Rookie Nick Foles will start at quarterback the rest of the season, even if Michael Vick is healthy enough to play, Eagles head coach Andy Reid said Monday afternoon.

more evidence that Reid could be back.   He is either being a good soldier for Lurie, or, he expects to be back next year.

A few things stand out about this:

1. Vick is pretty much gone. If he does pass the concussion tests, he will be backup.

2. Reid may get lucky enough to stay IF a couple things change. One was the firing of Washburn. Next would be firing of Marty. A healthy OL next year might do wonders.

3. OL seemed to play better this week. Foles was only sacked once right? There was some pressure but not too much. 

4. Foles looked poised on many plays. He did throw the ball away a couple times instead of making throws he couldn't. Not saying he will be Luck or RGIII, but maybe Dalton.

Foles is growing on me every week...not the scrambler we have become used to but he looks to have a much greater upside as a passer than anyone we have had in the modern era.

Heres hoping we lose the next four games by a FG.

Call me naive, but I think Reid is just being the good soldier here, and trying to do right by the next adminstration.  Lurie has been incredibly loyal to Reid, and I be shocked if the feeling isn't mutual.  It'd be just unimaginable to see Reid return, especially after the "fools gold" press conference.

Eagles/Indiana/Mets/Villanova: it's a long story

Reid will eventually want another job, so it's in his best interest to what's best for the organization and giving the rookie as many snaps as possible the rest of the way.  Notice how he's also been showing better run/pass balance the last two weeks.

The story this morning about it being Howie's idea to bring in Washburn is strange.  I doubt Howie knew enough about football two years ago to even know who Washburn was.  I'm thinking Andy's agent put that out there to try to get some of the stink of this season off Andy.

That wouldn't surprise me one bit.
