Found August 12, 2013 on Chicks in the Huddle:
Eagles 22 – Patriots 31 Regardless of who you’re rooting for in the QB competition, both Vick and Foles looked sharp in their first outings of the 2013 season. Vick opened with a quick “looks like the Eagles we know & love” TD drive that featured a long pass to my boy Jason Avant and a beautiful TD to DeSean (–>) that gives me hope that we’ll see the return of 2009 DeSean rather than 2011 DeSean. Foles got off to a rough start with the strip sack, but came back strong with efficient TD drive of his own, capped off with a nice short pass to Bryce Brown. Matt Barkley, well, looks like a rookie. Nothing to see here (yet). Move along. Of course new HC Chip Kelly didn’t open up the playbook, but we did see quite a bit of his no huddle hand signal style. I’m wondering/hoping that that will be a major benefit in some of the noisier enemy stadiums later this season. It’s possible special teams won’t be the typical disaster this year. Well, as long as Jon Dorenbos’s concussion isn’t too
