You're not making a case for him being a "QB guru". Quite the opposite actually.
He went with the better player that was winning. People that aren't viewed as franchise QBs by the league at large will not end up being traded for a solid CB and 2nd round pick.
In the end, the Eagles would have been foolish to plug Kolb back in after Vick played like he did. It doesn't mean that he wasn't a franchise QB, though. They got what they could for him knowing that Vick was their guy going forward. That decision is not just on Reid, but GM Howie Roseman as well.
I know it seems ridiculous to you to have a guy labeled as a "QB guru" be able to plug in a quarterback and have him play well. That's because I don't understand your reasoning at all. I mean, what else would you expect of a QB guru, besides good play at the QB position?
