After Michael Vick's remarkable 2010 season, there was no doubt about who the 2011 starter would be.
Last year, Vick had 3,694 yards of offense (passing and rushing) as well as 30 touchdowns in only 12 starts. Extrapolated over a 16-game season, that would be around 4,800 yards and 40 touchdowns!
Unfortunately, that brings me to the big concern with Vick: Can he stay healthy for the entire season?
If he can, he will be incredible yet again with another year in Andy Reid's offense and another year to build chemistry with his receivers. If not, the backup quarterback will have to step in and play well for the Eagles to contend for the NFC East title yet again.
The Eagles traded away last year's backup Kevin Kolb. However, they also signed former Titans starter Vince Young to back up Vick. While Young is not a great quarterback, he is good enough to start for a couple of games and keep the ship from sinking. We will see how well Young develops with the Eagles coaching staff that has had a lot of success with quarterbacks.
Despite Young's presence on the team, the starting job unquestionably belongs to Michael Vick, who should continue to excel.
