Let's face it, I have a better chance of starting at quarterback for the Eagles Sunday at Washington than Michael Vick does.

Vick, suffering from a "pretty significant concussion" according to Eagles' head coach Andy Reid, will give way to Nick Foles, who finished off the Cowboys game Sunday (right). He will become the 10th quarterback to start for the Eagles during the Andy Reid era.

The Birds are 5-4 in those nine first starts, but have generated a 100-yard game out of a running back five times in those nine games. Duce Staley did the honors for Doug Pederson and Donovan McNabb, Brian Westbrook for Jeff Garcia, and LeSean McCoy for Vick and Vince Young.
