"The Eagles' Worst Nightmare"

In quite a few cases over the past week I've heard the Eagles' current quarterback predicament- Kevin Kolb played badly, got injured, and Michael Vick played well, with Kolb scheduled to come back- described as "The Eagles' worst nightmare." To which I ask- why?

The Eagles' worst nightmare, I'd imagine, would be if they had NO good quarterbacks, or both of them injured, or Kolb going out injured and Vick looking terrible. If they were the Arizona Cardinals, in other words, that would be their worst nightmare. If you're two games into the season and you're not 0-2, it's probably not your worst nightmare.

If you take the position that the Eagles' management are evil, sadistic Machiavellians who hate their fans and purposely do the exact opposite of what they want- and that's probably a majority opinion in the Anti-Eagles Movement- then yes, Vick playing well in Kolb's stead is the worst possible outcome. But I'd imagine Andy Reid and Joe Banner and Jeffrey Lurie are happy to be 1-1 instead of 0-2. And, once again, they don't care what the fans think, nor should they.

And I thought stupid conspiracy theories about Eagles quarterbacks were a thing of the past once McNabb was gone...

UPDATE: Looks like, in a rare case of WIP conventional wisdom and Andy Reid aligning, Vick will become the starting QB after all... And in today's sports radio moment of the day, a WIP afternoon caller spent 10 minutes berating Ike Reese for "destroying" Kevin Kolb, as though Reese singlehandedly had the power to move time, space and Andy Reid.

No one has any power to move Andy Reid except perhaps for Joey Vento.
