Shoulder the load? Maybe Shady will actually get a load to shoulder in this game. He needs at least 23 carries. I trust that Foles will find him on check downs too, so he should get more catches than he had with Vick (who for some reason never checks down)

There's no need for a run game here. This is a passing team. McCoy should be just fine on the bench.

McCoy can't shoulder a load without blocking from the O line. Foles looked pretty good for his first game. He made some nice plays. He also threw a couple TD pass's that Vick has had trouble with. He did turn the ball over twice but once wasn't his fault. He has the chance to put Vick on the bench, for the rest of the year. Just win and see ya, fumbling idiot.

They are making like our star QB got hurt. He was awful all year. Foles will win this job. McCoy is not to blame, the O line has not been run blocking well, this year. I know we have a lot of injuries on the line. But, even before all these injuries they struggled.

I think Foles won the Job in the preseason, Sal Paolentonio said On the Sirius XM Opening driver just before the regular season to let the kid start and see what he's got, I don't think the game would have been a one point win in Cleveland, and he would have only gotten better there. Just My opinion. I am excited for Foles, good luck and waiting for a big EAGLES win!

I have a feeling this may be the game where they actually call run plays, just to spite all the fans that wanna see what Foles can do.
