Mike Vick. Not changin’. Image via NJ.com
The news that broke one week ago today–that Mike Vick had restructured his deal to extend his stay with the Philadelphia Eagles–was met by strong reaction by the team’s fans. As usual when Vick is concerned, emotions fell on opposite sides of the spectrum.
Toss out Vick along with Andy Reid and the dishwater. If we are truly in rebuilding mode, let’s start with something new. Let’s see what we have in Nick Foles.
Conversely, there are those who blame Reid and Marty Morhinweg and their horrific play calling as well as a cobbled-together offensive line in Vick’s recent struggles with the Birds. Philadelphia signed him because of what makes him dynamic, then wanted him to turn into something that he’s not. Let Vick be Vick! With a healthy o-line and more balance with the run game, Vick can help this team to succeed.
The debate will continue to rage this offseason among fans, but one thing we know about Vick–sooner or later he lets you know exac...

Vick said he plans on pushing himself and his teammates to improve their record in the upcoming season.
After the Philadelphia Eagles were blown out in their season finale, and Andy Reid was fired, Michael Vick blasted his Eagles teammates for “quitting, and their lack of desire.”
Vick I assume thought his time with the Eagles was over, and he was just fed up with the lack of heart around him. Fast forward about a month and a half.
The Eagles have a new coach, new system, and...
According to Geoff Mosher of CSNPhilly.com, the Eagles won’t use their franchise tag this offseason to retain cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who will hit free agency on March 12th. The tag number for cornerbacks is expected to be around $10.7 million, which would be an awfully high salary given Rodgers-Cromartie’s inconsistencies since being acquired two offseasons...
Michael Vick is still a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. Despite the speculation and heavy criticism, the 32-year-old quarterback retains a spot on the roster and, thanks to the hiring of read-option guru Chip Kelly, could very well be the starter when September rolls around.

Geoff Mosher of CSN Philly he’s been informed that the Philadelphia Eagles have no intention of using their franchise tag this offseason.
Mosher adds that CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is only player they would even consider.
Rodgers-Cromartie, 26, is set to become an unrestricted free agent in the next few weeks, but applying their franchise tag to him would run the Eagles ...
Its clear that one of Chip Kellys goals is to create a competitive environment where every player on the Eagles roster feels like he has a chance to win a spot and make an impact.
So it should come as no surprise that newly-signed quarterback Dennis Dixon believes hes very much in the mix to be the Birds starting quarterback.
From my understanding, the job is open...
The Philadelphia Eagles have the fourth overall pick in the upcoming 2013 NFL Draft. The teams with the best record get the top picks right? Yeah, lets just go with that. All jokes aside, the Eagles were a sickening team to watch last season in all three phases of the game. Whether it was Michael Vick throwing pinpoint accurate passes to the other team, Bryce Brown running for 170...
