It's Time To Force Reid To Play Foles.

Posted November 11, 2012

Regardless of what the results of Mike Vick's concussion report is, the bottom line is this team is all but buried. Reid may not want to do it, but what's best for the team now is to find out if Nick Foles can truly be the quarterback of the future or is he at best a serviceable backup. I for one am not concerned about his health. He's a young kid and if he's not durable it's better to find out now rather than relying on him in the future. What's disappointing to me is the Eagles should have done this back in 2010, but instead the Eagles wanted to take a flyer on fools gold Mike Vick. Had we just stuck with Kolb, saw he wasn't the QB of the future and ultimately been in position to draft a Luck or RG3 we would be in a much better position today. The Mike Vick project has set the Eagles back multiple years and will be the reason why Andy Reid will lose his job. If Reid is unwilling to play Foles, then he should be fired now. Either way you look at it Andy Reid should be fired. The only question is does he want to do what's best for the Eagles or what's best for himself.
