The Eagles are not playing to their talent level this season. Some of it can be attributed to injuries but I put most on the playcalling and decisions by the coaching staff. The Eagles offensive line is devastated, could any QB and RB make plays for this team?
I'm sitting at 84-49 heading into the weekend. I need to have a huge run to get over .750 for the season.
NY Giants @ Cincinnati - The Giants are coming off a tough home loss last week to the Steelers. I think last weeks events caught up to the Giants. I think their routine during the week with practice and meetings was thrown off and it ended up costing them in the game. The fact that they were able to play as well as they did is a testimony to how mentally tough they are. Giants fans shouldn't take anything away from this loss, they'll be fine.
The Bengals have not matured as much as people thought in the second year of Dalton/Green era. Cincinnati hasn't beaten ...

Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles remain in tandem as they try and scratch their way back into the NFC East race against the division-rival Dallas Cowboys in Week 10 of the NFL season.
In recent weeks, Vick’s status with the Eagles has dominated the NFL headlines given his penchant for turnovers during...
Even though the Philadelphia Eagles are now are 3-5 after last week’s loss to the Saints, quarterback Michael Vick still believes his team has a chance at turning things around.
“It’s on us to get it all turned around, man. We just have to keep pushing,” Vick told Phillymag.com. “The thing is, we still have a fighting chance, we still control our own destiny, so we all...
Howard Eskin of WIP and FOX 29 tweets that Jon Gruden could be one of the options that the Eagles consider “IF” they end up moving on without Andy Reid following the season.
According to Eskin, sources have informed him that Gruden does in fact want to return coaching, despite the fact that he recently signed a new extension with ESPN.
Eskin adds that the current group of NFL...
"Dream Team."Those were the words uttered by former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Vince Young during his introductory press conference last season.The Eagles finished 8-8 and missed the playoffs."Dynasty."A similar statement announced by starting quarterback Michael Vick during the beginning of this season, declaring the team's potential despite not registering...
If the NFL rumors are true, then former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden may have an itch to leave the broadcast booth of Monday Night Football and return to the coaching sidelines. Of course, any time a head coach is rumored to be on the chopping block – especially with a team with tradition or money to spend – Gruden’s name unmistakably comes...
Michael Vick was blindsided on Monday following the Eagles loss to the Saints with questions about his brother Marcus Vick’s tweets. Michael has since clarified that there is no “WE” in his brother’s statements and that he had a talk with Marcus about how he utilizes Twitter. “You’ll never see that again,” he said yesterday. [...]
Eagles running back LeSean McCoy (illness) is not expected to practice Thursday after missing Wednesday's session as well.Fantasy Spin:McCoy is still expected to play and carry a full workload Sunday after running for 119 yards on 19 carries in Week 9, his highest total since Week 4.
The Cowboys play the Eagles in a desperation game on Sunday and there is no question that both teams are in a real similar spot. I assume everyone has hashed and rehashed all of the Michael VickAndy Reid narratives up against the Jason GarrettTony Romo types and have noted how similar the season has been in both cities.
High expectations and low performances bring the two teams...

Eskin doubled down on statement earlier today on the WIP Morning Show where he...
