Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio believes that Michael Vick may be next to lose his job, and it could happen sooner than we think. Citing no sources, but implying that he knows more than he can say, Florio thinks that Nick Foles is the object of Reid’s desires. Football wise, at least.
The handwriting on the wall has become an engraving in the form of a middle finger to the man who secured the job after Reid fell out of love with Donovan McNabb and then out of lust with Kevin Kolb. The new object of Reid’s affection is Foles, and it’s only a matter of time before Foles is flinging it.
Consider the evidence. With rampant reports and speculation regarding the team dumping Vick after the next Super Bowl to avoid guaranteeing $3 million of a $15.5 million salary in 2013, the Eagles have said nothing publicly — and they’ve done nothing privately to push a message of support for Vick. Then, Reid once again dropped a strong hint that Vick is in trouble with that “today, I am” response to the question of whether the head coach remains committed to the quarterback.
Love. Lust. Flinging. I'm turned on. Or just threw up a little.
I, too, have a feeling that Foles, whose name is also spelled K-E-V-I-N-K-O-L-B and pronounced not so athletic white guy with almost no track record is tapped as heir apparent, will see time this season. But really, is he the answer? No, he's not.
The ship is sinking, baby.
