Kendall: TE Martellus Bennett or Owen Daniels in Week 4?
Given his proneness for bonehead-like behavior, I thought Bennett would be a disaster for the Giants. The theory was sound: yes, Eli Manning likes to utilize his tight ends, but if Jerry Jones, an owner who has seen his share of immature and imprudent conduct, thought the Texas A&M product was detrimental to his team, how would Bennett react to the no-nonsense environment of Tom Coughlin? Seemed like the Kanye West - Kim Kardashian romance held a better outlook.
Bennett has proved this conjecture wrong in the early going, grabbing 15 balls for 185 yards and three touchdowns. Granted, the G-Men's slate has not been filled with the most formidable of foes thus far, but hard to argue against Bennett's 23 targets, good for second-best on the team.
However, Daniels has been no slouch himself, hauling in 13 catches for 160 yards and a score. With Daniels and the Texans taking on a Tennessee team that has surrendered ...
BEST OF MAXIM
This is a guest post from Lucas McMillan of FootballSchedule.me.
Through the first two games of the season, Michael Vick turned the ball over six times, yet the Eagles were 2-0. However, after the Eagles’ devastating Week 3 loss against the Arizona Cardinals, in which they turned the ball over three times, it’s clear that that kind of luck simply doesn’t last.
A great book tells a great story, but a great story does not necessarily equal out to a great book. I’ve read plenty of autobiographies in my day where the stories were good, but when they were translated to book form, the book was underwhelming, disappointing and/or flat-out trash. However, there is none of that [...]The post Book Reviews: Michael Vick’s ‘Finally Free’ appeared...
Michael Vick punctuated his remarkable comeback story with a sensational performance against the New York Giants in Week 15 two years ago.
Since then, Vick has been Mediocre Mike.
The Philadelphia Eagles are just 9-9 in Vick's starts since he led them to an NFC East title by bringing them back from a 21-point deficit with 8:17 remaining to beat the Giants 38-31 on Dec. 19,...

BRINGING THE SMACK
Giants tight end Martellus Bennett recently said he believes there is no comparison between his team's quarterback, Eli Manning, and Cowboys signal-caller Tony Romo.
The Philadelphia Eagles have been a pass-happy offense ever since Andy Reid took the head coaching job. When he aligns himself with offensive coaches such as Marty Mornhinweg, that philosophy will only get stronger and become more evident. It was the case with Donovan McNabb, and now it is the case with Michael Vick.
The problem is, it just isn’t working. The Eagles have LeSean...
Michael Vick has been battered and beaten thus far in the season, and yet the media reacts as if the Eagles are 0-3!
Philadelphia is still sitting pretty at 2-1, and Nick Foles is more than a capable backup behind Vick in case anything goes wrong.
Despite the dangerous southpaw that is often considered an injured player waiting to happen, Vick and the Eagles have nothing to be depressed...
If the Eagles can’t contain the Giants D line, it will be a long day for Michael Vick on Sunday.
Sunday night’s matchup with the New York Giants will be a huge game for the Philadelphia Eagles. There is huge difference between 3-1 and 2-2 in the NFL, and a loss in this game could really be a setback for the Eagles.
This game will undoubtedly be won in the trenches. And specifically...

Andy Reid didn’t say that there is a chance that he would replace Mike Vick with Nick Foles. That’s not what he meant when he said, “We’ll evaluate as we go here.”
You misinterpreted his words. It’s just semantics, man.
That was Reid’s assertion when he met with the media on Wednesday, at least.
According to Reid, he was unaware of how is comments...
After two narrow victories in the first two weeks, the Eagles got a reality check in a 27-6 road loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
It’s still very early in the season and there is still a lot of football to be played. There are still a lot of question marks about this team. Can Michael Vick improve upon his ball security? Will Andy Reid make changes in his play calling? Will Juan...
The defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants head into a Week 4 matchup against division rival Philadelphia on a roll. After dropping their opening game to Cowboys, the Giants have won two straight.The Eagles, on the other hand, pulled out two close games in the first two weeks, before losing on the road in Arizona last Sunday.Here are THREE BOLD PREDICTIONS for this Week 4...
The Philadelphia Eagles are matched up with the division rival New York Giants this Sunday night in Philadelphia. If you played any Eagles in last week's fantasy game, you probably were disappointed with the lackluster performance by the offense.
No touchdowns by any player as the Eagles only mustered two field goals. The Eagles have been somewhat of an enigma this...
9. Arizona Cardinals are 3-0
Given that it’s too early to call the Cardinals playoff contenders, they have demonstrated some great football so far. They have beat two preseason Super Bowl contenders in back-to-back games (Patriots, Eagles), and their defense made Michael Vick look like Kevin Kolb this week
8. The New York Jets are in 1st place in the AFC East
This is surprising...
