Rant My Life: Have We Seen the Last of Michael Vick With the Philadelphia Eagles?
For the first time in the Andy Reid era, the Philadelphia Eagles are in the middle of a five-game losing skid heading into Week 11–with their latest disappointing loss coming last Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. With Michael Vick suffering a severe concussion, talk is beginning to heat up about the Eagles “resting” their quarterback for the remainder of the season and letting rookie Nick Foles run the offense over the final seven games.
If this does end up happening–we may have seen the last of Vick in an Eagles uniform.
There’s been plenty of questions surrounding whether or not Philadelphia would part ways with Vick following the 2012 season considering he would have received the $40 million that was guaranteed from his $100 million deal that he signed prior to the 2011 season. Vick was effective at first when he took over the starting role in 2010, but even towards the end of that season–opposing teams seemed to have figured out his style of play and made life difficult for him at quarterback.
The fact that Philadelphia is on pace to miss the playoffs for the second-straight season with one of the most talented offenses in football on paper is the perfect example of how much Vick has struggled over the last two seasons. It was worth the risk at first, but with the way things have gone this season–it wouldn’t be a surprise if Philadelphia put an end to the Vick era at the end of the season and see if Foles is the answer for the future.
