Michael Vick likely to start for Eagles after Nick Foles breaks hand

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

The Eagles were 3-6 in Vick’s nine starts this year. Vick, in his fourth season with Philadelphia, completed 58.5 percent of his passes for 2,165 yards with 11 TDs and nine interceptions before his injury.

Vick was not in uniform Sunday. Veteran Trent Edwards served as Foles‘ backup, and he’ll be Vick’s backup against the Giants. Edwards has not thrown a pass this year.

“You’re talking about a pretty good quarterback here that has a lot of experience,” Reid said of Vick. “I think he’ll be excited to be out there and I think he’ll do a good job.”

The Giants go into the game with faint playoff hopes. They need a win over the Eagles and losses by Minnesota, Chicago and Dallas to reach the postseason.
