PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Whether to replace Michael Vick with Nick Foles has been a topic of conversation this week. Well, it would be more accurate to say that “replace Foles with Vick,” has been more of a topic of conversation than it has usually been this year.
Foles is a rookie, and has not seen a snap of regular season play. Could a QB change to someone so inexperienced actually help the team? “You never know until it happens,” DeSean Jackson told NFL AM on NFL Network today. “We are too good of a team to be on a three-game losing streak, so whatever it is we can do to get things rolling, that is what we are here to do.”
Though Vick seems to have corrected his turnover problem, he hasn’t looked nearly as explosive as he has in the past. “I just don’t think he’s as comfortable as he usually is,” Jackson said. “A lot of teams are trying to shoot at him and come at him any way possible and give him less time.”
This isn’t the first time Jackson has wavered on a quarterback controversy. Jackson didn’t go out of his way to endorse Donovan McNabb when people were calling for Kevin Kolb. “No matter if it’s Kolb, Vick or McNabb throwing me the football. So I just hope everything works out for all their situations and I wish them the best,” Jackson said. He also said later that the team “didn’t lose a step,” with Kolb.
