Vick to the Bench

And he's saying all the right things:


Michael Vick told ESPN on Monday that there should be no quarterback controversy in Philadelphia -- he's OK with Kevin Kolb as the Eagles' starter. Vick, one day after leading the Eagles past the Detroit Lions with 284 passing yards, two touchdowns and another 37 rushing yards, said in a SportsCenter interview that Kolb is the Eagles' "leader" and that he was "OK" being the backup.

I didn't see much of the game, but this is probably the right thing to do. If Reid truly believed that Kolb was McNabb's replacement, then it's understandable. Vick will be fine. He'll be playing a lot more--either this season, or next.
