I’ll never fumble this Juan…
The disdain of all fantasy owners is the amount of touches that LeSean McCoy gets. We all see what he is capable of when he gets the ball in his hands. We will see an increase in touches with Nick Foles behind center. Maybe not.
OC Marty Mornhinweg: “I think LeSean is eighth in carries and fourth in total touches; I don’t think there’s a problem there. Every game is different. You have to dig into every game. And usually the ball carriers a few more carries when you’re ahead in the four minute and toward the end of the game.”
The Eagles staff is content on using the forward pass as means to getting the ball down the field. I still think McCoy will be used more than he was with Vick, but it won’t be a huge uptick in touches.

The Philadelphia Eagles have two highly touted corners in Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie whose futures with the team are uncertain after this season.
Rodgers-Cromartie is set to become a free agent. However, making a deal with him or any other player is not a priority for the Birds at the moment. With a 3-6 record and preparing to start a rookie quarterback on Sunday...
The remainder of the 2012 Philadelphia Eagles season should be all about whether or not Nick Foles is the future of this franchise. Assuming he plays for the rest of the season, there are some things we can look for in order to determine if he is, in fact, the future.
If there is to be anymore excitement generated by the Eagles, it will be due to the play of Foles and how it energizes...
Michael Vick isn’t expected to play tackle football this weekend, as the Eagles turn to Nick Foles while Vick attempts to recover from a concussion.
It’s uncertain when — or even if — Vick will return this season. If he doesn’t, there’s a chance that he doesn’t even return to Philadelphia. He’s shown flashes of brilliance at times in Philly, but the overall body of...
Nick Foles practiced with the first team this week and stuck around for extra film work.
He's ready to make his first career NFL start for the Philadelphia Eagles.
All he needs now is to officially and publicly be named the starter. The Eagles again practiced another day without injured quarterback Michael Vick. The veteran has sat out since suffering a severe concussion in...
Will Nick Foles be able to perform with the weight of the Eagles franchise on his back?
Michael Vick is still feeling the effects of a substantial concussion, and will not be ready for Sunday, and may not be ready to play for quite some time. That leaves the Philadelphia Eagles at 3-6 with their rookie QB Nick Foles set to take over the reins.
I’m sure Foles will try to say something...
Offensive lineman Jake Scott was signed by the Eagles on Monday. He could see action less than a week later.
Danny Watkins (ankle) practiced all week but is officially questionable for Sundays game in Washington.
Well, what you end up getting with the [high-ankle sprain], you get tweaks in there and it hinders your lateral mobility, said Andy Reid. I was proud of him...
Nnamdi Asomugha might be the worst tackler on the field, but in this Funny or Die skit he shows us he’s the best off of it as he takes down the Nigerian prince.
This is actually pretty funny. Once the Eagles cut him he can spend more time focusing on Hollywood.
All eyes will be on Nick Foles come Sunday at FedEx Field. Photo via New York Daily News.
We all know that football is a team sport and that to get a win, all phases of the game must come together to propel a group to victory. But come Sunday, it’s going to be all about the quarterbacks.
When the Philadelphia Eagles face the Washington Redskins at FedEx field on Sunday afternoon...
When Michael Vick got concussed in the second quarter of the Eagles’ 38-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, first it is a real shame for such a gamer.
It might be a blessing in disguise for Philadelphia Eagle fans.
Not that Nick Foles will definitely be a World Beater, but the dude is 6’6”, 243 pounds, compared to Michael Vicks’ 6-0, 215 pounds.
Foles in size and stature is closest...
It comes as no surprise the Philadelphia Eagles will start rookie quarterback Nick Foles on Sunday when they tangle with the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field.
Foles takes over for Michael Vick, who will not play after suffering a concussion last week in a loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported Vick will not play.
Eagles coach Andy Reid said it was...
Philadelphia Eagles fans may need something extra to watch for during the final seven games beside the actual outcome. The Eagles have been insanely good at finding new ways to lose games. This is frustrating for a loyal fan base of a team riding a five game losing streak. The Eagles playoff hopes have all but been flushed down the tube. Their only real hope is a miracle seven...
