Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles were on the wrong side of another 2-point game, this time against the Pittsburgh Steelers, losing 16-14 on a last second field goal.
For the 4th time in 5 games, the Eagles were involved in a game that came down to the wire and decided by 2 points or less. The previous 3 times the Eagles prevailed, but also had some luck on their side.
No such luck this time.
Last week, I wrote a piece about how the Eagles are a team that has become difficult to figure out. How confident are you in this team? Some of the things I listed for reasons of optimism and pessimism were evident against the Steelers.
Therefore, this team is still a mystery.
They played well in parts yesterday, but some issues of the past and present ultimately cost them the game. What were they? Well, you’ll see that in the awards section…
First up, as usual, are the positives…or, the WTG! awards:
The defense. Nobody in particular really stood...

Another Eagles game is in the books, and so is another close outcome. However, the Eagles ended up on the wrong side of the scoreboard this game.For the first time this season, the Eagles came into the game as an underdog. Despite being the dogs, I still felt this was a very winnable game for the Birds.It’s hard to win a football game when you don’t protect the football though...
It was another close game for the Philadelphia Eagles, who lost their second game in three weeks, 16-14 to the Pittsburgh Steelers. This loss stings for a few reasons; it was a big rivalry game against the in-state rival and it was a game the Eagles really should have won. This loss puts the Eagles at 3-2, which is still good enough for first place in the division.Offense:Michael...
Eagles QB Michael Vick“The fumbles” if the football gods were not looking down on the Eagles this season, they would be 1-4 and not 3-2. The reality of a 1-4 start would have been calls for Reid to be fired and/or the benching of Michael Vick. To dispute this fiction would be difficult as the calls for Nick Foles have been heard since the pre-season.Andy Reid’s “the fumbles...
News“Something that baffles understanding and cannot be explained; a difficult problem”. That’s how the dictionary describes an enigma. That is what Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has developed into, this year particularly. The biggest question in this 2012 season after four games is why Michael Vick can’t hold onto the football. No...

Could you imagine Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy, or DeSean Jackson wearing something like this? Featured are a number of Philadelphia Eagles helmets and uniform designs. Some are interesting options that fans may like and others may strike a nerve with some fans... Read more
I know most pundits will be talking about the key fumbles committed by Michael Vick that took big points off the board...and yeah, maybe the Eagles should have proven they are better and tougher than the Steelers except for their failure to hold on to the ball in scoring situations.
But my main criticism will be focused on the disconnect between the linebackers of the Eagles...
PITTSBURGH (16) d PHILADELPHIA (14)The Headline: Steelers escape on a last second field goalThe Story: In the battle of Pennsylvania the Steelers managed to come out on top in a tough, scrappy battle. The Steelers defense handled the Eagles offense limiting them to 246 total yards on offense and forcing two Michael Vick fumbles while gaining nearly 100 more yards themselves and avoiding...
This past Sunday the Pittsburgh Steelers came out on top versus the Philadelphia Eagles 16-14. It was an intriguing game that included a lot of hard-hitting, sloppy play, and resilience from each of the two quarterbacks late in the game. Michael Vick fumbled the ball twice during the game which prevented the Eagles offense to produce more points than what they did. However...
What isn’t there to say that’s already been said about this victory for the Colts? Indianapolis played on emotion and had the heart of a champion to get the “W.”
Philadelphia: The question here is, which Eagles team will show up?Will it be the team that showed a lot of toughness in gritting out a close game against arch rival New York Giants last week, or the team that went out on the road in Week 3 and rolled over for a decent but not great Cardinals team? If the latter shows up, the Steelers will likely eat the Eagles for lunch.Key to...
