Ray Didinger is a man that needs no introduction, particularly not to Philadelphia Eagles fans. He literally wrote the book on the franchise’s history, co-authoring the Eagles Encyclopedia in 2005. His books and writing for the Philadelphia Bulletin and Daily News landed him in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He has won multiple Emmy awards for his role in writing and producing documentaries for NFL Films.
His insights can be read via the popular “Ray’s Replies” column on CSNPhilly and we all look forward to his analysis after each and every Eagles game on “Post Game Live.”
I met with Mr. Didinger on Saturday after his WIP radio show with Glen Macnow to talk about everything Eagles. As our meeting was the day following Philadelphia’s third preseason game against the Cleveland Browns, Didinger spoke about his impressions of the game, Nick Foles mania, Mike Kafka’s future with Philadelphia, the rookie who has impressed him most and his assessment of DeMeco Ryans.

When the Philadelphia Eagles selected Nick Foles in the third round of the 2012 NFL draft the logic was unclear. Was the Arizona QB brought in to be developed for future trade potential or did the Eagles intend to bring him along in hopes that he would eventually emerge as their future starting quarterback? During the NFL preseason Foles let his play on the field answer that question...
Rookie quarterback Nick Foles had another impressive outing Friday night, leading the Eagles to a 27-10 preseason win over the Cleveland Browns. Foles completed 12 passes for 146 yards and two touchdowns in his first start, filling in for the injured Michael Vick. These numbers are consistent with the numbers he has put up in every game so far in the preseason, which has stirred...
Philadelphia Eagles’ new quarterback, Nick Foles, has shown his potential to be one of the NFL’s rising stars this year, after impressing during the team’s preseason.
The third-round draft pick was not expected to turn many heads during Philadelphia training, but has impressed so much he may even find himself direct backup to Michael Vick once the regular season starts this...
Nick Foles has impressed Eagles fans and coaches.
The Eagles last preseason game against the Jets will not feature many, if any stars and normally I avoid these games. But this year is different from most years as we could be seeing the future of the Eagles at quarterback. After seeing VERY little of Michael Vick this preseason due to injuries, Nick Foles has seen far more time behind...
In Part I of Philly Sports Muse’s interview with Pro Football Hall of Fame writer Ray Didinger, he talked about his impressions of Nick Foles, why he is impressed with Mychal Kendricks and shared his concerns about DeMeco Ryans.
In the second part of the conversation, Didinger shares his observations on the shuffle at the left tackle position, why he’s disappointed in Nnamdi...
After another solid performance on Friday night (12-of-19 for 146 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT), Eagles rookie quarterback Nick Foles has to be considered the handcuff for starter Michael Vick.Fantasy Spin:With the oft-injured Vick already nursing bruised ribs, it's a must for anyone selecting Vick to also draft Foles. Foles is 36-of-57 for 509 yards and six TDs this preseason.
According to Jeff McClane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Eagles head coach Andy Reid has indicated that rookie quarterback Nick Foles is the top back up behind Michael Vick.
Reid: Foles is top backup to Vick.

There’s no doubt that Foles has more impressive than Mike Kafka in the preseason and that he should be Vick’s back up...

One of the biggest problems with last year’s “Dream Team” was the inconsistent play at the linebacker position. You can blame it on the personnel, the first year defensive coordinator, or the shortened Training Camp due to the lockout. At the end of the day, there was just no consistency at the position.
Coming into the 2012 season, things seemed to look much better. The...
