    If I were an Eagles fan, I'd be pretty excited to watch my offense this season. Not sure how good that team's going to be, but they should be fun to watch, one way or another.

    Their offense is going to be explosive as usual. Their defense on the other hand is going to be unbearable to watch.

    I wonder what the over/under is that he will play more than ten games?

    Never been a Vick fan never will be a Vick fan. Boy I would love to get my hands on Foles I think he can be a solid QB

    That quick offense can backfire too. If they get a bunch of quick 3 and outs, that already porous defense will be exhausted by the 2nd quarter.

    The Eagles clearly have the best backup QB in the league this year, which they will certainly need. Chances are Vick doesn't make it out of the MNF game against Orakpo and Co.

    I don't see the Eagles being very competitive this season even with Vick under center. (7-9 or 8-8) Vick has only played one full season since he's been inthe league (I think) and I don't see him holding up this season as well especially running the option. NFC East have some great defenses and I don't think they're going to be too kind for running QBs.

    I do believe that Vick is the better option at QB running Chip's system.

    I don't think so. What has Foles done to deserve that title.

    Who do you think has the best backup? Foles has been a starter, has really good mobility and seems to have command of the offense. He has played very well throughout the preseason and has reportedly done well in TC. He looks like a quality QB to me.

    Uhhh.. what?

    I don't think that's "clear" by any stretch of the word. Im certainly happier with Orten than Foles.

    PS.. how is this Cowboys news?

    Agreed. Its a boom or bust offense. In the NFL, when other teams have the same speed, I dont think it will work. Time will tell I suppose, but I see the Eagles giving up a lot of points, and not being able to keep pace.

    Who the heck is "Orten?" Tell you what, first learn how to spell his name and then we can talk about whether he's better than Foles. How is this Cowboys news? I'm sorry you cannot handle discussions about division foes, I'm sorry that's too much for you. LOL.

    Yet he lost his job to Vick who lost his job to Foles last year. If he is what you think he is, he's the starting QB for the Eagles. In today's NFL, if you have a QB that is mobile, has command of the offense, and has played well in preseason and TC, he is your starting QB unless you have a top tier QB ahead of him.

    My sentiment exactly! (Hope it doesn't come back to bite me on the rear)

    Relatively impactful move by a NFCE opponent.

    So this makes him the clear cut best backup in the league? I think not.

    Makes sense to me, he's well suited to run that kind of offense...
