Spuds Speaks on Vick, Eagles QB Situation


To me, the true value of making that decision to sign Vick has yet to be determined. I wonder, looking ahead, what is next for Vick and for the Eagles. The entire quarterback situation is a fascinating one, and head coach Andy Reid is correct when he says the Eagles have a great situation there with Donovan McNabb, Kevin Kolb and Vick all under contract through 2010 (Vick’s deal is a team option worth a reported $5.2 million). How many teams have three quarterbacks who have won games in the NFL?

At the same time, it would be highly, highly unusual to have all three playing in ‘10 on the final year of their contracts. Imagine the constant questions and scrutiny and the endless speculation about the future. It would seem — and this is merely my perspective — that the Eagles would be best served to listen to any offers that might be forthcoming and use the quarterbacks as assets and see how they can strengthen the roster by dealing a quarterback or two should solid offers reach the trading table.

Because we all value his expert opinion so much. Hmmmm, the Eagles should listen to all offers. So brilliant.
