The Philadelphia Eagles will take on the New York Giants at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday evening in what is sure to be the game of the week.With a three-way tie for first place in the NFC East, neither team will go down easy. The Eagles are coming off of a disheartening loss to the now 3-0 Arizona Cardinals, while the Giants are coming off of a huge blowout against the Carolina Panthers.Which team will come out on top? Which Michael Vick will we see? Will Nick Foles see playing time? Will the Giants' D send Vick to the sidelines?Here's what I think:1. New York Giants Record Over Three SacksGoing into Week 4, I am 6/9 in my "three bold predictions" that i do every week.To ensure at least one correct prediction this week, i'm getting an obvious one out of the way. Michael Vick will certainly be tasting quite a bit of turf come Sunday night.Last week against the Arizona Cardinals, Vick was sacked five times, and hit a ridiculous 20 times. If he can't stay...

What Can Michael Vick Do To Improve His Play?

This is a guest post from Lucas McMillan of FootballSchedule.me. Through the first two games of the season, Michael Vick turned the ball over six times, yet the Eagles were 2-0. However, after the Eagles’ devastating Week 3 loss against the Arizona Cardinals, in which they turned the ball over three times, it’s clear that that kind of luck simply doesn’t last. The problem,...

Michael Vick’s Same Old Story

Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images One of the most documented stories of the past calendar year has been Michael Vick’s need to cut back on turnovers.  Another was the notion that he needed to regain his 2010 form. Everyone remembers Michael Vick in 2010.  He was dominant and borderline unstoppable.  He led the Eagles to the playoffs where they lost in a Wild Card game to the eventual...

Turnover-Prone Eagles Face Giants Sunday Night

Turnover-Prone Eagles Face Giants Sunday Night By SBRForum.com After three weeks of this NFL regular season what do we make of the Philadelphia Eagles? Well, the words “turnover-prone” or even “over-rated” come to mind. Philly didn’t just get beat Sunday out in Arizona; the Eagles, and namely QB Michael Vick, got clobbered. The final score in points was 27-6; the final...

Book Reviews: Michael Vick’s ‘Finally Free’

A great book tells a great story, but a great story does not necessarily equal out to a great book. I’ve read plenty of autobiographies in my day where the stories were good, but when they were translated to book form, the book was underwhelming, disappointing and/or flat-out trash. However, there is none of that [...]The post Book Reviews: Michael Vick’s ‘Finally Free’ appeared...

Vick takes a beating, struggles through loss

Grass stains turned Michael Vick's white jersey into a different shade of Eagles green, underscoring the latest beating he received in a game. Vick was hit 21 times by the Arizona Cardinals in Philadelphia's 27-6 loss on Sunday. He got sacked five times and lost two more fumbles, including one that was returned 93 yards for a touchdown. The three-time Pro Bowl quarterback...

Is Michael Vick’s starting job in jeopardy?

Philadelphia Eagles starting QB Michael Vick has been atrocious this season, for lack of a better term. Despite the Eagles current 2-1 record, Vick’s poor play and tendency of turnovers has put them at risk to lose more games than win them. So far this season, Vick has 9 turnovers (6 interceptions, 3 lost fumbles) and [...]

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. When he aligns himself with offensive coaches such as Marty Mornhinweg, that philosophy will only get stronger and become more evident. It was the case with Donovan McNabb, and now it is the case with Michael Vick. The problem is, it just isn’t working. The Eagles have LeSean...

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. That’s not what he meant when he said, “We’ll evaluate as we go here.” You misinterpreted his words. It’s just semantics, man. That was Reid’s assertion when he met with the media on Wednesday, at least. According to Reid, he was unaware of how is comments...

Eagles will have to contain Giants potent D Line

If the Eagles can’t contain the Giants D line, it will be a long day for Michael Vick on Sunday. Sunday night’s matchup with the New York Giants will be a huge game for the Philadelphia Eagles. There is huge difference between 3-1 and 2-2 in the NFL, and a loss in this game could really be a setback for the Eagles. This game will undoubtedly be won in the trenches. And specifically...

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...

Cardinals flying high behind aggressive defense

Arizona's offense has limited mistakes and its special teams have come up with some big plays. The big reason the Cardinals are off to their best start in 38 years? Their dominating defense. Led by a powerful front line and fast, attacking linebackers, Arizona has the NFL's best scoring defense, allowing two touchdowns through the first three games. The Cardinals held...

Philadelphia Eagles week four fantasy preview

The Philadelphia Eagles are matched up with the division rival New York Giants this Sunday night in Philadelphia.  If you played any Eagles in last week's fantasy game, you probably were disappointed with the lackluster performance by the offense.   No touchdowns by any player as the Eagles only mustered two field goals.  The Eagles have been somewhat of an enigma this...
