Why Eagles coach Andy Reid said something that makes him the scariest kind of coach

The Eagles lost yesterday to the Cardinals, turning the ball over three times. They are now second-to-last in turnover margin, despite being 2-1. And, as I mentioned in this week’s Rap Sheet Rundown, they need more from QB Michael Vick. The extent they are willing to go to get Vick to pull himself together and play smarter is staggering. It is something I would not have predicted. And it tells you all you need to know about coach Andy Reid this year. Reid told reporters earlier today that, while he supports Vick, he wasn’t ready to rule out a possible competition with rookie Nick Foles. “We’ll evaluate it as we go,” Reid said. Forgive yourself if you gave a WHAT?! […]

Reactions and reflections after a couple days spent with the Philadelphia Eagles…

The week of work and collection has come to an end, as we brace ourselves for Sunday. Wednesday, I was in Baltimore with the Ravens. Then, Thursday and Friday, I was in Philly with the Eagles. As for what I learned, you’ll see a lot of that on NFL Network’s First on the Field and GameDay Morning. But want a few quick thoughts? Let’s go… – It was a rough day for Eagles QB Michael Vick  against the Browns, one that included four interceptions. The consensus seems to be that there were mistakes he made mentally, not physically. Trusting his eyes and knowing what he’s looking at will be important as he moves forward against the active Ravens front. But Vick, who […]

The most underrated thing about Eagles QB Michael Vick has nothing to do with anything on the field

Hello from Philadelphia, where I’ve spent the day. The Eagles practiced, and there was a whole bunch of interviews. Gearing up for Sunday’s Eagles-Ravens game. It’s safe to say, it wasn’t a fantastic experience for the Eagles — Iggles — last week. Sure, sure, they did win, but they looked ugly doing it. QB Michael Vick threw four interceptions, which tends to overshadow the game-winning drive against the Browns. With that in mind, two things I’ve realized after spending a bunch of time here. One, Vick has an offensive coordinator in Marty Mornhinweg who does a fantastic job keeping Vick focused on what he needs to be focused on. And two, Vick handled criticism as well as anyone. The first thing: Mornhinweg […]

Michael Vick’s thumb injury shouldn’t worry Eagles

When Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick jogged off the field in Thursday’s preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, shaking his hand after hitting it on teammate Jason Kelce‘s helmet, a collective groan echoed from Eagles Nation.

NFL.com and NFL Network’s Kimberly Jones later reported that X-rays taken on Vick’s thumb were negative.  The question this week on radio shows and in the blogosphere will be if Vick should sit out next Monday’s matchup with the New England Patriots and how much he should play the rest of the preseason.

Recapping this road trip: The Philadelphia edition

Let me say upfront that I embrace any opportunity to travel around and see another team and learn about them and write stuff and go on TV to talk about it. It’s the job, it’s fun, and it’s all good. But when I saw Philadelphia on my docket for this week, I smiled a little more than normal. Ah, the cheeseteak. My favorite road food in an epic grudge match with etouffee of New Orleans. So, another chance to have a cheesesteak? I’ll take it. Oh, I also saw the Eagles practice (and wrote this article and said this on TV). Want some highlights of my trip to Philly? – Let’s start with the important stuff. I’ve been to Pat’s, […]
