He's got the Jaguars after that. If Vick wins two straight games, it would be very difficult to pull him for a quarterback that looked as poorly as Kolb did in Week 1.


Very good inf. Thanks for the update! So what is Vicks outlook for the season? I find him very appealing as a fantasy QB moving forward.

Vick was not even really worth owning when he was at his best in ATL. I mean sometimes he would have good games but whatever.


I think he definitely is worth picking-up. I wouldn't break the bank though. If he shreds the Lions and the Jaguars he could be a solid starting QB that you got for almost nada.

The Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane confirms a report by the NFL Network's Michael Lombardi that Michael Vick will start Sunday at Detroit.

Kolb has finally passed the first stage of his concussion testing, but he's already missed the majority of the game-planning for this week. For obvious reasons, the Eagles' plan differs quite a bit with Vick under center. How the events unfold this weekend will go a long way toward determining the Week 3 starter.

Picked Vick up for 3 real dollars transaction fee in my Kolb league. With Roethlisberger as my other QB, I had no choice. Don't like Vick's dog fighting history but I will take the points if he ends up being Philly's QB1. Watching Kolb on Sunday, it's clear he needs to improve a lot or sit on the bench. Also, another concussion is only a head butt away. after you get one, you have to be worried about a second.

Temper your long term Vick expectations for now. The Eagles didn't trade away McNabb so Vick could start and Reid doesn't see him as the long term solution. Kolb will get many many more chances to win or lose this job.

Im really hoping that Kolb just had a bad game for whatever reason. If they put Vick in there then the production/value of Desean Jackson goes into the dump.... And im really hoping Desean can have a decent year at least..

Looks like Vick might be the franchise QB in Philly....

The Philadelphia Eagles have received numerous calls about the availability of quarterback Kevin Kolb from several teams, according to a senior team official.

"We have had calls," the team official said Wednesday

When asked Wednesday whether Kolb would be on the Eagles' roster after the Oct. 19 trade deadline, Eagles coach Andy Reid said, "Listen, I can't predict anything down that far, nobody in this league can do that."

Kolb should be starting for at least the next couple weeks. That said, I just picked up Shawn Hill rather than Kolb for this week's Lions/Rams match up. Hill is performing like a top ten QB. Kolb... not.

I have NO idea where this came from. I have DeSean Jackson on one of my leagues, and for each week that Kolb starts DeSean has less than 30 yards and ZERO touchdown (week1 - 30 yds 0 td, week4 - 19 yds 0 td), and when vick starts, he DeSean blew up with 4+ reception each week with 135yds, and 153 yds PLUS 1 TD. It's obvious that Kolb is a plague when it comes to DJ's production.

Yeah Kolb and Jackson are like oil and water it seems. Im just wondering if maybe Jackson does not know that Kolb cant throw the ball as far as McNabb and Vick can lol. Kolb looks up and sees him open but says to himself oh crap i cant throw it that far!!
