FOXSports.com: Breaking Down the QB Situation for Every NFL Team

Philadelphia Eagles

Starter/backup: Michael Vick/Nick Foles

2012 summary: Vick followed a disappointing 2011 campaign with an even worse effort in 2012. Foles got the chance to start six games as a rookie after Vick suffered a concussion. Both quarterbacks combined to lead Philadelphia to only four victories, helping to cost Andy Reid his job as head coach.

Outlook: Vick agreed to a restructured contract to play under new head coach Chip Kelly, whose wide-open offensive system may be a better fit for him than Reid’s West Coast-style scheme. Foles isn’t as athletic as Vick, but the Eagles feel strongly enough about his potential that overtures about a potential trade to Kansas City where Reid is now head coach were rebuffed. The Eagles also have signed Dennis Dixon, who excelled under Kelly at the University of Oregon but has failed to duplicate the same success in five NFL seasons. —Alex Marvez (AP Photos)
