Jason Hatcher to get his wish: Michael Vick is out, Nick Foles will start for the Eagles

Asked on Monday which Eagles quarterback he'd rather face on Sunday -- Michael Vick or Nick Foles -- Cowboys defensive tackle Jason Hatcher said it was a no-brainer.

He'd rather face Foles, because he was more of a drop-back passer rather than having to chase Vick all over the field.

“I would like to see Foles, because Vick is like a rabbit,” Hatcher said. “He’s all over the place. Foles is more like a stationary guy in the pocket.

“But 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.” 

Well, Hatcher will get his wish as the Eagles have ruled Vick out for the game because of an injury, leaving Foles as the starter for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Foles has been pretty good in wins over the Giants and Buccaneers in place of the injured Vick the past two weeks, completing 38 of 56 passes for 493 yards and five touchdowns.

“Foles can throw it, now,” Hatcher said. “He can throw it. It’s going to be a challenge either way.”
