Did Philadelphia Inquirer cartoonist Rob Tornoe perfectly capture the innermost thoughts of Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback Nick Foles? My guess is yes, but I suppose we’ll never know.

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...

Since Philadelphia Eagles rookie QB Nick Foles is slated to make his first career start this Sunday, and perhaps play the remainder of the 2012 season, I’ve had a few people bring up the David Carr debate as a reason not to let him play yet.
What do I mean by that? In case you didn’t know or need a memory refresher, David Carr was the No. 1 overall pick...
Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will miss Sunday's game vs. the Washington Redskins due to the effects of a concussion.
Rookie Nick Foles, who replaced Vick during the 38-23 loss to Dallas on Sunday, and who practiced with the first team all week, will get his first NFL start in a battle of 3-6 teams fighting to save their seasons.
Philadelphia head trainer Rick Burkholder...
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...
23-year-old Nick Foles now has the opportunity of a lifetime--- a starting QB gig in the NFL. It's an amazing development, considering previous QB#1 Mike Vick had taken a huge beating at the hands of opposing defensive pressures, but was not knocked out on a TKO until Sundays' tough loss against Dallas.
Now at 3-6, what do we have to lose? The Eagles' Brain Trust...

It was a very smart of Andy Reid to “rest” Michael Vick the rest of the way. He’s not making the playoffs, but he can still save his job if Nick Foles goes say 4-3. He can blame their slow start on Vick and his history developing quarterbacks will probably convince management to let Reid stick around and develop the promising young quarterback...
Actor Bradley Cooper plays Pat Solitano in his upcoming movie Silver Linings Playbook alongside Robert De Niro, who plays Cooper's obsessed Philadelphia Eagles father in the movie. Cooper said he and his father, who has since passed, were huge Eagles fans, which helped with his role in the movie.

This Given Sunday is examining the biggest injury questions before each week of the NFL season. Here are the top-five health-related storylines entering Week 11.
It turns out the belief when McFadden was injured on Nov. 4 was that he'd miss 2-4 weeks, which means he's a huge question mark for Sunday after missing practice to start the week. Expect...
Want to start out by apologizing for not writing a sleeper article the last 2 weeks. Conditions have prevented me from being able to do so, but now I’m back.
We are at a crucial part of the fantasy football season, and whether you are a playoff lock, trying to make a playoff push or playing spoiler it is your duty to try and win. On the final bye week we see the Vikings, Giants...
It's the battle of the NFC East's bottom teams for this matchup.Both teams showed a lot of promise at the beginning with Robert Griffin III leading the Redskins to a 2-2 record and Michael Vick leading the the Eagles to 3-1 record.However, a lot has changed since then as both teams currently stand at 3-6 and barely clinging to any hopes of making it to the playoffs.Come Sunday...
