This isn't last year, however. The sense that Vick can lead the team to something special, a hope still alive last September, has vanished. It certainly isn't two years ago, either. This Sunday's game marks almost the exact anniversary of the 59-28 demolishing of the Redskins that helped changed the course of the Eagles franchise. Not that game alone, but almost. It secured a new contract for Vick. It sent Kolb out of town. It put the team on a road that has now run into the weeds. And it seemed like such a good game at the time.
That was then. Foles is now.
