There are few things about the NFL more difficult to predict than the Pro Bowl. Training camps haven’t started yet but it’s never too early to speculate how the season will play out.

Eagles training camp previewTRAINING CAMP GOALS 1. Determine the identity of their No. 2 quarterback. Michael Vick will head into the season as the team's starter. But Vick has missed three games in each of the last two seasons, and his reckless style of play and body type -- he's a hair under 6-0 and weighs just 210 pounds -- makes it unlikely he'll make it to the...

Those hoping for a repeat performance from Comeback Player of the Year Michael Vick in 2011 were a tad disappointed.
After playing himself into Kevin Kolb’s starting role in 2010, leading the Eagles to their third straight playoff appearance, Vick would go 3-6 in his first nine games in 2011, throwing as many touchdowns (11) as he did interceptions. Despite averaging...
