Michael Vick has been battered and beaten thus far in the season, and yet the media reacts as if the Eagles are 0-3! Philadelphia is still sitting pretty at 2-1, and Nick Foles is more than a capable backup behind Vick in case anything goes wrong. Despite the dangerous southpaw that is often considered an injured player waiting to happen, Vick and the Eagles have nothing to be depressed about. This team is standing right where I envisioned them coming into the season, and if the turnovers can be avoided then this team will be ready for January. LeSean McCoy is not going bananas like some had planned, but the offensive line lost their starting center (Jason Kelce) and their left tackle (). Things have not gone as planned heading into the season since they were dinged up a bit before everything got underway, but all is not lost.

NFL Rumors: Marty Mornhinweg Allowing Michael Vick To Make Too Many Mistakes For Eagles?

The Philadelphia Eagles have been a pass-happy offense ever since Andy Reid took the head coaching job.

Andy Reid does his best to diffuse Philadelphia Eagles’ latest quarterback controversy

Image via PhilaPhans.com Andy Reid didn’t say that there is a chance that he would replace Mike Vick with Nick Foles.

Buy Vick, sell Griffin III

Kendall: TE Martellus Bennett or Owen Daniels in Week 4? Given his proneness for bonehead-like behavior, I thought Bennett would be a disaster for the Giants. The theory was sound: yes, Eli Manning likes to utilize his tight ends, but if Jerry Jones, an owner who has seen his share of immature and imprudent conduct, thought the Texas A&M product was detrimental to his team...
