The fact that Foles remains the starter is not shocking. However, it's important that, after all his past posturing, Kelly sat firmly behind his young quarterback.
Kelly had adamantly said he wouldn't make a decision on the future of the quarterback position until Michael Vick was healthy.
That day finally arrived.
The announcement should buoy Foles' confidence. The second-year pro won't have to look over his shoulder if he has a bad game, Kelly said.
With the starter questions behind him, Foles can focus on the Cardinals, which will be far and away the best defense he's faced this season.
