***Update***

From what I'm hearing, it is extremely unlikely the #Eagles will trade Nick Foles now that Michael Vick has been named the starting QB.

They do have Barkley now so trading Foles shouldn't be completely out of the question.

Vick is 18-16 as a starter during his time with the Eagles.

horrible choice, vick offers the franchise nothing


I am far from a Vick fan, but what QB offers the franchise more than him.

Please dont say Nick Foles, who has become laughably overrated. NOT SAYING HE ISNT A GOOD BACKUP, but he has absolutely not shown anything special in terms of being a starting QB.

The value from starting Foles would be figuring out how good he is, whether or not he can be a good starter. He played better than Vick last season when everything sucked, who knows how he'd play on a coherent, functional team.

Basically, I see this as a 7 or 8 win team with Vick, and a 6 or 7 win team with Foles. So, yes, Vick makes more sense from a win-now perspective, which is how every team should feel at this point in the year, but I'm not convinced that Vick is better for the franchise long-term.

Foles and barkley are at least young. playing them you can see what you have in them. if it isn't anything you go and get a new qb. Vick playing yu have to get a qb no matter what but still need to find out about foles and barkley.


A 34 year old FA qb at the end of the year offers us nothing. Like short of his winning the superbowl(with our defense no change) he doesnt bring the frnachise anything except a reduced change at perhaps getting the franchise qb we long for.


I mean if Nick Foles started and did well and we won that's good for the franchise. Michael will set us back with each win.

We don't long for him nor consider him a franchise QB.

So why would anyone be clamoring for Marky Mark's vastly inferior replacement at USC to play?
