02:14 PM ET 10.15 | The Dallas Cowboys have a big matchup coming in Week 7 against the Philadelphia Eagles, and there is no official word on who will step out with the first team offense. While Nick Foles looked good in his start last week, Cowboys defensive tackle Jason Hatcher believes the team will have an easier time beating Philadelphia if Foles starts over Vick. The Cowboys will be without star pass rusher DeMarcus Ware, so it makes sense that they would prefer the less mobile quarterback, but you better be careful what you wish for because Foles has the ability to beat you with his arm. Either way, the game is set up to be one of the most important games in the first half of the season in the NFC East.

Cowboy's defense is misguided. Foles may not break of a 40 yard scramble, but he'll hit more receivers quickly.

I think they're about to revise their statement.

Foles is at 6 TD, 0 INTs on the season.

And he chewed up the Cowboys defense the last time he played them.

Maybe they'd rather not chase Vick all over the field, but Foles will do a lot more damage where it counts.

I hate when the Cowboys' players make comments like this, especially right before a game against the team they're talking about.

And even more so after reading #4.

It has little to do with playing ability or style of play. There is one common theme to those tho continue to back Vick inside the city and out.
