Philadelphia Eagles backup QB Michael Vick was, or wasn't, involved in an altercation in the early hours last Friday, that much we all know. We also know that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell could enforce a multiple-game suspension on Vick for violating league policies.

Vick made the right move and decided to leave his birthday celebration before any shooting took place, but he could still face infractions simply for making the NFL look bad because he was "involved" in a negative occurrence.

What the Philadelphia Eagles front office and the fans don't know is if Vick does get suspened, who will be the backup to QB Kevin Kolb?

Would the Eagles look to rookie QB Mike Kafka, who was drafted in the fourth round (122nd overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft, or will they explore available options not currently on the roster?

I would imagine the Eagles would look to a more proven QB to be Kolb's backup if he should go down for an extended period of time.

Before the Donovan McNabb blockbuster trade occurred, it was highly anticipated that the Eagles and former Eagles QB Jeff Garcia would once again spark a contract discussion.

At that time, Garcia himself said he would welcome the opportunity to come back to Philadelphia to play football—even if it was on a mentor-type basis.

It would be a perfect opportunity to bring in another true west coast offense quarterback to continue working with and developing Kevin Kolb.

It would also be the second time in two seasons that Garcia would return to Philadelphia to aid in a Michael Vick suspension!

Also, every Eagle fan knows that Garcia can carry the team if he has to, as he did in 2006 when he led the team to a five-game winning streak and a postseason appearance.

The Eagles front office, Michael Vick, his agent, and the fans must wait until Commissioner Roger Goodell renders his verdict and drops the gavel before anything happens!

Keep the faith Philadelphians, Vick had nothing to do with this altercation so I don't feel it could be justified to penalize him!
