The Dallas Cowboys impressive win against the New York Giants on Wednesday night 24-17, has officially made the NFC East wide open and the Philadelphia Eagles have a shot this season to be the next ‘Redeem’ team in 2012. Now it’s foolish to compare the 2012 Eagles to the 2008 U.S. Olympic Basketball team, but [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
When the Philadelphia Eagles signed QB Michael Vick to a six year contract worth more than $100 million, everyone knew that they were taking a huge risk, gambling on Vick’s health, among other things. Nobody knew how his body would hold up after his great comeback season of 2010, and they also were not sure whether or not Vick could stay out of trouble. Philly rolled the dice,...
I don’t care if he only had 12 pre-season snaps. I don’t care if he was rusty. No NFL offense with this level of talent should ever play that poorly. Michael Vick played one of, if not, his worst game as an NFL quarterback.
I used to think that Michael Vick just needed some good coaching, but…
the problem with that is, the mistakes Vick makes simply can’t be coached. You...

That is all.
Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin was in and out of the game Sunday due to several ailments but he still managed to catch seven passes for 96 yards and a touchdown.Fantasy Spin:Maclin went to the locker room with a hip injury in the first half and then exited in the third quarter to get an IV. Still, he turned in a nice fantasy day and is a good bet to post his first 1,000-yard season in 2012.
Michael Vick was asked what a successful season for the Eagles would entail. His answer echos what the vibe from owner Jeff Lurie: “Man, I ain’t got no ring on my finger. I ain’t got one. That’s it. I don’t know what else,” Vick said, via Reuben Frank of CSNPhilly.com. “I’ve been there. Playoffs is [...]

A Browns defense which led to all the points on the scoreboard couldn't hold the lead late, as Eagles' QB Michael Vick rallies the Eagles to a 17-16 victory.
(On how to stop Michael Vick)- “Not many people ever have. He’s an extremely talented athlete as we all know, incredibly strong arm, can reach almost any part of the field with the ball," Jauron said.
(On finishing a lot of hits on Michael Vick)- “That’s just how we play. DQ [D’Qwell Jackson] said it best; we’re just trying to pick an identity for ourselves. We’ve got to be a good defense- we’ve got to create an identity. Get the ball, rush the quarterback, make plays," Robertson said.
When the Cleveland Browns picked off Michael Vick to go up 16-10 with a pick six in the fourth quarter, there was 13 minutes left in the game. I was not that worried. I just thought, Vick has to stay out of the middle of the field, where he threw two of his four picks. Sure enough, Vick lead a 91-yard drive for the winning score. It was a four-yard touchdown to Clay Harbor. Extra...
It was ugly. It was embarrassing. But the Philadelphia Eagles got the job done and managed to escape Cleveland with a 17-16 victory over the Browns.
On offense, there wasn’t much to be proud of. On defense, there wasn’t much to complain about. Ultimately, there’s only one thing to walk away from in all of this—thank God the NFL season is a long one!
The Eagles’ performance...
