Foles is a question mark. I don't think he is good enough to be the Eagles starter next year and they should be looking for a better QB. He didn't prove himself in all the games he started. Only 1 win. Winning teams and winning fans would not be satisfied with that performance. He will need more time to improve.
Trent Edwards should stay as the backup QB. He has experience and he isn't expensive.
Choose a Coach 1st. Choose his supporting coaches. Choose a QB that fits into the "new" system.
Need a better defense NOW whille we work on pulling the other pieces together. We won't get it all done in one off season. With a better defense we will be more competitive even if we struggle to score points initially next season.

This is great we can talk (write) about football with all the other team fans not on the Eagles Web.

You almost have to go with the premise that Vick is gone...
OK, that leaves us with Foles...
Now you have to decide if you want Foles to be a game-manager type like Trent Dilfer was for the Ravens in 2000...or if you want him to become a gunslinger-type difference maker like Joe Flacco...
Once you make that decision, you can proceed to the next set of variables...
My head hurts just thinking of all the variables the Eagles front office has to process on this one, especially going into the Draft or considering trade options...

The guys a powerful stud at 6-foot-4, 325 pounds. Quick and explosive off the ball at the snap. and is said to be a "powerful penetrator with the capacity to walk O Linemen into the lap of the QB". Also, I read that " Most opponents are overwhelmed by Lotulelei's brute strength and power, resulting in consistent penetration into the backfield against the run." And, finally, "Lotulelei's natural strength and power allow him to collapse the pocket from up the gut, forcing quarterbacks to move from their sweet spots. Lotulelei would be hard-pressed to develop into a double-digit sack artist from the interior, but his ability to press the pocket and alter the quarterback's timing is a valuable trait that coaches appreciate in the middle of a defense." Man, that sounds too good to pass up. If we don't get him, Detroit will. Lotulelei may go as high as number one and I haven't studied the needs of those teams in front of the Eagles but, if he's available...

And how exactly is Vick the bigger "talent"? What's the bases for that comment? Can Vick read a defense? Um no. Can Vick check down to the hot receiver? Um - NO. Can Vick change the protection at the line of scrimmage? Still a no. I know -- can Vick protect the ball? Wholly poop - we a "NO" a crossed the board Spuds. Where exactly is Vick the bigger talent?
I get that in winter you have to fill this space as much as possible, which isn't easy to do, but stop with the garbage stuff. I'd rather read about the kicker. What's next - an article on how great and deep the defensive line is? I think you said in spring of 2012 it was the best the Eagles ever fielded(with respect to RW of course).

Get a good HC, fix the locker room mentality, and i believe the team, with Foles at the helm will excel in 2013.
Do not waste a pick on QB!!!
