No longer a question of if Mike Vick will get injured but when

This is happening much too much this season. Photo via PhiladelphiaEagles.com Even the most optimistic of Eagles fans had a brutal reality call watching the Philadelphia Eagles in Sunday’s 27-6 beat down in the desert: Mike Vick isn’t going to make it through this season. With the hits he’s already taken this season, there’s no way he can play a full 16 games healthy. In...

Why use words when there’s a fitting cartoon: Eagles throttled by Cardinals 27-6

As words fail me at the moment regarding the Eagles’ 27-6 behind-whopping in the desert, I had to share this cartoon via Philly.com Sports on Facebook. Just one of many perplexing aspects of this game.   Down by devastating amounts in the first half, a cobbled together 0-line, and no success in the passing game. Why use one of the marquee running backs in the game if you have...

Philadelphia Eagles to ‘mix and match’ at receiver to replace the injured Jeremy Maclin in Week 3

Image via GCobb.com After losing center Jason Kelce for the season in their home opener against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2, the Philadelphia Eagles offense took two more hits on Friday when both King Dunlap and starting wide receiver Jeremy Maclin were ruled out of the Birds’ Week 3 game against the Arizona Cardinals. While he overcame injury last week to play most of the Baltimore...

Philadelphia Eagles – Arizona Cardinals Preview: 3 Things to Watch

The Eagles' former franchise QB. Hey, Kevin Kolb! It’s been ages! The Eagles will square off against he who was once the future of the franchise on Sunday, with John Skelton still recovering from injury.

Offseason upgrades on defense paying off for the Philadelphia Eagles

Image via Eagles Addict It defies logic—the fact that the Philadelphia Eagles have been able to overcome nine turnovers in two games to secure wins and and move to 2-0 record to start the 2012 season.  Pulling off this rare feat has been dificult—a single point secured the victory in both games, the first time this has happened in successive contests in NFL history. But as we...

Get well soon, Jason. Image via Rant Sports. Philadelphia Eagles head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder spoke to the media on Monday and  about the extent of Jason Kelce’s knee injury sustained in Sunday’s game against the Ravens.

Philadelphia Eagles Talk on WGAM ESPN Radio

I had no idea that fellow writer Kwame Fisher-Jones was such a rabid Eagles fan until I joined him to talk about the Birds Sunday morning on his show, BackPageSports, on WGAM-FM ESPN radio. We spoke about our hopes about the Eagles this season as well as what we think Mike Vick can and cannot be as a quarterback. Pair that with a fascinating comparison of Donovan McNabb with John...

3 signs of improvement from the Philadelphia Eagles offense

Just can't get enough of seeing Brent Celek hurdling Ed Reed on Sunday. The Philadelphia Eagles are 2-0 for the first time since 2004 and have proven that they are a good team. Even with nine turnovers in two games and a number of needless penalties, the Birds have still been able to prevail in both games of the 2012 season. “Good” has worked well enough so far but won...

Philadelphia Eagles off to 2-0 start despite turnovers and penalties aplenty

SWEET: Brent Celek hudles Ed Reed. GIF via Fansided.com However you want to label it, you can’t say that the Philadelphia Eagles’ 24-23 victory over the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2 was dull. Despite another game that saw too many errors and too many turnovers, the Eagles again pulled out a win to move to 2-0 for the 2012 season. The last time the Birds got off to such a good...

Philadelphia Eagles offense prepares to address concerns in Week 2

The Philadelphia Eagles face the Baltimore Ravens in their home opener on Sunday.  The usual feeling of excitement leading up to game day surrounds the team, as do a number of questions. Is there reason to worry about Mike Vick or is what we witnessed in Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns a fluke? Can the Eagles offense eliminate the errors and turn on their high-octane weapons...

As if the Eagles didn’t have enough issues with wide receiver depth with Jeremy Maclin’s hip stinger, suffered during Philadelphia’s Week 1 win against the Browns, the team saw DeSean Jackson sit out of practice on Thursday due to a hamstring injury.

Morning Muse: Have NFL defenses figured out Mike Vick?

The Philadelphia Eagles are always a hot topic in the national media and Sunday’s performance against the Browns has added more fuel to the “are they or aren’t they Super Bowl contenders” fire. Peaking in on some of the more interesting stories about the Birds: It’s an interesting question. Mike Freeman wonders if what we witnessed last Sunday wasn’t rust from Mike Vick...

Philadelphia Eagles cut their loses and cut S Jaiquawn Jarrett, re-sign WR Mardy Gilyard

The Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday cut their 2011 2nd-round draft pick, safety Jaiquawn Jarrett. They didn’t want to do it. Who wants to admit defeat on a 54th overall selection in the draft after just 17 games? The fact that he survived the final cuts to the 53-man roster tells you that. He had a disastrous showing in the first preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, missing...

Philadelphia Eagles: Andy Reid Deflects Blame from Mike Vick

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid said on Monday that quarterback Mike Vick wasn’t the only one to blame in the disappointing display of Philadelphia’s offense on Sunday. I know [QB] Michael [Vick] took the blame yesterday [but] it’s not a one man show. That’s not what it is. Everybody had a piece of this pie starting with me and the coaches. You can’t play like...

Morning Muse: Performance of the Eagles offense ‘alarming’

So many points of concerns from the Philadelphia Eagles’ ugly 17-16 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday that it’s hard to know where to begin. Mike Vick’s poor decision making? The beating he took in just one game (thank God for military-grade Kevlar vests…)? The pass/rush imbalance? And how happy should we really be about winning a game by one point given the fact that...

Philadelphia Eagles: I got your 2012 season prediction right here

Yet I do comprehend the need for something tangible heading into the regular season. In a vast expanse of the unknown, a prediction provides some context. Something to hold on...
