Vick: Foles Should Remain Starter

Michael Vick has been supportive of Nick Foles and his success since taking over for him when he was injured in the Week 5 win over the Giants.

Head coach Chip Kelly has refused to name a starter until both quarterbacks are full healthy, which could be the case next week when the team returns from the bye. In an interview with SportsRadio 94WIP on Thursday, Vick said that Foles should remain the starter.

"In all honesty, in all fairness, how can you take a guy out of the game who's been playing so well?" Vick said. "I've been in this stage before, and I know what it's like. I understand the position that this team is in, and the one thing I never want to do is be a distraction or put our team or our coaches in a position where they feel like they're not doing the right thing or I feel like they're not doing the right thing."

On this week's edition of Cover 2, FOX 29's Howard Eskin and former Eagles linebacker Garry Cobb discuss the quarterback situation and much more.
