I can understand that Vick's play has been frustrating, but do you seriously think Nick Foles is going to give the Eagles a better chance to win than Vick?
Lose with him or without him, what's the difference? One, we know the result. The other, we don't. Vick has been ass as a quarterback after his first 8 games 2 years ago. Huge reason why their record is what it is now. He's figured out and the Eagles system with him is figured out.
Yeah, its not all on one player. Just extremely frustrated by all the turnovers. I really do like Vick and if he could just limit the turnovers/play smarter things would be fine.
Vick has never showed any signs of QB intelligence. He's not going to change.
It's just crazy....I'm not sure how long you've watched the Eagles but if you watched pre-McNabb then you'd remember that those were some DARK days. Our season was over by Week 5-6 like the Browns in modern day. I'm not ready to go back to that. I'm a proponent that if you make the playoffs, anything is possible and if they have a shot at that, then you put your best players on the field. By Week 12-13-14, if the Eagles are eliminated from the playoffs then sure, throw Foles in there and get him some time but until that point, you stick with your best players.
Yes, Vick's fumblitis is killing this team, costed them at least 6 today. But a section of the team getting away with little blame is the D-Line thats supposed to be one of the most feared in the league. Big Ben had all sorts of time with little to no pressure. No sacks today or last week. That's gotta change.
Rich Kotite 91-94: 36-28, 1-1 in playoffs.
Ray Rhodes: 20-12 first 2 years, 9-22-1 next 2. Yet 1-2 in playoffs.
Reid last 3 plus years: 31-21, 0-2 in playoffs.
What's the overwhelming difference? So while the 90s were so bad, they still made the playoffs 3 times and competed iin the toughest division in football that era.
People hold onto to 2001-2004 like it is recent history. That shit was almost 10 fucking years ago.
The first Eagles game I remember watching is the divisional playoff game when they lost to the Giants in January 2001. I'm sure I watched some before that, but I definitely lucked out. They got good once I was old enough to get into them.
That said, if Vick keeps making 2+ turnovers a game, and the games are as close as they've been, it'll be hard for me to stick by him. Totally agree on the D-line though. The Steelers don't have a great O-line, which makes it worse.
Worst game. And the biggest change that will come with Foles over Vick is play-calling, which is what needed to be changed the most. This team has scored over 20 points only once so far...without that talent.
