Are the Eagles Putting Too Much Faith In Nick Foles?

The Philadelphia Eagles may have been handling everything else with ease, but there looks like there will be one bump in the road, and that bump is the backup quarterback. As we know the starting quarterback for the Eagles is Nick Foles, with Michael Vick as the backup quarterback.  Being as though Vick wants to be a starting quarterback and is up for free agency, his time with the Eagles will most likely come to an end very soon.

With Vick moved out the way, that leaves third string quarterback Matt Barkley, who wasn’t the worst but far from the best. I want to cut him a little slack, but since this the National Football League you are expected to play at your best at any given time. Due to Vick and Foles having injuries at the time, Barkley had to step up to the plate for two games.

Since the Eagles had a good season, they have found their way back on everyone’s radar, which could be a good and bad thing. The good thing is being recognized for their hard work, but the bad thing is this now makes them a target, and if they find themselves facing a quarterback situation, then this could be a bad season for Eagles.
