03:34 PM ET 10.29 | The Philadelphia Eagles are likely to replace quarterback Michael Vick with backup Nick Foles for the team's Week 9 matchup against the New Orleans Saints, according to multiple reports. No decision has been made as of Monday morning. Howard Eskin of FOX 29 in Philadelphia reported that head coach Andy Reid met with his coaches following Sunday's loss against the Atlanta Falcons to discuss the quarterback situation. Citing a source close to the team, Eskin was informed that Vick was going to be replaced as the starter. Reid was expected to meet with his staff again on Monday, but the team was forced to close their facility due to Hurricane Sandy. According to Eskin, Vick made two ill-advised audible calls against the Falcons, which is something that has consistently occurred throughout the season. Reid is leaning toward the change because of these kinds of issues and Vick's inability to improve.

Andy Reid's weekly desperation move Take Two.

I'm not going to claim that Vick is the most cerebral of quarterbacks - his intangibles are his biggest weakness - but don't expect those ill-advised audibles to disappear when you throw a rookie QB on the field.

Hurricane Sandy is delaying the decision.

Here's my decision on Vick. He's a murderer. He's a thug. He's a felon. He's a sociopath. He's a pathological liar. And he's a s******a.

Bench Vick? After giving him all that money? I think the whole team needs to improve their play, not just Vick
