Michael Vick: Nick Foles will be a franchise QB

Tuesday, November 12, 2013, 12:56 PM
It didn't really matter Sunday, that the Eagles failed to challenge a 36-yard Packers completion to Jarrett Boykin, because the Birds' Brandon Boykin ended the possession with an interception.

Tuesday, November 12, 2013, 8:35 AM
My wife has been appalled by the whole Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin mess. She wants to give Martin a big hug and console him and tell him everything’s going to be OK and maybe even buy him a puppy dog.
