Jamaal Jackson, who was released by the Philadelphia Eagles earlier this year after losing his job as starting center to Jason Kelce in the 2011 season, wasn’t sure if he wanted to continue in the NFL. In fact, he was so unsure as to how he wanted to proceed that he put a stop to a workout he was having with the New York Giants, saying to head coach Tom Coughlin, ” ‘He just said, ‘Coach, I just don’t feel like my heart is in it.’” After his revelation with the Giants, Jackson told the Wilmington News-Journal’s Geoff Mosher that he hadn’t made a definitive decision about his retirement, but that his future health would play a big role in the decision. “My biggest thing, I always wanted to be able to walk away, not crawl away.” At the time of that interview, which was published on May 12, Jackson said he expected to make a decision in about a week.

Mike Vick unimpressed by the opinions of his peers

Philadelphia Eagles’ quarterback Mike Vick was recently asked about the NFL’s 2012 Top 100 list, a yearly ranking of the 100 best players in the league as picked by the players in the NFL. This season, Vick landed at a surprisingly low 70th spot, falling squarely between 49ers corner Carlos Rogers, and Vick’s big play [...]

Michael Vick says this is the “most complete” team he’s been on

Getty Images Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick joined  Mike Missanelli on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia (via SportsRadioInterviews) and was asked about a tweet that he posted this morning that said, ” Super Bowl that is all.” “We just feel like we’re in a position to accomplish a lot, said Vick.  ”That’s what we wanna do. And I think if you don’t...

With Andy Reid in Charge, Opportunity for the Eagles Awaits

Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach Andy Reid now runs the show in town. A lot of good can come of that, even if the fans don't think so. I couldn’t tell you if there was a power struggle that led to the Philadelphia Eagles President Joe Banner stepping down. Some say there was, some deny it vehemently. I’m not sure in the end that it really matters. The only thing that does matter...

Philadelphia Eagles: Time to Say Goodbye to Joe Banner

Handout/Getty Images The news came bright and early Thursday morning that Joe Banner’s time with the Philadelphia Eagles had come to an end.  I saw the news from Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer via twitter about 90 seconds after I opened my eyes that day. On a normal day I may have sprinted to my computer to write my thoughts about it, but I was covering the French...

Michael Vick says it’s a ‘joke’ he’s ranked 70th on the NFL’s Top 100 Players list

The NFL Network recently released a portion of its Top 100 Players of 2012 list, and you know what that means — absolutely nothing. The list is merely a topic for fans, analysts and bloggers like us to analyze and interpret. For players, it can serve as either a pat on the back or a motivational tool. After being ranked No. 70 on this year’s list, Michael Vick will be using for...

Demetress Bell will have to compete for Eagles left tackle job

When Jason Peters, one of the top offensive tackles in the league, tore his Achilles in March, the Eagles signed Demetress Bell to replace him at left tackle, paying him 3.25 million to do so. Bell is a talented left tackle when healthy, but has only made it through more than 8 games once in his 4 year career, but in a weak offensive tackle class, he was the best option. However...

Michael Vick calls the NFL’s Top 100 a joke after his ranking

Alas, another player thinking this NFL Top 100 thing is a joke. But, I do have to give them credit, they make these rankings based off of the players that supposedly vote, and make them a list out of it. It’s dumb, but it gets fans and players going on it, thus bringing in more views and discussion. Today on 97.5 the fanatic, Eagles QB Michael Vick sat down and talked with Mike...

Michael Vick Continues to Love Himself, Not NFL Top 100

I’ve tried the past five years to keep my criticism of Michael Vick in check. People constantly get onto me for saying that the guy “made a mistake” and he “paid his debt to society” and that he earned his second chance and I should get on board with that. As a retired breeder and owner of multiple Doberman Pinscher’s, I’m sorry but that was just something I could...
