Foles, the Eagles' third-round pick out of the University of Arizona, replaced Vick early in the second quarter of Sunday's 38-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys after Vick was hit by Cowboys linebacker Ernie Sims. Vick fell backwards and hit his head on the ground, apparently causing the concussion. Foles did a decent job considering that he hadn't had any reps with the first-team offense since the preseason. He completed 22 of 32 passes for 219 yards and a touchdown. He also had an interception, which was returned 47 yards for a touchdown by Brandon Carr. "He did a nice job of keeping his eyes down the field," Reid said. "He was under pressure and made a couple of nice plays there. There are a couple of plays he'd like to have bac...

The Worst Thing That Could Possibly Happen for the Redskins in the Eagles Vs. Cowboys Happened

When Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick went down with a concussion this past Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys I’m sure there was a grouping of Redskins fans who let out a cheer. After all, in spite of his dismal play this season (serves him right for declaring the Eagles a dynasty before they had won anything) Vick is still one of those players who can take over a game...

Andy Reid’s ending becoming a sad affair

5 NFC Championship games. 1 Super Bowl appearance. 6 NFC East titles and 1 NFC Championship. 129 wins, 86 losses and 1 dreadful tie. The greatest era of Eagles football ever. It’s a record that most NFL coaches would kill for. In Philadelphia, it’s about to cost a man his job. This is a bitter end. Not the one that Andy Reid deserved. You can say what you want about the man,...

Cowboys Special Teams Player Gets Pants’d on Kick Off

Well, this is certainly one way to get yourself noticed. Before today, nobody knew who Erik Frampton was – today they all know him personally. I have to say, the Lingerie Football league pantsings are much better. For the record, the Cowboys smoked the Eagles with a flurry of special team/defensive touchdowns. Adios Andy Reid.
