Ha! Ha! Chip Kelly lost and wonder boy Nick Foles turned into a rotten pumpkin once the clock showed playoff time. While the media unfairly heaps the blame for the loss on the defense. The Philly defense produced 4 turnovers which Foles & Kelly failed to capitalize on. They shut down Jimmy Graham for most of the game and silenced Marqus Coleston another big playmaker. Yet the defense is blamed for the loss rather than Foles & Kelly who did Vick some serious dirt. Kelly was willing to lose the playoffs rather than call upon Vick's veteran experience to change the tempo of the game against a defense that had found its teeth. A few plays would've changed the outcome. But the real villain in the "Philadelphia Story" is every low-down, rotten, conniving player on the O-line. The O-line blew the season refusing to hold for Vick. I hope those bums never win. Hope Philly signs Foles so they won't be contenders ever again. Once RGIII gets a new coach & coordinator willing to work with him to hone his skills the skins will run the nfc east division. The pocket QB is a relic of the past. Sure Brady & Manning are still around with a lot of help from the refs. But no other pocket passers will have their success. Stats don't mean squat its the intangibles that count. Handling pressure, having the will to win, fearlessness & leadership. These qualities can't be taught or coached. The intangibles win championships & superbowls. Foles couldn't win a playoff game. The Saints are still the same old weak road team its just the Philly with Foles is terrible & weak.

If anyone in vicks family was literate,I would have blamed the above comment on them.
Vick beating his chest like a silver back does not a winning qb make!
Vick only can run faster than foles because of yrs of running from cops;other than that,he is a losing team/coach killer.
Phila would have remained in divisional last place with the ookie limping off the field,throwing wild interceptions.
Karma is a bitch; &with vick's name on a eagles' jersey;she still has some work to do!

I'm curious. How many non-pocket QBs have won the Super Bowl in the past 20 seasons? How many running QBs have stayed consistently healthy in a three year span during that same time?

Eagles should have stuck with Vick, then they wouldn't have even sniffed the playoffs and the Sociopath would have surely been injured again..more pain for Vick is what's best for football!
