LANDOVER, Md. - Washington had lost eight straight games to rookie quarterbacks over seven seasons before Sunday, and Philadelphia had jumped ahead of the Redskins by wide margins the past two years at FedEx Field. However, those Redskins teams didn't have Robert Griffin III. Washington's rookie quarterback led the Redskins to a surprisingly easy 31-6 victory over the visiting Eagles on Sunday. The Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback from Baylor threw a career-high four touchdown passes while completing all but one of his 15 attempts (to nine different targets) for 200 yards (a 158.3 passer rating) and added 84 yards on 12 carries. Griffin's first touchdown and Kai Forbath's field goal on the first half's final play followed takeaways by Washington's defense, which hadn't forced a turnover as the offense also struggled the previous two games. "Whenever your defense plays like that, it makes you feel like as an offense you don't have to pr...

For Eagles, Foles Not the Answer Either

For Eagles, Foles Not the Answer Either By SBRForum.com There’s only so many things that a head coach can change about his team before he has to go, and the Philadelphia Eagles look like they’ve hit that point. The men from the City of Brotherly Love have lost six games in a row and now have failed to cover five in a row. They have changed defensive coordinators and have changed...

Philadelphia Eagles Rookie QB Nick Foles: 8 Things We Need To Learn

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...

Week 11 Fantasy Ranks: A late week reminder; Foles can fill in

If you watched the Philadelphia Dallas game last game you saw your first bit of Nick Foles in regular season NFL action. The results were mixed, he made a few nice throws and more than a few rookie mistakes – but he certainly moved the ball, which is no small feat against the Cowboys pass defense; and he can do the same against the Redskins...

All eyes on the rookie quarterbacks as the Philadelphia Eagles prepare to face the Washington Redskins

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...

The Eagles looked horrible on Sunday, is it time to draft another QB?

Making his first NFL start, Nick Foles completed 21-of-46 passes for 204 yards and two interceptions at the Redskins in Week 11. It turns out Michael Vick wasn’t the problem after all. The Eagles were an embarrassing mess on Sunday. It can’t all be pinned on the rookie signal caller, but he certainly didn’t help matters. Showing shoddy footwork, Foles completed just 45.6 percent...

NFL Rumors: Did Philadelphia Eagles Exaggerate Michael Vick Significant Injury In Case Nick Foles Had Big Game?

The Philadelphia Eagles said that the injury suffered by quarterback Michael Vick was “significant,” following his concussion that took place in last week’s loss. It now appears as if that designation was exaggerated by the Eagles, simply to make things look better in case Nick Foles had a big game on Sunday against the Washington Redskins. If Foles had come in and played a...

Vick and Reid’s future rests on Nick Foles arm

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...

Andy Reid: Vick feels like he let the team down

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...

Will the Philadephia Eagles win another game in 2012?

The Eagles were anything but a picture of confidence as they prepared to walk onto FedEx Field on Sunday. Image via the Philadelphia Eagles. The Philadelphia Eagles may not win another game in 2012. It’s not a statement made to be alarmist. It’s one that may well be the reality. I’ll still be watching/suffering through ever single game. But there are no longer any expectations...

NFL Rumors: Philadelphia Eagles Andy Reid, can he survive the rest of the season?

Many Philadelphia Eagles fans have been clamoring for rookie QB Nick Foles to start a game in place of veteran QB Michael Vick.
