Mike Vick to remain on Philadelphia Eagles roster past February 6 deadline

Share

 

For the entire 2012 season, we’ve thought that February 6, 2013—three days after the Super Bowl—was the do-or-die deadline for the Philadelphia Eagles to make a decision on whether Mike Vick would stay or go. It now appears as if that is not the case. The team has a bit more wiggle room.

It was previously thought that if Vick remained on the roster on February 6 the Birds were on the hook for paying the quarterback $3 million. However, according to Tim McManus of Birds 24/7, Continue reading ‘Mike Vick to remain on Philadelphia Eagles roster past February 6 deadline’

In the unending speculation about who will be under center for the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2013 season, several names have been tossed around. Is Mike Vick more likely to stay with the team in Chip Kelly’s spread offense? Will Coach Kelly like what he sees in Nick Foles’ progress?

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 know, a win is a win, and Philadelphia currently holds the lead in the NFC East.

I’ll take it.

The Eagles defense has done an incredible job covering for the mistakes of the offense, which has done much to quell the question marks about the “D” that were a focal point this offseason. The upgrades that the team made this spring and summer—the drafting of players already making a significant impact on the defense like Mychal Kendricks and Brandon Boykin as well as the huge move of acquiring MIKE linebacker DeMeco Ryans from Houston are already paying dividends.

Philadelphia Eagles offense prepares to address concerns in Week 2

Share

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 in order to beat an exceptional Baltimore defense? How will Philadelphia’s D perform against a Ravens offense fresh off of a strong Monday night performance against the Bengals, featuring the likes of one of the best running backs in the league in Ray Rice and quarterbacks in Joe Flacco?
