Found August 23, 2012 on Juan Elway:

Andy Reid made Kolb look like a real QB Juan…

Nick Foles has climbed the Eagles depth chart and looks like the #2 over incumbent Mike Kafka.  In his preseason Foles has completed 24/38 passes for 361 yards, 4 touchdowns, and an interception.  He has shown great pocket presence and arm strength as he fit some tough throws into tight windows.

We all know that Vick is prone to getting nicked up and missing time.  In less than 10 drop backs this preseason, he has been knocked out of 2 games. If Andy Reid can make Kevin Kolb and AJ Feeley fantasy worthy, then he can make Nick Foles too. The word guru is thrown around a lot, but in his case, Reid is a true QB guru. Foles is a guy to keep on eye on for waiver wire potential in redraft leagues and a guy in dynasty that could have some value in the upcoming years. S/O to @sbnation for the GIF.

Is Nick Foles the Future for Eagles? History Suggests Otherwise

Elise Amedola / The Associated Press If I didn’t know any better, I’d swear that Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles was already a five-time pro-bowler and Super Bowl MVP.

He has completed 24...

Nick Foles will start for Eagles on Friday

Nick Foles will start Friday’s preseason game for the Philadelphia Eagles, filling in for Michael Vick. While Vick appears to be fine, the Eagles simply don’t want to risk any further injury in the final two preseason games.

Could Nick Foles Be a Better Option Than Michael Vick for the Philadelphia Eagles This Season?

Michael Vick is the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles. Let’s just get that one out of the way right now.

Andy Reid: Mike Vick will start for the Eagles in Week 1

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mike Vick may be nursing sore ribs and have only taken twelve snaps this preseason, but that won’t prevent him from being the team’s starter in Week 1 against the Browns. After an x-ray revealed no fracture, a CT scan and MRI results also showed no long-term damage to Vick’s ribs. According to head coach Andy Reid on Wednesday, Vick has bruised...

Cards back at square one in QB competition

Thursdays game in Tennessee was supposed to be a coronation for Cardinals quarterback John Skelton. He had played less poorly than Kevin Kolb through three preseason games, earning him the lesser-of-two-evils tag in this infamous and inglorious race for the starting role. But the sad reality of Arizonas quarterback competition is that with one touchdown drive, you can regain the...
