Found November 12, 2012 on Eagles Addict:
Photo: Yong Kim, Philly.com The 2012 season for the Philadelphia Eagles is over.  Michael Vick is out with a concussion and Andy Reid is a lame-duck coach.  It’s time to see what the young guy can do. After a game against the hated Cowboys in which the Eagles found a new way to lose, it effectively ended any slim hope that they could turn this season around.  Maybe they’re technically not “mathematically” eliminated from playoff contention yet, but we all know this is a lost season. Reid stated after the game yesterday that Vick would still be the starter if healthy.  And if that turns out to be the case, the only reason that would make any sense at all is because Reid wouldn’t want to showcase Foles and make it easier for the decision-making of the next head coach. He could hide behind the “we’re not eliminated yet” or “we just need to win a football game” mantras and use that to justify his sticking with Vick, but that’s just wasting time.  There is absolutely no reason whatsoeve
