Mandatory Credit: John Geliebter-USA TODAY SportsPhiladelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly has finally made the decision that everyone has been waiting for: Nick Foles will be the starting QB for the rest of the season in Philly.

It shouldn't come as a shock to anyone, since Foles has already set a few NFL records in his short time at the helm.

He had his 7-TD game against the Eagles, and then kept going. He actually set a record (thanks in large part to that game) for the highest QB rating ever in one month.

Now, Foles has officially received the stamp of approval from his head coach, and no longer has to look over his shoulder at Michael Vick, wondering whether or not he'll still get the chance to start.

Do you think this is the right move for the Eagles? Was it smart of them to commit to Foles, or should they give Michael Vick another shot? What do you think?
