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.

Michael Vick’s Next Destination (Buffalo, Perhaps?) Among Top Week 11 NFL Prop Bets (Photos)

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...

Eagles move closer toward starting the Foles era

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.

Another Eagles’ turnover: This time at quarterback

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...
