Categories: BREAKING NEWS Eagles NewsTags: Andy ReidNick FolesPhiladelphia EaglesFoles Keeps Making Strides In his fourth start of his career, Nick Foles made a strong case to be the Eagles’ starting quarterback in 2013. Foles was spectacular, putting up 381 yards, two passing touchdowns, and one rushing touchdown with no interceptions as he lead the Eagles on a come-from-behind victory, finishing the game with a touchdown [...](Read more...)

Nick Foles is Impressing, But a Tough Test Looms Against the Bengals

Photo: David Maialetti Philadelphia Eagles rookie QB Nick Foles is certainly impressing everyone from fans, to teammates, to coaches.  He looked like a poised veteran when he threw the game-winning touchdown pass to Jeremy Maclin as time expired. Wait, did I say “game-winning?”  As in, the Eagles won?  Wholly crap, that’s right, they did!  For the first time since September...

Foles Gold or Foles-mania...I'm still not sure on which way this goes...

Maybe it's the fluttering downfield passes which should have been intercepted... maybe it's the zoned-out expression on his face...maybe it's the inevitable historic references to Mike Boryla and Bobby Hoying, Eagles rookie QB's of the past who had brief encounters with initial success, then flamed out... I don't know. Maybe Nick "Shaggy" Foles is...

Eagles Come Back For Victory, As Foles Passes Another Test

Categories: BREAKING NEWS Eagles General News NewsTags: Brent CelekBryce BrownJeremy MaclinThis was an up and down affair between the Eagles and the Bucs, with the Birds winning on the game’s last play.  It was a fun game after a very slow start/ Rookie quarterback Nick Foles showed tremendous composure with the game on the line in the win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers....

Eagles receiver Jason Avant has incredible one-handed catch (Video)

Philadelphia Eagles receiver Jason Avant had an absolutely incredible one-handed catch during the second quarter of Sunday's NFL game at Raymond James Stadium against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The pass from quarterback Nick Foles appeared to be overthrown but Avant managed to leap up and haul it in with his right end while landing in bounds for a 20-yard reception. Avant...

Nick Foles and fantasy subterfuge

Did you watch the Philly-Tampa Bay game today? It was a rough game to watch if you were an Eagles fan. Hell, it was just a rough game to watch. The magic that running back Bryce Brown had been weaving in the previous two weeks just wasn’t in the cards against a Bucs defense that [...]

Nick Foles Stakes Claim as Eagles’ Quarterback of the Future With Epic Late-Game Comeback

This season has become something of a nightmare for Andy Reid and the Philadelphia Eagles. But they may have finally found a silver lining. With so many key pieces already in place and a full year of coexistence behind them, the Eagles’ expectations were sky high. But the results have been anything but. With a 4-9 record and no hopes at a playoff berth for a second straight season...

Livefyre In-Game report---Eagles vs. Bucs at Tampa...

One of the keys of the game I'll be watching is whether or not the Eagles will take the guvna' off Nick Foles' throwing arm. Tampa Bay's secondary is not known this year for very good coverage. So when "Shaggy" starts out in that run-base personnel package, and the Bucs start lining up 8 or 9 guys in the box, will he get the green light to audible...

Bucs focus on executing after difficult loss

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- The fading Tampa Bay Buccaneers talk about needing to make more plays. Coach Greg Schiano just wants them to concentrate on doing their jobs. The coach rejected the notion Monday that the Bucs (6-7) failed to protect a fourth-quarter lead for the fourth time this season because they did not make enough plays down the stretch of a last-second 23-21 loss to rookie...

NFL Week 14 thoughts & recap

Let’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from Week 14 in the National Football League! How about the Indianapolis Colts getting 9 wins this season!? Could they pull a 2009 New York Jets in the playoffs and do well while being led by a rookie QB?

Eagles 23, Tampa Bay 21... comfort food for Birds fans as Foles and Avant shine...

Nice to report a last-second come-from-behind victory for the Eagles...losing eight in a row was starting to wear on me...not to mention the players themselves. I'm still not sure this road win was a turning point as far as the 2013 season is concerned... but it sure made 2012 a whole lot more digestible.         Jason Avant, the 7th-year WR...

Eagles beat Bucs on final play

TAMPA, Fla. -- The Philadelphia Eagles scored two touchdowns in the final four minutes -- the last on a one-yard Nick Foles pass to Jeremy Maclin as time expired -- to beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 23-21 at Raymond James Stadium on Sunday. The Eagles converted a fourth-and-5 on a 22-yard pass from Foles to Jason Avant with 16 seconds remaining. On the final play, a sprint out pass...

Bucs comeback wasn’t enough in loss to Eagles

A lackluster performance by the Buccaneers’ offense in the first half proved to be too much to overcome as they fell to the Philadelphia Eagles 23-21 Sunday afternoon. The Buccaneers entered the second half down 10-0 before finally catching a break in the third quarter when Eagles’ returner Damaris Johnson muffed the punt inside the 10 yard line, allowing the Bucs to recover...

Any options left for Michael Vick?

The Philadelphia Eagles have turned the quarterback position over to rookie Nick Foles for the rest of the season which leads everyone to believe one thing: Michael Vick’s days are numbered in Philly. If that is true then we will find out soon if Vick still has a future as a starting quarterback in the NFL. More than likely Vick will be playing for a new team by the start of next...
