The Eagles haven’t named their starting quarterback for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys, but one member of the Dallas defensive line knows who he wants to see.
Cowboys defensive tackle Jason Hatcher said it will be a challenge for the defense regardless of whether they face Nick Foles or Michael Vick in Week Seven, although he said he finds the challenge provided by Foles more to his liking.
“I would like to see Foles,” Hatcher said, via the Dallas Morning News. “Vick is like a rabbit. He’s all over the place. Foles is more like a stationary guy in the pocket. Both of them are awesome quarterbacks. Foles is playing his butt off these last couple of games. Either one, but I would take Foles over Vick.”
With DeMarcus Ware looking like he’ll be out this week, the Cowboys’ pass rush will take a hit that could make Foles’ more stationary approach to the position less of a positive for Dallas. If Foles has time to throw the ball, he’s been an effective and productive passer that could make Hatcher more careful about what he wishes for in the future.
