The Eagles won a game Sunday with their backup quarterback.

The drill: Begin the controversy.

It's been going on for decades, so it will happen now. Sides will form. Young or Vick? Vick or Young?

The answer: When Michael Vick recovers from broken ribs, it's his job, should be his job, must be his job if the Eagles want to steal the NFC East, which is highly possible.

To his credit Monday, Reid said as much. Of course, he once said Kevin Kolb was his quarterback, then had him benched by the next morning. But he sounded sincere. He is hoping Young can help the Birds survive Vick's injury, not become the franchise's No. 1 quarterback.

That would be the right play call --- a rare one this year, come to think of it.
