For all of his accomplishments, Nick Foles is constantly reminded about the first time the Eagles played the Cowboys.
Who knew this was going to happen? Not many. Back in July, there were some that had suspicions the Eagles could be a 7- or 8-win team, but no one was predicting playoffs for a team that needed time to coalesce and heal in recovering from a feckless 4-12 season last year.
As the Eagles have battled back to even their record of wins and losses, the discussion on what to do with the quarterback situation has evolved from locking in on a top 2014 NFL Draft prospect to the idea that the team can realistically move forward with Nick Foles leading the offense. Much of the decision-making for the offseason plans will be determined by what Foles does for the rest of this season.
As Packers wide receiver came down with what was ruled reception in the Eagles 27-13 win on Sunday, replays clearly showed that he did not get both feet in bounds. Anyone who was watching in Philadelphia on television screamed the same thing, “throw the challenge flag!” The Eagles did not challenge the play, and thankfully went on to win the game.
A first place showdown with the Dallas Cowboys is looming, but the Eagles continue to field questions about their quarterback situation.
One day after holding an open practice at Lincoln Financial Field, the Eagles were back at the Novacare Complex on Sunday.
The Eagles will reportedly add Pat Shurmur to their coaching staff.
The Eagles will host the Cleveland Browns on Thursday at the Linc in their third preseason game, and the game will represent a return to the area for former Villanova safety Raymond Ventrone.
