Mike Vick was surprisingly charming after tossing four interceptions — he’s lucky he didn’t throw a couple more — in the Eagles ugly win over the Browns on Sunday.
Following the win, Vick joked with reporters about having to get out of Cleveland.
Probably a good idea under any circumstances. But I’m not sure if changing zip codes is going to change his decision making ability.

The Eagles, and in particular Michael Vick, made this harder than it had to be. That said, what matters is the Birds escaped Cleveland with a win.
Vick heaved four interceptions, including a pick six that handed the Browns the lead in the fourth quarter, as the offense failed to find a rhythm for most of the afternoon. With the game on the line, and an embarrassing loss looking increasingly likely, they finally figured it out in the closing moments. The Eagles moved 91 yards on 16 plays, capped off by a four-yard touchdown pass to Clay Harbor to steal the 17-16 victory.

Well then. The Eagles played one ugly football game on the offensive side of the ball. But thanks to a solid effort from the defense and the help of Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden, Philadelphia is undefeated on the season.

The first NFL Sunday of the season has arrived. Ah… love that feeling. We’re taking a spin around the league to look at the match-ups involving future Eagles opponents or games that may have implications in the NFC East. If you’re watching Red Zone today or any of the later games, leave your comments on the action here.

Sunday’s 1 p.m. kickoff is fast approaching, and while it feels like we’ve been setting the stage for months, news on both sides keeps rolling in. The Eagles’ linebacker situation got even weirder on Friday, while an injury on offense may change the complexion of their backfield. In Cleveland, Scott Fujita’s suspension may have been lifted, but will he play, and how big a dose of Trent Richardson will the Birds receive?

Bryce Brown is 21 years old which means he probably grew up playing some version of the ubiquitous Madden football video game. But does the younger generation who grew up playing Madden football not know the glory of Tecmo Super Bowl?

As you may have heard by now, the Eagles kick off the regular season on Sunday in Cleveland against the Browns. And as we are wont to do around here before a big game, we took a look at some of the big match-ups ahead, examining and breaking down what will tilt the scales in either team’s favor.
Sep 7, 2012, 1:50 PM EDT
It’s kind of a flawed list considering where one of Philadelphia’s other teams sits in the pack, but your 76ers are earning some national love. So they’ve got that going for them, which is nice.

Eagles second-year offensive guard Danny Watkins is almost as well known for his prior life as a fireman as he is for being pretty good at football. After all, he bought himself a big ass fire truck this offseason. I guess with being a fireman comes the need to be a resourceful individual. Like if you don’t have any real food around you can just turn to indigenous insects.

That’s his name, so don’t want to wear it out — especially before one real game has been played.
The hope was that DeMeco Ryans would come over from the Houston Texans and stabilize a linebacker corps that was woefully in over their heads just a season ago. Unfairly or not, his arrival has been met with mixed reviews thus far — I’ll go on the record as siding with “unfairly.” Nonetheless, the seventh-year veteran’s athleticism has been called into question since an Achilles injury struck in 2010, and the idea he is still a three-down player is exactly that: an idea.

Some are much better than others. Sadly, the Philadelphia Eagles one just isn’t very funny. The Dallas Cowboys fan was pretty on point. I got a chuckle out of the Baltimore Ravens fan as well.

The Daily News published their big Eagles season preview issue today and it features the above pull out cover of Andy Reid and Mike Vick Photoshopped (we’re assuming) onto the heads of Eagles.
Like, the actual flying avian kind.

As we discussed earlier in the day, the replacement refs in last night’s Cowboys-Giants game did a solid job. They made a few generally questionable calls but nothing you wouldn’t see from a regular set of refs. But there were also rumblings that the NFL picked the best of the replacements to work last nights game to try and get a little bit of leverage by showing the replacements can be adequate.
Tony Romo May Have Played Quite Well, But At Least 82,000 New Yorkers Felt Like These Guys Last Night
Sep 6, 2012, 2:30 AM EDT
Eli Manning and the New York Giants may have been the ones celebrating a Vince Lombardi trophy prior to kickoff on Wednesday night in East Rutherford, New Jersey, but it’s Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys who are leaders of the NFC East this morning following their 24-17 victory last night.
Sep 5, 2012, 7:27 PM EDT
The wait is over. Are you as excited as we are, even if it is a game between two teams you are hardwired to hate?
The NFL kicks off tonight at 8:30 in its traditional fashion, with the reigning Super Bowl champions playing host. Eight months after the New York Giants met the Dallas Cowboys to determine the last remaining playoff spot in the final game of the 2011 regular season, the rematch is set for the first game of 2012. And although there is less at stake this time around, at the end of the night, one of these two teams will be in first place in the NFC East.

Every week during the 2012 season we’re going to hit up some of the most knowledgeable people on the Internet when it comes to the team the Philadelphia Eagles are playing that particular Sunday. Up first, Scott Sargent of the go-to Cleveland sports site Waiting for Next Year.
Kulp:Third-overall pick Trent Richardson didn’t play all preseason after having “minor” knee surgery, but is expected to be ready for Week 1. How large a role will he play in the offense versus the Eagles?
Scott, WFNY: If any, I think we’re looking at a two-down situation with Richardson on Opening Day.

A look back at Sheldon Brown’s time with the Eagles, why he was traded, and what the team got in return.
The Tony Danza Prophecy of ‘The Garbage Picking Field Goal Kicking Philadelphia Phenom’ Almost Realized
Sep 4, 2012, 10:55 AM EDT
When I heard that the Eagles’ newest defensive addition acquired from the Cleveland Browns, safety David Sims, was a trash man at one point on his journey to the NFL, I couldn’t help but think of the cinematic classic starring Tony Danza, “The Garbage Picking Field Goal Kicking Philadelphia Phenom.”

Jeffrey Lurie delivered his annual State of the Eagles address before Thursday’s preseason game, and while the CEO didn’t have much of interest to say, the media was quick to hone in on the ultimatum of sorts he imposed on Andy Reid. Let’s see if we can deliver this is the simplest of terms using Lurie’s own words.
