Quote:
Foles suffered a hairline fracture that was only apparent after an MRI. He played through the injury for a chunk of Sunday's loss, but with the Eagles only playing for pride this week, there's no reason to push their rookie signal caller. Foles is expected to need only three weeks to recover. Coach Andy Reid has announced Michael Vick who was a healthy scratch for Week 16 will start in his absence. Thrown into the fire as a third-round rookie, Foles has had his share of struggles this season, but performed better than should have been reasonably expected. He'll finish with a 6:5 TD:INT ratio over 265 passes, and two 300-yard performances in his final three starts. Although his 60.8 completion percentage and 79.1 QB rating are hardly stellar, they're still solid for a rookie. Unless Philadelphia hires read-option maven Chip Kelly, the smart money is on Foles being the Eagles quarterback in 2013.


Reid also announced that Vick will start against the Giants next week. Wouldn't surprise me at all to see Vick tear up Perry Fewell's sorry excuse for a defense since he's auditioning for 2013.

That's sad - I was just saying the other day I was liking Foles' development as a QB since coming in.

Maybe they can call up Uncle Rico to start.

Am I missing something? I thought the article said Vick is going to start, not Edwards.

Yeah but what are the odds Vick actually lasts the whole game?

He will be hurt by the 2nd to 3rd series of the end of the 1st QB

He's done enough to be the starter next year.

Agreed. I don't like any of the QBs in this draft well enough to make an effort to get one of them. It might be a good idea to sign a veteran backup to push/insure Foles, but that's about it. Picks and FA money are better spent elsewhere.

With the way our pass rush has been, he'd have to trip and land funny to get injured. Bryon Leftwich style.

Sucks for Nick to end the season on this note, but I don't care at this point, just want to get '13 over with.
