The Philadelphia Eagles have ruled Mike Vick out of Sunday’s game against the Redskins according to multiple reports. Though this is not surprising due to the serious concussion Vick suffered last weekend, the call has Eagles fans wondering everywhere is Vick ever gonna get his starting job back and will he be the one who leads them to the Super Bowl. Hit the jump for more.
The Eagles drafted Foles out of Arizona in the third round and have long believed he has the makeup of an NFL starting quarterback. Foles has already shown good mobility for his size (6-6, 243) and the ability to keep his eye upfield when forced out of the pocket.

In the preseason, he threw a 70-yard touchdown pass to Damaris Johnson after being flushed way to his right after his protection broke down against a four-man Steelers rush.
In his debut against Dallas, after replacing Vick, Foles managed to avoid a sack and scramble away from pressure before hitting a wide-open Jeremy Maclin for a 44-yard touchdown.
Foles also made a couple of dangerous throws against the Cowboys, as rookies tend to do, but generally threw with accuracy and showed a very strong arm.
