It never stops.
Yahoo!’s Jason Cole, citing two sources, writes that Andy Reid may “rest” Michael Vick for the remainder of the season, regardless of health, so he can groom Nick Foles and, in turn, save his job:
Two sources said Monday morning that it's a pretty strong bet that, barring an odd change in circumstances, Vick will be "rested" for the remainder of the season by Reid and the coaching staff. In place of Vick, rookie Nick Foles will start, and the sources believe Reid will use the development of Foles as a springboard to keep his job as the Eagles' coach.
"I'm 99 percent sure that's exactly what you're going to see happen," a source said Monday morning. "Andy is going to go to [owner] Jeff [Lurie] and [general manager] Howie [Roseman] and say, 'Let's go with Foles and make the transition to the next era.' "
"You can run all the timing routes and throws to spots that you want, but it helps when the quarterback can see it for himself," the Eagles source said. "We have always had the issue with [Vick] about seeing the play and trusting it. It's just something you have to deal with as a player and as a coaching staff. With Foles, maybe that gets easier."
Besides being the right coaching decision, that would be a delightfully nefarious move by Reid. But early evidence doesn’t contrast with the report: Today, Reid called Vick’s concussion significant, a statement which paves the way for Foles to start on Sunday. And then there’s the whole thing with firing Juan Castillo, a seemingly desperate attempt by Reid to save his own ass. So, saying Reid's above that sort of thing might no longer apply.
