Until the Philadelphia Eagles are mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, they won't look toward the future or reflect on the past.
The underachieving Eagles (4-8) head to Miami on Sunday, and playing the Dolphins (4-8) is all they're talking about. They somehow still have a chance to finish first in a mediocre NFC East, though it would take help - a lot of it.
All they can control, though, is their performance.
''It's a desperation last four games and we want to finish strong and we know how important that is,'' quarterback Michael Vick said Wednesday. ''It's unfortunate that we're in the situation that we're in now, but there's nothing we can do about it. The best thing we can do right now is to just win the next game. And we know it's going to be a tough game because they have a very good football team and a very good defense so we're going to have to do the things that are going to put us in a position to ...
BEST OF MAXIM
The growing majority of fans have reached their point with Eagles’ head coach Andy Reid after a disastrous 4-8 start to what was once (Week 1) a promising season.Numerous draft busts, blind faith in unprepared and undeserving coaches and missed free agent signings have transformed the Eagles from a team thought to have an embarrassment of riches into one that can be described...
Michael Vick watched practice from the sideline, still sore from taking a beating in his first game back after breaking his ribs last month.
Vick participated in a walkthrough Wednesday morning, but was a spectator in the afternoon when the Philadelphia Eagles began preparations for Sunday's game against the New York Jets.

Dolphins coach Tony Sparano had a hearty laugh when he heard that Eagles quarterback Michael Vick intended to become a more conservative quarterback, and planned to slide more often.
All season long we’ve been hearing Andy Reid say his usual “I have to do a better job to put players in the position to win”. He says “it starts with me” which may be true, but still, that does not clearly address what exactly the Eagles problems are. So lets [...]
According to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Eagles head coach Andy Reid indicated today that quarterback Michael Vick will play on Sunday against the Dolphins, barring any setbacks. Vick will likely wear a protective vest as a procaution to protect the two broken ribs that he suffered a few weeks ago. Getting Vick back will [...]

Will Andy Reid have to demote or dismiss defensive coordinator Juan Castillo to save his own job? The Eagles' coach said no one has approached him on that topic, at least not yet.
Michael Vick turned in a full practice Wednesday, and barring a setback to his rib injury he'll be starting in Week 14. The welcome-back matchup is a tricky one, a road game against the surging Dolphins. Most observers would have projected a Philly blowout if this game were played in the early weeks of the season; now, Miami is a three-point favorite.
Does Vick automatically...
On Monday, Eagles coach Andy Reid pushed back against the gloom patrol, reminding everyone that the Eagles window is still wide open:
“People perceive us to be an old football team but we’re really not an old football team.” he said on his radio show. “We’re one of the youngest teams in the [NFL]. That takes time.”
