Michael Vick Is Bleeding Green With The New York Jets!

Michael Vick Named Most Disliked Athlete (thumbnail)

It’s official, Mike Vick is outta here! Friday afternoon the 33 year old quarterback signed a deal with the New York Jets. The Jets released QB Mark Sanchez & signed Vick. I’m sad to see him go but he served his time here in Philadelphia and he wasn’t going to start here over Nick Foles next season anyway. Good for him & we wish him the best of luck in New York… As long as its not against us! LOL

Michael Vick wrote a farewell letter to Eagles fans:

I would like to thank the Eagles and the entire city of Philadelphia. I was honored to be their quarterback and took the privilege to heart every day. I especially want to thank Jeffrey Lurie and Andy Reid, who gave me the opportunity. I want to thank my teammates, who were not just coworkers, but friends. I also want to thank the millions of fans who cheered and supported our team.People say Philadelphia fans are tough. I say they are fair. A player is not judged solely by his past or promises of the future, but by his actions today, and the next day, and the next.

Tom Ford Parody – (NICK FOLES) [New Music]

Dallas Cowboys v Philadelphia Eagles

I’m a die hard Eagles fan. Our season has been up and down, our quarterback changes with an blink of an eye. Hearing Jay-z’s Tom Ford made me think of our fans and how hype they are to see Nick Foles as our starter. So we made this parody. Enjoy :)

There is no such thing as a dumb question.

That’s a lie. Just this past week people we’re asking should the Philadelphia Eagles start Quarterback Nick Foles even if Mike Vick is healthy? Do you see how dumb that question is. The bad thing about it is, it took an unnecessary 17-3 loss to the now 4-3 Dallas Cowboys to show how out of touch people are for even asking this question.

Being a fan of the Eagles means I support every player on the field. There are some fans, based on media portrayal, that only support Foles or any Eagles quarterback other than Vick. This has created a rift it the Eagles fan community and unfortunately it won’t stop until Vick is not on the roster. To these fans I say lets state the facts. Nick Foles is 2-7 as a starter, with both wins coming against the Tampa Bay Bucs. I don’t consider the Giants game a win for Foles because Vick left the game with a comfortable lead for Foles. With a record that dismal can we please stop asking for Foles to be more than what he is, a backup.

It would be acceptable if people would just say “I don’t like, or can’t ever support Mike Vick” that would at least be honest, but this campaign to make Foles seem better equipped than Vick, to lead this Eagles team is a joke.

On Sunday we saw what Nick Foles can do in a game where he has the odds in his favor. The Cowboys came to Philadelphia without their best defensive player, DeMarcus Ware and top running back, DeMarco Murray. Foles did nothing to help win the game for us. The defense even stepped up and held the Cowboys to 3 points in the first half.

The question that we need to ask is, Do you still have faith in Nick Foles or should the Eagles re-sign Mike Vick immediately?

The Eagles Look Good In Preseason Opener, But Where’s The Defense?

New England Patriots v Philadelphia Eaglesphoto by: getty images

Friday night brought christmas to south Philadelphia as Philadelphia Eagles fans were treated to a peek of what their 2013 team will look like. For months Eagles fans have anxiously waited to see how the team will play under the leadership of new head coach Chip Kelly. Even with a 31-22 loss to the New England Patriots there was plenty of optimism shared by fans while leaving the game. Here are a few of my observations from Friday nights game.

QB competition – I like the size of Nick Foles, to be honest any 6’5″ or taller QB, but Mike Vick, with the protection of this O-Line is capable of putting together a spectacular year similar to the 2010 season. That potential combined with Vick’s leadership role on the team makes it obvious that he will be named the starter.

Tackling – My high school and college coaches always said, “Perfect practice makes perfect.” Knowing how forward thinking it has been reported that Coach Kelly is, how is it possible to think the defense can perform at a professional level if they don’t tackle in practice. It was offensive to the entire city of Philadelphia to have Patriots HB, LaGarrette Blount run a circle around our entire defense on his way to a 51 yard td.

Final thoughts: The Philadelphia Eagles showed promise under the direction of new head coach Chip Kelly. However, football is a game played in three phases, Offense, Defense and Special Teams. The Eagles seem to have the Offense and Special Teams on track but if the Defense doesn’t get up to speed we could be in for a lot of high scoring losses this season. Let’s hope they tighten things up before week 1 of the regular season.

Eagles Break Losing Streak, Is This The Beginning Of The Nick Foles Era? [Opinion]

959655

The Philadelphia Eagles soared down to Tampa, Florida and beat the Tampa Bay Bucs 23-21 on a last play of the game throw from Nick Foles to Jeremy Maclin, as time expired. Immediately, that winning feeling that abandoned Philadelphia seventy days ago was back. Even Wycleff could only predict being gone till November, but December, that was a bit much for all of us to endure.

With the dramatic last play of the game, comeback win over the Bucs, Philadelphia is once again in a peculiar situation. What dramatic moves will shape our offseason, specifically at the Quarterback position.

Three years ago the Eagles decided to move on from Donovan McNabb and hand the team over to backup Kevin Kolb. There is no need to reiterate how atrocious that move was but there was something that I believe Eagles ownership missed learning throughout that entire ordeal. You can’t take shortcuts to success.

When a team changes quarterbacks it initiates a rebuilding process. There are exceptions to the rule, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady come to mind, but most often there is a period of losing and a change in personnel to create the best chemistry for the new quarterback. When the Eagles gave the reigns to Kolb, followed by his concision and performance by Mike Vick, the Eagles never had the opportunity to truly move on from Donovan McNabb and establish a new identity.

If Nick Foles is given the reigns to the Eagles offense this will give the Eagles an opportunity to correct their previous mistakes when going down this path. The first time we switched quarterbacks and not coaching, this time around an entire purge will be required.

What do you think the most significant offseason move will be?

Let’s Talk
