Just in time for Christmas, Michael Vick may have got his wish as he is set to start next Sunday against the Giants (Credit: AP Photo) On Christmas Eve, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick got his wish. On Friday, Vick said he wants to be a starter again. “I’m not a backup. Just being honest, just being candid. I’m a full-fledged starter,” Vick said in an interview with Philadelphia Magazine’s Birds 24/7. “That’s what I’ve got in me, that’s what I provide, that’s what I offer. Whatever happens, wherever I end up, they’re going to get 110 percent. You’re going to get the same thing out of me that you got the last two, three years and that’s 110 percent effort and a guy that’s confident in his abilities to play and win. “I want to start. Yeah, I’m a starter. I’ll feel that way until I start to feel like I’m becoming a problem on the team.” Now it appears as though Vick will get his wish, just in time for Christmas and may start next week against the Giants. In yesterday’s loss to the Washington Redskins quarterback Nick Foles suffered a broken hand. Today, Andy Reid confirmed that Foles will be out for the team’s week 17 game against the Giants. Although Reid did not confirm that Vick will start next week, it is unlikely that the team would start Trent Edwards over Michael Vick. Vick will most likely be auditioning for a starting quarterback job next season next Sunday.
