QB this franchise had (McNabb) and go balls out with Kolb all season. Then as soon as he shows a little youth and gets injured he gets benched? I would have rather kept McNabb for another year or two than have Vick starting for us. Sigh.
Vick was awesome don’t get me wrong … but it was the 2 and 32 Lions we are talking about who let up 372 yards in the air to Cutler the week before. Color me unimpressed.
This is great, until Vick sucks, then what?
If Vick could take that Atlanta team as far as he did just imagine what he will do with our much more talented team should be great…..I hope
I am not sure what to think right now. I started like 4 different sentences, and erased them all. Nothing looked right. And i still dont know how i stand.
Excited and dissapointed all at the same time. I think that sums it up.
Yes, Vick gives us the best shot right now in this year, maybe. This is the best he’s ever looked I agree, but we have far more evidence to suggest that he isn’t able to sustain this level of success.
If I’m Kolb I demand a trade right now, if its all a business I want to prove myself and get paid, can’t do that behind Vick.

Why give the Jags an entire week to prepare?
One thing really bothering me about this is that EVERYONE that supported Kolb said that "we have to trust the organization. They see him EVERYDAY and we dont." Now…the FO changes their stance and no one trusts it….. Lets not forget….they do see him EVERYDAY. maybe they know something we dont.
OR perhaps this is all just a ploy to fuck with the jags. We know Vick will always get his plays. So if he just gets the first one….thats a START.
Does this mean Vick gets a contract extension?
what happens after this year. Do they give the reins to Kolb, or extend Vick
He should have let Kolb play against Jacksonville and evaluate after that
A win-win for both players, Andy? Really? How can you even pretend that this is a "win" for Kolb?
Fastest Offense ever assembled - Vick, D Jax, Maclin, and McCoy……. Oh Baby….. greatest show on turf part 2
Well now Winston Justice just became our most valuable Olineman … weird that I’m not terrified with that
The one bright spot - I thought Eskin was going to either retire or have a stroke today.
