Why the Eagles Should Think Twice About Trading QB Kevin Kolb

Let’s put the brakes on for one second.

The Philadelphia Eagles have had a quarterback situation that could not have been scripted better, since the first week of the 2010 NFL season, Kevin Kolb suffered a concussion and the Kolb-Era ended with as much hype as what it began with. Michael Vick stepped in, and from the moment he dropped back in that pocket and started firing those passes like missile-guided rockets, and then scrambling out of the pocket and keeping plays alive, Andy Reid had made up his mind.

Philadelphia’s season concluded with Vick being a potential MVP candidate, and the Eagles’ second consecutive one-and-done loss in the postseason to the Green Bay Packers. That loss was handed to the Eagles even with Vick under center. Even with the redemption season in full-swing, and all of the momentum of having home field advantage in Philadelphia, the Eagles still lost in the first round of the playoffs.

The Eagles have made it clear that they have intentions to resign Vick, and more than likely to a long-term deal. To make the deal even better for Vick, the Eagles organization is going to throw everything and then a few more million to make sure they lock him in. Reid and the Eagles are salivating at the thought of signing Vick to a five year deal, and then pulling a ‘New England’ and winning a series of Super Bowls.
