QB Controversy Brewing in Philly

I bet if Kevin Kolb had things to do over he would love to start off his era in Philly in better fashion than what transpired yesterday. Kolb looked stiff and seemed to tip off his reads which almost led to him throwing three different interceptions. Kolb was 5-10 for 24 yards and was sacked twice in a first half where the Eagles only garnered three first downs and a total of three points. At half time it was determined Kolb had a concussion so head coach Andy Reid turned to Michael Vick to lead the Eagles in the second half. All Vick did was rush for 103 yards, pass for 175 and he threw a touchdown pass to Jeremy Maclin. Kolb won’t practice until Friday at the earliest and he must pass a specific evaluation exam before he can be cleared to play. With all of this going on it seems Vick will get most of the snaps this week in practice which would make one think he will be the starter this weekend against Detroit. If Vick is able to perform up to the caliber he displayed yesterday is there any way Reid and the Eagles can then go back to Kolb?
