Two games into preseason, and two games our starting quarterback Michael Vick leaves with an injury. This time it looked just as scary as the first week, and lucky for him (and fans), all scans come up negative for broken ribs or cartilage. Backup rookie quarterback Nick Foles once again impresses and takes control of the Offense for three and a half quarters, leading the Philadelphia Eagles over the New England Patriots 27-17 on Monday Night Football. We expect Foles to pretty much get the remainder of the preseason playing time so Vick can rest his sore ribs and pretty much not get killed before the start of the regular season, plus Kafka is still going to be out until Week 1 or so. This is fine with Eagles fans, as right now we cannot get enough of seeing the future leader get as much NFL experience as possible.
Others that impressed us in the game were Mychal Kendricks, Bryce Brown, Phillip Hunt, and Brandon Boykin. Those who did not impress were the replacement refs -shudder-. Obviously it’s preseason, so we’re not going to see too much from the Offense or Defense regarding specialty plays, yet we do expect the team to improve in terms of discipline and basic mechanics.
We had an email from Herbert in Philly, and a few voicemails from Ross in DC… remember, voicemail records for only three minutes! LOL Thanks for the feedback, you guys are great. A special thanks to Steve Brown who stayed up very late to hang with us this week. Good on ya!
