Eagles wide receivers Jeremy Maclin and DeSean Jackson missed Thursday's practice with injuries. Head coach Andy Reid said Maclin (hip) and Jackson (hamstring) would not participate but could still play in Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Eagles odds and ends – Maclin injured, Gilyard back, Ravens up next

Andy Reid announced after a skin-of-your teeth win against Cleveland in week 1 that wide receiver Jeremy Maclin has a hip pointer. Maclin caught 7 passes Sunday for 96 yards and was the Eagles best receiver. The fact that he was even able to play the whole game was a small victory. Maclin got roughed up on two plays, and was shaken up both times. He sat out a down after the first...

Why Michael Vick May Cost Andy Reid His Coaching Job in Philadelphia

Jeff Zelevansky / Getty Images Just because Andy Reid is the NFL’s longest-tenured head coach doesn’t mean his position with the Philadelphia Eagles is secured by any means. Ever since taking over in 1999, Reid has been able to elevate the Eagles franchise from mediocrity into the upper echelon of the league, but has never been able to deliver the City of Brotherly Love what...

Jason Whitlock: Andy Reid is “a moron” for not running more against Browns

I can’t say that I wouldn’t be unhappy with Andy Reid’s play selection Sunday if I were an Eagles fan. It’s interesting to read such fallout for the coaches of the winning team. Leave it to Whitlock to resort to name-calling. At some point that probably detracts from credibility in most people’s minds. In a tight game the Eagles led for much of the day, Reid waited until...

Micheal Vick’s terrible day

Image source: Browns Facebook Page I was there in Cleveland to witness Micheal Vick’s terrible performance and the usual collapse by the Browns. Vick is getting plenty of heat, for good reason, while some like Jason Whitlock called Andy Reid a “moron” for relying to much on the passing game when LeSean McCoy. Both Vick and Reid deserve the blame. Reid has always relied too...

Eagles matchup with Ravens: will Reid put Vick in the right position to win?

Next up for the Eagles will be the Baltimore Ravens, and if you watched them Monday night play the Bengals, you should realize the Eagles will need a better effort if they hope to win.

When the Eagles coaches watch the tapes on the Ravens they will see...

Andy Reid is trying to turn Michael Vick into an old white man

You can talk about the bad decisions, or the lack of awareness when it comes to eluding injury, but despite his inadequacies, Michael Vick possesses a skill set that few others have been able to emulate in my lifetime, or maybe ever.I’m not his biggest fan, but not since the recent arrival of Cam Newton and more recently Robert Griffin III, has the NFL seen a quarterback who can...
