BirdsFan.com - A Philadelphia Eagles...:
This is a guest post from Lucas McMillan of FootballSchedule.me.
Through the first two games of the season, Michael Vick turned the ball over six times, yet the Eagles were 2-0. However, after the Eagles’ devastating Week 3 loss against the Arizona Cardinals, in which they turned the ball over three times, it’s clear that that kind of luck simply doesn’t last.
The problem, of course, is that Michael Vick plays fast and loose with the ball. However, that’s also the primary reason he’s so successful. Much like other great gambling quarterbacks like Brett Favre and Jay Cutler, Vick will have weeks where he looks like the best offensive player in football history, and others when he just can’t get it going. He’s like a streaky three-point shooter in basketball; if he’s on, he can win the game by himself. If he’s ice cold, like he was against the Cleveland Browns in Week 1, it’s virtually impossible to overcome.

One of the most documented stories of the past calendar year has been Michael Vick’s need to cut back on turnovers. Another was the notion that he needed to regain his 2010 form.
Everyone remembers Michael Vick in 2010. He was dominant and borderline unstoppable. He led the Eagles to the playoffs where they lost in a Wild Card game to the eventual...
A great book tells a great story, but a great story does not necessarily equal out to a great book. I’ve read plenty of autobiographies in my day where the stories were good, but when they were translated to book form, the book was underwhelming, disappointing and/or flat-out trash. However, there is none of that [...]The post Book Reviews: Michael Vick’s ‘Finally Free’ appeared...
Turnover-Prone Eagles Face Giants Sunday Night
After three weeks of this NFL regular season what do we make of the Philadelphia Eagles? Well, the words “turnover-prone” or even “over-rated” come to mind.
Philly didn’t just get beat Sunday out in Arizona; the Eagles, and namely QB Michael Vick, got clobbered. The final score in points was 27-6; the final...
Michael Vick punctuated his remarkable comeback story with a sensational performance against the New York Giants in Week 15 two years ago.
Since then, Vick has been Mediocre Mike.
The Philadelphia Eagles are just 9-9 in Vick's starts since he led them to an NFC East title by bringing them back from a 21-point deficit with 8:17 remaining to beat the Giants 38-31 on Dec. 19,...

The Philadelphia Eagles have been a pass-happy offense ever since Andy Reid took the head coaching job. When he aligns himself with offensive coaches such as Marty Mornhinweg, that philosophy will only get stronger and become more evident. It was the case with Donovan McNabb, and now it is the case with Michael Vick.
The problem is, it just isn’t working. The Eagles have LeSean...
If the Eagles can’t contain the Giants D line, it will be a long day for Michael Vick on Sunday.
Sunday night’s matchup with the New York Giants will be a huge game for the Philadelphia Eagles. There is huge difference between 3-1 and 2-2 in the NFL, and a loss in this game could really be a setback for the Eagles.
This game will undoubtedly be won in the trenches. And specifically...

Andy Reid didn’t say that there is a chance that he would replace Mike Vick with Nick Foles. That’s not what he meant when he said, “We’ll evaluate as we go here.”
You misinterpreted his words. It’s just semantics, man.
That was Reid’s assertion when he met with the media on Wednesday, at least.
According to Reid, he was unaware of how is comments...
After two narrow victories in the first two weeks, the Eagles got a reality check in a 27-6 road loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
It’s still very early in the season and there is still a lot of football to be played. There are still a lot of question marks about this team. Can Michael Vick improve upon his ball security? Will Andy Reid make changes in his play calling? Will Juan...
Kendall: TE Martellus Bennett or Owen Daniels in Week 4?
Given his proneness for bonehead-like behavior, I thought Bennett would be a disaster for the Giants. The theory was sound: yes, Eli Manning likes to utilize his tight ends, but if Jerry Jones, an owner who has seen his share of immature and imprudent conduct, thought the Texas A&M product was detrimental to his team...
The defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants head into a Week 4 matchup against division rival Philadelphia on a roll. After dropping their opening game to Cowboys, the Giants have won two straight.The Eagles, on the other hand, pulled out two close games in the first two weeks, before losing on the road in Arizona last Sunday.Here are THREE BOLD PREDICTIONS for this Week 4...
The Philadelphia Eagles are matched up with the division rival New York Giants this Sunday night in Philadelphia. If you played any Eagles in last week's fantasy game, you probably were disappointed with the lackluster performance by the offense.
No touchdowns by any player as the Eagles only mustered two field goals. The Eagles have been somewhat of an enigma this...
