Andy Reid changes mind; Vick will start for Eagles

Controversial quarterback Michael Vick will be the Philadelphia Eagles Number 1 signal-caller, according to head coach Andy Reid on Tuesday. The change-of-direction decision happened one day after Reid announced that Kevin Kolb would be regaining his job as Number 1 QB.

Vick is without a doubt, the best scrambling quarterback in NFL history, but he has demonstrated that he no longer has the run-first mentality like Kolb has.

Vick threw for 175 yards and one touchdown and ran for 103 yards in a 27-20 season-opening loss to Green Bay. He had 284 yards passing and two TD’s in a 35-32 win at Detroit on Sunday.

Kolb has missed the last six quarters because of a concussion, and Vick responded well in his place. Kolb has been cleared to play by the medical staff.

The start against the Lions was Vick’s first in nearly four years. He has completed 63.8 percent of his passes and has posted consecutive games with a passer rating above 100 for only the second time in his career.

RB Larry Johnson cut by Washington Redskins

Running back Larry Johnson finished 2009 with a positive stint with the Cincinnati Bengals after being released by the Kansas City Chiefs. He left Cincinnati only because he wanted to be a starter elsewhere and not a backup.

He signed with the Washington Redskins, the team he rooted for while growing up in Maryland. The 30-year-old signed a three-year, incentive-laden contract with the team in March with hopes of becoming a starter again.

That dream was cut short on Tuesday, as the Redskins released Johnson after he gained just 2 yards on five carries in two games.

Johnson was one of three veteran running backs that Washington had on its roster going into training camp. Willie Parker was cut at the end of preseason camp. Clinton Portis is still unchallenged as the Number 1 running back.

Some members of the Washington media had been speculating for two days that this move would happen, after Johnson lost 10 yards trying to reverse field on a first-down run in the fourth quarter. That was a crucial play that forced the Redskins into passing the football when they were trying to run out the clock with a 10-point lead. Washington eventually lost to the Houston Texans in overtime, 30-27.

NFL MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL: 49ers hang with Saints, but can’t pull upset; lose 25-22

New Orleans place kicker Garrett Hartley launched a 37-yard field goal that barely clearly the crossbar as time ran out giving the Saints a 25-22 victory over the upset-minded San Francisco 49ers in San Francisco.

The winning field goal try was possible by a pass from Drew Brees to Marques Colston covering 30 yards.

The 49ers Frank Gore rushed for 112 yards on 20 carries.

It was Gore who scored on a 7-yard touchdown with 1:19 left in regulation and Vernon Davis made a close-call catch at the goal-line for the tying two-point conversion. The play was initially called no good by the referees, but San Francisco challenged the ruling and video-tape replays showed the 49ers were right and the two-point conversion was good.

No problem for the 2-0 Saints, who got the ball back and started to drive from their 30-yard line with 1:14 left. Brees hit Colston with a pass that put the Saints on the San Francisco 18 with 18 seconds left.

Drew Brees completed 28 of 38 passes for 254 yards and two touchdowns.

Browns drop to 0-2 as Chiefs rally to win game, 16-14

The game-by-game watch has started again for Cleveland coach Eric Mangini. The Browns let another winnable game get away.

The Browns dropped to 0-2 for the third straight season and fourth time in five years Sunday, losing to a much-improved Kansas City Chiefs team, 16-14.¬† That’s the same team that the Browns beat¬† last December 41-34.

The upcoming weeks will tell if Mangini will be able to survive under the Mike Holmgren regime. The Browns will be facing Baltimore, Cincinnati, Atlanta, Pittsburgh and New Orleans.

Brandon Flowers returned an interception for a touchdown, Ryan Succop kicked three field goals and Thomas Jones ran for a late first down on a fourth-down gamble by coach Todd Haley as the Chiefs improved their record to 2-0 for the first time since 2005.

Highlights for the Browns were Josh Cribbs’ 65-yard touchdown reception from QB Seneca Wallace.

Wallace started in place of Jake Delhomme, who injured his right ankle at Tampa Bay last weekend. Wallace was 16 of 31 passing for 229 yards, but he had the pass interception that was run back by Brandon Flowers for a touchdown.

WR Chad Ochocinco (NFL)

The 32-year-old Ochocinco, formerly Chad Johnson, is the Bengals’ all-time franchise leader in receptions, receiving yards and is tied with Carl Pickens with 63 career touchdown receptions.

During the game, reliable number 85 caught four passes for 44 yards. He is off to a good start in 2010, with 16 catches in two games.
