The Bye Week break is behind us now. I don't expect a miracle comeback by Mike Patterson or Jason Peters. I don't know how the heck Terrell Suggs pulled off a 6-month rehab from Achilles tendon reconstruction surgery...but I don't think anything like that is going to happen here.

Michael Vick 2013: A Different Shade Of Green

Michael Vick has certainly had an unexpected season so far. Everyone thought the only way Vick wouldn't perform is by way of injury.

Asante Samuel refuses to do a conference call with Eagles writers

Asante Samuel is set to take on his old team, the Philadelphia Eagles, as a member of the Atlanta Falcons this weekend. Samuel’s four seasons in Philly had plenty of ups and downs. He was not exactly on good terms with head coach Andy Reid when he left town, as evidenced by the shot he took at Reid on Twitter earlier this week. Reid is not the only one Asante had a problem with...
