When McNabb left Philadelphia, I think the city may have been at a standstill for a few moments.
Eagles fans had to accept the fact the our Philly boy—the man who was bashed when drafted, benched in the middle of the season, all-time Eagles passing leader, led the Eagles to a Super Bowl, and countless playoff appearances—was gone. Our man of the decade was gone.
Vick is the type of player that can fill the big gaping hole that McNabb left, a franchise quarterback that can lead the Eagles to that elusive Super Bowl win. He has all the tools and all the players around him to finally take that Lombardi Trophy back to Philadelphia.
Believe me, I am not happy McNabb is gone—I teared up a little when I heard he was traded—but I am looking towards the future. The future should lie in the hands of a veteran quarterback like Vick.
Kolb can learn overtime from Vick, as Andy Reid was trying to do with Kolb and McNabb. The fact is Kolb just does not seem ready to be a starting quarterback, maybe in a few years.
