  1. Michael Vick’s 10 greatest Eagles moments

    Mar 22, 2014, 11:00 AM EDT

    Michael Vick

    Michael Vick signed with the New York Jets on Friday, finally severing his ties to the Philadelphia Eagles organization after five seasons of service. While he ultimately came up short as the franchise quarterback, enduring his share ups and downs, benchings and injuries, there is absolutely no denying he authored a great number of memorable…

  2. Michael Vick expects to start in 2014, doesn’t seem to care where

    Jan 30, 2014, 4:15 PM EDT

    vick-run-gmen

    In a matter of weeks, Michael Vick will become a free agent. Once upon a time, this would’ve been big news in the NFL, but with two career playoff wins and soon to be 34 years of age, he’ll probably have to be less than discriminating to find a starting job. That doesn’t seem to…

  3. Counting Down the Eagles’ Needs: No. 8, Quarterback

    Jan 29, 2014, 12:00 PM EDT

    Free agency is right around the corner, and the draft will be here before you know it. With the Philadelphia Eagles’ offseason in full swing, we’re examining where the roster stands at each position, counting down based on team need. Check out the previous installments on tight ends and  running backs. It’s amazing to me…

  4. Stay or Leave: Early look at Eagles’ 2014 free agents

    maclin-cooper

    While it came too early this year—as it does too often around these parts—the offseason is one of the best things about the NFL. Organizations construct their rosters through free agency and the draft, and we get to play along as fantasy general managers, dissecting each decision along the way. As always, we’ll be examining…

  5. Report: Michael Vick ‘open’ to returning to Eagles in 2014

    Dec 22, 2013, 1:44 PM EDT

    mike.vick

    Michael Vick will be a free agent at season’s end, and there’s little doubt he would like to start in the NFL—he’s said as much. But suppose there isn’t much interest in a 34-year-old quarterback with two career playoff wins. What will Vick do then? Perhaps the four-time Pro Bowler will return to the Philadelphia…

  6. Michael Vick reacts to Nick Foles being named Eagles starting QB

    Nov 26, 2013, 3:52 PM EDT

    Patriots Eagles Football

    It can’t be stressed enough how impressive Michael Vick’s handling of the entire Nick Foles situation has been. We’ve seen so many veteran quarterbacks become indignant when a kid comes in and takes their job, and I know based on the comments fans have made in the past 11 months that many expected Vick to…

  7. Worst kept secret: Chip Kelly names Nick Foles Eagles starting QB

    Nov 26, 2013, 1:09 PM EDT

    foles9

    How obvious was it that Nick Foles would remain the Eagles’ starting quarterback for the rest of the season? Even Michael Vick thought it would be crazy to pull the second-year passer now. Chip Kelly would not confirm Foles would be the Birds’ signal-caller when Vick returned from a hamstring injury however—until Tuesday that is.…

  8. Could Michael Vick remain in Philly beyond 2013—as a backup?

    Nov 13, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    foles-vick-presser

    Suppose Nick Foles plays well enough over the final six games in 2013 that the Eagles aren’t pigeonholed into drafting another quarterback. Maybe they do, maybe they don’t, but it’s not automatically the top priority going in. Between Foles and Matt Barkley, Philadelphia has two quarterbacks under contract for next season. Most teams carry three,…

  9. Video: Chip Kelly names Reuben Frank starting quarterback

    Nov 11, 2013, 4:24 PM EDT

    chip-wave

    Bless an NFL beat reporters’ heart, for asking a head coach to reveal even the simplest piece of information—like who is the starting quarterback—can be more challenging than sneaking into Fort Knox. No, Chip Kelly isn’t ready to name Nick Foles the starter right now, no matter how many different ways it’s asked. And beware,…

  10. Nick Foles ties NFL record with seven touchdown passes

    Nov 3, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    nick.foles.cooper

    Even those folks who have been clamoring for Nick Foles to be the Eagles’ starting quarterback for the remainder of the season couldn’t have seen this coming. Foles threw more touchdown passes than incompletions in the Birds’ 49-20 victory over the Raiders on Sunday, tying the NFL single-game record with seven scores. Foles’ line: 22-of-28…

  11. Reminder for Chip Kelly: the Broncos won games with Tim Tebow at QB

    Oct 28, 2013, 2:17 PM EDT

    barkley

    Practically every Eagles fan understands this team in all likelihood does not have its franchise quarterback. For all the words that were spent on Michael Vick, Nick Foles, Matt Barkley and which one should or should not start, there are legitimate doubts that any one of them could ever be the man in Philadelphia. Chip…

  12. Offensive: Eagles offense held without a touchdown for second straight week

    Oct 27, 2013, 4:50 PM EDT

    vick-herremans

    As bad as things got in Andy Reid’s final season in Philadelphia, never did the Eagles go two full games without scoring a touchdown on offense. Even without 80 percent of the starters along the offensive line, even with LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson missing in the end, whether it was Michael Vick or Nick…

  13. Will Michael Vick be effective if he can’t run?

    Oct 24, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT

    vick-run-gmen

    The good news for the Eagles is Michael Vick is expected to play on Sunday—at least that’s the consensus among reporters. Chip Kelly sounds far less convinced, although who knows how much of that is gamesmanship on the head coach’s part. The bad news is Vick’s hamstring still may not be 100 percent by Sunday…

  14. Injuries muddy Eagles quarterback situation for Week 8

    Oct 21, 2013, 1:56 PM EDT

    Vick and Foles

    Philadelphia’s quarterback controversy may have been laid to rest, but as of Monday it still isn’t clear who will start against the Giants in Week 8. If healthy, it will be Michael Vick—but that’s a big if. Eagles head coach Chip Kelly refused to name a starter during his day-after press conference on the grounds…

  15. Busted: Nick Foles plays worst game as a pro on big stage versus Dallas

    Oct 20, 2013, 5:36 PM EDT

    foles-dallas

    Chip Kelly’s analysis of Nick Foles’ performance in a 17-3 home loss to the Dallas Cowboys: “He was off.” You can say that again. And again. And again. Amid calls from fans and writers (such as myself) for Foles to take over the reins as the Eagles’ starting quarterback from Michael Vick, the second-year quarterback…

  16. Marcus Vick: Nick Foles supporters are ‘silly peasants’ and Eagles fans are ‘dumb motherf***ers’

    Oct 20, 2013, 3:42 PM EDT

    Screen shot 2013-10-20 at 3.28.36 PM

    Paging all you silly peasants and dumb mother– nevermind. Marcus Vick took to Twitter Sunday to rub in an especially insufferable first half of Eagles football with his typically insufferable tweets. And now, Marcus’ thoughts, as Nick Foles was going 11 for 29 for 80 yards while getting sacked three times. Bear in mind, this…

  17. Video: Vick and Foles deliver joint press conference, won’t let job ruin the friendship

    Oct 17, 2013, 2:50 PM EDT

    foles-vick-presser

    The big news to come out of Michael Vick and Nick Foles’ historic joint press conference on Thursday was… wait—historic joint press conference? Yes, love was in the air as the two quarterbacks took the stage together to speak to the press—an NFL first according to Vick—and I’m sure there wasn’t a dry eye in…

  18. 5 statistics that should (but won’t) end Eagles quarterback debate

    Oct 14, 2013, 3:02 PM EDT

    vick-foles

    The trendy stat of the day for Michael Vick supporters, Nick Foles detractors, and fence-sitters everywhere: opponents’ record. The opponents in games Vick has started and “finished” (technically he was pulled from the Denver game, but the result was not in question) are 15-7. The record of the two teams Foles has beaten is 0-11.…

  19. Foles should be the starter: second-year QB masterful in Eagles 31-20 win at Tampa

    Oct 13, 2013, 4:50 PM EDT

    foles-spike

    If I’m Chip Kelly, I’ve seen all I needed to from Nick Foles. Simply put, the kid is playing a better quarterback than Michael Vick right now. The second-year field general picked up right where he left off last week in the Eagles’ 31-20 win over Tampa Bay. Foles completed 22 of 31 attempts for…

  20. Chip Shots: If Foles throws 27 TDs in Tampa Bay, he can win job

    Oct 7, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    foles-bucs

    Nick Foles may get the start in Tampa Bay, but Michael Vick is still the Birds’ quarterback. At least that’s the way Eagles head coach Chip Kelly is looking at the situation the day after Foles replaced an injured Vick and led Philadelphia to a 36-21 win over the New York Giants on Sunday. Actually,…

  21. Quarterback controversy? Nick Foles leads Eagles to victory in New York

    Oct 6, 2013, 5:36 PM EDT

    foles-desean

    When Michael Vick left the game with a hamstring injury and less than two minutes remaining in the first half, the Eagles were ahead 16-7, and Nick Foles quickly led the offense on a scoring drive to tack on three. But midway through the third quarter, the New York Giants had retaken the lead, and…

  22. ANNIHILATED: Broncos humiliate Eagles 52-20 in Denver

    Sep 29, 2013, 8:04 PM EDT

    broncos-humiliate-eagles

    Well, we told you there was a chance to win. Actually, I said it, and I stand by it. I also said what actually wound up happening—an embarrassing 52-20 loss—would not surprise anyone either. The Denver Broncos are an amazing football team, which should be fairly obvious to everybody by now. The next defense that…

  23. Eagles on pace to break NFL’s all-time rushing mark

    Sep 26, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT

    vick-mccoy

    Is LeSean McCoy the best running back in the NFL today? We actually asked that very question back in 2011, when Shady was en route to a league-high 20 touchdowns and wound up finishing fifth in yards from scrimmage with 1,624 in 15 games. There were backs who wound up with better totals, but for…

  24. The time Michael Vick outdueled Peyton Manning

    Sep 24, 2013, 1:35 PM EDT

    Michael Vick

    A lot of us—myself included—are just about ready to chalk up the Eagles’ trip to Denver this Sunday as another loss. The Birds have their share of flaws, but Peyton Manning has been simply masterful so far this season. You could argue he’s never been surrounded by so much talent before in his 16-year career,…

  25. Random Eagles Thoughts: 1-2, Time of Possession, and Mike Vick

    Sep 23, 2013, 2:01 PM EDT

    chip-vick

    On Being 1-2 Expectations are on a roller coaster. They started low before the season got underway, climbed exponentially after the Eagles throttled Washington in Week 1, now we’re down in the dumps after consecutive losses. All the while, how good this team actually is likely still lies somewhere in between. That said, their 1-2…
