Michael Vick

  1. Vick: ‘I take sole responsibility’ for loss to Chiefs

    Vick: “I take sole responsibility for what happened tonight. I didn’t execute.” — Reuben Frank (@RoobCSN) September 20, 2013 That’s awfully noble of you, Mike. Don’t get me wrong, you deserve some of the blame, but there is plenty of it to go around the Eagles’ locker room after their 26-16 loss to the Kansas…

  2. The Eagles Could’ve Had Colin Kaepernick According to Report

    Sep 16, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT

    Interesting timing for Michael Vick to come out and set a new career high with 428 yards through the air against the Chargers. Little more than an hour before the contest, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the Eagles had almost traded for one NFL starter one year earlier, and had designs on drafting another. In case…

  3. Vick and McCoy’s Usage Should be Monitored During Early Portion of Schedule

    Sep 11, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    The Washington Redskins defense weren’t the only ones who looked completely exhausted by the end of the Eagles’ 33-27 win on Monday night. Michael Vick was hit seven times on dropbacks and ran nine times with the football, and was noticeably hobbled in the final minutes. By his career-high 31st carry, LeSean McCoy practically needed…

  4. DeSean Jackson Owns the Redskins, Says Defenses ‘better get in shape’

    Sep 10, 2013, 4:19 PM EDT

    desean-hall

    Among the most positive signs from the Eagles’ 33-point offensive outburst on Monday night had to be the performance of DeSean Jackson, at least as far as individuals are concerned. Coming off of consecutive seasons with declining numbers, the two-time Pro Bowler showed he’s ready to serve as the torchbearer for the wide receivers in…

  5. Hold Your Horses: Chip Kelly’s Debut Exaggerated by Floundering Redskins

    Sep 10, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    chip-vick

    One of the pressing questions for the Eagles heading into this season was what if Chip Kelly’s up-tempo offense goes three and out, and their defense had to go back right on the field after they just came off? New question: what if the Birds’ opponent goes three and out on offense? The answer is…

  6. Vick: Eagles’ Offense ‘Something like you’ve never seen before’

    Sep 9, 2013, 4:05 PM EDT

    vick-jags

    We’re counting down the seconds until Chip Kelly unveils his offense for the entire NFL-watching world to see. Preseason offered only a glimpse into what the first-year head coach has in store for the Eagles; now it’s time see the real thing. If Michael Vick is to be believed, we’re in for a real treat.…

  7. 2013 Philadelphia Eagles: Predictions for All 16 Games

    Sep 5, 2013, 7:30 PM EDT

    mccoy-skins

    Week 1 at Washington – Win, 37-27 Chip Kelly shocks the world with his offense – by coming out and running the triple option out of the Flexbone on Monday Night Football. Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy, and Bryce Brown combine to rush for over 300 yards against the Redskins, who are caught completely off-guard by…

  8. Is RG3 Ready for Week 1 Against the Eagles?

    Sep 3, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    griffin-eagles

    Two situations spring to mind when I think about Robert Griffin III under center for the Washington Redskins just eight months removed from a torn ACL, not to mention without attempting so much as a single pass in a preseason game this summer. First, I think of Donovan McNabb in 2007, less than one year…

  9. The Over/Under on How Many Starts Vick Makes in 2013 Will Surprise You

    Aug 28, 2013, 1:59 PM EDT

    vick-hat

    Some people believe Michael Vick is a very good to great NFL quarterback, some think he’s an overrated, inconsistent, and flawed player. Wherever you happen to fall on that spectrum, there’s one aspect to Vick’s game almost everyone can agree on: he’s injury prone. Vick is the Eagles’ starting quarterback for now, but even if…

  10. Mike Vick Wasn’t That Bad in Jacksonville, and Other Offensive Observations

    Aug 26, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Michael-Vick-throwaway

    On the surface, Michael Vick’s first game as the newly reinstated starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles seemed like a mess. He didn’t demonstrate flawless precision like the two games prior. He seemed to be holding on to the ball too long in general. He made some horrendous decisions with the football. Some of that…

  11. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly from the Eagles’ Third Preseason Game

    Aug 24, 2013, 11:35 PM EDT

    Nick Foles, Chip Kelly

    Despite pulling out a 31-24 win in Jacksonville on Saturday night, there is no question this will go down as the most disappointing of the Eagles’ four preseason games. All you’re really looking for from these glorified scrimmages is execution, and it was lacking in bounds by Chip Kelly’s squad. The offense looked sloppy and…

  12. Coming to Terms with Vick as the Eagles’ Starting QB… Again

    Aug 21, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    vick-point

    There may not be a more outspoken critic of Michael Vick the football player than myself since his arrival in Philadelphia in 2009. It’s got nothing to do with past criminal behavior – he paid his debt to society. In fact, I kind of like the reformed Mike. He strikes me as a thoughtful and…

  13. What They’re Saying: Players and Coaches React to Vick Being Named Eagles’ QB

    Aug 20, 2013, 3:10 PM EDT

    Patriots Eagles Football

    Chip Kelly dropped some big news today, naming Mike Vick the Eagles’ starting quarterback for Week 1 against the Washington Redskins and the foreseeable future. He probably could have waited another week to make an announcement, but Vick was clearly ahead of Nick Foles after the last preseason game and that was unlikely to change,…

  14. No, the Eagles Should Not Trade Nick Foles Now

    Aug 20, 2013, 2:20 PM EDT

    foles-franchise

    You may have heard the chatter on talk radio or in some shallow corner of the internet. Rich Hoffman wrote what I’m sure is a thoughtful piece (behind a subscriber wall) on the topic today for the Daily News. Since Nick Foles failed to overtake Michael Vick in the Eagles’ quarterback competition, the team should…

  15. Vick Has 13th-Best Odds to Win NFL MVP This Season

    Aug 20, 2013, 1:01 PM EDT

    mike.vick

    From wide-open quarterback competition to most valuable player in the NFL? You can bet on it. Literally, you can. Maybe it’s only coincidence (probably not), but not long after Chip Kelly named Michael Vick the Eagles’ starting quarterback, his odds on winning some serious hardware improved rather suddenly. In fact, only 12 players are getting…

  16. Have We Seen Enough of the Eagles’ QB Competition? And More Observations

    Aug 19, 2013, 6:30 AM EDT

    Patriots Eagles Football

    At this point you probably should be resigned to the inevitable. Barring injury or a dramatic reversal of fortune, Michael Vick will be named the Eagles’ starting quarterback sometime between now and September 9. It’s not that Nick Foles has been bad by any means. The 24 year old moved the offense quite capably. It’s…

  17. Trending Up? Eagles Move Ball at Will, Allow Zero TDs Against Panthers

    Aug 15, 2013, 11:20 PM EDT

    mccoy-panthers

    It’s only preseason, and believe me, the Eagles still have plenty of kinks to work out. A pair of turnovers cost the offense an opportunity to jump all over the opponent early, an opponent that may have left the defense off the hook a few times due to their own inefficiency. When the gun sounded…

  18. All Eyes on Eagles’ Defense in Second Preseason Game – What We Want to See

    Aug 15, 2013, 2:45 PM EDT

    Brandon LaFell, Nate Allen

    The Eagles’ defense has been taking a beating all week. First they had to fight Tom Brady and 10 of his best friends last Friday, the result of which was – to put it bluntly – an ass whoopin’. And over the six days since, observers have been picking over the scraps, questioning everything from…

  19. Look at This Huge Pocket Vick Had, and Other Eagles’ Observations on Offense

    Aug 12, 2013, 12:40 PM EDT

    If you’re hoping to learn more about Chip Kelly’s offense, there are plenty of valuable resources out there that can explain it better than I can. If you’ve already been exposed to Chip when he was at Oregon, earlier we linked to Smart Football’s piece on what coach brought to the NFL in his preseason…

  20. First One in the Books: Patriots Clip Eagles in Chip’s NFL Debut

    Aug 10, 2013, 12:16 AM EDT

    chip-kinne

    In many respects the Eagles’ first preseason game under head coach Chip Kelly probably met a lot of expectations. Philly’s offense was potent, be it by quick strike or methodical march. The defense on the other hand is still a work in progress. And not surprisingly, an opponent that’s reached the playoffs nine times in…

  21. Vick to Start Preseason Week 1, Foles Gets the Nod in Week 2

    Aug 8, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT

    vick-foles

    Somehow this was even more anti-climactic than I was expecting. The news that Michael Vick will start the Eagles’ first preseason game on Friday would not have meant much, because it wouldn’t necessarily be an indication he was going to start the regular season opener in Washington, or that he even owned a significant lead…

  22. Eagles Release Unofficial Depth Chart – WHO’S THE STARTING QB?!?!

    Aug 5, 2013, 5:15 PM EDT

    vick-foles

    Whoever is responsible for this version of the Eagles’ depth chart, which is posted on the team’s web site but honestly means next to nothing, totally copped out when they got down to quarterback. And the first-team signal caller is…? 7 Michael Vick/9 Nick Foles. Still no hint on who will start the first preseason…

  23. Observations and Practice Notes from Week One at Eagles Training Camp

    Jul 30, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    barkley-ertz

    When Chip Kelly says the depth chart is written in sand, that every player on the Eagles’ roster must compete for their spot on a daily basis, he’s not kidding. There are few positions where it’s obvious who will be the starter come September 9 in Washington based on practice reps. LeSean McCoy is the…

  24. Mike Vick: Starter or Not, Eagles and Chip Kelly Are Best Opportunity

    Jul 24, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    Michael Vick

    Michael Vick’s motives are pure. If a 33-year-old quarterback entering his 11th NFL season doesn’t realize the days of shoe deals and video game covers are either over or at least coming to an end, then he’s probably the recipient of some bad advice (DeSean Jackson apparently thinks that’s unlikely for what it’s worth –…

    Michael Vick’s star hasn’t merely fallen – it’s plummeted. Just a few years removed from being voted the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year, Vick took a pay cut over the winter and now is embroiled in a quarterback competition. Perception around the league has changed along with Vick’s status. ESPN analyst and former Eagles…
