The Penalty Flag:
The Baltimore Ravens blew a 10 point halftime lead over the Philadelphia Eagles to fall to 1-1 on the year in a frustrating road loss. Michael Vick rushed for a touchdown with just under two-minutes remaining in the game to give the Eagles a 24-23 lead.
Joe Flacco, who was simply awful in the second half, was not able to lead the Ravens to a game winning drive. Instead he missed a wide-open Dennis Pitta on 3rd and 2 and on the following play was nowhere near his target, thus ending the game.
In what many pundits claimed could be a possible Super Bowl preview, the Eagles proved to be the better team despite four turnovers and numerous penalties.… Read more

BETTER SHAPE UP
After putting together one of the worst games of his career in Week 1, there are reportedly indications that Michael Vick's start quarterback job is no guaranteed.
QUOTH THE RAVEN
The Ravens quarterback has seen enough and following a questionably called game against the Eagles, Joe Flacco said the replacement refs are "affecting the integrity of the game."
Michael Vick scored on a 1-yard TD run with 1:55 left, helping the Philadelphia Eagles overcome a slew of turnovers to beat the Baltimore Ravens 24-23 on Sunday.
Rookie kicker Justin Tucker made field goals of 56, 51 and 48 yards for the Ravens, but Joe Flacco couldn't get Baltimore (1-1) in his range in the final minute.

Joe Flacco is clearly not thrilled by the loss that his Baltimore Ravens endured today, letting the Eagles slip past them by one point in a 24-23 loss.
The Ravens had a chance to win, and a touchdown taken away when a questionable flag was thrown for offensive pass interference on what would have been a 25 yard touchdown pass to Jacoby Jones.

Eagles vs. Cardinals Week 3 Preview
Both the Eagles and Cardinals are feeling good about themselves after posting impressive victories last weekend. Can Philadelphia keep momentum high with a win over Arizona in Week 3?
So that’s now two Eagles wins to start the season, albeit two wins that were both decided by a solitary point.
A week after escaping with a 17-16...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Baltimore Ravens and quarterback Joe Flacco have now put their contract talks on hold until the offseason.
Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco and the Ravens were close to finalizing a long-term contract extension the first week of August before talks were tabled, according to league sources.
But they were not just tabled; they essentially were...
Joe Flacco didn’t have a banner second half. It cost the Ravens (1-1) the game.
Philadelphia (2-0) drove down the field to score a touchdown with a little less than two minutes to go. Mike Vick led the Eagles to their last score of the game and it was the decisive score.
Flacco struggled to convert third downs and appeared to be a little too pass happy in the Ravens 24-23 loss...
The replacement referees definitely regressed in the NFL’s main body of Week Two if you go by the volume of bad calls and incidents that brought a variety of games to a complete and utter standstill.
The truth is that we have been here before.

After another tough battle filled with costly turnovers, Michael Vick led the Eagles to their second straight comeback 4th quarter win over the Baltimore Ravens. Deep into the 4th quarter, the Eagles trailed the Ravens 23-17 before the offense took the field for their final drive of the game and last chance to put the Birds on top. After quick completions to Brent Celek and Clay...
This was a blood bath... it reminded me of a quote from an ancient Greek general named Pyyrhrus, who stated after winning a battle where he lost half his army in the process--- “Another victory like this, and we’re done for.”There were many casualties and much collateral damage to both the Eagles and the Ravens. Jason Kelce is probably out for the season with a severe knee...
According to ProFootballWeekly.com, the Philadelphia are preparing rookie quarterback Nick Foles to step in, if Michael Vick struggles or gets injured.
“Is Andy Reid secretly getting rookie QB Nick Foles ready in case Michael Vick crumbles? League spies say that alarm bells sounded loudly when Reid (for the first time in 14 years in Philly) abruptly made practice off limits to...
We are witnessing the first 2-0 start since 2004, two outstanding defensive displays, and the ablility to win games late. Except for turnovers and penalties, our Philadelphia Eagles gave us reasons for optimism against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. We saw big time use of the tight end Brent Celek, a balanced run and passing attack, sharp passing by Michael Vick, and solid...
So far this year, if there is one thing that is obvious, it is that nothing is guaranteed. Though the Philadelphia Eagles may have nine turnovers in two games, they still sit atop the NFC East at 2-0. The Cardinals are perhaps more lucky to be 2-0 than the Eagles. The Cards defeated the Patriots last Sunday for the first time in 20 years thanks to a muffed kick by Stephen Gostkowski...
'A' FOR EFFORT
After catching a touchdown pass from Joe Flacco, Jacoby Jones decided to give the home crowd in Philadelphia a postgame show. Jacoby Jones did a TD celebration which we have seen Chris Johnson pull off in the past, which seems quite complicated. The 21-yard touchdown pass to Jacoby Jones put the Ravens up 14-7 with 8:32 left to play in first half. Interesting note, Jones Nnamdi...
Last week: 14 (+1)
The Ravens are overrated. We’ll see it this weekend. They rank just 12th in yards per play differential, despite playing one of their games against a banged up Bengals team that I think is one of the worst in the league. They clearly miss Terrell Suggs and others defensively. Only 5 teams have given up more yards than they have. Joe Flacco had a good...
