What we learned from Eagles minicamp: QBs
|Eagles took a good look at Tannehill but didn't act.|
That's the vibe I'm getting after the offseason workouts.
The Eagles are concerned about Vick's shelf life. That's why the inquired about Peyton Manning, who was coming off a major injury, took a real good look at Robert Griffin III and Ryan Tannehill, and in the third round of the draft, selected Nick Foles.
|McNabb (C) would help.|
Spare me the counterpoint that it's the same for any team losing its starting passer. No other starting quarterback plays a style remotely similar to Vick, who also happens to be the smallest No. 1 in the league.
Not saying Foles or Kafka - and that's how I have them firmly rated right now - cannot play in the league. Just that they're not guys I would count on to win right now. And quite frankly, I'm surprised the Eagles seem to feel this way. It's like the Phillies going into the season knowing Ryan Howard and Chase Utley aren't going to be much help.
But again, it's what the Eagles do, not what they say. Unfortunately they're also running out of time.
