Michael Vick to start against the Lions in Week 2?

Eagle fans that enjoyed Michael Vick’s performance against the Packers on Sunday might get a taste of it again in Week 2.

With Kevin Kolb’s playing status up in the air due to a concussion, beat writer Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News thinks it’s likely that Vick will start against the Lions this Sunday. The backup came in yesterday and nearly led the Eagles to a come back against the Packers by completing 16 of 24 passes for 175 yards and one touchdown, as well as rushing for 103 yards on 11 carries. Philly eventually lost 27-20, however.

The Lions’ secondary is one of the weakest in the league, so it’ll be a good matchup for either Kolb or Vick. But it’ll be interesting to see what happens if Vick plays well again while Kolb is on the sidelines because it could spark a quarterback controversy in Philly. Andy Reid maintains that Kolb is the starter and he’ll certainly have to do more than look shaky for one half against one of the league’s best defenses (Green Bay) to lose his job. But when it boils down to it, the only thing that matters in the NFL is winning so this is going to be a storyline to follow for the next couple of weeks.
