Michael Vick earned himself a starting job by being -- of all things -- a pocket passer.

Vick will take over as the Philadelphia Eagles' No. 1 quarterback, coach Andy Reid said Tuesday, one day after he announced he would go back to Kevin Kolb.

"When someone is playing at the level Michael Vick is playing, you have to give him an opportunity," Reid said. "This isn't about Kevin Kolb's play. You're talking about Michael Vick as one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL right now."

Vick is considered the greatest scrambling quarterback in NFL history, but he won the job over Kolb by demonstrating he no longer has a run-first mentality.

Kolb missed the last six quarters because of a concussion, and Vick played well in his absence. Kolb has been cleared to practice and was expected to run the first-team offense Wednesday.

"Kevin is fine. It's not an injury-related issue," Reid said. "It's not about judging him. He's going to be a championship-caliber quarterback."

Vick threw for 175 yards and one touchdown and ran for 103 yards in a 27-20 season-opening loss to the Green Bay Packers. He passed for 284 yards and two TDs in a 35-32 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

This is really a no brainer. Vick has been playing very well.

Bout time! Why do you want to put an unexperienced QB in Kevin Kolb doesn't make sense. Vick showed last week he can still be effective in this league

Andy Reid is an idiot though. Sit there all off-season saying Kolb can be like McNabb, trying to make fans believe then this quick just change the QB? :laughing:

Sucks for Kevin Kolb, he isn't going to get an opportunity to learn from his mistakes if he stays in Philly. I can't see Philly trading Kolb though, they just don't have enough depth at the position.
