Eagles QB Mike Vick was playing worse than Donovan McNabb was playing in Baltimore in 2008, when coach Andy Reid infamously benched him for Kevin Kolb. But backup QB Nick Foles is a rookie, Reid doesn't want or need a QB controversy, and there was that whole rust thing.
"I thought he was rusty," Reid said. "I'm stating the obvious, but I thought he had to work his way through it. He's our quarterback. The game's fast. It picks up off the preseason and he didn't have any preseason."
Vick didn't see much work in the preseason thanks to two different injuries that caused him to leave both games he appeared in. Also, Vick wasn't having a consistent camp this year either, so this is something to monitor. Turnovers were a big issue with Vick last season as well.
