07:57 AM ET 09.26 | Is it time for a turnover-prone quarterback to take a seat while rookie Nick Foles runs the offense? Not quite yet. But perhaps very, very soon. If I'm Andy Reid, I'd still give Vick most of the first-team reps in practice this week. But I'd also give a handful to Foles to let both he and Vick know that Vick will be on a short leash Sunday night when the 2-1 Eagles face the 2-1 Giants at the Linc. And if Vick goes out there and turns the ball over a couple more times in the first half and continues to hold on to the ball and continues with the poor decision-making he's displayed in the first three games, I'd give him the hook and bring in the 6-6, 243-pound righthander from the bullpen.

Vick is due to get hurt soon, Foles will get his chance.

He'll be running around all game this week. If he lasts the entire game that is.

First off, your a hack sports reporter, not an NFL coach. Second, until the O-LINE decides to join the game why get Foles killed, continue to do what you do best Andy, chew up QBs because you didn;t draft any O-LINE help.

You know the funny thing is...........Vick, Cutler, and now RGIII are always on their **** and somehow its not their offensive lines fault. Perculiar, very perculiar I'd say!

If the Eagles don't do well this year, they might make a change, Michael is not getting any younger!

Well the Da Bears with the exception of 06 have been perrenial effortless ones over the past 20 or so years, so I would put much credence in anything they say or their management for that matter.

Then it'll be Foles's turn to run around. The O line is the issue as well. So you put in a rookie QB and throw the season away... Stupid

Vick can be released at the end of the year and it will only cost the Eagles $3 million. $36 million of that $100 million contract was guaranteed. He will have received $33 million of that in these first two years of it. And that is where this is all heading unless he comes up big. Real big.

And if he doesn't come up "big"... he will not be the only one released at the end of the year.

Let the rebuilding begin...

All in good time.....Vick is playing his way out of a job......

Andy Reid is on the phone asking the Cardinals what it would take to get John Skelton...
