With all the questions and wondering if Nick Foles will be starting for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013, the answer may be that there will be nobody else available who is better. First, let me say that the following is not an indictment of Foles in any way, it’s simply a logical look at possible alternatives. I’m not saying the Eagles need to find someone else nor am I saying they should anoint Foles as the starter right now. With that out of the way, let’s look at this for a minute and see what other choices are out there… The list for potential quarterbacks is a small one. Michael Vick and Trent Edwards are on the roster so they are obvious choices, although Vick’s contract and mediocre play likely mean he will be cut. Outside of the organization, who could the Eagles get that would be an upgrade over Foles? Foles certainly isn’t a world-beater right now so the bar is not set all that high for finding an upgrade. Therein lies the problem with the quarterback position though, go...

I thought guard Evan Mathis and kicker Alex Henery might have avoided the shutout... But no, not unless they get into the Pro Bowl as alternates.
It's no big whoop as far as the actual NFC vs. AFC All-Star Game in Hawaii goes. I don't even watch the game. I just watch the pregame features, maybe catch an isolated series of plays if our guys are involved.
But I can...
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is not willing to renegotiate his contract, which pays him $15.5 million next season, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Friday.

Andy Reid has been fired by nearly everyone except the man in charge.
It's a foregone conclusion in Philadelphia and around the NFL that Reid will coach his last game with the Eagles on Sunday at the New York Giants. Fans already have a wish list for a new coach and the media has speculated for months about Reid's successor.

“From each one according to his ability. To each one according to his need,” is one of the tenets of socialism. Of course, most Americans don’t know that because most Americans know nothing about socialism, and think it’s the same exact thing as Communism. You can thank Ronald Reagan and his propaganda campaigns against socialized medicine for that.
It’s amazing that so...
In the coming days it’s expected that longtime Eagles head coach Andy Reid will get the boot after completing yet another disappointing season. And one would think given all the hardships Reid has endured on and off the field (especially with his family) he (Reid) would welcome a year off to perhaps collect himself and [...]

Entering the last week of the season I'm sitting at 153-87. That's ok but not great. I'd like to be over 170 for the season, but it is what it is at this point. Let's finish strong.
With teams resting players and teams out, I'll also take a look at the postseason and offseason for the teams in addition to my picks.
