Defense gets raped, completely destroyed, so the logical thing to do is replace the QB?
I love Philly.

This is what happens when you don't give the ball to the best player on your team.
its not all over imo.... on mnf is a elimantion game in the nfc... whoever loses really has no shot for the playoffs...... if saints lose its over for them.. if philly loses theres no shot at wildcard and itll take a miracle to win the division.... so thats my forward looking thought
as for the game... look vick wasnt really at fault... I was SCREAMING when they didnt go for it on 4th and 2 near halftime.....
jason babin penalty was HUGEEE to.. and Kendricks got lit up by the vet....
#eagles Andy Reid met with coaches after game on sunday to discuss QB situation. Meet again Mon Morn. I'm told likely QB change to Foles.I'm told Vick made 2 bad audible mistakes on calls and has same problems each wk. Reid leaning 2 change at QB bcause Vick not getting better
Vick is obviously not the future. Is Foles? Who knows. What I do know is the offensive production is declining. Is Vick the only reason? No. There are many factors. But why stick with a player that will not be here next year? See what you have with Foles. This move will force Andy to run the ball at the very least. Maybe Foles can show us enough to build around, if not, we deal with it in the off season. I'd rather know if Foles can not run an offense now as opposed to next season.
I think this is a good week to make the switch. Yeah, they play Monday night, but this offense better be able to move the ball against the Saints. I'd rather start him against a historically horrible defense on Monday night, than at home against the Cowboys.
Not only is this bad for the Eagles, its could potentially be bad for Foles' development. Blaine Gabbert got pretty gun-shy after a year of being thrown around behind a poor offensive line. Hopefully that doesn't happen to Foles.
If a QB isn't mentally tough enough, he just isn't tough enough. I don't buy into the "thrown into the fire" thing.
nice to see that Andy wont have to bench Mike Vick and that the "leader of our team" is ok with being benched..
our defense.... please... again I say this... how do you expect our defense to do anything when the time of possession is so unbalanced. The first 2 quarters was pathetic 3 and outs.... Once the offense clicks the defense does too....were the most "explosive" team in the nfl right? how many points per game we score?
oh wait... look ill show you
KANSAS CITY score more then us per game.... KANSAS FREAKING CITY......were in 30th place... pathetic..
STOP BLAMING THE DAMN DEFENSE! When your on the field for 2/3 of the first half because the OFFENSE CANNOT MOVE THE BALL then thats a problem. WE ARE the 2nd worst team in NFL HISTORY in the first quarter. Unless that changes this year we will finish entrenched in that record book.
Our defense is better then average...

And dont even get me started on our special teams...
returning kickoffs or punts....
and our defending / tackling / opponent field position.......
so again... stop blaming the defense...its more then them / Andy. It starts with moving the ball and winning the field position game...
Foles will have to take snap and immediately pass or he will be destroyed.I'm not sure he will even be able to hand the ball off as bad as the O-line is.
Foles will put up 30 on the Saints defense and lead us to a Super Bowl.
Then I'll turn the Xbox off
I understand the change though because Reid needs to do something and the team from top to bottom looked like they did not care yesterday...The defense is was the issue yesterday but vick looked like he did not care in the 4th when they were back in the game.
