Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is playing for his starting job, according to NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi.
Last week the Eagles played the Cleveland Browns as Vick passed for 317 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions. His QB rating was 51.0.
This week Vick threw for 371 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions with a 94.7 passing rating as the Eagles beat the Baltimore Ravens 24-23.
Vick will have to perform well all season long or we may see Nick Foles take over as the starter.
“It’s all about how he plays,” Lombardi said Sunday on “NFL GameDay Morning.”
“If he comes out and has the kind of year that he had the first year he became the starter, there’s no problem. … The way they structured this contract, it’s basically play as you go. IF he plays well, they’ll continue to keep him. If he doesn’t play well, they’re going to start the Nick Foles era.
Andy Reid has to win this year. Jeff Lurie has mandated everybody in the organization, they’ve got to win. … Ultimately they’ll make that decision as the year goes on.”
