  1. Andy Reid did the same thing with Michael Vick.
    Where are all Reid’s critics?
    East Coast bias anyone?
    Bill Billichick isn’t an open book when it comes to personnel moves either. He’s heralded as the best coach in the business.

    Which one-liner are you referencing? The one about Childress losing credibility in the Vikings’ locker room? If that’s the case, I hardly think Reid would lose credibility like Childress. Favre was brought in to be the STARTER. Vick was not. He’s just being brought in as a backup/gimmick play QB.
    Now, if McNabb goes down for the season and they turn to Vick as starter (and he subsequently plays like Michael Vick), then I could see your point.
