I love it.
The gauntlet has been laid. Unreasonable expectations of perfection are all that matters anymore. One bad game and you're demoted. Bad half of QBing and a concussion? To the bench with you. I suspect any Olineman who allows a sack from here on out will not be starting the next week. If Maclin drops a pass, Avant moves up. If Djax screws up a route, he'll be riding the pine. McCoy fumbles? Or can't pick up a first down? Mike Bell, welcome to starting in the NFL. God forbid Nate Allen drops his next interception opportunity because we don't have another FS. We are marching towards the Super Bowl and anyone who does anything at all at any point in time to possibly hinder that is going down.
But I'm really excited knowing that the Eagles are guaranteed a Super Bowl now. Think about it: Reid wants to win now, but no one really knows what we have in Kolb. We haven't seen enough of Kolb to know what he can be. He could be Brees, Manning and Brady all rolled into one. But Mike Vick is starting. That means he is without a doubt better than any possibility Kolb could turn into. Reid is letting us know that even though there is no way to know how good Kolb could be, Vick is better. Soooo, Super Bowl is the only possible outcome. If Kolb's ultimate potential is the best QB in the league (again, we don't really know if he is or isn't at this point) and Vick is better, then how can we not be headed for glory?
I better start planning my Super Bowl party now. It's gonna be epic.
