I can’t wait to listen to sports talk radio today here in Philadelphia, as I’m sure it will be a blood-bath calling for the firing of Andy Reid, the benching of Michael Vick and a slew of other venomous demands.Last night’s game played right into everything that has been said about the Eagles this season.We saw issues in the red zone for Philadelphia while we saw a passing attack from Drew Brees that is as flawless as any in the history of the game.A few things really stood out to me, and it’s not what you would think. Here are five things we learned.Its Not All Michael Vick’s FaultLet me repeat that: ITS NOT ALL MICHAEL VICK’S FAULT!Over and over again I hear calls for Vick’s benching, as if it is a deserved punishment for an interception or a fumble.

Saints 28, Eagles 13

NEW ORLEANS -- So much for players-only meetings.

Saints Nation: Defensive and Special Teams Player Grades vs. Eagles

If you had told me before the game that the Saints would sack Michael Vick 7 times and hold the Eagles to 7 points, I would have laughed in your face. If you told me they'd yield 447 yards, I'd absolutely believe you. If you told me both would happen, I'd probably seek to have you institutionalized. But that's exactly what happened oddly enough. Make no mistake, the...

Brees threw two touchdown passes, extending his NFL record streak to 51 games, and Patrick Robinson...

Each time the two teams meet, there is always something on the line.Last year, the Cowboys playoff spot counted on a win in Week 16; unfortunately they lost after Tony Romo went down early on with a hand injury.This year, they will play for their playoff lives.Sitting at 3-5, neither...
