Isn’t Andy Reid A Quarterback Guru?

Posted June 30, 2013

The list of names attributed to Andy Reid as him either developing or rejuvenating is expansive. Many people on this site and abroad have credited Andy Reid for being great at developing quarterbacks. Now after the Chiefs hired Andy Reid, it became known that he made a phone call to them about the availability of one of their quarterbacks. That quarterback was Nick Foles. This is interesting because Andy knew that the only reason Mike Vick was back with the Eagles was due to the fact he chose to accept their offer of less money. Otherwise he would have been shown the door just like Nnamdi was. So If Andy Reid the quarterback guru knew that Mike Vick the guy his son was close with, the guy who he himself helped rejuvenate could have been had for a draft pick, then why did he call the Eagles about the availability of Nick Foles? Andy eventually settled for paying a hefty price of a 2nd round pick for Alex Smith. Does anyone realistically think Mike Vick would have cost that much? Nevertheless Reid chose NOT TO MAKE AN OFFER FOR HIM. So what does this mean? It would seem to me that the quarterback guru doesn’t believe that Mike Vick has anything left in the tank, and he does believe in the future of Nick Foles. One thing over the years Andy Reid has proven to know about even more than his penchant for knowing a quality NFL quarterback.  It’s his ability to know when to give up on a player before it’s too late. The Guru has made it clear. Mike Vick’s time is nearly up.
