A lot of stuff to evaluate tonight besides just the quarterbacks...In fact, our own GK Brizer thinks the performance of Mike Vick in the 2nd quarter will be worthy of more critical focus than Foles in the starter role. But keep an eye on the Eagles' linebackers, especially on the outside. Oh there's so much to see... Take it away, smart phans!
