Vick got one more in him?
First of all my condolences to all the Eagle fans on their 2012-13 season, I really didn’t expect things to get this bad. As a matter of fact I actually picked the Eagles to win this division when I did the season previews for this site. Well after last nights loss to the Panthers in prime-time the Eagles fans are wondering what do we go from here?
Anybody wanna get Donovan on the phone?
End of a Era
Two things the we are sure will happen is that Mike Vick and Andy Reid will be gone. For Reid it will be the end of a era and his tenure as Eagles coach will always be respected. He never brought the city a championship but each year he was on the sidelines this Eagles team was one of the top teams in the league. It’s the circle of life in the NFL and it’s just time for him to go. No need to hang your head Andy you had a good run.
One thing that is lost in all this Andy Reid talk is the fact that he went into this year trying to coach after the death of his son. The NFL is a no excuses league but if there was ever a time to throw one in there … I’m just saying. The work had to be therapeutic for him and a way for him to take his mind off his son but you can’t just punch the clock and act like the death of your son isn’t going to effect your work. Couple that with some injuries and just a bad execution and you have the implosion that is the 2012 Eagles.
One More Chapter for Vick?
How will this story end for Mike Vick? … After the rise and the fall and then the rise again surely this can’t be how Mike Vick leaves the game. From the Mike Vick experience to him running for his life in Philly is not how this story is supposed to end. Going into the season I saw the combination of McCoy, D.Jackson, and Maclin as a pretty explosive unit and thought they would do work to the tune of at least 10-6. Maybe next year i’ll just keep my predictions to myself. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong and it didn’t help that after a few games his offensive line was as strong as one ply toilet paper.
The Eagles would have been better off just going out there with no offensive lineman and asking the d-linemen to count to 5 mississippi before they rushed. He didn’t stand a chance .. and then the concussions came. From the hits that I saw I’m sure he had more than just that one that put him on the bench.
So where do we go from here?
I took a look at all the teams in the leagues and if Vick still wanted to start for a NFL team I got 3 possible destinations for him. Kansas City Chiefs, Arizona Cardinals and Oakland Raiders are all places he could be signed and be the unquestioned starter. There are several other teams he could go and be a backup but Mike wants to start.
Chiefs and Raiders are two teams Mike could go to if he just wanted to get one last paycheck. He wouldn’t win but he would start and that is probably the end of it. The best situation for him would be Arizona is has major QB issues. It would be weird for him to follow Kolb there and him being the reason they cut him. .. Actually that would be pretty funny. In Arizona you have a decent defense, a good running game and a stud wide receiver that is just wasting away out there. If I’m Vick I’m telling my agent that is the place I want to be.
Eagles fan you’ve had a good run of being a competitive ball club but now it’s time to blow that thing up like you did that old piece of crap stadium you used to play in. However, there is some good new for you.
You only have to play 6 more games and it will all be over.

This isn’t a surprise at all. I’m sure the Eagles will figure...
Cam Newton has been compared to Michael Vick ever since he burst onto the scene at Auburn and led the Tigers to a national championship. While many will argue that their comparisons are race related, Newton understands that the comparison stems mostly from the fact that both quarterbacks can make plays with their arm and their legs. Newton says that dual-threat ability has its benefits...
Some guy named Rotten Al came up with this genius song called, “My Name is Vick.” Oh and did I mention he had it animated?!?!
The Andy Reid guest spot should put this automatically in the best collaboration of the year category.
Jaws is a staunch supporter of tough love. None of this puppy love, dog-gonnit!
According to a spokesman for UNEQUAL Technologies, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will don a prototype product under his helmet to ward off concussions if or when he is cleared to return to the field. The cap is called "The Dome," and it's similar to the helmet liner that players such as Ryan Clark of the Pittsburgh Steelers wear.

Eagles head coach Andy Reid mentioned that QB Michael Vick still hasnt been cleared from a concussion that he suffered a few weeks ago.
If the young guys are available to play, were going to put them in and play them, Reid said. If thats the situation, Im not going to hesitate to do that. But well see how things go here as we continue to roll on.
WHERE EAGLES DARE
Just one year removed from an 18-sack campaign, the Eagles have released their All-Pro pass rusher, who had only 5.5 sacks through 11 games this season.
Philadelphia quarterback Michael Vick and running back LeSean McCoy are inactive for the Eagles' game against Carolina because of concussions.
Rookies Nick Foles and Bryce Brown will start in place of Vick and McCoy on Monday night. Foles will make his second career start at quarterback, and Brown his first at tailback.
Vick was injured against Dallas on Nov. 11 and didn'...
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is preparing for his return. He spent Tuesday night getting sized for a protective skull cap that he will wear under his helmet to help protect him from suffering another concussion. Vick met with Unequal Technology Corporation CEO Rob Vito to be fitted for their new "dome" device Click link below to read more!
Philadelphia Eagles fans seem to have reached their boiling point with their team, and in particular head coach Andy Reid. After a 3-1 start to a 2012 season that many expected to be a successful one, the Eagles have lost seven straight games. Michael Vick has been sidelined with a concussion, but he had played horribly before going down anyway. Sitting at 3-8 and poised to miss...
We’re told by Philly fans that this is what happens when you buy your football jersey in the parking lot before a game. Anyway, this guy is one day closer to no Andy Reid, no Michael Vick, and a top-5 draft pick. Carolina walked into the Linc on Monday Night Football and won, 30-22, which ties Philly with Carolina for the worst record in the NFC.
As for your...
Meet Dexter, a dog who loves the Washington Redskins so much that he will refuse dog treats if they are from the Dallas Cowboys. That’s … uh, that’s the clip. Somebody trained their dog to refuse food if it comes from a rival football team. Which it doesn’t. But he’s named after Dexter Manley and he’s got a dog brain, so what are you going to doMy favorite part of...
With a rookie quarterback and a running back making his first start since high school, the Philadelphia Eagles will try for their first win in two months.
No wonder even the Carolina Panthers (2-8) are favored on the road.

The Eagles, already without Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy, will be without DeSean Jackson for the remainder of the season. The speedster fractured his ribs on MNF against the Panthers and was placed on IR earlier today.
As odd as this sounds, this may help fantasy owners. You are no longer tied to playing (or rostering for that matter) the struggling wideout. That being said, his...
