Ignoring long term, which QB gives Eagles best chance to beat Cowboys? - JimmyK,
Ignoring the philosophical long-term reasoning for picking one QB over the other, let’s evaluate who gives the Eagles the best chance to win in just this upcoming game against Dallas.

The Kelly QB - Tommy Lawlor, Iggles Blitz
As we talk about the future of the QB position with the Eagles, I think we sometimes make faulty assumptions. Kelly did have mobile QBs at Oregon. He did keep Vick. But we don’t know for a fact that these are the guys Kelly truly wanted.

Eagles fortunate to have two capable QBs - John Gonzalez, CSN Philly
What we’ve missed so far, or ignored, or had drowned out by all the recalcitrant shouting, is the happy reality: The Eagles are in a good spot. They have two quarterbacks who have performed well this season. Even in this town, that ought to be cause for celebration rather than divisiveness.

Let the Debate Begin - Tim McManus, Birds 24/7
Though the preference is to have a mobile quarterback run the show, the Eagles will take a franchise quarterback no matter what his style is. They don’t know if Foles has what it takes yet. If they were convinced he was the guy, Vick wouldn’t be here. If they were confident he wasn’t a franchise player, he’d likely be in Kansas City right now.

5 statistics that should (but won’t) end Eagles quarterback debate - Andrew Kulp, The700Level
I doubt anybody believes these two wins suddenly anoint Nick Foles a franchise quarterback, that they serve as any indication he’ll lead the Eagles to a Super Bowl someday. On the contrary, it doesn’t prove anything about his future at all. We’re talking about right now, who looks like the best quarterback on the roster?

Eagle Eye In The Sky: Set DeSean Free - Fran Duffy,
Here we are at Week 7 and with the Eagles at 3-3, we’ve seen a team improve since Week 1 in all three phases and continue to adapt to the new staff and the schemes they are implementing. There were a lot of positives to take from Sunday’s win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Despite their record, they are a talented team with skill at every position on the roster. Before I move on to this week’s huge matchup against the Dallas Cowboys, let me first break down some of the key plays and themes that led to Sunday’s win.

Report: Demarcus Ware To Miss 3-4 Weeks With Quad Strain - KD Drummond, Blogging the Boys
For the last few seasons, Ware has suffered from an assortment of injuries, including shoulder and forearm ones that caused him to undergo two surgeries in the offseason. Still, the warrior continued to suit up every Sunday there was a game on the schedule. Now, the Cowboys depleted defensive line will have to battler for up to a month without him.
