Michael Vick made a comment following the Eagles' loss to the Packers that involved something along the lines of if he'd played all four quarters, the team would have won. You don't have to be a smart football mind to understand that, potentially, that could be considered a shot at Kevin Kolb (who, by the way, Vick is apparently good friends with).

Vick said Monday, though , that he wasn't attempting to undermine the Eagles' quarterback who is still technically the starter.

"I don't know how you could take that comment and try to make it seem like I'm trying to say I'm a better quarterback than Kevin," Vick said. "It was about me just having more time to bring us back and win the game. If I had more time maybe we had a better shot at winning the game so I could orchestrate a comeback."

Hmm. That's one way to look at it, but I'm pretty sure that an easier way to say "I wish I had more time out there" is "I wish I had more time out there to finish the comeback." Not "if I had been out there for four quarters maybe we would have had a chance to win the game."

Still, if they're as good of buddies as is believed, it's pretty unfathomable that Vick would rip Kolb publicly, especially when he'll probably get a chance to start this week anyway. He just needs to choose his words better.

One last thing:

Fantasy value? Really? Please tell me that you're the schmuck who drafted him. I'm sure Andy Reid is sitting in his office right now thinking: "Well, if I start Vick, his fantasy value would skyrocket!"

I don't understand how you can call Kolb a bust when he's only started two games in his career. Just so you know, he threw for over 300 in both of those and won one of them. The loss was largely due to the fact that he was playing from behind most of the game. You know who is a bust? Vick. Sure he gives them some options on offense, but before the dogfighting incident, tell me what he's ever won? Didn't think so. Besides, if you're going to tab someone as the QB of the future and release your Pro Bowl QB to hand over the keys to the car, you'd look pretty silly if you yank him after one game.

One more thing to cover the whole "well he had a horrible preseason argument that I have been hearing." You know who else has repeatedly bad preseasons? Peyton Manning. Oh and Eagles in the Super Bowl because Vick is in there? That's just idiotic. Tell me again how many times he's been there? Without buying tickets that is?

Vick NEEDS to start!  Kolb's a bust, and in order for Philly to avert a disaster of biblical proportions...oh, just sit Kolb another year for Pete's sake!  Vicks fantasy value would skyrocket anyway, meaning a bunch of people, not just people with a special interest with the organization would just salivate profusely over a potential Quarterback change in week 2.  These dummies GAVE AWAY their guy, so you just find a running game, and the Eagles soar to the Super Bowl!
