Eagles QB situation still uncertain

Posted on: February 24, 2010 11:15 am

According to the Philadelphia Daily News , the Eagles are publicly putting forth the attitude that QB Donovan McNabb -- scheduled to rake in an estimated $11 million next season -- will remain with the team.

There has been no official indication from the Eagles that they are looking to unload McNabb or his backup QBs, Kevin Kolb or Michael Vick . All three would be in the final year of their contract if they remained with the Eagles for the 2010 season. However, the Eagles also have reportedly confirmed that other teams have inquired about all three QBs.

The story notes that there is a strong chance that Vick (who would make $5 million this year) will be traded before the NFL Draft in April. McNabb remains a question mark as well, but for now, the official stance is that he's staying in Philly.

When asked recently about locker room leadership in the wake of Brian Westbrook's release, head coach Andy Reid acted as though McNabb's status was a given.

"Well, Donovan is obviously here," he replied, according to the Daily News.

Eagles QB situation still uncertain

Ok let's see spectate if Mcnabb stays or Mcnabb goes.  If Mcnabb stays: the eagles have the best chance for a super bowl run, they have to worry about his health (face the facts Mcnabb has trouble staying healthy), and they have to pay him 11 million dollars.  If they get rid of Mcnabb and let Kolb start you get: to see how good Kolb is and see if he is worth resigning, not a good chance for a super bowl run, you get value from the Mcnabb trade, and you free up 11 million dollars.  I appreciate with Mcnabb's job with the eagles, but if someone offered a first run pick for Mcnabb the eagles better jump on that, but nothing less then that!  I like Kolb, he was the first player to pass for over 300 yds and yes it was the Chiefs and the super bowl winning New Orleans who did a pick six against Payton Manning.
