Young played a good game tonight. Guys like him and Tebow are play makers and they know how to win even if their game isn't as smooth as Aaron Rodgers.


Should Young get the starting job?

I'm not sure he played a "good" game tonight. The Eagles defense won this game.

You don't need to be over the top all you have to do is win and Young did what he does best 4th quarter play maker.

Vick start first 3 quarters with Young in as wildcat for some plays and then sub in Young for 4th quarter unless lead is insurmountable

I absolutely knew this would be a topic of discussion today even before last night's game. Had a feeling that VY would be ok and the controversy would begin. I honestly don't know what the answer is.

Michael Vick hasn't been that great this year, but he isn't the only problem. This team has a lot of injuries and the offensive lines has been horrible this year. I don't think putting Vince Young in is really going to change things. If anything, I think Michael Vick is a slightly better player than Vince Young. He's a better decision maker but overall they have similar abilities.

Vince Young is on a 1 year contract and is essentially playing for a contract next year somewhere else. He won't get the staring job in Philly over a healty Vick.

The problem is not vick. Andy Reid is the problem. He should have upgrades his line instead of going out and getting a bunch of talent that cant get the ball because the line cant hold the rush.

Yes. VY should be given the opportunity to start, especially is he starts vs the Pats and has a good game. It was refreshing seeing an actual QB under center for the Eagles..not an "athlete." Vick takes off running at the slightest hint of pressure....Young actually had a pocket presence. Once he shook off the rust yesterday, he looked good. And the clutch 4th quarter performance was great...unlike the usual Vick choke jobs. I don't care how much money Vick is being paid, you play whoever will help you win.
