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 seems to believe now is the time to find out about Shaggy.
I wish Shaggy well..
Coach Andy Reid announced Monday that Vick sustained a "pretty significant concussion" in the second quarter of a 38-23 loss to Dallas. Vick still had a headache as of Monday afternoon and will not practice when the team reconvenes at the NovaCare Complex on Wednesday.
Unless Vick is able to make a remarkable recovery, rookie Nick Foles will make his first career start at Washington next Sunday. If he does, Foles would become the first Eagles rookie quarterback to start a r...

As the Washington Redskins (3-6) prepare to face the Philadelphia Eagles (3-6) for week 11 action, the question all week is going to be whether they will be going up against turnover prone Michael Vick or the rookie who would be getting his first career start in Nick Foles. All eyes will be on the Philly practice reports this week. Michael Vick exited last night’s loss against...

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...
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the Eagles are planning to start Nick Foles in Week 11. Barring a miracle turnaround from Michael Vick (concussion), Foles will make his first career start against the Redskins. Foles was already slated to take all the first-team reps in Wednesday’s practice, while Vick’s “significant” concussion is widely expected to sideline him for weeks...
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...
The Washington Redskins aren’t taking Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback Nick Foles lightly, Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall said Wednesday.
“This kid is in this league for a reason,” Hall said in the locker room at Redskins Park. “He’s waiting for his chance to get out there and play. It just so happens to come against us…. Our coaches coached him in the Senior...
NewsYou got a glimpse of the Eagles future with Nick Foles taking over for an injured Michael Vick. The Birds offense started off the game playing well, but in the end they lost to the Cowboys 38-23. The Eagles surrendered 21 points via a punt return, interception return and a fumble recovery for scores.
It wasn’t [...](Read more...)
The Philadelphia Eagles are enduring yet another disappointing season and with their loss Sunday to the Dallas Cowboys, the 3-6 Eagles are poised for some major changes next season. At this point, you have to figure that head coach Andy Reid is as good as gone, but will Michael Vick follow Reid out of town? Vick is slated for a $16 million dollar salary next season, but only $3 million...
Michael Vick benching rumors swilled for weeks. While Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid could not pull the plug on Vick, for fear of losing his own job, the decision was made for him Sunday. Vick was knocked out of the Eagles game against the Dallas Cowboys after suffering a concussion.
Prior to the concussion Vick had been a turn over machine for the Eagles who have now lost...

Eagles QB Michael Vick, who was knocked out of last Sunday's loss to the Cowboys with a concussion is very unlikely to play against the Redskins this Sunday. Rookie QB Nick Foles, a third round draft pick, gets about as welcome an introduction to the NFL as you can get -- Washington's 30th-ranked pass defense.
Injured WR Pierre...

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...
The sand is beginning to run out in the hourglass that has been the season for the Philadelphia Eagles. Their season continued to head downward with a 38-23 loss at home to the Dallas Cowboys.
Andy Reid’s team has now lost five straight games and their record on the season dropped to 3-6. While it doesn’t eliminate the Eagles from the playoff race just yet, it...
The N.F.L. isn’t much safer is it? Roger Goodell was worried about how the league was going to address player safety in 2012 and stop the concussions. Well, in week 10 we have seen three star quarterbacks taken out of the games due to suffering Concussions. Michael Vick looked to hit his head on the turf and Smith looked to take a hit to the head and of course if you were watching...
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...
With the fantasy football regular season coming to a close, its time to look to the future. Whether you have a playoff spot locked in, or have only won one game this season, dynasty leagues never sleep and each owner should constantly be looking to improve their teams all year long. Here are a few names to target for the future.
