Remember when everyone in Eagles country was clamoring for Nick Foles?
Not that Foles is to blame. That blame belongs to Nnamdi Asomugha, Andy Reid, Juan Castillo, the offensive line, Michael Vick, Howie Roseman, Jeff Lurie, Marty Mornhinweg, Bobby April, Howard Mudd, Demetress Bell, King Dunlap, Danny Watkins, Jason Babin, Nate Allen, Kurt Coleman, and of course, Donovan McNabb.
Foles didn't allow only 1 incompletion, 4 TDs, and 80+ yards rushing to RGIII. But Foles was facing a defense that has been torched all season, and had lost its previous 8 matchups to rookie QBs, including a game to Foles' backup Trent Edwards. Yet Foles managed to lead the offense to 6 points, complete only 45% of his passes for a sub 4.5 YPA, and added in 2 INTs.
So now that the optimism from Eagles fans surrounding Foles has been tempered, it's amazing that Vick suddenly has a chance to play next week, especially when last week, sources were "99 percent sure" Foles was going to start for the rest of the season while Vick recovered from his concussion.
Of course, Vick is still recovering, and I'd certainly hope that Andy Reid would not put his own personal interests ahead of the team and try to rush the recovery process of either Vick or LeSean McCoy, but it's funny how quickly rock bottom is only the tip of the iceberg.
