Some of the responses in this thread are laughable.
Alge Crumpler echoed some of what LS has been saying. He was on a local radio show and said Vick was incredibly inconsistent in Atlanta and this is what he's seeing now. That's a guy that played with him for years. Said at his best he can beat anyone...at his worst the team sucks.
Also, do people really believe he'll be back? Barring a miracle, he's gone.

I just think its funny that you're gettig attacked as if you're critiquing a guy that's been playing good. He's been pretty bad so far... Is it all his fault no, but he's definitely one of the reasons for this teams record.
1. That you can prove someone's opinion.
2. That mora sr.'s opinion is absurd. The guy coached 15 years at the professional level. And he was talking about his his son's qb! Mora has more insight than some reporter that never played or coached at anything approaching that level.
3. it was funny because More extracted his comment. That is awesome.
4. Accusing him of hating Vick blindly. The guy just thinks he is not very good and we should probably think about replacing him. He has said a million times he doesn't dislike him.
You vick defenders get so emotional.
Vick has been horrible for us. Is he the only one who has been terrible? No. I did think he gave us our best chance of winning but now i say he doesnt. I say we put Foles and and see what we have. Our offense is one of the lowest scoring in the league so we need to try something different. It is time for us to move on cause in all reallity this team isnt winning nothing and Vick has had 7 games to get this offense going and hasnt gotten the job done.
When has anyone waivered from that stance?

I'm not defending Vick. I want to move to Foles. That's more of an emotional response.
There just isn't enough people saying "coach killer" about Vick for it to be called perception. A blogger and an ex coach, who didn't coach Vick, isn't perception. I think to get to the point of perception, there needs to be multiple, respected voices around the league saying this. Hopefully you can admit that Jim Mora Sr, Crumpler, a CBS blogger, and one article in an Atlanta news paper isn't substantial enough to build perception. If you still think that's enough, then yes...that's called twisting the evidence.

God knows I have been hard on Vick. I wanted no part of him in the first place and still don't until this day. If we continue to lose, I do want to see Foles as the starter. I want to see what it's like to have an accurate QB and hopefully a more balanced attack. As it stands right now, they need to just let Vick do his thing and stop forcing him to be a pocket QB. We saw what happened to McNabb when they forced him to become a pocket QB.
I want to see if Foles is legit, otherwise I fear we might lose next year too and unless Vick starts getting it done, the change needs to happen. Additionally, maybe it will help wake the rest of the team up, we saw it happen when McNabb was benched in 2008.
Vick was unbearably bad the first few weeks of the season. Unbearably. To his defense though, he had virtually no preseason to work with due to injury.
Since week 4, Vick has completed 63% of his passes with 6 Touchdowns and only 2 turnovers. All of that with an average QB rating of 91.3.
91.3...Think about that.
People are crying for Vick to be a game manager and that we would be successful, but that is EXACTLY what he has been doing and then some. I have gotten on Vick, I would like to see Foles at some point, but Vick is not the reason we're losing football games.
The reason is the defense and play calling, though play calling hasn't been as bad as people want to make it out to be. We should be using McCoy slightly more and if we're going to carry several HBs, we should use some of them too. If Vick isn't turning the ball over (he has been good) and puts us in a position to win (has continually done that) then the play-calling is sufficient enough. We do need to be more balanced, I truly believe that, but it can get us by.
The defense, is not. The defense lost us the last three games, not Vick. If the defense (though they played a great game) makes a stop in Pittsburgh, we win. If they don't blow TWO 10 point leads, we beat the Lions. I won't even get into the Falcons game, but they flat out stunk it up.
Is Vick worth his contract? Probably not. Is he going to be here next year? Probably not. If we continue to lose will he be benched? Probably.
There are a lot of things wrong with this team and while he has had his faults, Vick has not been one of them recently.

I completely agree Vick has improved these couple of weeks, but the thing here is that the team might be looking for scapegoats.
The defense has been a joke, Babin and Cole have been suckin ***, I think we should take a few 3-4 looks, because right now we are making Todd Bowles play that awfull wide 9.
Can't blame Bowles too because he is being imposed certain style that he is not used to work with, this is all on Andy and his ****ing love for the wide 9, which led to the Juan Castillo experiment.
While we could have hired Spags in the off season we ended up with an O-Line coach as a DC.
All on Reid.

91.3 wow. his qb rating in weeks 2, 4 and 5 is 99. think about that.
also, he had 4 TOs during that period. not 2. 2 picks against the lions and 2 fumbles against pittsburgh. and in the best game he played in your selective stretch he had 2 terrible fumbles in a 2 point loss. one on a 1st and goal! cost us the f'in game! you even admit the d played a "great game" against pittsburgh. held a future hall of fame qb to 16 points. but somehow they lost the game, not the qb who fumbled the ball into the end zone on a first and goal and took 7 points off the board.
his qb rating in the last 2 games is 80. which as a qb rating puts you about 23rd in the league. both losses. his qb rating for the year? 78.6. good for 25th. we have won despite of vick, not because of him! and in the losses you want to talk about how great he has played!
SPLITS CMP ATT YDS CMP% AVG LNG TD INT RAT
In Wins 71 118 929 60.2 7.87 49 4 6 75.1
In Losses 86 148 894 58.1 6.04 70 5 2 81.3
even after the debacle of a defensive performance against atl, we are still 12th in the league in defense (yds/game) and 16th in pts/gm. but it is all playcalling and defense. the same play callers who helped vick to the best year of his career. if we had spagnuolo's (who you all seem to have a boner for) D, we would be 0-7!
if it is hard to read the stats above, his line in eagles wins is qb rating of 75.1 with 4 td and 6 int (not even counting fumbles). in eagles losses 5 tds and 2 int, 58.1 comp percentage and qb rating of 81.3. now those are some performances we can get behind!

Then there were the 2 ten point leads he gave us with Zona that the D failed to protect.
Keep making him out to be the scapegoat. All your stats have shown is that in our losses, Vick wasn't the only problem.
