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?! […]

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 […]
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 […]

The 2012 season is just days away from kicking off and this looks like an exciting season with a lot of big-name rookies expected to make a huge impact. But you can’t talk about those rookies without the inevitable comparisons. Here’s a look at some of the top rookies and how they compare to their contemporaries.
Will Dallas Cowboys receiver Kevin Ogletree become this year’s Laurent Robinson in fantasy football?
Can Michael Vick return to his 2010 production levels, or is it safer to select Philip Rivers in fantasy football drafts?
The Tennessee Titans will go with Jake Locker as their starting quarterback in 2012, our Michael Lombardi reports. But let’s cut to the chase; what does this mean for his fantasy value.
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.
Vince Young could be battling for his final chance at a future in the NFL.
DeSean Jackson held out last season, and he doesn’t recommend it.

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning caused a stir prior to last season when he told the world he was an elite quarterback. Eli, of course, proved his doubters wrong when he was selected as MVP of Super Bowl XLVI — the second of his NFL career.
Former New York Giants center Shaun O’Hara gives his No. 1 obstacle to a Philadelphia Eagles dynasty.
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, […]
