Jersey Girl Sports fam, after yet another loss, it seems Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid is forced to do the inevitable: consider making a change at the quarterback position.
Right now the starter is the swift, sometimes capable Michael Vick, but even he has to acknowledge that a change may soon be coming. Michael Vick may be starting on the bench.
According to ESPN.com Vick revealed that the longtime Eagles coach will consider benching the four-time Pro Bowl quarterback in favor of rookie Nick Foles. “Obviously, he’s thinking about making a change at the quarterback position,” Vick said. “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.”
What a mature response to a very tough situation! Michael Vick has been struggling to prove himself since his return to the NFL and Andy Reid is under pressure to get his team to the playoffs, or, like Vick, he may be watching the game from his own personal bench—his sofa at his home.
Since Andy Reid is considering some changes, I think he also needs to look at the offensive line. They’re way too penetrable and leave Vick open, subject to hits—and, ultimately injury. Andy Reid knows this, especially after Sunday’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons. “That was an embarrassing performance,” Reid said. “I’m stating the obvious. We need to get better. I need to do a better job. This is fixable. We have the talent.”
So who knows what the starting lineup for the Eagles will look like on Sunday. Whoever starts, the Eagles need to win.
