Memo to Eagles: Remember One of the First Rules of Human Resources

Don't can someone unless you're absolutely certain you can replace him/her with someone better.

So, if you're looking to replace Donovan McNabb, who's led the team to a pretty good won-loss record during his time in the Soft Pretzel City, you had better be sure that Kevin Kolb and Michael Vick are going to do better. There's some chance that the former can be good, while the latter looked out of shape and didn't show much (albeit in limited time) for the Eagles last season.

Sure, McNabb isn't perfect and he can be streaky, but the won-loss record speaks volumes about his contribution to the team.

Andy Reid hasn't always made the best personnel decisions (he has made many good ones).

This might be his riskiest yet.
