Philly to use QB by committee?

Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News - [Full Article]

Could we be seeing some version of a two-quarterback system with the Eagles moving forward?

Mike Vick had a second straight impressive performance, constantly spinning away from unblocked pass-rushers who seemed to have him dead in their sights and throwing for 284 yards and two touchdowns.

Kevin Kolb will start next week barring a medical setback, but expect to see a lot of Vick as well.

Coach Andy Reid said after the game that Vick will continue to get his oppotrunities and that more plays are in place for him this season than we saw last year. Part of that is because Vick is in better shape and knows the offense better than he did; part of it also is because Donovan McNabb is no longer here.

Reid showed no reluctance to swap Vick in for Kolb during the early stages of the opener against Green Bay. Before Kolb left the game, Vick was in at quarterback for six plays and wide receiver for one.

Fantasy Impact: 

It seems like Kolb will have a lot to overcome to make him a worthy fantasy starter: bad half in week 1, concussion, and now Vick's success in week 2. Hopefully for owners, the slow process begins next week vs. Jacksonville. Right now, he doesn't seem like a good start based on his confidence and Vick's play, so hopefully owners have better options to fall back on. We'll continue to monitor the situation.
