There were two rookies on the field at quarterback on Sunday in Washington but only one was able to look respectable. Robert Griffin III was his usual dynamite self, but the story will be about how Eagles rookie quarterback Nick Foles wasn’t able to give Eagles fans the salvation they were seeking when they’ve been calling his name the past few weeks.
Foles started the game off with two quick interceptions, one of which lead to an immediate Redskins score. From there it was all down hill as the Eagles were thumped in Washington 31-6.
Had it not been for the leg of Alex Henery, the Eagles would have seen their worst game yet this season in Foles debut, as they’d have been shut out. As bad as Philly has been with Michael Vick, things haven’t looked this sloppy all year long.
The next logical place to take the discussion in Philly is Andy Reid’s job security, which is all but non-existent at this point. 8-8 was the gauge for this year and was the restriction on the worst possible record allowed, and as of now the Eagles are 3-7 and Andy Reid is halfway out the door. But while the Eagles have the time to turn things around, without Vick and with a rookie behind that awful offensive line, it will take a miracle for not only jobs to be saved in Philly,but for another win to be had this year.
