If you’ve heard anything about the Philadelphia Eagles in the past 24 hours, it was probably about their current quarterback situation. Michael Vick’s injured thumb will not keep him from missing any practice time or preseason action, however, Mike Kafka, his backup, suffered a fracture on his non-throwing hand in the preseason opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
This injury could prove to be costly for Kafka, as it allows rookie Nick Foles to take over as second-string quarterback and gives Trent Edwards the restored hope of hanging onto the roster.
Reports from spring and summer practices noted that Kafka looked stronger, sharper and ready to lead in case Vick were to miss any time, but his lone quarter of preseason action suggests otherwise.
The third-year pro looked skittish in the pocket and lacked composure when faced with pressure. His second-quarter interception was a perfect example of how not to play quarterback in the NFL.
Now that he ha...

Eagles backup quarterback Mike Kafka suffered a broken left hand in the Eagles 24-23 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Kafka played through the injury during the game, but will now be sidelined as his left hand is heavily wrapped. Kafka throws with his right hand, so he is still participating in a limited role during practice. Today he threw during individual drills and 7...

There were a few temporary or possibly permanent depth chart moves by the Philadelphia Eagles at training camp over this past weekend.
A starting player was demoted to second string, a second-stringer may have been bumped to the third team and a third-stringer is now running with the twos.
Okay, first things first...
Though nobody knew it at...
Last night in the Eagles first preseason game their starting QB Michael Vick bashed his throwing hand off an offensive lineman's helmet on the follow through of an incomplete pass. It looked bad at that moment but fortunately X-Rays came back negative and Vick is expected to practice as early as Saturday.

The other day in my Facebook stream (what, you think you get all of my content? I've got layers, man, layers), I mentioned that I was at the Eagles-Steelers preseason game. A guy that I haven't seen in 15 years then felt it was necessary to wish that someone would break Michael Vick's knees; this someone is, in fact, an Eagles fan, but "on strike" until Vick...
Have you ever wondered what Philadelphia’s best offensive threat looks like mashed together? Take a look at Desean Vick in a Philadelphia Eagles Press Conference!
The Eagles won its first preseason game over the Steelers, 24-23, on Alex Henery’s kick on Thursday night at the Linc.
Yet, only the starters played the first quarter, Michael Vick early into the second quarter, but here is a few observations.
Too early to judge Vick on two series, yet he was largely ineffective until he got his thumb hurt early in the second quarter.
The Eagle dynasty is the odds on favorite to prevail in a division that also boasts the Super Bowl Champion G-men, just ask Michael Vick. The NFC East has always been a brutal division and many would say the toughest, proudest division in football and with the arrival of Robert Griffin III it's gotten even more interesting and packed with fantasy football talent.
