Another Foles-Vick Update

Here is somewhat of a strange report. Chris Mortensen commented on the Eagles QB competition recently on ESPN.

On Tuesday, Mortensen appeared on the NFL32 program and said it was his understanding that Vick made more mistakes “decision-making wise” than Foles did during OTAs and minicamps. The two quarterbacks took their turns with the first-team offense throughout training camp, and if Mortensen is to be believed, Vick likely made a few bad decisions with the football.

So I’m reporting that someone else is reporting that Mort heard Vick made more decision-making mistakes. Got that?

Sadly, no word on what Merrill Hoge has heard that Trent Dilfer has heard from some of Adam Schefter’s sources. Joking aside, I do trust Mort for the most part. Just wish I knew where he was getting his info. Is this just him reading Eagles writers or has Mort gotten inside info from legit connections?

Really can’t wait until we watch these guys in action with our own eyes.

    I wouldn’t say that it’s not possible, but sometimes these narratives get created out of nowhere and just keep getting retold whether there is any basis for them or not.

    And since that sounds like a spam comment, for clarification I am talking about Vick/Foles.

    could this just be things that Jimmy has reported in his practice reports?
    He noted a few times where Vick was holding the ball too long and was only able to attempt a (very nice) downfield pass after he had been “sacked” by the D (the play continued to let the O get a full rep).
    There were other instances where his passes hit the “bugmen” standing at the line.

    I don’t know if those count as bad decisions, but to me they do. he held on to the ball too long – should have gotten it out sooner, and he chose the wrong passing lane (or just had a bad pass lol)

    Not terribly surprising, decision making has been an… area that needs improvement? Is that putting it diplomatically? Over the past couple of seasons.
