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

    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…

  2. You’ve got to start the reigning NFC offensive player of the week, right?

    Oct 16, 2013, 10:55 AM EDT

    nick.foles

    Nick Foles was named the NFC offensive player of the week this morning after his impressive performance leading the Philadelphia Eagles to victory down in Tampa over the weekend. Also impressive is the rate at which Foles has been throwing interceptions. Which is to say not very frequently. knockonwood CSN’s Reuben Frank takes a look…

  3. 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.…

  4. Even the Eagles players can’t keep track of their starting QB: Shady McCoy edition

    Oct 14, 2013, 1:43 PM EDT

    Patriots Eagles Football

    Mike Vick, Nick Foles. Both pretty good quarterbacks! But who is the starting quarterback for next Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. WE MUST KNOW NOW PLEASE! Homie Chip don’t play that. The Eagles head coach was a perfect politician on Sunday after the Eagles win over Tampa and again today during his Monday press conference.…

  5. Foles, Eagles, Foles!: A legend is born. @FakeWIPCaller is ready to call the Eagles’ quarterback controversy.

    Oct 14, 2013, 11:18 AM EDT

    nick.foles.cooper

    In Sunday’s thrilling victory over Tampa Bay, Eagles fans got a glimpse at the future of the franchise — and that future is Nick Foles. Not only did Foles throw for 296 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions, but he was poised, confident, and didn’t choke at all. Foles led the first-place Eagles to a…

  6. 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…

  7. Nick Foles drives Eagles right down the field to take early 7-0 lead

    Oct 13, 2013, 1:15 PM EDT

    nick.foles

    Well that was a pretty damn fantastic way to open a football game. A well-executed screen pass to the dangerous Shady McCoy went for 44 yards on the first play from scrimmage and the Eagles were off and rolling. A couple of nice completions to Riley Cooper, DeSean Jackson, and the first of the year…

  8. 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,…

  9. Report: Mike Vick to miss Sunday’s start against Tampa

    Oct 7, 2013, 12:29 PM EDT

    mike.vick

    Mike Vick’s hamstring issues are expected to keep him out of Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Bucs, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Nick Foles, who came in and helped the team earn the victory up in New York yesterday, will step in and take the starting role. Vick not being able to go eases…

  10. 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…

  11. Why aren’t the Eagles trading for [Player Z from Mars]?

    Sep 24, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    howie

    Two-time All-Pro safety Jairus Byrd is stuck in Buffalo playing on a one-year deal thanks to the franchise tag, and he seemingly wants out. The Eagles are desperate for so much as a capable safety, so why doesn’t general manager Howie Roseman pick up the phone and make that call? The Cleveland Browns just shipped…

  12. The Eagles Could’ve Had Colin Kaepernick According to Report

    Sep 16, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT

    kap

    Interesting timing for Michael Vick to come out and set a new career high with 428 yards through the air against the Chargers. Little more than an hour before the contest, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the Eagles had almost traded for one NFL starter one year earlier, and had designs on drafting another. In case…

  13. 2013 Philadelphia Eagles: Predictions for All 16 Games

    Sep 5, 2013, 7:30 PM EDT

    mccoy-skins

    Week 1 at Washington – Win, 37-27 Chip Kelly shocks the world with his offense – by coming out and running the triple option out of the Flexbone on Monday Night Football. Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy, and Bryce Brown combine to rush for over 300 yards against the Redskins, who are caught completely off-guard by…

  14. Nick Foles and Some of the Eagles Wrap Up the Preseason Tonight

    Aug 29, 2013, 4:12 PM EDT

    foles-jets

    The best part about Week 4 of the preseason is it’s the end. All 32 teams are in action tonight, though we use the term “team” loosely because you won’t see m/any starters. The quality of these games is always poor, and by now I’m sure we’ve all had our fill of glorified scrimmages that…

  15. The Over/Under on How Many Starts Vick Makes in 2013 Will Surprise You

    Aug 28, 2013, 1:59 PM EDT

    vick-hat

    Some people believe Michael Vick is a very good to great NFL quarterback, some think he’s an overrated, inconsistent, and flawed player. Wherever you happen to fall on that spectrum, there’s one aspect to Vick’s game almost everyone can agree on: he’s injury prone. Vick is the Eagles’ starting quarterback for now, but even if…

  16. Mike Vick Wasn’t That Bad in Jacksonville, and Other Offensive Observations

    Aug 26, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Michael-Vick-throwaway

    On the surface, Michael Vick’s first game as the newly reinstated starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles seemed like a mess. He didn’t demonstrate flawless precision like the two games prior. He seemed to be holding on to the ball too long in general. He made some horrendous decisions with the football. Some of that…

  17. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly from the Eagles’ Third Preseason Game

    Aug 24, 2013, 11:35 PM EDT

    Nick Foles, Chip Kelly

    Despite pulling out a 31-24 win in Jacksonville on Saturday night, there is no question this will go down as the most disappointing of the Eagles’ four preseason games. All you’re really looking for from these glorified scrimmages is execution, and it was lacking in bounds by Chip Kelly’s squad. The offense looked sloppy and…

  18. What They’re Saying: Players and Coaches React to Vick Being Named Eagles’ QB

    Aug 20, 2013, 3:10 PM EDT

    Patriots Eagles Football

    Chip Kelly dropped some big news today, naming Mike Vick the Eagles’ starting quarterback for Week 1 against the Washington Redskins and the foreseeable future. He probably could have waited another week to make an announcement, but Vick was clearly ahead of Nick Foles after the last preseason game and that was unlikely to change,…

  19. No, the Eagles Should Not Trade Nick Foles Now

    Aug 20, 2013, 2:20 PM EDT

    foles-franchise

    You may have heard the chatter on talk radio or in some shallow corner of the internet. Rich Hoffman wrote what I’m sure is a thoughtful piece (behind a subscriber wall) on the topic today for the Daily News. Since Nick Foles failed to overtake Michael Vick in the Eagles’ quarterback competition, the team should…

  20. Have We Seen Enough of the Eagles’ QB Competition? And More Observations

    Aug 19, 2013, 6:30 AM EDT

    Patriots Eagles Football

    At this point you probably should be resigned to the inevitable. Barring injury or a dramatic reversal of fortune, Michael Vick will be named the Eagles’ starting quarterback sometime between now and September 9. It’s not that Nick Foles has been bad by any means. The 24 year old moved the offense quite capably. It’s…

  21. Trending Up? Eagles Move Ball at Will, Allow Zero TDs Against Panthers

    Aug 15, 2013, 11:20 PM EDT

    mccoy-panthers

    It’s only preseason, and believe me, the Eagles still have plenty of kinks to work out. A pair of turnovers cost the offense an opportunity to jump all over the opponent early, an opponent that may have left the defense off the hook a few times due to their own inefficiency. When the gun sounded…

  22. All Eyes on Eagles’ Defense in Second Preseason Game – What We Want to See

    Aug 15, 2013, 2:45 PM EDT

    Brandon LaFell, Nate Allen

    The Eagles’ defense has been taking a beating all week. First they had to fight Tom Brady and 10 of his best friends last Friday, the result of which was – to put it bluntly – an ass whoopin’. And over the six days since, observers have been picking over the scraps, questioning everything from…

  23. Look at This Huge Pocket Vick Had, and Other Eagles’ Observations on Offense

    Aug 12, 2013, 12:40 PM EDT

    If you’re hoping to learn more about Chip Kelly’s offense, there are plenty of valuable resources out there that can explain it better than I can. If you’ve already been exposed to Chip when he was at Oregon, earlier we linked to Smart Football’s piece on what coach brought to the NFL in his preseason…

    Aug 10, 2013, 12:16 AM EDT

    chip-kinne

    In many respects the Eagles’ first preseason game under head coach Chip Kelly probably met a lot of expectations. Philly’s offense was potent, be it by quick strike or methodical march. The defense on the other hand is still a work in progress. And not surprisingly, an opponent that’s reached the playoffs nine times in…

  25. Vick to Start Preseason Week 1, Foles Gets the Nod in Week 2

    Aug 8, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT

    vick-foles

    Somehow this was even more anti-climactic than I was expecting. The news that Michael Vick will start the Eagles’ first preseason game on Friday would not have meant much, because it wouldn’t necessarily be an indication he was going to start the regular season opener in Washington, or that he even owned a significant lead…
