NFL Trade Rumors:
Eagles head coach Andy Reid announced that rookie QB Nick Foles will remain the team’s starting quarterback for the remainder of the 2012 season, per Reuben Frank.
Last week, reports came out that Michael Vick‘s concussion issues were actually getting worse, so this could be the right decision for both the team and Vick’s long-term health.
Foles put together the best performance of his brief NFL career last night and showed plenty of improvement against the Cowboys defense. It makes sense that they would use their remaining games to evaluate him for next season.
This is just another indication that Vick is no longer part of the team’s long-term plans and will likely be released in the coming months.

Pretty much everyone knows that Andy Reid will not be the head coach in Philadelphia after this season.
If the team’s owner demanding more than a .500 year before the season began wasn’t enough, the Eagles going 3-9 so far and showing new depths of futility on the fumble and injury fronts surely is. The question now is when Reid will be let go.
