Philly Sports World Fantasy Week 8
Game of the week, our Eagles against the undefeated Falcons. The Eagles and Mike Vick are in desperate need for a win and history is on their side. Andy Reid is 13-0 coming out of bye weeks so sticking with history, I am taking the Eagles in a close game, 23-17.
Must starts> Brent Celek has been quiet the past few games and the Eagles will need a big game from their tight-end if they are to win, 90 yards and a touchdown from Celek.
Jason Hanson> The Lions are struggling and this week will not get any better against a tough Seahawk defense. A game of field-goals, Hanson will get 4 in a losing effort.
SIT> Matthew Stafford is becoming one of the biggest disappointments of the season. The Seahawks will put pressure on him all game forcing 3 interceptions.
DeSean Jackson> The new contract has not equated into production as Jackson will continue with another small performance officially he has become a number 3 fantasy receiver.

Players have been disappointing their teammates and fans since long before you or I were born. The difference in todays game is the amount of money some of these disappointments are making. Players like Mario Williams and Michael Vick are making tens of millions of dollars and trapping their team under the weight of their contract. So, if these players don't perform they...
Michael Vick said after the Philadelphia Eagles lost to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday that the team is considering a change at quarterback.
Eagles head coach Andy Reid hardly gave Vick a vote of confidence leading up to the team’s Week 8 game against the unbeaten Falcons, saying the former MVP contender was the team’s quarterback “as of today.” Looks like that status is even...
Eagles quarterback Michael Vick said coach Andy Reid is considering benching him for Nick Foles following Philadelphia's loss against the Falcons Sunday.Fantasy Spin:It's impossible to predict what Foles would do as a starter but Philadelphia has plenty of weapons and a date with New Orleans next week so he's worth a flier if Reid decides to make the change.
This Sunday, the Falcons (6-0) travel North to Philadelphia to face the Eagles (3-3). Both teams are coming off byes and are looking to improve their records.The Eagles are a difficult team to figure out.

The ball will be wet, the field will be wet, the wind will be blowing and that environment will make it harder to throw the football down the field. Andy...
The "Fire Andy" chants were a bit more subdued Sunday, a product of approaching Hurricane Sandy rather than the product Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid put on the field in a 30-17 loss to the undefeated Atlanta Falcons.
This storm will pass by midweek. Reid's future here has a bit more staying power, although ownership has forecasted a regime change after...

Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles face another tough test in Week 8 when they take on the unbeaten Atlanta Falcons in Battle of the Birds Part II. If the defense can take away the middle of the field, they’ll not only win the game, but they’ll cover the one-point spread on the game as provided by SportsBetting.ag.
The Falcons have a dynamic, well...
The 6-0 Falcons play the 3-3 Eagles today at the Linc and all eyes will be on Hurricane Sandy. The approaching storm could and should play a big part in todays matchup with wind gusts expected to reach 35 mph. As we all know, turnovers have plagued the Eagles and Michael Vick all season. Without them, todays game could have been hyped as two 6-0 teams battling for the NFC’s top...
Linebacker Casey Matthews hinted at what he thought of Juan Castillo’s coaching when he summed up the first meeting of the Philadelphia Eagle defense in the Todd Bowles era on Monday: “We’re not going to be predictable anymore.”
Brandon Graham took those comments further on Wednesday by blaming Castillo for the Eagles defensive woes in the games of which he presided. Graham...
NewsTags: Brent CelekMatt RyanMichael VickThe Eagles organization was out-played and out-coached today by the Atlanta Falcons. There’s no other way to explain what Atlanta did to Andy Reid and his ball club. This was a total domination by the Falcons. They controlled the football for nearly the entire first half and converted...
The Falcons loomed as the only unbeaten team remaining in the NFL, but they entered Sunday's game at Philadelphia as an underdog.
Perception lurked greater than reality: The Eagles as NFC heavyweight, having gained a berth to the conference championship game five times in head coach Andy Reid's first 13 seasons; the Falcons as pretender, having gone 0-3 in the playoffs in...
Apparently Asante tried to talk to his old head coach, Andy Reid, after the game but Big Red ignored him. Samuel didn’t like it and wondered aloud if it was because of the dancing Samuel and his teammates were doing on the sideline late in the win. He then goes on to demonstrate said dancing.
