Michael Vick is now the starting QB for the Philadelphia Eagles. In a shocking 24 plus hours, Mike has gone from sending a vote of confidence in Kevin Kolb to being named as his replacement as the starter from this point forward.
This can only be a ploy to keep the fans off the front office after the recent success of Donovan Mcnabb in Washington. Philly fans need someone to embrace, unfortunately in Mike this is the wrong choice. Only 1 season removed from his prison release he has returned to leading a professional football team.
Wasn’t it just this past off season that Vick was at the same restaurant in which a former friend was shot by another of Michael’s friends. Mike hasn’t changed, he’s no different today than he was a year ago. The only thing different about Mike is he has another organization to disappoint. This is the biggest mistake Jeffery Loria and the Eagles could make. It now tells the Eagles fans that they made a mistake on Drafting Kolb 3 seasons ago, and made a mistake in trading away McNabb to a divisional rival. The following players were all passed up while drafting Kolb with the 36th pick in the 2007 Draft (Zach Miller TE 38th, Lamar Woodley LB 46th, Steve Smith WR 51st) all of which have made great contributions for the past 3 years on the respected teams.
Good luck Philly, your season is officially over before it even began.
