As improbable as it sounds, the best quarterback on the field in Sunday’s game between the Packers and Eagles likely won’t be Aaron Rodgers or Michael Vick.
Mike Vick is still bothered by a hamstring injury that has been nagging him for the last month. The veteran quarterback was limited in practices early in the week but did get in a full practice on Friday. Even if his hamstring stops bothering by Sunday, it should be expected he will serve as nothing more than a back-up quarterback option to Nick Foles.
It was a memorable weekend in football, both on the college and professional scenes.
We’ve seen Nick Foles at his utmost worst just a few weeks ago. And on Sunday, after tossing an NFL-record tying seven touchdowns in the Eagles’ 49-20 thumping of the Oakland Raiders, we’ve also seen him at his incredible best.
Chip Kelly knows Nick Foles will be his starting quarterback on Sunday in Oakland. That’s all the information the coach will give about the future of the position.
Chip Kelly anounces that Nick Foles will start against the Raiders.
Chip Kelly says it’s a combination of “the little things” that caused Sunday’s offensive ineptness.
Michael Vick’s first pulled hamstring against the Giants cost him two weeks. This time, he lost most of the game.
The Eagles offensive woes of last week bled into this week, resulting in a 15-7 loss in a crossroads game.
What a disappointing offensive show the Birds put on at The Linc on Sunday. As some headlines said, it looked like Foles folded. As a result, Dallas leads the NFC East today with the Eagles second.
Michael Vick has been listed as probable and is expected to start when the Philadelphia Eagles host the New York Giants on Sunday.
Though Charles Barkley and Michael Vick played different sports, with different degrees of success in Philadelphia, they will both go down in Philadelphia sports history together in one particular category: lightning rods.
Almost everyone believes Michael Vick will start at quarterback for the Eagles on Sunday, but Chip Kelly isn’t ready to say it yet.
Many have said that the quarterback of the future for the Eagles is not currently on the roster. Nick Foles’ performance against the Cowboys may have driven that point home even further. The official odds agree with the public sentiment.
The Eagles and Giants will meet for the second time this month on Sunday, and both teams are in dire need of a victory.
