Quarterback Champs:Cam Newton- 20/26, 242 yards, 3 TDs; 9 Rush, 30 yards, Rush TD- 30.6 fantasy pointsWhelp, Cam produced on this day, but he continues to be quite the rollercoaster ride. Let me point out that it’s not a pleasant ride, it’s more like riding space mountain directly after eating Mexican. His last three performances have yielded 30.6, 6.7, and 29.3 points, respectively.  Keep the Advil close by… Nick Foles- 22/31, 296 yards, 4 Total TDs (1 Rush)- 30 fantasy pointsNow whoever saw this coming, raise your hand… (That’s what I thought). All kidding aside, Foles looked pretty darn sharp in this game, and many are pleading to let him keep the job as long as he continues to produce. It’s interesting to see where this QB controversy goes from here, because Foles appears to fit Chip Kelly’s mold a little better than Vick… Andy Dalton- 26/40, 337 yards, 3 TDs, INT; 7 Rush, 17 yards – 25.1 fantasy pointsThe Red Rocket had it going on today!

Monday Review: It starts at the line for Eagles

The Eagles offensive line protected Nick Foles on his three touchdown passes, including a second-quarter strike to DeSean Jackson. Forget the final score for a moment. Take Nick Foles out of the equation. There was a reason the Eagles won this game on Sunday. Does it have to do with a great performance by Foles? Yes. Does it have to do with some timely defensive stops? Yes.  Does...

Foles accounts for 4 TDs to lead Eagles past Bucs

The ball sailed through the air leaving Nick Foles’ right hand and spiraling deep downfield before settling into the hands of Riley Cooper 47 yards later for a touchdown in the third quarter. And just in case there were still questions about his ability to hit the home run Foles did it again in the fourth finding DeSean Jackson in the left corner of the end zone for a 36-yard...

NFL Rumors: Should Nick Foles remain the Philadelphia Eagles QB?

The Philadelphia Eagles routed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-20 on Sunday with Nick Foles turning in an impressive performance while filling in for injured QB Mike Vick.

Are Eagles Better Off With Michael Vick or Nick Foles?

The Eagles have had a number of problems this season. However, they finally have a good problem. They have two very capable quarterbacks who can win football games. The only issue is which quarterback to go with moving forward. It used to be an unwritten rule that you couldn’t lose your job due to injury. I hope Michael Vick doesn’t believe that. Let’s remember that Vick took...

Fantasy Football: Week 7 start ‘em sit ‘em QB

Start Nick Foles vs. Cowboys. Foles is going to be the starter this week against one of the worst defenses in the league. I’m sure Cowboys’ ex-D.C. Rob Ryan is the first one laughing at this group of defensive backs allowing a league-worst 347 yards-per-game to opposing QBs. Start Tony Romo @ Eagles. Ok, so this game is obviously going to be a shoot-out. The Eagles’ pass defense...

Bucs give up halftime lead to Eagles, remain winless

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Nick Foles threw three touchdown passes and ran for a fourth, leading the Philadelphia Eagles to a 31-20 victory over the winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

2013 NFL Scouting: Is Nick Foles the Answer for Chip Kelly and the Eagles?

During the course of the 2013 preseason, in Philadelphia it was obvious that Nick Foles was nothing more than the backup quarterback. Michael Vick seemed tailor made for the Chip Kelly offense, and he'd decidedly out-played Foles throughout the summer. Even with Foles leading the Eagles to a win over the Giants, Kelly and the Eagles coaching staff seemed to be sticking...

Coming Foles Circle

When the off-season began for the Eagles, it was clear that times would be changing.  How much things would change was merely the question.  Would they overhaul the roster?  Would they resign Vick?  Would their defensive ineptitude come close to improving?  Well, to answer those questions, no, yes, and no.  When I originally saw the signing of Chip Kelly, I was surprised by...

Strange week comes to a conclusion as Philadelphia Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers face off

Nick Foles, the likely quarterback in Sunday’s game, will face Mike Glennon rather than Josh Freeman in his second consecutive year of facing the team. It’s been a strange week leading up to the Philadelphia Eagles’ game with Tampa Bay. Mike Vick, still sporting a hamstring injury from the Week 5 matchup against the Giants, was limited in practice during the week. When asked...

Michael Vick: Injury ‘worse than what I thought’
