Michael Vick Embraces The Role As Backup QB For Eagles

USATSI_7999215_154224518_lowresThe season is officially over for the Philadelphia Eagles in terms of contending for a playoff spot in the NFC. Plans for the future of the franchise have begun with potentially drastic changes on the horizon with head coach Andy Reid more than likely to be let go at season’s end.

Along with Reid possibly looking for another job in the off-season, Michael Vick’s role as a starter with the Eagles and perhaps in the NFL altogether is in jeopardy. Vick has been named the backup quarterback for the rest of the season in favor of rookie Nick Foles.

Even though Vick has been cleared to play in the final two games, the team is sticking with Foles for the rest of the way and the veteran quarterback appears to be embracing the role via Les Bowen of Philly.com:

“That’s just the way things are right now,” he said, when asked about not being the starter, perhaps ever again here. “I have to roll with the punches and deal with it, make the most of it, continue to work hard, try to get better, continue to help Nick out, continue to help (backup Trent Edwards), continue to help this football team, do my job as a leader … regardless if I’m the starter or the third-string quarterback.”

The Eagles are coming off a disappointing loss to the Cincinnati Bengals last Thursday. Philadelphia was unable to get much of anything going against the Bengals with Foles only completing 16 of 33 passes for 182 yards, one touchdown, one interception and a lost fumble.

Heading into Week 16 against the Washington Redskins, the Eagles will continue to be playing for pride and as a potentially spoiler to the Redskins’ hopes of clinching a playoff and or NFC East division title. It remains uncertain at this point in time whether or not Kirk Cousins will get a second consecutive start in favor of the injured Robert Griffin III, but it’s say the say Cousins will likely be under center for the battle of rookie quarterbacks with Foles on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field.
