The sports cover of the Philadelphia Daily News wasn’t subtle Monday morning.
“Vick Era Begins?” the headline reads.
Eagles coach Andy Reid says no; Kevin Kolb will start if he’s cleared for Sunday’s game against Detroit. Of course, that’s a big if. And Michael Vick’s post-game comments won’t stop the phones from burning up in Philadelphia on Monday.
Vick didn’t say anything about Kolb; he was just trying to make a point about how he proved his value in an uneven, but ultimately impressive performance as Kolb’s replacement.
Complicating matters for Reid: The Eagles play the Lions this week. In theory, that’s a good week to get Kolb time off following his concussion. In reality, another big offensive performance from Vick could only make it tougher on Kolb when he gets back his starting job.
