04:51 PM ET 10.13 | Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick left last week's game against the New York Giants with a hamstring injury. There was some hope that Vick would be ready for today's game, but he suited up only as the team's emergency quarterback. In recent comments to the media, Vick said that he has a long road back to recovery, so we should expect to see plenty of Nick Foles and potentially even see him win the starting job.

You had a decent career, but it's closing time Because it's the Foles era now.

Foles looks quite capable of running Chip Kelly's read option offense.

May as well make the change now. I don't think there is much hope of a future with Vick. Still, chan't blame Chip for wondering who gives the best chance to win now.

Vick is not a has been...he's really a never was, and a coulda been.Mostly, he's been overrated his whole career.

Crazy talk. Vick was at one point the NFL's most exciting, emulated, highly paid, popular, game-changing, etc player. And he still shows flashes of it from time to time.

Vick's problem has always been his reckless style of play. Dude gets hurt all the time because he gets popped too much, and in awkward ways. But you can't question his physical ability or his commitment to the games and/or his teammates.

Nor can you question Vick's cultural status as an icon, or his impact on generations of young players. A guy that famous (for lack of a better term) can't just be dismissed as a "never was".

Pay them no mind. None of them have obviously watched a game this season.

Vick has taken too many hits. Every hit makes you wonder if he's going to get up. I doubt they will cut him, but they will not re-sign him.

Nick Foles won the starting job at the end of last year.

He's going to win the starting job again this year.

He's just plain better than Vick.

I don't give a flying **** if you care or not.

You were just wrong about Vick and I wanted to correct you.
