It looks like Alex Smith isn’t the only quarterback to lose his job after an injury, as Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid announced Monday that Nick Foles will be the starting quarterback over Michael Vick for the rest of the season. It’s been an ugly season for the Eagles, who find themselves at the bottom of the NFC East with a 3-9 record and have lost their last 8 games. It didn’t help that a struggling Vick had 9 interceptions and 10 fumbles on the season before being knocked out of their week 10 match-up against the Dallas Cowboys with a concussion. Foles has since taken over for Vick, and it looks like he will keep his job as the Eagles’ starting quarterback. In his last 3 starts, Foles has thrown for 574 yards with 1 touchdown and 2 interceptions. He had his best start last weekend in a loss to the Cowboys, but the situation in Philadelphia doesn’t look to be improving any time soon. The Eagles have been plagued with injuries this season as starting running back LeSean McCoy has also been out with a concussion, and it looks like it might be time for a makeover in Philly. Eagles fans have been very vocal in directing their frustrations at head coach Andy Reid, and it looks like Michael Vick could be out of a job.
