Quarterback Nick Foles has become the latest failure for Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid and his embattled team management.
Harsh? Sure. But the same can be said for the entire 2012 Eagles season. Foles is a rookie whose first NFL start came in Sunday's 31-6 loss to the Washington Redskins only because turnover-prone Michael Vick was sidelined with a concussion.
But Foles and his wobbly performance as Vick's understudy symbolized much more: The disappointing starting debut of the former University of Arizona standout has become another blemish on an Eagles' regime that has been in charge for 13 years.
It's an administration quickly approaching lame duck status after the Eagles dropped their fourth consecutive game, each loss by 13 or more points, for the first time since 1976.
"I take full responsibly for that," Reid said after his first defeat at FedEx Field since 2008 and his sixth loss in a row overall. "It's my fault that's the way ...
BEST OF MAXIM
The remainder of the 2012 Philadelphia Eagles season should be all about whether or not Nick Foles is the future of this franchise. Assuming he plays for the rest of the season, there are some things we can look for in order to determine if he is, in fact, the future.
If there is to be anymore excitement generated by the Eagles, it will be due to the play of Foles and how it energizes...
THE BELL TOLLS FOR THEE
Three veteran Eagles players told a Philadelphia newspaper that they believe it's only a matter of time before the team cuts loose coach Andy Reid.

We all know that football is a team sport and that to get a win, all phases of the game must come together to propel a group to victory. But come Sunday, it’s going to be all about the quarterbacks.
When the Philadelphia Eagles face the Washington Redskins at FedEx field on Sunday afternoon...
Will Nick Foles be able to perform with the weight of the Eagles franchise on his back?
Michael Vick is still feeling the effects of a substantial concussion, and will not be ready for Sunday, and may not be ready to play for quite some time. That leaves the Philadelphia Eagles at 3-6 with their rookie QB Nick Foles set to take over the reins.
I’m sure Foles will try to say something...
Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback Nick Foles was very unimpressive during today’s loss to the Redskins. The good news is that Michael Vick might be back next week.
According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, the Eagles overstated Vick’s condition in order to give themselves an excuse to start Foles for the remainder of the season if he played well.
The problem is that...
Marcus Vick may be criticizing the Philadelphia Eagles again on Twitter, only this time he made more of an effort to mask his insult. Philadelphia’s record fell to 3-7 on Sunday at the hands of the Washington Redskins with Michael Vick sitting on the sidelines. As a result, Andy Reid’s seat is hotter than ever. Reid has had to answer questions about whether or not he feels he...
With the Eagles playing at their worst in a long time, fans really need something to make them laugh…and when I say laugh I mean at how stupid this Andy Reid Parody is. A group that goes by: FROMSTART2FILM, decided to make a parody of Andy Reid, called “We will never win with Andy”. That’s…
After the Eagles got spanked by the New Orleans Saints on “Monday Night Football” last month, Marcus Vick tweeted “Please trade my brother. We requesting out of Philly!!!! Please please please……” Shortly after, Michael said he had a “serious heart-to-heart conversation” with Marcus in which he told his brother to stop being a twit on…
Apparently Andy Reid was telling the truth when he said that Michael Vick’s concussion was significant.
The Eagles’ quarterback is experiencing some pretty shocking side effects from his latest concussion. Vick “still can’t drive a car due to balance issues, sleeps all day, can’t sleep at night” and he is “lethargic, nauseous, can’t sit in meetings and sensitive...
Hello, Donovan, It's Me
As we wind down the 14-year cavalcade of whimsy that has been the Andy Reid Era (and I'm sorry, National Media Geishas, but having one of the five worst teams in the league and not winning a playoff game in five years is, in fact, cause for extreme guaranteed dismissal), I was struck, especially in today's train wreck, by one thought.Have we underestimated...
