It's official. The Philadelphia Eagles have a major quarterback controversy on their hands after Nick Foles led the team to a 31-20 win in Tampa Bay on Sunday, although it's not the kind most fans are accustomed to.
The decision between Foles and incumbent Michael Vick is not a decision between which one is the lesser of two evils. Both signal-callers have legitimately played well in their own ways. The four-time Pro Bowler brings an extra dimension to the offense with his runs, but the second-year passer has been far more efficient through the air.
All things considered, it's a good problem for Philadelphia to have. Maybe the old saying, "When you have two QBs, you have none," isn't true in this situation.
Needless to say, a lot of the Week 6 takeaways revolve around Foles and how the offense looked with him in charge. Understand that Vick can be very explosive, but what the 24-year-old has been able to accomplish so far in his second NFL season really ought to be opening some eyes.
The Buccaneers have a good defense that was holding opponents to 17.5 points per game entering this contest, and Foles shredded them every which way. Here's my take on the controversy and more from a quality win to move the Eagles back to .500 for the season.
