Michael Vick knows the situation he's in.

In 2010, the Eagles opened the season with Kevin Kolb as their starting quarterback, only for him to go down due to injury. Vick came in and played magnificantly, which propelled him to the starter's role.

The role reversed this year, with Vick going down with a hamstring injury and Nick Foles stepping in to play exceptionally well.

Even Vick thinks it's time for the Eagles to stick with Foles.

"In all honesty, in all fairness, how can you take a guy out of the game who's been playing so well?" Vick said. "I've been in this stage before, and I know what it's like," Vick told Philadelphia radio station 94 WIP, via "I understand the position that this team is in, and the one thing I never want to do is be a distraction or put our team or our coaches in a position where they feel like they're not doing the right thing or I feel like they're not doing the right thing."

The Eagles were 2-4 with Vick as their starting quarterback. They are 4-1 with Foles in his five starts.

Now's the time for Philadelphia to stick with Foles as its starting quarterback.
