It was all downhill from there.
Hoying went 1-9 in his next 10 starts and lasted just two more seasons, throwing just five passes, after leaving Philadelphia following the 1998 season. Donovan McNabb was selected with the No. 2 overall pick by Reid in his first year here in 1999. McNabb was the solution for a decade, leading the Eagles to five NFC championship games and one Super Bowl loss.
Now, though, Vick appears on his way out.
Vick then was rewarded with a $100 million contract in August 2011. Only $35.5 million of that deal is guaranteed money and Vick is due to make $15.5 million in 2013. He certainly won’t get that as a backup.
NOTES: Reid fired defensive line coach Jim Washburn and replaced him with Tommy Brasher, who served in that role with the Eagles in 1985 and from 1999-2005. … RB LeSean McCoy is in stage three of his concussion rehab. McCoy has missed two straight games. … Reid hinted that there could be changes in the secondary. The Eagles have allowed 16 TD passes and have no interceptions in the last six games.
