IRONIC ending to Vick’s career? Eagles/Falcons
Coming out of the bye-week the Eagles under Andy Reid have yet to lose a game. This week, the task of keeping that record in tact might be the most difficult of the Andy Reid era. The 6-0 Atlanta Falcons possibly the best team in football are in town, led by Matt Ryan and BIG receivers. Roddy White, Julio Jones, Tony Gonzalez, containing them an impossible task for any team so far this season, so don’t expect the Eagles to fare much better. The Eagles only chance of slowing them down, doing what they haven’t done this season, getting consistent pressure on the quarterback, early and often.
Michael Vick who is facing the team who gave him his first NFL start could also be seeing his last NFL start against the Falcons. Vick as we all know has been a turnover machine this year. The fumbles and interceptions in large part to blame for the 3-3 record and this weeks keys not much different then previous weeks.VICKneeds to protect the football along with the rest of the Eagles and McCoy needs to have the ball in his hands often. can the Eagles knock off the undefeated Falcons at the Linc??? History is on the side of the Eagles coming out of the bye and who doesn’t like history. History also tells us that the team who turns the ball over the least wins more often than not. It is up to Vick, if he plays a turnover free game will continue the journey as the Eagles starting quarterback. A few turnovers and a loss, his career could end against the team who gave him his career.Similar Posts:

Michael Vick and The Humane Society of the United States attacked in national media outlet.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
While Michael Vick is struggling on the field, an organization named HumaneWatch has gone to great lengths to criticize the NFL QB for now owning a dog, and the Humane Society for supporting Vick’s decision to do so.
Without a doubt the Philadelphia Eagles are the most desperate 3-3 team the NFL has seen in recent memory. From QB turnovers to coaching turmoil, this Eagles team seems to be one bad outing away from a serious shakeup that could include the firing of head coach Andy Reid and or benching of quarterback Michael Vick. It’s a volatile situation that has clearly fallen on the...
Like a lot of NFL fans, I am a big fan of the Madden NFL video game franchise. I recently let go of my copy of Madden 2004 that I had stubbornly held onto for eight years. Falcons fans everywhere remember the significance of that edition of Madden: Michael Vick was on the cover and he was wearing a Falcons jersey. Remember how good that felt? Everyone had to give the Falcons respect...
Photo: Daily News via Philly.comThe Philadelphia Eagles are 3-3 and in the midst of their bye week. Michael Vick can’t stop turning the ball over. The offensive line has been brutal. The offense in general can’t score points. Reid and Mornhinweg can’t or won’t adjust their play-calling to overcome and/or reduce the offense’s shortcomings.The defense has collapsed...
Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham indicated that the team firing coach Juan Castillo was a necessary move based on some of his in-game coaching strategies.
The first half of the season is coming to an end, and a few key points have become abundantly clear:
Mike Vick is done.
Tom Caughlin hates fumblers.
Jerry Jones is the next Al Davis (in the bad way).
RG3 will have the shortest, most exciting NFL career.
Atlanta is finally good. For real.
Cam Newton isn’t the next RG3.
Having a coach is kind of important.
This week is going to be, to put it mildly, interesting.
The Eagles are coming off a bye week in which Andy Reid replaced his DC and there are widespread rumors of problems in the entire front office.
The Falcons, also coming off a bye, are the only remaining undefeated team.
Andy Reid has never lost the game the week after the bye, including the infamously disastrous 2005 season...
Linebacker Casey Matthews hinted at what he thought of Juan Castillo’s coaching when he summed up the first meeting of the Philadelphia Eagle defense in the Todd Bowles era on Monday: “We’re not going to be predictable anymore.”
Brandon Graham took those comments further on Wednesday by blaming Castillo for the Eagles defensive woes in the games of which he presided. Graham...
