Andy Reid wants both QBs back

1/10/2011

Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid met with reporters Monday and he was quickly asked who would be the starting quarterback when the team reconvenes this offseason. "We'll see," he said.

I think most folks would be shocked if the Eagles didn't place the franchise tag on Michael Vick, who is set to become a free agent. But Reid has nothing to gain by tipping his hand at this point in the proceedings.

"Listen, I'd love to have them all back," Reid said when asked if Kolb might return as a backup. "I'm fired up to hear him say that [that he wants to be a starter somewhere in the league]. You want any player, especially a quarterback, to want to be a great player. That's important at that position. I would love to have him back. Same with Michael. I want him back. They are tremendous players."

Reid also said he wanted all of his assistant coaches to return in 2011. But it will be interesting to see if Marty Morhninweg gets a serious look as a head coach. He's done some remarkable work with Vick over the past two seasons and a lot of people across the league thinks Mornhinweg deserves another crack at a head-coaching position.
