Being the quarterback, it goes without saying that Michael Vick will be the biggest key to success for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2012. However, he is also surrounded by the best supporting cast on offense during the Andy Reid era.
Players like DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, LeSean McCoy and Brent Celek all make life easier on a quarterback and Vick needs to utilize them to the fullest extent. But, just how good are they? And are they the only weapons at his disposal?

The not-so-good part is that the players were ranked far lower this year than last. But given the Eagles 8-8 season in 2011, that is hardly a surprise.

It was sad seeing a man with little maturity and no sense of responsibility in the midst of ruining the lives four innocent children.
Four children by four different women. You have to ask questions about the decision-making abilities of all involved, especially baby mamas 3 and 4, but in the end, it’s...
