Cam nah I'm not mad just having fun. I like the CAPS sometimes. Vick may not be the best option but he is a better option than Foles. We have had enough time to figure out Foles. It's time to move one.
Just to be clear, I don't dislike Foes at all. He hasn't said or done anything to be disliked. Simply from the perspective of having a winning Eagles team, he isn't a good option. Even if Vick isn't the guy for 1 more year, we need a better option than Foles if the goal is to win. If the goal is to experiment, go with Foles and kiss the season good bye. At least we will know what we are getting.

You need more than smarts to win. That is just 1 of several components. You have to be able to throw accurately and you have to be able to move in out of the pocket at the right time. Also, you need a good defense and an O-Line. Football is a team sport. All the good teams have at least a good O-Line to protect the QB.
Too Funnly, LMAO.

Foles did a fantastic job, he was smart, poised, gritty, and commanded the offense well. He is able to throw anticipatory passes, and can see the field better from his 6'5" - 6'6" vantage point. He has excellent pocket presence: he was able to move up into the pocket rather than panicking and squeaking out the side, only to be tackled or throw a pick. He came in behind a sieve of an O-Line, with moronic offensive playcalling, and a sieve of a defense, and still showed promise.
Also, for you to be an advocate of signing Alex Smith in any way, further proves your inability to judge QB's. Smith was able to be a "game manager" after 6 or 7 years in the league behind one of the best running games, and one of the best O-lines in the national league. Jim Harbaugh coached him into a "serviceable" QB. There is a good reason he was replaced after one start by kaepernick: Smith's just not that good-even when he had the highest completion percentage in the NFL. He has a low ceiling of performance. He will get overpaid wherever he goes, and they will find that without the amazing support structure and personal coaching from Jim Harbaugh, he is a mediocre, aging QB.
Eagles should draft a QB very late - 5th, maybe 4th round, and groom him behind Foles to instill competition and provide a fresh option. First, the eagles must focus on defense, specifically the secondary, and get Matt Elam.
Also, we should re-sign DRC, as he will be good again with the right pieces around him. Nnamdi is garbage, our safeties are very expendable, we should be stocking up on secondary picks.
I agree with the fadt that "Marty "the mad scientist" and Andy at the helm of that offense. Two coaches who still insist on empty backfield sets frequently in the game, when our biggest threat is in the running game, and our QB needs more time on the drop-back passing plays." This comment applies for all of our QBs Vick, Foles and Edwards. Not just Foles.
I don't agree with "Foles did a fantastic job". If he had won more games under the terrible conditions last year then I would agree with you. I agree that "He came in behind a sieve of an O-Line, with moronic offensive playcalling, and a sieve of a defense." So did Vick.
You said, " Smith will get overpaid wherever he goes, and they will find that without the amazing support structure and personal coaching from Jim Harbaugh, he is a mediocre, aging QB. " My friend, we see this happen time-and-time again. How many NFL QBs are solid year-in-year out? Maybe 6. That's 6 out of 32 teams. That's less that 20%. Every year we get some surprisingly outstanding performances by some QBs. It doesn't guarantee that they will do well the next year. Some of those QBs that performed surprisingly well get a nice big contract and then thier next season SUCKS. Why? Glad you asked. Maybe that good year was a fluke. Maybe the O-line sucked or the defense or the coach or a new coaching staff came in,... Joe Flacco will get paid now. Will 2013 be good for Joe Flacco we don't know. Some people always thought he was a bum. Now they will shut up (SB Win). If he has a bad 2013 they will say he is overpaid, washed up, too old and he is a bum.
I totally agree that " First, the eagles must focus on defense, specifically the secondary."
See we aren't that far apart. Cheers.
