For Eagles, Foles Not the Answer Either
There’s only so many things that a head coach can change about his team before he has to go, and the Philadelphia Eagles look like they’ve hit that point. The men from the City of Brotherly Love have lost six games in a row and now have failed to cover five in a row.
They have changed defensive coordinators and have changed quarterbacks. There’s just nothing left to change going into this week’s game against the Carolina Panthers.
So that means that Head Coach Andy Reid, a dead man walking right now, is going to have to trot QB Nick Foles out there on Monday Night Football regardless of whether he wants to or not. The fans in Philadelphia were clamoring for Foles to be starting over QB Michael Vick a few weeks ago, but now that Vick is hurt, Foles has no choice but to be under center.
It looks as though Reid knew what he was talking about. Foles threw for 204 yards and two picks without getting a TD on the board against the W...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
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.
Making his first NFL start, Nick Foles completed 21-of-46 passes for 204 yards and two interceptions at the Redskins in Week 11. It turns out Michael Vick wasn’t the problem after all. The Eagles were an embarrassing mess on Sunday. It can’t all be pinned on the rookie signal caller, but he certainly didn’t help matters. Showing shoddy footwork, Foles completed just 45.6 percent...
The Philadelphia Eagles said that the injury suffered by quarterback Michael Vick was “significant,” following his concussion that took place in last week’s loss. It now appears as if that designation was exaggerated by the Eagles, simply to make things look better in case Nick Foles had a big game on Sunday against the Washington Redskins.
If Foles had come in and played a...
When Michael Vick left last week's game with injury, rookie quarterback Nick Foles stepped in and almost sealed the deal for the Eagles against the Cowboys.Although he did not have the best numbers, he did show off his arm strength and natural ability as a passer. In what would turn out to be a rough outing for Foles and company, the Eagles dropped another big game against the...
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...
LANDOVER, Md. - Washington had lost eight straight games to rookie quarterbacks over seven seasons before Sunday, and Philadelphia had jumped ahead of the Redskins by wide margins the past two years at FedEx Field. However, those Redskins teams didn't have Robert Griffin III. Washington's rookie quarterback led the Redskins to a surprisingly easy 31-6 victory over the visiting...
Nick Foles showed up to Eagles headquarters this week in UGGs, earning the ridicule of LeSean McCoy and possibly instilling hope in the most deluded Iggles fans that he’s the next coming of Troll Brady. I would say that Foles starting spoils what would have been an intriguing match-up between Michael Vick and RGIII, but that viewpoint is informed by a preseason perspective of Vick...
NewsThe Eagles were totally embarrassed by a bad Washington Redskins team. Getting beaten 31-6 by such a bad team means, the Eagles team right now can’t be considered a legitimate NFL football team.
I know Reid and Mornhinweg were hoping Nick Foles would be able to help get the offense going against a mediocre at best [...](Read more...)
The dream is over for now...the Andy Reid era has definitely run its course...
And for those of you who held out hope that Nick Foles might be the next Dan Marino or Joe Flacco..."fagetaboudit"....
The Eagles (3-7) are toast going through the motions now. Foles is terrible. Mike Vick is virtually finished as a professional athlete due to horrendous concussion...
The Eagles were anything but a picture of confidence as they prepared to walk onto FedEx Field on Sunday. Image via the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Philadelphia Eagles may not win another game in 2012.
It’s not a statement made to be alarmist. It’s one that may well be the reality. I’ll still be watching/suffering through ever single game. But there are no longer any expectations...
Many Philadelphia Eagles fans have been clamoring for rookie QB Nick Foles to start a game in place of veteran QB Michael Vick. Those fans got their wish on Sunday and the results were disastrous. The Eagles were defeated by their divisional opponent, the Washington Redskins 31-6 on Sunday afternoon and the question now needs to be asked- will head coach Andy Reid last through...
We Can Do Better Than This.
Next Monday night, the 2-8 Panthers come to town to face the 3-7 Eagles, in what is very likely to be the last home night game (please, Lord, some small favors is all that we ask) in front of a true national audience for several years. The Panthers have no road fans to speak of, we are assured that there will be no Nick Foles Uprising to distract anyone...
Last week: 21 (-6)
The Phillies have won more recently than the Eagles. The Eagles’ 3 wins this season have come by a combined 4 points. They’ve now lost 6 games in a row and appear to have completely quit on Andy Reid. Last week I said that Andy Reid be brought back if Foles impressed, but Foles did the exact opposite of impressing last week, going 21 of 46 for 204...
