   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

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.

You call this a quarterback controversy? Eagles coach Ray Rhodes stoked the fire on Wednesday when he promised a two-week battle royal between Ty Detmer and Rodney Peete for the Birds' starting QB job. Rhodes, the ultimate competitor, said he envisioned a clawing, scratching fight. Let it all hang out and may the best passer win, the coach said. Too bad the QBs didn't catch the fever. Judging from their responses, the quarterbacks are taking the competition much too seriously, which has made things rather dull at Camp Rhodes.

INDIANAPOLIS - The quarterbacks took the field Saturday for testing and throwing at the NFL scouting combine, and both Oregon's Marcus Mariota and Florida State's Jameis Winston drew positive reviews for their performances. Many top quarterbacks were reluctant to throw at the combine in past seasons. Neither Mariota nor Winston avoided the uncontrolled setting without familiar receivers, capping off a strong weekend in which Winston reportedly interviewed well with teams and Mariota ran one of the best 40-yard dashes by a quarterback in recent history.

INDIANAPOLIS - If Marcus Mariota does not reunite with Chip Kelly in Philadelphia, he'll likely play in an offense that is different from what he experienced at Oregon. That team might even huddle. This is fine with Mariota, who sounds as if he does not want to be considered a system quarterback. "It will be an adjustment I'll be able to handle," Mariota said Thursday at the NFL scouting combine. "Learning as much as I can, learning how my drops time up with the route concepts and how my feet are going to help me go through my progressions: All this stuff is little things that I can continue to work on that will help my adjustment.

DALLAS - NFL scouts visited Eugene, Ore., this season and asked Oregon offensive coordinator Scott Frost what system he would run with Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Marcus Mariota in the pros. "Whatever the hell offense you want to run," Frost replied. "I think he can do anything. " Mariota has turned into college football's biggest star in the offense that Eagles coach Chip Kelly brought to Oregon. When Mariota was a freshman, Kelly predicted that he would win the Heisman.

The standard questions about the health of Eagles quarterback Nick Foles arose again Monday and the standard non-answers from coach Chip Kelly followed. Andy Reid used to love opening his news conferences with injury updates whereas Kelly loves to pretend he's never looked at or asked about an injury report. "No, I have no updates on Nick," Kelly said the day after backup quarterback Mark Sanchez and the Eagles offense fell limp in a 24-14 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Whenever an offense fails as fantastically as the Eagles did Sunday, it's natural that the quarterback's role is discussed.

Know any good young quarterbacks who can't run? The NFL could use a few. Deep into this 2014 season, two facts about the league's quarterbacks can't be ignored. First, and most problematic for a league whose signal-callers are its most prominent stars: The best of them are graying faster than a mid-January afternoon. Peyton Manning is 38. Tom Brady is 37. Drew Brees is 35. That's a lot of passing yards, record-book entries, and merchandising dollars headed for the exit. Not too far behind in total birthdays are Phillip Rivers (32)

LAST YEAR, P.J. Walker became Temple's starting quarterback as a true freshman in the sixth game. And his presence made an impression. He passed for 20 touchdowns, with eight interceptions. He threw for four scores twice, including the season-ending 41-21 win at Memphis. If nothing else, his performance provided hope for the future. Now, another season is nearing a close. The Owls are 5-5, which is a three-victory improvement. If you'd told most observers in August this is where they'd be, few would have complained.

THE SOUL re-signed quarterback Dan Raudabaugh to a 2-year contract, the Daily News has learned from a league source. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Raudabaugh, the team's offensive leader the last three seasons, represents the first key player to rejoin the club. He has an extensive relationship with head coach Clint Dolezel. Dolezel was re-signed in September, also for two seasons. The Soul went a disappointing 9-9 this past season and was eliminated by Cleveland in the first-round of the playoffs.

The Eagles worked out free-agent quarterbacks Terrelle Pryor and Thad Lewis last week, an NFL source said. Pryor, who spent his first three NFL seasons with the Raiders, was traded to the Seahawks in April and was released in August. The 6-foot-4, 233-pounder wants to continue to play quarterback, but he could have a better chance to land with a team as a wide receiver. The Eagles also worked out the 6-2, 220-pound Lewis, who has four seasons of NFL experience as a backup, in August.

After Friday practices at the University of Florida, some of the players who weren't quarterbacks would engage in a throwing contest to see who could most often hit the goalposts. Jaylen Watkins, having been a high school quarterback, partook and said he never lost. "I would beat everybody," Watkins, now a cornerback with the Eagles, said. "You can ask anyone that was there. " Eagles tight end Trey Burton, another Florida product and former high school quarterback, was there and he had a different version of events.
