Found December 05, 2012 on NFL Draft Zone:
Coach Andy Reid announced at Monday’s presser that Nick Foles will remain the Eagles’ starting quarterback for the rest of the season.Michael Vick’s (concussion) health is no longer a consideration, though he supposedly still hasn’t been cleared to return. Either way, it’s the right call for an organization in transition. Foles was over matched in his first two starts before holding his own against Rob Ryan’s complex defense in Sunday’s loss to the Cowboys. He appeared far more aware of the rush, and displayed sharper decision-making. He looked like a player that deserved to be evaluated down the stretch of a lost season. I think Andy Reid has finally made the right decision.  Michael Vick needs a new change of scenery.  I think the marriage will Andy Reid is finally over in Philly.
