The Penalty Flag:
Without a doubt the Philadelphia Eagles are the most desperate 3-3 team the NFL has seen in recent memory. From QB turnovers to coaching turmoil, this Eagles team seems to be one bad outing away from a serious shakeup that could include the firing of head coach Andy Reid and or benching of quarterback Michael Vick. It’s a volatile situation that has clearly fallen on the shoulders of Coach Reid and Vick. Vick needs to play better or Reid will be forced to bench him in favor of rookie Nick Foles. The problem with such a move is that when Foles struggles, as most rookie QBs do, Reid will face the dilemma of which quarterback gives the Eagles the best chance to win and run the risk of a dividing the locker room. On Monday, Vick didn’t seem too concerned about losing his starting job.… Read more

With the Eagles having their bye week last Sunday and sitting with record of 3-3, we weren’t subjected to another 4th quarter collapse or any post-game news conferences having to explain what went wrong. We tune in hoping to hear the participants confirm what we just witnessed on the field. The problem with that is, when listening to...
This week is going to be, to put it mildly, interesting.
The Eagles are coming off a bye week in which Andy Reid replaced his DC and there are widespread rumors of problems in the entire front office.
The Falcons, also coming off a bye, are the only remaining undefeated team.
Andy Reid has never lost the game the week after the bye, including the infamously disastrous 2005 season...
Like a lot of NFL fans, I am a big fan of the Madden NFL video game franchise. I recently let go of my copy of Madden 2004 that I had stubbornly held onto for eight years. Falcons fans everywhere remember the significance of that edition of Madden: Michael Vick was on the cover and he was wearing a Falcons jersey. Remember how good that felt? Everyone had to give the Falcons respect...
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...
The Philadelphia Eagles have become the most difficult team to predict in the NFL. They have the talent to beat anyone, but they also have the ability to lose to just about anyone. Whether it’s coaching blunders, turnovers or just finding new ways to lose, this team has a way of blowing games they should win. Only one of their six games this season have been decided by more than...
The Eagles reconvened from their bye week Monday, and though practice was closed, indications are nothing changed on the team's offensive line, which is a mild surprise, in the wake of a dreadful performance against the Lions in the last outing.
Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, who remains the starter despite 13 turnovers in six games, said he never thought he might be replaced...
Eagles head coach Andy Reid believes that there is a chance that left tackle Jason Peters could play this season, according to Phillymag.
Peters season was expected to be lost after tearing his Achilles tendon twice in the offseason, but an early return for Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs after suffering the same injury has brought about hope for the offensive...
Since the firing of former Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Juan Castillo last week, we’ve been waiting for the corresponding shoe to drop on offense.

The first half of the season is coming to an end, and a few key points have become abundantly clear:
Mike Vick is done.
Tom Caughlin hates fumblers.
Jerry Jones is the next Al Davis (in the bad way).
RG3 will have the shortest, most exciting NFL career.
Atlanta is finally good. For real.
Cam Newton isn’t the next RG3.
Having a coach is kind of important.
