WHEN Jeff Lurie said “We need someone to step up, whether it’s an existing young quarterback or somebody we go out and acquire,” he basically told Chip Kelly to sit Michael Vick for the remainder of the season.

There is no way that Nick Foles or Matt Barkley can step up if they are on the bench. They have to play to have the opportunity. Since you don't play more than 1 QB at a time, that means Vick has to take a seat. 

So now the owner is telling the coach who to play? As long as he knows what he doing I guess it's fine for Lurie to do that, it is his team after all. But for fans who have an issue with the RAIDERS, you may want to hold your tongues a bit, because the EAGLES are looking more and more like the 1998-2011 RAIDERS with every passing month since Howie Roseman joined the team. A terrifying thought since Jeff Lurie has never possessed 1/50th of AL DAVIS'S football acumen, and Howie Roseman is no Amy Trask.

Take it from a guy who's survived this roller-coaster ride already: THERE IS NOTHING EASY ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO ENDURE!

Your loyalty is about to be tested.
