Mike Vick, Marty Mornhinweg Will Remain in Current Roles
Following a wild week where the Eagles have already fired Juan Castillo on Tuesday, the Eagles will not make any changes at the quarterback position and they will not change play-callers.
Citing team sources, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports Michael Vick and Marty Mornhinweg will keep their jobs coming out of the bye in Week eight when the Eagles face Vick’s former team the Falcons.
Andy Reid announced on Tuesday that he was going to rip the team apart and evaluate everything
I try to look at everything,” Reid explained. ”I didn’t focus in on the one thing. I tried to look at everything. So, that’s how I went about it.”
Reid was asked if part of the evaluation process included Vick and Mornhinweg.
“As I sit here today he’s the starting quarterback,” Reid said about Vick. When asked about the other coordinators on the staff, Reid responded: “I’m still evaluating. I’m going through everything.”
The Eagles will face an undefeated Falcons team in what could be a audition for Vick’s job. If he struggles, could the Eagles and Reid look to rookie third round pick, Nick Foles. Foles was impressive in the preseason, but that was against second and third team defenses. As for the play-calling, Mornhinweg will remain in-charge of calling plays a job many that cover the team aren’t so sure he actually does 100-percent.
