07:12 AM ET 10.21 | The ranks of quarterback were already thin in Philly, and then this for Nick Foles. Foles, the reigning NFC Offensive Player of the Week after a wonderful stand-in for starter Michael Vick in Tampa, completed 11 of 29 passes for 80 yards before leaving at the end of the third period with what is assumed to be a concussion. He was examined by a neurologist and did not return. Fourth-round rookie Matt Barkley debuted and threw three interceptions in the fourth quarter. "You've got to understand ... it's his first time playing," head coach Chip Kelly said. And, perhaps, his last. The good news for the Birds: Philadelphia's sheriff might be ready next week. Vick worked out before the game. He could return when the Giants' visit Sunday. "I'm hopeful Mike will be back," said Kelly, probably substituting "hopeful" for "desperate."

If they are as 'desperate' as the Rams, maybe they will talk some Teblow.

And then they will boo Vick if he makes a mistake. It's the Philadelphia way.

Philly fans would boo the Polish Rifle if he tripped walking to the center of the field for the ceremonial coin flip.

Saw a tweet that summed this up...

The Iggles found their QB of the future. He's in college.

Barkley looked like all the other USC duds.

You know your team is in bad straits if you're desperate for Vick to be your QB.

October 21, 2013  08:29 AM ET

Vick is no better.

Things are bad if you're envious of the Cleveland QB situation.

Thanks for the reminder. Barkley is going to cut some holes in a paper bag and for Halloween he will be going as the " Unknown Football Player ".

3 picks in 11 passes, but could have had a 4th. One was overturned because of an offsides penalty.

Bad for Foles. Bad for Barkley. Good news for Vick with a contract running out at seasons end. It certainly is an ill wind that does not blow somebody some good.

Tebow Time!

Sometimes there is nothing on the menu you like so you just hold your nose and pick one.

Most of the time there is no one on the ballot you like so you just hold your nose and pick one.

He's probably still kicking himself in the **** for not coming out after his Junior year.

LOL.

There was a 20 year period where I brought one of my daughters into the booth with me to pick who they wanted to vote for.
