Andy Reid says he's okay with being bad guy in Michael Vick, Kevin Kolb switch
If there's a bad guy in the Philadelphia Eagles' change in starting quarterbacks, it's Andy Reid, not Michael Vick.
Take it from Andy Reid.
Reid said he spoke only with Kolb about the change and Kolb's future "I want Kevin Kolb on this football team." (Shortly thereafter, of course, Pro Football Talk cited a radio report indicating that the Cleveland Browns had called to inquire about Kolb's availability.)
"This is all about Michael Vick and the way he has played the game," Reid said. "... That's the important part here."
Reid reiterated that Vick would start the rest of the season. "I didn't appoint him for one week," Reid said today. "That's not what I did."
Donovan McNabb was asked about the drama and told reporters (via Jason Reid): "Well, that's Philadelphia. Things like that happen.I've been a part of that for 11 years. Obviously, as you said, it just doesn't stop."
