    Actually, the defense has improved.

    Foles had a terrible game against Dallas. It happens. I don't believe the Eagles quarterback of the future is on the team right now but I think Foles bounces back in Oakland. I also think drafting a quarterback will be VERY high on the agenda next year.

    Eagles 49- Raiders 20. I think you'll agree that you missed this one by a huge margin, Bub. That's OK. I thought the game would be close and went with the Raiders in the Picks game. :skull:

    So...whose the starting QB for Philadelphia. Is it Vick? Or does Foles assume the reigns?
    A backup QB simply doesn't throw 7 TDs in a game. The problem Foles has is that he's quiet
    and unassuming. We all want our QBs to be loud and boisterous. Vick has been a nice
    comeback story, but my opinion is that it may be time to move on. Chip Kelly has brought
    a new offense to the Eagles and it looks like Foles fits in nicely. I remember when Brady and
    Belichick got together in New England. They've been singing sweet music since. Brady is like
    148 - 42 as a starter in his career now. Time for the Eagles to make a decision.

    Raiders shot their wad against the hated Steelers... must've thought the season was over.
    Foles gets 3 pt against Dallas then 7 TDPs on the road.

    I
    If they make a decision now I think it could split the locker room. Vick doesn't like it but he's being a real good soldier and will stay wounded ( even when/ if he gets healthy) as long as needed. There is no reason to commit now. If Foles continues to do well he will be the quarterback.

    I think the quarterbacks are both doing great jobs. Vick won't be here next year. It's a draft pick and maybe Foles. I think Barkley is out too.

    You know, Vick is what he is. As a player and as a person. But he's been trying really hard to improve at both and I think he's earned a lot of respect.

    FYI - Nick Foles 2013 stats...

    QBR - 127.4 - highest amongst all QBs with at least 100 attempts.
    Completion percent 62.7
    13 TDs - Zero interceptions.
    Zero QB fumbles......

    He had a perfect quarterback rating plus was pulled almost a quarter early due to a blowout. I haven't even heard anything mentioned about Chip Kelly's offensive scheme. The Eagles defense is getting better. Maybe they can win the weak NFC east. Well, at any rate they are headed in the right direction.

    Meanwhile Andy Reid is 8-0 in Kansas City. Last year K.C. was 2-14

    You also bet the Raiders would crush theEagles last week, Wiggles. They pulled Foles in the early 4th due to a blowout their way.

    Final:

    Eagles 49. -Raiders 20 :)

    This should cancel my preseason prognostication of 4-12 now that you have something that resembles a NFL QB.
