The Washington Redskins have been unbelievably bad against rookie quarterbacks. Historically bad. Eight-losses-in-a-row bad.
They are the only NFL team to lose eight straight against rookie QBs since at least 1950, according to STATS.
Enter Nick Foles, the third-round pick from Arizona who is all but certain to make his first NFL start for the Philadelphia Eagles against the Redskins on Sunday.
''We haven't had great success against young guys,'' Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall said. ''So if anybody in this locker room's not going out there treating this guy like he was an NFL starting quarterback, then they're crazy.''
The roll call of futility is mind-boggling. It began with a 25-22 loss to Vince Young and the Tennessee Titans on Oct. 15, 2006.
The Redskins have since lost to newbies Bruce Gradkowski (2006), Trent Edwards (2007), Joe Flacco (2008), Matthew Stafford (2009), Sam Bradford (2010), Cam Newton (2011) and Christian Ponde...
BEST OF MAXIM
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...
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...

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...
Rookie Nick Foles will start in place of Michael Vick at quarterback Sunday for the Philadelphia Eagles. Vick suffered what coach Andy Reid described as a "significant" concussion last week and was ruled out of Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins, according to multiple reports Friday. Vick hasn't practiced with the team this week. Foles, a third-round...
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...
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is still experiencing symptoms from last week’s concussion, including fogginess, headaches, fatigue and heavy eyes. He’s obviously out for Sunday’s game and Nick Foles will start in his place. Vick has been advised to spend the weekend in the dark. No video, no noise and no exercising. While he’s out of commission, Vick can’t...
1. Danario Alexander is a Near Must-Own in 12-Team Leagues
His knees probably don't have long before they start to flare up again, but until they do, Alexander should be owned in most formats now that he's emerged in San Diego. He played more snaps than any other Charger receiver against Tampa Bay on Sunday and, given the ineptitude of the players around him, it's an...
Michael Vick is not expected to start Sunday by anyone… but the Philadelphia Eagles have not confirmed anything. Vick remains at home resting following a concussion sustained in last weekends game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Nick Foles filled in at quarterback after Vick left the game. The rookie seeing his first game action was 22-for-32 for 219 yards and a touchdown. He also...
When Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick went down with a concussion this past Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys I’m sure there was a grouping of Redskins fans who let out a cheer. After all, in spite of his dismal play this season (serves him right for declaring the Eagles a dynasty before they had won anything) Vick is still one of those players who can take over a game...
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...
Your hopes and dreams are coming near a conclusion. Are you a fantasy football playoff team? Are you a spoiler? Do you really have no idea what you are?
