Michael Vick Injury: Why Nick Foles Should Remain Starting QB for Rest of 2013
When Chip Kelly arrived in Philadelphia, one of his first orders of business was to determine who to start at quarterback.
Initially, the former Oregon Ducks offensive guru tabbed dual-threat Michael Vick as his No. 1, but for the second week in a row, the former Pro Bowler will be inactive for the Eagles.
Regardless of whether Vick's able to return next week, Nick Foles should be installed as the team's starting quarterback for at least the rest of the season.
During his last two games, Foles has thrown for five touchdowns and rushed for another, leading the Eagles to wins over a pair of winless teams in the Buccaneers and Giants.
More importantly, he hasn't turned the ball over once, which is a problem Vick's battled consistently during his time in Philadelphia, as he's thrown two picks and fumbled three times this season alone.
While he hasn't faced an elite defense so far, Foles has thrown for more touchdowns than Vick despite playing considerably less, and at this point, Kelly has to be looking for consistency at the game's most important position.
The Eagles' ninth-ranked passing offense has enough weapons to do damage against anyone, and with Foles and company getting set to take on one of the league's worst passing defenses, expect the former Arizona standout to have big day.
