Cowboys DL Jason Hatcher on Eagles QB situation: I'd rather see Foles
Cowboys defensive lineman Jason Hatcher would rather chase down Nick Foles than Michael Vick. Hatcher said on Tuesday he would like to see Foles start for the Eagles.
Cowboys defensive tackle Jason Hatcher doesn't get to pick who Philadelphia's starting quarterback will be on Sunday -- because why would Chip Kelly let an opposing player pick the Eagles starting quarterback -- but if Hatcher did get to pick, he knows exactly who he'd want to see.
"I would like to see [Nick] Foles because Vick is like a rabbit," Hatcher said, via ESPN.com. "He's all over the place. Foles is more like a stationary guy in the pocket. Both of them are awesome quarterbacks. Foles is playing his butt off these last couple of games. Either one, but I would take Foles over Vick."
Hatcher just might get his wish. With Michael Vick still nursing a hamstring injury, it's not clear who the Eagles starting quarterback will be yet, but it's looking more and more like it will be Foles.
The second-year quarterback took reps with the Eagles first team on Tuesday and Vick has already said he could probably use another week of rehab. "I feel it getting better, it's just when I try to burst it's still that knot is there," Vick said of his hamstring. "But I think another week of rehab will put me in a position where I can start gaining confidence in it and doing the things I need to do."
Foles made his first start of the season on Sunday in Philadelphia's 31-20 win over Tampa Bay and threw for 296 yards and three touchdowns.
Whoever the Eagles starting quarterback is, they'll probably want to do their best to avoid Hatcher. The veteran defensive lineman sacked Robert Griffin III two times in the Cowboys 31-16 win over the Redskins on Sunday.
