Reid Says Vick To Start Next Game After Eagles Bye

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Philadelphia coach Andy Reid is switching quarterbacks again and says Michael Vick will start Nov. 7 against Indianapolis in the Eagles’ next game after their bye week.

Kevin Kolb made his third straight start Sunday, and the Eagles lost 37-19 to Tennessee. Kolb threw for 231 yards and was intercepted twice. He also lost a fumble at the Tennessee 3 in the third quarter.

Vick was the third quarterback against Tennessee as he recovered from injured rib cartilage.

Reid said after the loss that Vick would be his starter coming out of the bye.

Kolb began the season as the Eagles’ starter after they traded away Donovan McNabb. But he suffered a concussion in the opener and Vick played so well in his place that he remained the starter when Kolb returned.

Then Vick got hurt himself.

    Vick or Kolb it will not matter if our defense is as terrible as it was during the second half against the Titans.

  3. Peter Z says:

    Same old Corn on the Kolb! While Kolb has the potential to be a great QB, he is a little too inconsistent to lead this team anywhere this year and that’s why Michael Vick will be back in action!

    Let the good times roll……
