Reid Names Vick new Starting Quarterback
The 284-yard-passing, two-touchdown and 37-yard-rushing performance Michael Vick displayed on Sunday vs. the Detroit Lions still was enough to sway head coach Andy Reid to name him the starter. After Kevin Kolb left the game with a concussion in the first game of the season, it was Vick who stepped up and led the charge against Green Bay. The injury proved to be a concussion that would sideline Kolb for last Sunday’s game. This gave the starting job to Michael Vick who hadn’t started since 2006 for the Atlanta Falcons. Vick proved himself on Sunday in the game against Detroit by showing his arm and flashing his speed that made him so successful. On Tuesday, Sept. 21, Reid officially announced that Vick would be the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles until further notice.

US soccer star Struts’ face on FIFA cover

The most recent FIFA-‘11 cover has moved away from the stars in Europe and has come across the pond. Landon Donovan, U.S. soccer star, was chosen to be highlighted on the FIFA 2011 video game cover. It is a huge accomplishment that a U.S. player was chosen, mainly because soccer has just recently gained more fans with the World Cup this past summer.

Saints lose important ingredient to Super Bowl recipe

New Orleans running back Reggie Bush has a fractured right fibula that may keep him out for up to six weeks. Bush’s skill comes mostly from his speed and quickness, something that the Saints truly valued. No doubt the Saints have made Bush an asset to their offense and without him they may come across many scheming issues. “He’s had leg injuries before and he is never a quick healer. Even when he’s back, it generally has been at least a couple games before he gets into a rhythm,” Scouts Inc. Matt Williamson, said. After their Super Bowl victory last season, the Saints were praying for health across the board but the blow of Bush’s injury may be too much to handle.
