FFE: Shouldn't you be worrying about your injury-plagued Eagles?
Snark: Well, I'm worried about Big5, but I'm not too panicked about the rest of the team (at least not yet). I see us resting McNabb through the bye and heading into weeks 5-17 with our franchise QB and, at worst, a 1-2 (more likely 2-1, even possibly 3-0) record.
FFE: You think they'll play Vick if McNabb can't go? Or Garcia?
Snark: Sunday? My money says Kolb gets the start and, as long as he's not stinking up the joint, plays. If he *is* stinking up the joint, Jeff "Insurance Policy" Garcia goes in.
Vick's not eligible until week 3 against the Chiefs, and even then I think it's unlikely he starts. Vick's a whim who was picked up for the NFL equivalent of the change in the sofa cushions ($1M) - at that price, he can be cannon fodder for all they need to care.
I think what AR is evaluating right now is Kolb's ability to be the #2 (and eventual #1, because McNabb can't play forever, all Farves to the contrary). The spot's his to lose, and that chance starts in just under 4 days.
It's the most wonderful time of the year! It's the most wonderful time of the year!
