If you look in the dictionary, you’re not going to find a definition for franchise quarterback. However, it’s a term we talk about all the time. Although there’s no official definition for franchise quarterback, everyone knows what it is and everyone wants one. Peyton Manning. Tom Brady. Aaron Rodgers. There’s no question that these guys […]

It feels like forever since the Eagles and Redskins played on Monday Night Football to open the season, doesn’t it? It generated a ton of excitement. We saw just how high-powered the offense could be and the first half defense led us to believe that maybe the unit wasn’t as bad as we had originally […]

We knew that it would pretty much be impossible for Nick Foles to match his performance against Oakland. You can’t expect a guy to throw for seven touchdowns every game. You can’t really expect a guy to ever throw seven touchdowns in a game. However, Foles put together another solid performance on the road in […]

Reflecting on Sunday’s game against the Raiders, it’s hard to think about anything else besides the outing Nick Foles had. It’s understandable as you don’t see guys throwing for seven touchdowns in one game all that often. You also didn’t expect it out of Foles after his last start against the Cowboys. However, I like […]

After two weeks of offensive struggles, Nick Foles came to the rescue in a career outing, throwing for seven touchdown passes which ties an NFL record. The Eagles improved to 4-5 with a 49-20 victory over the Raiders. The offense looked good right out of the gate this week. On their first drive, they showed […]

Nick Foles will make a return to the starting lineup come Sunday in Oakland, allowing the Eagles to avoid starting their third different quarterback of the season. He will look to redeem himself after a very poor showing against the Cowboys. After being beat out for the starting job in Training Camp, Foles was able […]

Who would have thought that through the midpoint of the season, we’d be complaining about the Eagles offense and praising the defense? Not me, but that’s just where we are right now. The Eagles hit the halfway point with a record of 3-5 and a ton of questions about their offense. Although the Eagles’ ground […]

What a spectacle the NFC East has been so far this season. Two teams will enter Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday with a 3-3 record and the winner will take over sole control of the division. The first six weeks have been ugly for all the teams in the division, but it’s time to look […]

The Eagles have had a number of problems this season. However, they finally have a good problem. They have two very capable quarterbacks who can win football games. The only issue is which quarterback to go with moving forward. It used to be an unwritten rule that you couldn’t lose your job due to injury. […]

Michael Vick and Nick Foles entered Eagles Training Camp this year to compete for the starting quarterback position. Although it seemed like both quarterbacks struggled to pick up the new system at first, Vick began to pull away from Foles and won the job. This could potentially be Foles’ opportunity to get some revenge. During […]

Going into Sunday’s game at Tampa Bay, there were two things I wanted to see out of the Eagles. First and foremost was improvement out of Nick Foles. The second was improvement from the defense. Win or lose, I didn’t care too much as long as I saw those things. Let’s start with Foles. Week […]

The saying “the season is over” is a common one in football. It comes out when a key player goes down or when a team knows they have little to no playoff hopes. I think “the season is over” is a common mindset among Eagles fans right now. However, there are still six games remaining. […]

For the second preseason game in a row, Michael Vick’s night was ended after six snaps. This time around, Vick took a hard shot to the ribs while trying to scramble away from a defender. The good news is that x-rays turned out to be negative so it looks like he’ll only be experiencing some […]
