Reid Names Vick Starting Quarterback

Head coach Andy Reid has named Michael Vick the starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles.

In his first start since 2006, Vick completed 21-of-34 passes for 284 yards and two touchdowns (108.0 QB Rating) to lead the Eagles to a 35-32 win over the Detroit Lions. Vick also rushed seven times for 37 yards, but showed tremendous poise in the pocket as he kept his eyes downfield in an attempt to make plays with his arm first.

In the six quarters that Vick played after replacing the injured Kevin Kolb, Vick is 37-of-58 (64 percent) for 459 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions.

Reid will be speaking with reporters shortly. We will have a special edition of Eagles Live! beginning at 6:15 PM.
