Nick Foles, you're up.
Foles will be the starting quarterback when the Philadelphia Eagles play their second preseason game against the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night. Michael Vick started last week's 31-22 to loss to New England and now it's Foles' turn to take the first snap.
The two quarterbacks have been alternating days starting out with the first team so coach Chip Kelly said last week Foles would go first this time because Vick opened the first game.
Vick was 4 of 5 for 94 yards, including a perfect 47-yard touchdown pass to DeSean Jackson in two series against the Patriots. Foles lost a fumble on his first series, but led the Eagles to a TD on his next one against New England backups.
''I need to go out there and execute the offense and put points on the board,'' Foles said. ''That's always been the ultimate goal. Just learn from the last one and move forward, just take these practices and get better. It's the same way...

With Former Eagles Coach Andy Reid out in Kansas City , and high scoring Head Coach from University of Oregon Chip Kelly taking over, you would think he would want to push the pace with a naturally fast team and look to push it as he did in College Football, Will all of those plays work? Of course not, but the speed they have in D.Jackson, Mike Vick, and Lesean Mccoy, you would think...
Eagles rookie offensive tackle Lane Johnson is 6-6, 310 pounds, and from Texas, so the fact that he would be this big burly guy is not surprising.
Johnson and his beautiful wife gave birth to a new baby boy named David Jace on Saturday.
Johnson released a wonderful photo of his newborn, and in the photo courtesy of Crossing Broad, you can see young David Jace is already following...
Eagles defensive end/linebacker Phillip Hunt underwent surgery to repair a partially torn ACL today, according to Adam Caplan.
Hunt is in his third season out of Houston and recorded only 8 tackles and 1 sack last season. He may not have made their final roster anyway.
We certainly hope Hunt rehabs and gets back on his feet next season.

The Philadelphia Eagles are set to take on the Carolina Panthers in Game 2 of preseason action. The starters, at least on offense, are scheduled to play the entire first half so we should get a better look at how this unit performs with Michael Vick under center as compared to Nick Foles. Obviously, watching the QBs will be first and foremost on everyone’s mind. However, here...
ESPN has parted ways with former Philadelphia Eagles lineman Hugh Douglas in the wake of his alleged confrontation with “Numbers Never Lie” co-host Michael Smith. “He no longer works for us effective today,” an ESPN spokesperson said Tuesday, according to SI.com’s Richard Deitsch. The news should not come as a shock to anyone after hearing […]
The curse of Donovan McNabb? Andy Reid waistline? T.O.?
Has to be something.
#Eagles announce that a 4th player has tore his ACL this pre-season for them, LB/DE Phillip Hunt.

It's not so much the Eagles won a preseason game against the Carolina Panthers, 14-9, but that all phases of the Birds' roster packages seem to have cleaned up a lot of lingering problems.
We saw improvement across the board--- offense (especially quarterback and line play), defense and special teams.
Vick was nearly flawless, Foles looked sharp and each player...
