After Michael Vick's impressive 21-of-34, 284-yard and two touchdown performance in the Eagles victory over the Lions, Andy Reid says Kevin Kolb will start in week 3.
It's a curious decision -- one Reid called "not hard at all" -- but one that many figured the Eagles would make no matter how good Vick looked.
Kolb has been groomed for this role for the last four years so it's easy to understand Reid's motivations behind sticking with him. At the same time, Vick was awfully impressive over the last two games.
SB Nation's Bleeding Green Nation knows what will dominate the headlines but says having Vick play well isn't such a bad thing.
The Vick/Kolb discussions will of course dominate any and all talk surrounding the Eagles this week, and I think that's generally perceived as a bad thing. I don't see it that way. It's only a topic of discussion because Vick has been so surprisingly good, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with having the best backup QB in the NFL.
Reid says Vick will still be incorporated into the game plan next week.
