So every time on the field, I would say stuff to him like, ‘You is a bum … You are the third-best defensive lineman on the defense.’ Which I didn’t lie. Wait, I did lie. He’s the fourth now, so I actually did lie.” Umenyiora didn’t exactly disagree with McCoy and appeared to take the high road this time.

QB OR NOT QB?
When asked about Michael Vick's mediocre play of late, Eagles head coach Andy Reid didn't exactly give his QB a ringing endorsement.
With Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers in the rearview and Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy and Jeremy Maclin of the Philadelphia Eagles on deck, we're turning the page around here…moving on from last week's feel-good victory and looking at what should be a tough game on the road for the Giants.

State Andre Brown has provided a spark to the team's offense. However, today we learned Ahmad Bradshaw will be making his return against...
The Philadelphia Eagles, and more specifically Michael Vick are struggling. Twelve turnovers in three games. Yeah, twelve. And from the depths of mediocrity Philadelphia has a 2-1 record. Why? Because there’s talent everywhere. Rookies are performing like seasoned veterans primed for a stretch run deep into the post-season. In life and the NFL change is imminent. For a turn-around...
As we all know, the Philadelphia Eagles had a bit of a rough game on Sunday. The offense was bad, the defense was left out to dry, the turnovers continued, and the blocking simply can't be descirbed. Sunday's 27-6 loss dropped the Eagles record to 2-1. Between the play calling, and the lack of blocking, the game was a disaster.
Today, Andy Reid did his weekly press...

Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles took a savage beating at the hands of the Arizona Cardinals yesterday, 27-6, and dropped to 2-1 on the season.
The Eagles out-gained the Cardinals in total offensive yards, 308 - 292, but that's about the only number that came out in their favor.
