12:50 PM ET 12.03 | Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback Nick Foles has been named the team's starting quarterback for the remainder of the season, according to an announcement made by head coach Andy Reid on Monday afternoon. Foles has acted as the team's starting quarterback since Michael Vick sustained a concussion in the team's Week 10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. In the subsequent weeks, Vick has failed to pass the league-mandated protocol to be cleared to play. With Philadelphia currently in the midst of an 8-game losing streak, the team has no chance of qualifying for the playoffs.

But Andy will sell him to someone for a pick

Good, If the Cowboys achieve nothing else this season at least they put Convick away. Hopefully for good this time. If they won't let us hold his head under water at least they can let us run him out of the sport.

I find it absolutely amazing that the QB situations for either the Eagles or Jets warrants any coverage whatsoever by any national media.

Sure, why not Foles.
