Better Man for the Job: Foles or Vick?

After Eagles’ quarterback Nick Foles’ dominant, record-tying performance on Sunday at Oakland, there’s a better understanding, to an extent, among Eagles’ fans- and even NFL fans in general- about who’s the starting quarterback, when healthy, going forward this season, and even beyond that point.

From seeing all the comments pour in and the reactions come about after Philadelphia’s 49-20 win vs. the Raiders, it seems a lot of fans are on the Nick Foles’ bandwagon now, as for who the starting QB should be from here on out.

Michael Vick is currently sidelined indefinitely with a nagging hamstring injury that’s plagued him on and off for the past several weeks. It is unknown when he will return to game action, if he will be the starter at that point, and what his diagnosis, and future with the team is, going forward. Regardless of health, Vick is an average quarterback in my eyes, who isn’t accurate, but has shown to be able to throw the long ball both regularly and effectively, while relying mostly on his legs to gain first downs and points.

Comparing the two statistically, in their careers, even though Foles’ career has been a (much) small(er) sample size than Vick’s, Foles holds the edge in completion percentage with 61.4%, compared to Vick’s 56.2%. Michael Vick has been more accurate in his career with Philadelphia, compared to his first six seasons with Atlanta (he’s played in five seasons with Philadelphia), with a completion percentage of 59.5, as opposed to a 53.8 percentage with the Falcons. Foles has a long ways to go before he reaches the number of career games played by Vick thus far: Vick currently has played in (but not necessarily started in) 127 games, while Foles has only been in 13.

Nick put on a clinic, to say the least, Sunday at Oakland,  tying an NFL record with 7 touchdown passes in the process.

TSP Events: Nick Foles Autograph Signing and Interview at The Sports Cave

Eagles QB Nick Foles and TSP’s Leo

By Christopher Leomporra

On Tuesday October 2, 2012, Eagles QB Nick Foles had an autograph signing at the Sports Cave in the shops at Liberty Place in Philadelphia.  This was Nick’s first autograph signing in Philly and he was a pleasure to work with during the event, even taking a great promo shot with TSP.  The people lined up and waited for a chance to meet Nick and have an item signed.

TalkSportsPhilly.com co-sponsored the event with Big Brother, Big Sisters and the Sports Cave hosted the signing at their store.  I have to say that Nick was taller in person than I thought and he had a real laid back and easy going personality.  I had a chance to discuss a few things with Nick during the signing about just life and some stuff about the Eagles.

The Greatest QB in NFL History

January 31st, 2010 by Christian | 18 Comments | Filed in Eagles, Football, General

Watch what happens when the most ACCURATE QB in history hits his receivers running at full speed. They can’t be stopped. Montana had better touch and accuracy than anyone, EVER. He could thread a needle whenever he wanted to, and put the ball in a receiver’s arms better than handing off to them. He was more accurate than William Tell. Brains, speed, quick release, touch and precisely accurate.

Bill Walsh gets a lot of the credit, but any coach can draw up plays –  this guy executed them almost flawlessly. That’s why no other team has run the west coast offense and won the Super Bowl. Montana made that offense. His accuracy, brains and athletic ability. Oh, and he’d drive a stake through your heart like Michael Jordan.

Why Andy Has to Go NOW!

You won't Fire ME

You won't Fire ME!

The unacceptable loss to the Cowboys and the utter disgrace against the Chargers have to be the beginning of the end for the fat red head!  “If you keep doing the same things over and over and expect different results you are insane!”  That is what Joe Banner stated this past summer.

Twice in the last month the Eagles played a team with no real run stopping ability and threw the ball over 50 times and lost! If you keep doing the same things over and over and expect different results you are insane!”

Why extend the fat red head when it is obvious to any SANE person he will NOT change!  So I guess Banner was talking about the 70,000 fans who keep paying extortion prices to watch this slop! “If you keep doing the same things over and over and expect different results you are insane!” So according to Banner, Eagles ticket holders are insane by doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

I would take Al Golden and put him in place for next year with Donovan as QB and probably win the Super Bowl. But that will not happen since as the great guru Banner stated  “If you keep doing the same things over and over and expect different results you are insane!”

Eagles Dominate Panthers

September 14th, 2009 by Christian | 1 Comment | Filed in Eagles, General

Donovan McNabb

The Eagles crushed the Panthers, 38-10, to open the 2009 season. The defense set the tone, intercepting Carolina QB Jake Delhomme four times.

Donovan McNabb threw touchdown passes, to Brent Celek and Brian Westbrook, and ran for another, before leaving the game in the third quarter with a cracked rib.

His status for next week is questionable.
