Michael Lombardi of the NFL Network believes that Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is playing for his job this season.
“It’s all about how he plays,” Lombardi said Sunday on NFL GameDay Morning, per NFL.com.
“If he comes out and has the kind of year that he had the first year he became the starter, there’s no problem. … The way they structured this contract, it’s basically play as you go. If he plays well, they’ll continue to keep him. If he doesn’t play well, they’re going to start the Nick Foles era.
“Andy Reid has to win this year. Jeff Lurie has mandated everybody in the organization, they’ve got to win. … Ultimately, they’ll make that decision as the year goes on.”
I agree with Lombardi, Reid is certainly coaching for his job and Vick is playing for his as well. Both men need to win right now.
