   Which quarterback would you rather have on your team this weekend?    Former Eagle Kevin Kolb got off to a good start with his new team, the Arizona Cardinals, and Eagles starter Michael Vick earned a victory. Only former Eagle Donovan McNabb struggled with his new team, the Minnesota Vikings.    Here is a look at how Kolb, Vick and McNabb compare after the first week of the season: Rk Player    Comp-Att Pct Yds Avg TD Int Lng 20+ Sck Rate 3 Kevin Kolb         18-27 66.7 309 11.4 2 0 70T 6 2 130.0 17 Michael Vick      14-32 43.8 187 5.8 2 0 41 4 3 83.7 28 Donovan McNabb     7-15 46.7 39 2.6 1 1 12 0 2 47.9

Every generation, it seems, laments what is to become of the one that follows, and sometimes it does so with justification. For proof, we offer the state of NFL quarterbacks. The best ones, with a few exceptions, are all in their 30s. There is, in fact, an epidemic of bad among the 20-somethings, with the Eagles' Sam Bradford, 27, at the very bottom, according to ESPN's system for ranking signal-callers. Instead of simply calculating passing numbers, which is how a standard rating is figured, ESPN's quarterback ratings take a more detailed look at game situations.

September 8, 1991 | By Glen Macnow, Inquirer Staff Writer
The season is just under way and the quarterbacks-on-crutches parade has already begun. Last week's victims were the Eagles' Randall Cunningham and Seattle's David Krieg. Pittsburgh's Bubby Brister sustained a concussion, but will return today. Four teams (including San Francisco and Phoenix, whose quarterbacks were injured before the season started) are already down to their second-string passers. With Pat Ryan's career resuscitated, can Guido Merkens be far behind? The trend is nothing new. Last year, six contending teams went into the playoff stretch without their regular quarterback.

Old quarterbacks, young quarterbacks, and Philadelphia-area quarterbacks were the story in Week 3 of the NFL season. Love the locals. Penn Charter graduate Matt Ryan threw a 70-yard touchdown pass for the Atlanta Falcons in their win over Kansas City. Audubon High's Joe Flacco passed for just 129 yards but led a Baltimore offense that held the ball for nearly 38 minutes in the Ravens' win over Cleveland. Good, and not so good. Rookie Steve Slaton, the former Conwell-Egan High star, experienced a tale of two halves for Houston.

It's not exactly 1983, when six quarterbacks were taken in the first round. But the 1995 draft is becoming the year of the quarterback in its own way. Four more quarterbacks - Rob Johnson, of Southern Cal; Chad May, of Kansas State; Dave Barr, of California; and Steve Stenstrom, of Stanford - were taken in the fourth round as the draft resumed yesterday. Alabama's Jay Barker in the fifth. Jerry Colquitt, of Tennessee, and Craig Whelihan, of Pacific, went in the sixth. And John Walsh, of Brigham Young, was taken in the seventh and final round, one that ended with Carolina taking Michael Reed, a defensive back from Boston College.

There was a time not long ago in Eastern college football when there was no balance of power to shift. Penn State, with an occasional scare from Pitt, was The Beast of the East for so long that the Eastern football landscape looked like something from one of those old Japanese monster films, with a Nittany Lion playing the part of Godzilla. Clearly, that is no longer the case. And a major reason is that some wise coaches have decided that a sound way to counteract State's traditionally repressive defense is to add another dimension to their offense.

August 26, 2010 | By ED BARKOWITZ Fantasy football: Scouting the quarterbacks By ED BARKOWITZ, fantasyfootball@phillynews.com
Sam Bradford, Rams: No thanks. Ditto for the other rookie quarterbacks out there. Tom Brady, Patriots: Says he wants to play another 10 years. Even if she is a supermodel, married life will do that to you. Drew Brees, Saints: That Week 1 opener against Brett Favre and the Vikings should get the fantasy season off to a flying start. First one to 40 wins. Jason Campbell, Raiders: Campbell is an upgrade at quarterback over JaMarcus Russell. But, then again, Naomi Campbell would be an improvement for the Raiders.

Every year, we're surprised by a handful of players who emerge from obscurity to become instant fantasy heroes. We're equally shocked when "can't miss" studs turn into duds overnight. (I'm looking at you, Chris Johnson.) But I can't remember a time when an entire position seems to have been flipped upside down. Sure, we're only three weeks into the 2012 season, but what in the name of Johnny Unitas is going on with the quarterbacks? Tom Brady has thrown half as many touchdown passes as Ryan Fitzpatrick.

The Eagles hired former Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator John DeFilippo as quarterbacks coach Thursday. He joins offensive coordinator Frank Reich to give the Eagles two coaches on the offensive staff who called plays in the NFL last season. DeFilippo, 37, graduated from Radnor High School when his father, Gene, was the athletic director at Villanova. He reportedly drew interest from the San Francisco 49ers for their head coaching vacancy and the Los Angeles Rams to be offensive coordinator.

THE RACE for NFL MVP is heavy with quarterbacks. Ditto for fantasy. Cam Newtown has led the Panthers to a 14-1 record and been a monster in fantasy, with 33 touchdown passes and eight more on the ground. Tom Brady also has been a horse, with 36 TD passes despite a sagging running game and plenty of injuries at wide receiver. He needs 364 yards Sunday at Miami for 5,000 for the season. Not impossible. He hooked the Dolphins for 356 in Week 8. Brady was especially valuable in fantasy leagues that drafted before Sept.

As a rookie in St. Louis in 2010, Sam Bradford entered the final two weeks of the season with near identical circumstances to those he now encounters with the Eagles. The Rams were 6-8 and needed to win their final two games to clinch a division title. Bradford led them to to a Week 16 win over San Francisco – Dec. 26, no less – to set up a winner-take-all Week 17 game against Seattle. The Rams lost that season finale. Bradford played one of the worst games of his career. He never played in a late-season, elimination-type game again.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Phillip Ely had to be patient for much of his career, but now it appears to have paid off for the Toledo quarterback. Ely will provide a major test for the Temple defense when the teams meet in the Boca Raton Bowl. This season the 6-foot-1, 202-pound native of Tampa, Fla., has completed 54.9 percent of his passes and thrown for 2,680 yards, 21 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions in his first full season as a college starter. With a quick release, he has been sacked just four times in 375 passing attempts this season.

Tyrod Taylor would not be the best quarterback to run Chip Kelly's vision of a zone-read offense. He was, however, the best alternative available during an offseason in which the Eagles' coach/general manager paid a high price to bring in Sam Bradford from the St. Louis Rams. This, of course, is hindsight and we know how clear our vision can be with that as an aide. But listen to Kelly talk about Taylor and you wonder if there's just a tinge of regret for not signing a guy who was available as a free agent at the low cost of $3.35 million over three seasons.

Much of Keenan Reynolds' success during his career at Navy has come from his ability to fake a would-be tackler in one direction and cut the other way, which is kind of like what he did last week with reporters when the subject turned to the Heisman Trophy. "Sure, I'm definitely grateful to be in the conversation," the senior quarterback said during last week's Army-Navy luncheon at Lincoln Financial Field. "I think every kid has that dream of hoisting the trophy. But that's not why you play the game.

There was sadness within him, nothing more or less. When he learned that Evan Murray, a 17-year-old quarterback at Warren Hills Regional High School in Washington, N.J., had died from football last Friday night, Miles Austin did not tie the tragedy to any aspect of his own life, his own experiences in the sport. He could have. The connections were apparent. During a game against Summit High School, Murray rose from the ground after a tackle, his teammates steadying him as he wobbled, and walked off the field before collapsing on the sideline.

The Eagles made a change at No. 3 quarterback, but it did not involve Tim Tebow. They signed quarterback Thad Lewis and released Stephen Morris on Monday, giving them a new third-string quarterback behind Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez. Lewis, 27, is 6-foot-2 and 200 pounds and went to Duke. He started five games for the Buffalo Bills in 2013 and one for the Cleveland Browns in 2012. Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur was his head coach with the Browns, and was also Shurmur's offensive coordinator in St. Louis in 2010.
