Reid had Kolb’s back heading into the Detroit game and he still supported the Houston University product after Vick played well, only to change his mind and go with Vick.
I know we just went over this, but Reid’s indecisiveness needs to be pointed out here because it shows how much pressure Vick was under heading into a road game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
What would happen if Vick faltered, the offense was inconsistent and the Eagles lost?
None of that happened. Vick validated his performance from the previous week by going 17-of-31 for 291 yards. Oh, and he just so happened to throw three TDs and rush for another.
