Michael Vick a Backup? Controversial QB Wants Kevin Kolb As Eagles’ Starter’

September 21, 2010   ·     ·   Jump to comments

In a rare moment of humility, Michael Vick publicly stated that Kevin Kolb should be the Eagles starting quarterback. This, despite Vick's performance in leading Philadelphia to a win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
"I came into this season and this year as the backup and that's been my mindset," Vick said. "I've been working hard to be reliable whenever I'm needed. That's the way it is, and the way it's gonna be throughout the season."
Vick was more than just reliable in his limited action as a fill-in for Kolb after the first-time starter suffered a concussion in week one against the Green Bay Packers.
Vick threw for 284 yards and two touchdowns against the Lions, and has 458 yards and three touchdowns for the season. He's achieved a passer rating of over 100 in consecutive games for only the second time in his career.
Vick's comments quickly put to rest any quarterback controversy in Philadelphia, and may also put to rest questions about Vick's character.
