Reid confirms Vick is starter for rest of year

Andy Reid addressed the media shortly before lunchtime in Philadelphia and you'll never believe this, but the topic was Michael Vick starting. Although Reid said plenty about the issue on Tuesday night when he initially announced the decision, there were plenty of nuggets that came from the presser.

Primarily, that Vick is in fact the starter for the rest of the season (or at least until, presumably, he gives Reid reason not to start him).

"Yes," Reid said laughing. "I didn't appoint him for one week, that's not what I did."

What Reid didn't find as funny was the question regarding the possibility of Kevin Kolb not being on the Eagles roster come the 2010 trade deadline or the start of the 2011 season.

"I can't predict anything down that far -- nobody in this league can do that," Reid said. "That's ridiculous. It's very similar to things that were reported -- there was nobody that influenced this call, it was my decision."

In case you don't understand "coach-speak," that's the definition of a non-answer.

To his credit, though, Reid did respond to a follow-up about listening to a trade for Kolb with a resounding, "No, I want Kevin Kolb on this football team."

But even that isn't a guarantee that Kolb will be on the roster -- there's the possibility of him being traded this season (highly unlikely) or being traded before next season (if Vick goes All-Pro and takes Philly to the playoff, you best believe he's getting at minimum a franchise tag). Reid at the very least wouldn't guarantee Kolb's future, even though he was willing to quite clearly do so when he traded Donovan McNabb.

That, clearly, would put Kolb's long term status in Philly at jeopardy, even though Reid remains behind the youngster.

"He was the first person I met with, and that includes coaches and administration and anyone else." "And I felt that was very important in this situation."

Just remember that things change pretty quickly in Philadelphia.

Yeah, well I do think it was a bad decision by Andy Reid to go with Vick as the starting QB. Just like I thought it was a bad idea for you to bet me $50 that your Mets would finish ABOVE .500 for the year. Ummm... don't look now, but they'd have to go 8-1 in their last 9 games to finish above .500. IF the Mets go 7-2, the bet would be a PUSH... otherwise 6-3 or worse and you lose... JUST LIKE THE METS.

Care to respond?

I'm figuring no... but it should be interesting to see if you just hide like a little girl like you have much of the last month.

Vick reads the defense also, that is usually what happen when he rushes for about 150-200yards......And you might want to check out New England's players when they won the Super Bowl *HE WAS LOADED* Russell cannot or should I say should not be put in the same category as VIC and I give that to you about the win over the Lions but what about the game before that, maybe if Kolb got hurt earlier, the Philly whould have won.
