Found October 13, 2013 on The Bay Cave:

The game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Philadelphia Eagles was not fair. Apparently no one got the players ready to play because the Bucs were out-coached, out-smarted, out-everything’d. And who does all that fall on? The Bucs are 1-10 in their last eleven games dating back to last season. The last time there were so many losses a certain coach got fired but he had more success with a far less talented team. But yet, this is a well-coached football team. “I believe it is a well-coached football team,” Schiano said via the Tampa Bay Times. “Not well enough. There are certain things we have to get done consistently. We’ll get this done in one game and this done in another game, but we’re not getting it all together. That may frustrate some.” It is frustrating some. And I’m sure it’s frustrating the players, they just haven’t said anything. Nick Foles exploited the Bucs defense. They couldn’t disrupt his concentration if they wanted to. He found DeSean Jackson twice in the endzone. He even ran one in on a draw. Foles finished 22/31 for 296 yards, four total touchdowns, and no interceptions. His quarterback rating of 133 proves that he had his way. On the bright side, Bucs’ rookie Mike Glennon showed improvement. He finished the game 26/43 for 273 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. Both touchdowns were to Vincent Jackson and his lone interception was on a ball thrown to Tiquan Underwood in which he just stopped running his route. All-in-all, the Buccaneers are just not coached properly. Penalties that can easily be avoided and poor decisions made in-game from the sideline are a direct reflection of a team whose coach may be in way over his head.

Monday Review: It starts at the line for Eagles

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...

DeSean Jackson does Cousin Terio touchdown dance again (GIF)

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...

Foles Likely to Get Another Start on Sunday

Eagles QB Nick Foles will likely start the Eagles’ next game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. Michael Vick reportedly isn’t coming along too well with his hamstring injury.

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...

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...

Philadelphia Eagles: Nick Foles gives Philly the best chance to win

Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles are a faced with a situation that most head coaches hate to be faced with, a quarterback controversy.

The Great Debate: 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.

Chip Kelly Won’t Name Starter At QB

Chip Kelly left the door open early last for Nick Foles to win the Eagles quarterback job if he went 100-100 with 20 touchdowns. Foles wasn’t perfect Sunday, but he was damn good going 22-31 for 296 yards and four touchdowns.  Foles had a sizzling 133.3 passer rating against a Tampa Bay team that has completely mailed it in. Foles had perfect day turnover wise, committing an un...

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...
