Rant My Life: Philadelphia Eagles Decide to Stick With Michael Vick at QB
After losing three-straight games, the starting quarterback position has been quite the popular topic in the City of Brotherly Love as it appeared rookie Nick Foles was going to replace Michael Vick as the starter for the Philadelphia Eagles heading into their Week 9 matchup against the New Orleans Saints. However, Reid put an end to all rumors on Wednesday–making it clear that Vick’s job was safe for at least one more week as he’ll start against the Saints on Monday night.
The Eagles became the first team in NFL history this season to win their first three games by two points or less, but it’s been tough for them to find a win since then as they’ve lost three in a row to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Detroit Lions, and Atlanta Falcons. Whether it’s Vick, Andy Reid, or the offensive line to blame, it’s clear some sort of change needs to be made in Philadelphia before it’s too late and depending on what happens Monday–it wouldn’t be a surprise if the Eagles gave Foles a shot.
Vick has the potential to put up big numbers against the Saints considering they rank last overall when it comes to defense–which means there’s no excuse for him to struggle this time around. If Vick can’t even put up big numbers against a team that has given up at least 400 yards of offense in each of their last seven games, then there may not be much hope after all for him in the future as quarterback for the Eagles.
