Will the Philadelphia Eagles Give Nick Foles a Shot at Quarterback Instead of Michael Vick?
After Sunday’s 30-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, the hot seat is beginning to heat up about whether or not Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid should replace Michael Vick with rookie Nick Foles at quarterback. After a 3-1 start, the Eagles have lost three-straight games to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Detroit Lions, and Falcons–trailing the New York Giants by two games in the NFC East.
Through seven games, Vick has already recorded 13 turnovers and he just can’t seem to get anything consistent going on offense. When things go wrong, the quarterback is usually one of the first players to receive the blame since he’s the leader of the offense and the argument can be made that Philadelphia’s record would be better if it wasn’t for some of Vick’s poor decisions.
Whether Vick, Reid, or the offensive line is to blame, one thing is clear–something in Philadelphia needs to change fast before it’s too late. The Eagles thought Juan Castillo was the main issue for their struggles, but it’s clear the problem goes way beyond that.
A change needs to be made and unfortunately–the only possible thing to do at this time is a switch at quarterback. Foles certainly showed potential during the preseason, but there’s no telling what to expect when he goes up against a first-team defense for an entire game.
If Foles does get the call for Week 9, at least he’ll be going against one of the worst defenses the league has to offer in the New Orleans Saints.
