Found November 03, 2012 on The Penalty Flag:
What a difference a month makes in the NFL.  Just five short weeks ago the Philadelphia Eagles were 3-1 with wins over the Baltimore Ravens and the New York Giants.  The Eagles seemed rejuvenated and determined to avenge their bust of a season in 2011.  Unfortunately, as fate would have it, the Eagles went winless in October and now find themselves in crisis management mode.  Fired was defensive coordinator Juan Castillo and after a subsequent loss coming off their bye week, that dreaded shadow of doubt looms larger than ever over the futures of head coach Andy Reid and starting quarterback Michael Vick.  Both appear as if they are on a week by week tenure as their days in Philly have become outwardly numbered.… Read more

Philadelphia Eagles: Vick to keep starting job

“Michael Vick was our quarterback, is our quarterback, and will be our quarterback.” Those were the words of Eagles coach Andy Reid Thursday as he addressed the media for the first time this week.

NFL Rumors: Will Monday Night Football Game Be Final Time Philadelphia Eagles Start Michael Vick?

Michael Vick will be the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles when they hit the road for a Monday Night Football game against the New Orleans Saints in a must win game for both teams.

NFL Rumors: Michael Vick Must Man Up And Stop Blaming Media For Philadelphia Eagles Woes

Michael Vick is pointing a finger at the media for the Philadelphia Eagles’ woes throughout the 2012 NFL season. The Eagles are a disappointing 3-4 this season because of the media. It has nothing to do with the poor play calling of Andy Reid. It has nothing to do with all of Vick’s interceptions and fumbles and poor decisions. It has nothing to do with an overrated defense....

Philadelphia Eagles at New Orleans Saints: Week 9 NFL Pick

Philadelphia Eagles (3-4) at New Orleans Saints (2-5) Andy Reid’s perfect 13-0 career record off the bye is gone. The Eagles are 3-4 and the sky is falling in Philadelphia.

2 quarterbacks, 2 increasingly desperate teams

Michael Vick and Drew Brees came into the NFL the same year. Now, they're in the same predicament. Both are the quarterbacks of increasingly desperate teams, the season teetering on the edge of collapse. Brees has essentially become a one-man show for the New Orleans Saints (2-5), who are plagued by a historically leaky defense and anemic running game. For Vick, the stakes...

Saints Nation: Scouting the Eagles

I have to admit that it gets a little old scouting other teams when no matter who the opponent is the result is getting gashed 500+ yards regardless.

As many fantasy owners have come to accept, 2012 has not been the year to own Philadelphia Eagles players on your team.
