First up is the thought from Philly Mag’s Tim McManus that Nick Foles is not only battling Michael Vick the player, but also Vick “the legend.” Apparently, some key players on the Eagles’ offense grew up idolizing Vick and now they’re playing with him.  Though they’re trying to say the right things to the media for the most part as far as the QB competition goes, they make just naturally gravitate towards Vick simply because they saw him as a star when they were younger… “I joke with Mike all the time about in high school, my whole team had his cleats when he was playing in the NFL,” LeSean McCoy said back in 2010 following a comeback win over the Texans. “Now I’m in the same huddle with him, locker room with him, joking with him, texting him, callin
