08:02 AM ET 12.20 | Andy Reid made it official on Wednesday. [Michael Vick] is the Eagles' third quarterback on Sunday, behind Nick Foles and Trent Edwards. Reid reserved the right to change his mind on whether Vick is second or third as the week progresses, but Vick doesn't seem to be expecting any upgrade. "Right now, I just want to get him back in the swing and going here, and make sure he's good," Reid said. Vick said he is simulating Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III for the scout team -- a step up for the defense from when the teams played last month and wideout Marvin McNutt performed that task. Redskins coach Mike Shanahan told a conference call with Philadelphia reporters that Griffin III, sidelined last week with a knee injury, practiced fully Wednesday.

The logic in me wants to say this is a diversion and Vick is starting sunday.... But the realist in me says the iggles are still stupid, and this is the dumbest football move they could make at this point.

As I understand the rules, you have to properly state your started and can not change unless there is a injury.

I just don't get why Andy Reid is throwing Vick under the bus after betting the franchise on him. Maybe a GM decision.... Stupid either way.

I still say Vick and come to the GIANTS as Eli's backup!

Giants already have this year's version of Vick in Ryan Perriloux, complete with character issues and personal baggage.

Just like the Jets only without as much drama.

Maybe... maybe not. From what I've read, Rex Ryan really likes Vick, but Ryan may not be around next season. Odds are the the J-E-T-S will get a new GM, and whomever that is might have some ideas of his own. Too soon to tell.

I've never been so happy to be out of town for a football Sunday... The Eagles are an outright embarassment to themselves and the city... Some teams hit roock bottom, not the Eagles... They get to rock bottom and keep going... UGH!!!
