Report: Andy Reid wanted to bench Vick last season

According to mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, Eagles head coach Andy Reid wanted to bench Michael Vick last season, but Vince Young didn’t play well enough while Vick was injured.

“A source with knowledge of the dynamics in Philly over the past two seasons believes firmly that Reid has been considering benching Vick since the middle of last season, when the Eagles slumped to a 3-6 start.  Reid was hoping, we’re told, that former backup Vince Young would play well enough during a three-game injury absence from Vick to justify doing to Vick what Reid did to Kevin Kolb in 2010,” wrote Florio.
