After today’s loss to the Falcons, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick hinted that head coach Andy Reid might bench him in favor of rookie Nick Foles.
“Obviously, he’s thinking about making a change at the quarterback position,” Vick said of Andy Reid, per the Philadelphia Inquirer.. “The thing I do know, and I’ll go watch the film and I’ll evaluate myself, is that I’m giving us every opportunity to win. I’m trying my hardest. Something don’t go right when I want them to. Some things do. If that’s a decision that coach wants to make, then I support it.”
According to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Reid has never told Vick he’s thinking about making a quarterback change.
Benching Vick wouldn’t help the Eagles win. Rookie Nick Foles would be a sitting duck behind their offensive line.
