Nick Foles showed up to Eagles headquarters this week in UGGs, earning the ridicule of LeSean McCoy and possibly instilling hope in the most deluded Iggles fans that he’s the next coming of Troll Brady. I would say that Foles starting spoils what would have been an intriguing match-up between Michael Vick and RGIII, but that viewpoint is informed by a preseason perspective of Vick that doesn’t include him fumbling five times per game.
Seems a little odd, as ugly as the early slate is, that Eagles-Redskins is the only contest of the early slate affected by the Week 11 back-up quarterbacks menace. Thank goodness neither Doopy Pantz or Tony Romo is down this week, because that would deny the world the interceptionkkake that will result when the league leaders in picks meet in Dallas. I’ll set the interception over/under at five for that game.
Elsewhere, the entire feed of the Jaguars-Texans game should be three hours of this car puttering around the roadways, a tiny mobile meth lab operating out of the trunk.
