Reid: Kolb will start if he's healthy

The first and second halves for the Philadelphia Eagles were about as different as the two quarterbacks who led them -- Kevin Kolb struggled mightly (24 yards passing!) in the first and as Josh wrote, Michael Vick reminded us of the Vick of old during the second half as Philly nearly stormed back on the Green Bay Packers.

That second half performance won't matter though, if you believe Andy Reid, as the head coach indicated following the game that regardless of how well Vick played, Kolb would remain the starter provided he's cleared to play.

Reid's decision isn't all that surprising, really. After all, while Vick looked great in relief duty, Kolb is still his quarterback of the future, and just because he got booed by Philly fans doesn't mean, well, anything.

Creating a quarterback controversy would be foolish right now, in that it wouldn't benefit Kolb's confidence, it would undermine the team's confidence in Kolb, and it would immediately make people wonder why Donovan McNabb -- and not Kolb -- was the player traded in the offseason.

Additionally, if Vick came plummeting back to Earth the next week, Reid's quarterback situation would be completely untenable. The worst case now involves Kolb not being cleared and Vick starting against Detroit.
