Reid wants both Vick, Kolb back next year

The Eagles are in a bit of a tricky situation now that their season is over -- Michael Vick is the clear-cut semi-savior (or something) and Kevin Kolb is the underpriced, but valuable backup who now might want to be traded so he can start.

For Andy Reid, it's easy though -- he wants both quarterbacks on his roster in 2011.

"Listen, I'd love to have them all back," Reid said Monday when asked about Kolb's status, via the Philadelphia Daily News. "I'm fired up to hear him say that [that he wants to be a starter somewhere in the NFL]. You want any player, especially a quarterback, to want to be a great player. That's important at that position. I would love to have him back. Same with Michael. I want him back. They are tremendous players."

The thing is, Reid doesn't really have too big a decision to make, because he can most likely have his cake and eat it too. That's because the Eagles should have the ability to franchise Vick (and will certainly have the opportunity to ink him to a long-term deal if they so desire) and Kolb's theirs.

Kolb's also shown he's enough of a team player to not complain about his role too much, and he's certainly not established enough to demand a trade with any real repercussions, particularly given the recent contract extension he signed.

There's a possibility that a problem arises if a) the franchise tag doesn't survive collective bargaining negotiations and b) a quarterback-needy team like the Panthers, Cardinals or Vikings lob a Godfather offer at the Eagles.

Only then will Reid really have to worry about saying anything other than "I really love both of these guys" and generic lines of the like.

  Your absolutely right. I would keep both - to save Vick from injury and fatigue. Plat the both - ending up with each playing 8 games.....alternate halves with this one playing and that one playing. Don't let press or opponent know which will play when.

So you are saying you would rather dudes rape girls than fight dogs? Better yet, you're ok with your sister, mother, or God forbid daughter going out on a date with a rapist, but that dude who paid to have dogs fight and then killed (or in reality, put out of their misery) is a no, no?
Awesome post and 5 stars for you.  But here's the problem... idiots on these boards don't look at it that way.  In their mind their wife or sister or daughter isn't likely to be raped... odds are so slim they can't even think about it so they don't.   But as soon as somebody fights and then kills dogs then look their puppy in the eyes, cry a little and hate the man that did it forever.  It's really weird... I don't get it !!!

Finally, these posters will go fight for Ben till death because he wasn't officially charged and convicted.  Forget the fact that 2 woman from 2 different states filed complaints within 1 calendar year... coincidence the idiots say.  Forget the fact the tape from the surveillance camera magically got recorderd over..... accident they say.  Forget the fact her friends said they were stopped by bodyguards when they wanted to check on their friend.. liars they say.   Forget the fact he took a picture that's all over the net hours earlier with the guy the cop that just happened to take the girls official complaint... coincidence they say.  Forget the fact the cop insulted the girl.. swearing at her calling her names.. she's a liar they say.  Forget the fact the cop RESIGNED from his career after that..... coincidence they say.... forget the fact Ben hired one of the top law firms in North American who in turn hired one of the top private investigators in North America to find dirt on the girls.. that's their job they say..... forget the fact when the chief of police held that press conference telling the world he doesn't have enough evidence to convict the cop looked like he was going to cry.. he looked frustrated... he looked upset....  he must have been tired people will say.... Ben is innocent they say....

What a joke !!! Ben is a rapist... end of story.  A convicted rapist? No.  But a rapist he is......   Vick?  Yeah... killing pitbulls is just as bad... gotcha !!!

It is hard for me to say which is worse between big ben's crimes or vick's but vick was CONVICTED and took countless lives of animals that trusted and counted on him for love and care
Like it or not, you called Big Ben's actions "crimes"... because you KNOW that Big Ben committed crimes against these woman.  Of course he couldn't admit it... he would have served more then 2 years and never played in the NFL again.... his life would have been over.

And if truly is hard for you to say which crime is worse, then you are just as messed up as Ben and Vick alike.   How in God's name can you even compare people with animals?  Are you nuts ?????   We eat animals every day as a society all over the world.  We legally hunt animals for sport.  We can lock animals in a cage at any moment.. once again legally.  We put them on chains.. legally.    And you don't know the difference between the two crimes????    But yeah... you're better then they are....

And finally, don't try to make it worse then it already is.  Vick hurt PITBULLS !!! Yes, IT WAS DISGUSTING WHAT HE DID..... everything he did was stupid.. awful.. gross.. ridiculous... but you didn't say pitbulls you said "animals" and even said it in plural implying that he hurts animals in general. And no, these "animals" weren't raised to be loved and they didn't depend on love from him or anybody else.  They were raised to be mean, vicious.. and FIGHT..... they were raised to fight until death... is that wrong? YES.... but don't make it appear like Vick kills your typical family dogs and cats and parrots for God sakes.....

He grew up seeing that .. he lived it.. he was brought up in it... unfortunately people in the world we live in become followers and not the leaders we want them to be or should be.... but it is what it is.... At least Vick paid for his crimes more so then any athlete I've ever seen in my life in any sport.... Big Ben still hasn't paid for his..... and probably never will.
