The Eagles Should Not Let Foles Go For Anything Less Than A 2nd.

Posted February 21, 2013
Birdflipper brought up the fact about Nick Foles being sacked 20 times in 6 starts. Okay so why was that? It was because his line consisted of 4 castoff players, two of them probably shouldn't be in the NFL. He also didn't have McCoy, Celek, and Jackson for extended periods of time. Okay now lets look at Mike. Mike also lost several key lineman during the season; however all of those players were lost while he was under center. Other than Peters of course. That means he had better overall protection than Foles did. Nick Foles sack percentage was actually lower than Vick's! So with a better line, better skilled players, and a coach who was actually still trying to win football games, Mike Vick had a lower passer rating than Nick Foles and sacked at a higher rate than Nick Foles. So the LOGICAL thing for me to do is to wonder what can Foles do with a healthy line, a coach gameplanning for him, a healthy Set of skilled players, a preseason, and camp with him at the number one spot. That's not me hating on or hating Mike Mike. That's just the truth. If Mike Vick wants to search his inner self then he should go be a monk. Meanwhile he needs to produce on the field in order for his team to win games. Some food for thought. Mike Vick for his career averages LESS THAN 6 wins a season. If Vick does end up starting I suggest you all not expect too much from him other than a heavy dose of what he's already given us.
