Vick Supports Benching Himself For Nick Foles


The strange, controversial careers of Eagles head coach Andy Reid and QB Michael Vick have hit another valley.

The $100 million QB of the Eagles couldn’t keep up with the Falcons’ score festival, as Matty Ice and company scored more points (30) on the Eagles defense in Todd Bowles’s debut as DC than any non-Brady/Belichick offense did vs. Juan Castillo in his final 14 games as defensive coordinator.

Reid dropped to 13-1 after the bye, which likely won’t be an ominous sign if they win a postseason game or two.

Afterwards, Vick said that Reid “obviously” was thinking about demoting him and, if that were to happen, he would support his coach. 

“You know, obviously, I think there’s a lot of things that I can do better,” Vick said. “I’m trying to do everything I can to put the ball in the end zone … I don’t know if playing like a franchise quarterback means three or four touchdowns week-in and week-out and doing everything right. But I know I’ve been there before and despite it all, I still feel like I do a lot of positive things out there, and that’s all I can ask.”

The Eagles will play the Saints at New Orleans on Monday Night Football next week.

Hit “Like” if you think Michael Vick should be given at least one more start.
