Five Reasons That Michael Vick Should Start, and the One Reason He Won't

It turns out Michael Vick can still play.... In fact, he might even be better than he ever was before. Vick has been electric the first two weeks of the season.

Vick showed that he's still got a lot of miles left on those legs of his in week one against Green Bay. After Kevin Kolb was knocked out of the game at half time, Vick came in and lit everyone up: He was 16-24 for 175 yards with a touchdown and ran the 11 times for 103 yards, and he did this in 2 quarters worth of work.

More importantly, Vick brought a stagnant Eagles offense back to life and almost led them to a comeback victory over a very talented Green Bay Packers team.

Vick got his first start in four years in week two against the Lions, and he made the most of it. He went 21-34 for 284 yards and two touchdowns in a 35-32 victory over Detroit. Vick proved that he could be a productive pocket passer using his legs to avoid sacks and finding open receivers down field.

Head Coach Andy Reid has already announced that he is sticking with Kevin Kolb as his starting quarterback, and Vick said all the right things when he was asked about it.

Here are the 5 reasons Mike Vick should start and the 1 reason he won't.
