Assuming Donovan McNabb is not 100% by Week 3, which backup QB would you start? (Edited 09/15/09 09:01PM by Drakesrake_77)
This is a hard one. As an Eagles fan, I'd like to see Kevin Kolb finally show something in his upcoming start in week 2 against New Orleans. However, since McNabb has gone down, the Eagles have cut AJ Feely, signed Jeff Garcia, and moved Michael Vick from Inactive, to the active 53 man roster.
Everyone knows that Jeff Garcia is somewhat of a hero to a lot of Philly fans after he took them to the 2nd round of the playoffs in 2006, but he is coming of a dismal performance in Tampa Bay last year when he failed to defeat the 4-12 Oakland Raiders to secure a playoff spot; ironically setting the Eagles up to make the playoffs.
And of course, everyone is anxious to see what Michael Vick still has to offer this Eagles offense after his long and much-publisized stay in the pen, and Week 3 is when he gets officially reinstated. So, amidst all this controversy, who do you think should get the nod for the starting QB spot in Week 3 vs. the Chiefs.
One thing is for certain, Donovan McNabb had better be ready to play when he returns. The last thing he needs, is to go down with another injury soon after coming back from this one, and open the door for one of these other guys to step in. McNabb is my guy. I think he's the best QB they have ever had in Philadelphia, but there are a lot of Pro Bowls between his backups! I just hope he stays out long enough to come back 100%, and ready to go. Otherwise, he'll probably be hearing chants of, "We want Vick," AND "We want Garcia" perhaps at the same time!
