The Linc - Does Nick Foles have the edge over Vick?


Mosher's Mailbag: Foles has edge over Vick? | Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia
Now, it’s obvious to me that Vick actually has the toughest road to the starting job, more than Foles or Barkley. At 33, which he turned last month, he’s far and away the oldest quarterback on the roster. At more than $7 million this year, he’s also far and away the most expensive. New coaches tend to build their programs around young franchise signal callers, not aging ones whose best days are well behind them.

Don't ignore Brandon Graham's salary - NFC East Blog - ESPN
Too many pass-rushers is a good problem to have, so even if Graham stays stuck behind Cole and Barwin on the depth chart throughout training camp, I wouldn't expect the Eagles to be in a rush to dump him. He's talented enough that they should and will find uses for him. His issues his first two years in the league were health issues, not ability ones. I don't think the arrival of Kelly, Davis or Barwin signals the end for Graham in Philadelphia. I think he'll get every chance to show he can handle his position switch and new role, and only if he flops in it will they think about moving on from him.

Elite Firefighter Killed Fighting Arizona Wildfire Born in BuxCo, Loved Eagles | NBC 10 Philadelphia
Robert Caldwell was one of 19 killed fighting the Yarnell Hills wildfire. A rabid Eagles and Phillies fan, Robert would frequently travel back to the Philadelphia area along with his dad to see his grandmother and catch games at the Linc and Citizens Bank Park. "He was a diehard fan," said Dave Caldwell. "In fact the night I saw him last he was wearing a Phillies shirt. On the back it said, "Hating the Mets until the day I die.'" “He worshiped Brian Dawkins,” said Ciccone. “He never became a Cardinals fan or Diamondbacks fan. He would fight with all the fans out there.”
