GREEN BAY, Wis. - The tundra wasn't frozen - it doesn't actually freeze anymore since they put heating coils beneath the sod - but it wasn't a toasty day in old Lambeau Field, either. The deep-fried cheese curds were the only warm thing in the building when the Eagles and Packers kicked off on Sunday. This isn't an easy place to play, even against a team missing its starting quarterback and, after one offensive series, missing its backup quarterback, too. That didn't hurt the visitors, but the wind still blew cold and steady off the bay, the 78,000 fans still howled along with it, and the Eagles were aware they hadn't beaten a team with a winning record yet this season.

Former Eagles quarterback Bobby Thomason, a three-time Pro Bowler and the eighth-leading passer in franchise history, died Tuesday at age 85 in Charlotte, according to the New York Times. The Times, citing his son-in-law, Sig Johnsen, said Thomason died of heart failure. Thomason played for the Eagles from 1952 to 1957. He succeeded Adrian Burk as the team's starting quarterback in 1957. On Nov. 8, 1953, Thomason became the first Eagles quarterback to throw for 400 yards in a game when his 437 yards and four touchdowns helped the Eagles to a 30-7 win over the New York Giants.

Another chance for Nick Foles to create quarterback stability for the Eagles arrives Sunday, when he is expected to start his fourth game of the season, against the Green Bay Packers. Coach Chip Kelly would not call Foles the starter Thursday, but Foles took practice snaps with the first team for the third straight day and Michael Vick remained limited. Foles must demonstrate that his talent is closer to last Sunday's seven-touchdown performance than to his 80-yard effort against the Dallas Cowboys on Oct. 20. Kelly still needs to see consistency, and how Foles performs Sunday could dictate what the coach does at quarterback beyond this week.

WHO KNOWS when or whether the Eagles' quarterbacking carousel will turn again, but if it turns soon, Michael Vick won't be able to jump on. Eagles coach Chip Kelly said yesterday that Vick isn't able to do 7-on-7 work in practice, the way he was at this point following his initial hamstring injury. Later yesterday, Vick told Glen Macnow and Anthony Gargano on 94WIP he was "feeling better," but couldn't put a percentage on his recovery from the reinjury, suffered Oct. 27 against the Giants.

EVEN AFTER quarterback Nick Foles' historic game in Oakland, Eagles coach Chip Kelly, at his day-after news conference, was not ready to write off the possibility of quarterback Michael Vick returning to the field as the starter against Green Bay this weekend. Vick, who continues to rehab a hamstring injury, witnessed Foles pass for seven touchdowns and 406 yards in the Eagles' 49-20 win over the Raiders. Foles left Sunday's game with nearly 13 minutes left in the fourth quarter, but he had already thrown two more passing touchdowns than Vick had in six total games this season.

In the last two games, the Eagles offense has scored just three points in 25 possessions. That shouldn't be easy to do, particularly for an offense that averaged 28 points and 450 yards in the first six games of the season. The Eagles made it look easy, though, in their flat efforts against the Cowboys and the Giants. Chip Kelly, brought to town as an offensive genius, is aware of all this. He is asked if opposing teams have figured out his scheme. He is asked if the talent is good enough to get the job done.

CAN NICK FOLES end the "quarterback instability" Chip Kelly says he feels has stymied the Eagles' offense lately? "That's why I'm here," Foles said yesterday, after Kelly announced Foles will start this Sunday at Oakland. "I want to get this thing going . . . It starts with [the quarterback position]. We've really got to make the right decisions and get our offense stable. The defense is doing a great job, and I expect them to continue to play at a high level. We've just got to pick it up and play together as a team.

Nick Foles will start at quarterback for the Eagles on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders, coach Chip Kelly said. Kelly announced his decision before Wednesday's practice, one day after Foles returned from a weeklong absence because of a concussion. "I was really happy with how Nick practiced today," Kelly said. "Nick did a really good job, and Nick is going to be our starting quarterback this week. He'll take the reps with the [first team] this week, and we'll get ready as a team to prepare for Oakland.

Nick Foles received medical clearance to resume playing Tuesday and the second-year Eagles quarterback returned to practice. No starter has been named for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders, but Foles is in line to return to action if he remains healthy. He suffered a concussion in the Eagles' 17-3 loss to Dallas on Oct. 20. Foles split snaps at practice with rookie Matt Barkley. Michael Vick, who has an injured hamstring, was at practice but did not participate in team activities.

AT SOME point, the NFC Least is going to stop being the land of perpetual playoff hope. At some point, the Eagles aren't going to be able to wake up the morning after yet another loss and say, "Hey, we're still only one game out of first place. " At 3-5, they are running out of chances. Seriously. I mean it. They are. Really. The 4-4 Cowboys, who are hosting the 1-6 Vikings this week, can't keep slipping on banana peels forever. So, Sunday's road game against the 3-4 Raiders is a must-win game for the Eagles.
