  1. Let's not forget that Duke hasn't done a damn thing yet in the NFL. Not even in preseason. He has shown us that he is all-pro in ability to get injured. Not a good showing yet. So his resume at the NFL level is all hype so far. It's VERY risky to play him this week. I might do it, but that's just bc my other options are lackluster or just as risky. I won't be doing it confidently. Crowell is has a reputation for being a talented back. I don't know why everyone seems so down on him. This guy came in as an UDFA and seized the starting job. Not an easy task. I wouldn't be surprised to
  2. Imo, Crowell's reputation doesn't jive with his tape. I didn't see him flash a single plus attribute last year or this preseason. Therefore, I just don't see how he keeps the more explosive, more agile, more versatile Duke Johnson off the field.
  3. I did and if Johnson gets on the field he'll be able to run with Mack in the lineup as well. Wouldnt be all that mad if Duke comes in and runs the show... If he helps the team, awesome. Fantasy purposes... I know what Crow can do... I think he can do it behind a solid Oline... The passing game and fumbles are what could kill him... duke... or anyone else who comes in there I think he can do it too and it wouldn't shock me if Crowell had a fine year. I like to target players that are good receivers and can possibly play a 3 down role. Based on all the good news and positive vibes and the fac
  4. Prior to Duke's concussion, a number of insiders (e.g., Caplan, Grossi, and Cabot) stated that they expect Duke to lead the backfield in touches or to have a big role. I would also note that Bloom, a Crowell fanboy, liked Duke's talent/ fit over Crowell's coming into the preseason.
  5. We will continue to disagree for the following reason: I am as bearish on Foles as you are on Vick. I would advise Reid to pursue your strategy if Foles had the talent of say Locker or Kaepernick. However, I think the Eagles are more likely to make the playoffs than Foles is likely to flash elite goods by the end of this season. Yes, that's how bad he was the past two weeks. That's how terrible this offensive unit is; particularly the offensive line. It should be noted that Reid apparently agrees with me, as Vick has already started the testing process to get cleared for next week's game. More
  6. You are completely misinterpreting the theme in my post. Please take a another read of it. I clearly stated it's improbable that Vick will lead the Eagles to the playoffs. However, it's the only chance that Reid has to keep his job. Indeed, Lurie has stated publicly that Reid must at the very least make the playoffs. Foles doesn't have the goods to do that. Moreover, he doesn't have the goods to show QB-of-the-future type stuff by the end of this season; particularly with this terrible team.PS- For the record, Vick is 3-5 this season. He has losses to three good teams in Pitt, Atl, and NO. Mor
  7. As improbable as it is, the Eagles could make the playoffs if they win out. Many of us would like to see the team in rebuilding mode. However, Reid is coaching for his job and, therefore, he will be playing his best possible team. He needs to go 9-7 (or 8-8) and perhaps win a playoff game or two. His only chance at doing that is with Vick at QB.
  8. You're clearly not gifted with high verbal aptitude. My original statement was directed towards those folks who considered Foles to be an immediate fix to the Eagles' problems. Perhaps you are such a person? Moreover, I am not a Vick apologist; at least I wasn't one before this season. However, the overwhelming amount of negativity and blame that has been thrown his direction has caused me to come to his defense at times. Where did I state that there were only two thoughts on Vick and Foles? I hope that I'm not the only one who considers neither Vick nor Foles to be the solution to our problem
  9. Yes, because a rookie coming cold into his first-ever NFL action should always be evaluated the same as a 10-year vet.many of my fellow iggles fans were convinced that foles would step in and immediately outperform vick. time for them to eat crowBy my count, Foles had 201 yards passing in one half.How many times has Vick done that this year? Maclin went 8 targets, 8 catches, 93 yards, all in one half - how many times has he done any of that this year? I don't know what it is, but what I can remember are guys like aged Jeff Garcia and AJ Feeley (and Mike Vick 2010 by the way) coming in and doin

  11. While this is great news, if true, I'm not really sure what to make of McFadden being "expected back". If you read the article, it seems like the guy just makes that comment in passing (I.e. he has no sources to back that claim up).Is Jason Cole credible? He is the same dude who's claiming that Vick is gonna be "rested" for the rest of the season.

But you can't evaluate Foles based on a little more than half a game with no prep. That's why he needs to start the rest of the year and evaluate him on that. Today only tells us he looked good at times, like a rookie other times.i agree with your previous points. my post wasn't necessari

  14. One cause for concern is that his HAS is on the same side that he suffered the Lisfranc injury. Stephania Bell from ESPN mentioned that it could present a problem
