The Arizona Cardinals exposed the Michael Vick-led Philadelphia Eagles in a Week 3 match up that left the NFL with one less unbeaten team.
Andy Reid’s team was harassed on the offensive side of the ball, and made a few costly mistakes on defense as well.
Instead of turning their attention to their Week 4 contest against the defending Super Bowl champions, the Eagles must take a step back and evaluate themselves.
If they do, here’s what they’ll learn…
The Offensive Line is a Mess
Let’s begin with the most pressing issue of this game—which in my mind, with no doubt, was the atrocious offensive line play.
Even though this was the first contest in which Michael Vick did not throw an interception, it was due to the fact that the Cardinals were constantly in his face and only surrendered short completions.
On defense, Arizona used plenty of pre-snap movement and sent extra blitzers from different levels. For the majority of the afternoon, Vick failed to id...

Michael Vick was knocked into Arizona's bench on his first play and flattened in the pocket later in the series.
His day never got any better.
Harassed all game by Arizona's attacking defense, Vick was sacked five times and had one of his two fumbles returned for a 93-yard touchdown in the Philadelphia Eagles' 27-6 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.
Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles took a beating at the hands of Kevin Kolb and the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3, losing 27-6. Vick was especially beat-up as he took numerous hits throughout the game, including 5 sacks.
ESPN stats shows the Cardinals defense getting 13 “QB hits” but that can’t be right, the number must be much higher. Vick easily took somewhere...
Eagles coach Andy Reid isn't benching Michael Vick, but he subtly put his starting quarterback on notice Monday. "Right now," Reid said. "We're going with Michael. We'll evaluate as we go." Reid has been here before, and his most recent history of quarterback changes might not make it easy for Vick to rest Monday evening. On Monday, Sept. 21...
It's time to believe in the Arizona Cardinals, this team is for real. With six seconds left in the first half, Michael Vick dropped back to attempt a throw into the end zone. That's when Cardinals safety Kerry Rhodes dropped by and said, "No way," hitting Vick on his blind side and forcing a fumble. Former Patriots safety James Sanders scooped the ball up and took...
The Eagles put on their worst performance in recent memory on Sunday afternoon when they got torn apart by the Arizona Cardinals. With a final score of 27-6, there were many questions that need answering, but perhaps no bigger than the performance of quarterback Michael Vick and if it will effect his role as the number one QB. When asked about a change of QB, head coach Andy Reid...
Earlier today Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid made it sound like quarterback Michael Vick is danger of losing his starting job.
According to Tom Rock of Newsday, Reid was on WIP Radio in Philly and now says that Vick is their quarterback “period.”
“Michael is our quarterback, period,” Reid said “Michael is our quarterback, period period period.”
6 seconds to go in the half. Philadelphia Eagles on the 1-yard-line, down 17-0 against the Arizona Cardinals. Kerry Rhodes introduced himself to Michael Vick and the rest, as they say, was history....

As I said in my last article, the Eagles put on their worst performance in recent memory on Sunday afternoon when they got torn apart by the Arizona Cardinals. With a final score of 27-6, there were many questions that need answering, but perhaps no bigger than the performance of quarterback Michael Vick and if it will effect his role as the No. 1 quarterback.When asked about a...
Both the Arizona Cardinals and Philadelphia Eagles came into to Sunday's week three match-up in Arizona unbeaten at 2-0; the Cardinals however, emerged with a statement win after walloping the Eagles 27-6 behind quarterback Kevin Kolb's very efficient 222 yards and two touchdown passing day.There were a number of big plays on the defensive side of the ball for Arizona, in...
The good news is, it's still September, and the Eagles are 2-1...The better news is, our Eagles just got a diagnostic check-up after losing badly to a team which they dominate on paper... and the results pointed directly to the parts of the engine which need either fine-tuning or replacement.A dagger of a TD reception by Larry Fitzgerald in the 1st half... it seemed to be a predictable...
