Make no mistake: The Eagles can afford to wait until Vick is 100 percent ready, following Foles' performance Sunday in Philadelphia's 31-20 victory in Tampa against the Buccaneers. Foles was decisive. He threw a few pretty deep balls and looked comfortable in Chip Kelly's hurry-up offense. Foles finished with 296 yards on just 31 throws, with four total touchdowns.
Here's what else we learned:
- It hasn't always been pretty, but Kelly's team now is 3-3. That's good enough for a tie for first place in the NFC East with the Dallas Cowboys. They became the third team in NFL history to rack up more than 400 yards on offense in each of the first six weeks of a season.
- It's a bad sign for the Buccaneers that they lost at home to Philadelphia on the same day they got a very nice performance from rookie quarterback Mike Glennon. Tampa moved the ball, and Glennon made a number of difficult throws on third-and-long. He went through his progressions. His interception came when his receiver stopped on a route.
- LeSean McCoy continues to be one of the NFL's best players. He put up 171 yards from scrimmage. He could challenge Marshall Faulk's all-time yards from scrimmage record.
