I think there are two ways Andy Reid can save his job. If he makes the playoffs or if Nick Foles shows some promise. The former isn’t happening most likely. At 3-5, they’d have to go 7-1 the rest of the way to make the playoffs most likely and while Reid is a great coach in the 2nd half of the season, I can’t see that happening. However, if he benches Vick for Foles and Foles shows some promise, maybe they go 4-4 or 5-3 the rest of the way, Reid will be able to blame his early season struggles on Vick and convince them to keep him around to do the one thing he’s great at, which is developing quarterbacks. Even behind this offensive line, Foles could succeed. Vick makes them look worse than they are as he holds the ball the longest from snap to throw out of any quarterback in the NFL and he has for 2 seasons.
