No. 7 has earned that role with stellar, dependable play no one could have expected when the Eagles signed him in 2009.
However, as his inability to stay on the field has been displayed in each of the Eagles’ preseason games thus far, is he their best option should they wish to play a competitive, consistent brand of football this season?
When healthy, there is no question that Vick is the top quarterback on the team. He is the leader of the offense, a vastly improved passer and an athletic nightmare for opposing defenses trying to take him down.
Unfortunately, that athletic ability, which enables him to scramble in and out of the pocket better than any quarterback before him, is also his greatest flaw. It creates opportunities for punishing hits met with greater force because of the speed at which he is traveling, often res...

If I didn’t know any better, I’d swear that Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles was already a five-time pro-bowler and Super Bowl MVP.
Fortunately, I know that he’s just a rookie who has attempted a mere 38 passes in two preseason games during his 15 day career as an Eagle.
But wow, what a 38 pass attempts it has been!

“I can only do what I can do,” Vick said to USA Today...
Nick Foles will start Friday’s preseason game for the Philadelphia Eagles, filling in for Michael Vick. While Vick appears to be fine, the Eagles simply don’t want to risk any further injury in the final two preseason games.
On Friday, the Eagles will fave the Browns, who have allowed just 329 through the air and have picked off five passes through two games, so this may actually...
Eagles coach Andy Reid says there's no question Michael Vick will be ready to play the season opener despite injuring his ribs again.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles faced an NFL first defense for the first time in his career on Monday night and if he was nervous about it he certainly didn’t let on.
In the 27-10 victory by the Eagles over the Browns, Foles finished the first half 12/19 for 146 yards with 2 touchdowns and 1 interception for a 99.9 passer rating. At...
