Last year, the Eagles destroyed the Giants’ season with a 28-point onslaught in the final seven minutes. This time, Andy Reid’s team used a slow and excruciating method to hurt Big Blue once again.
“We’ll just see how the week goes,” Andy Reid said of Vick on Thursday. Well, the Eagles have reportedly made up their mind.
Who will it be under center for the Eagles against the Giants? Michael Vick? Vince Young? Mike Kafka?
Eagles coach Andy Reid says a CT scan Monday shows the star quarterback bruised his hand in Philadelphia’s 29-16 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday.
The storyline this week for the Giants’ trip to Philadelphia is not about their recent woes against the Eagles, but whether Michael Vick will be starting.
Eagles quarterback Michael Vick took part in a morning walkthrough on Wednesday, and there is a chance he will play against the Giants on Sunday.
The Eagles are rumored to be a potential home for former Giants star Plaxico Burress, and were even listed on one betting website as the favorites to land him at 3-2 odds. But according to an AP report, “a person familiar with the team’s thinking … (said) Burress isn’t in their plans.”
Jailed ex-Giants receiver Plaxico Burress is scheduled to be released from Oneida Correctional Facility on June 6 — two weeks from today. According to a weekend report from The Daily News’ Gary Myers, Burress could make a run straight for Philadelphia.
As if NFL coaches needed something else to worry about. When the playoffs begin this weekend, they will feature a new rule for overtime.
With his arm, his feet or his creativity, Michael Vick has embarrassed defenders all season. Unless they can limit Vick and his big-play teammates, Sunday could be a long day for Charles Woodson, Clay Matthews and the Green Bay Packers.
Michael Vick is showing less patience in the pocket, committing more turnovers and making fewer long completions. Is he regressing?
“I’ve never been around anything like this in my life,” said Tom Coughlin, whose job may be on the line if the Giants miss the playoffs for a second straight year. “It’s about as empty as you get to feel in this business, right there.”
The Giants now have one less day to prepare for Philadelphia after toppling the Minnesota Vikings 21-3 during their postponed matchup on Monday night.
Michael Vick, DeSean Jackson and the rest of Philadelphia’s offense are doing things that even Donovan McNabb, Terrell Owens and Co. didn’t do for the 2004 NFC champion Eagles.
It’s perilous for a New York sportswriter to babble about a hated player who played for two hated teams. But one question needs to be answered.
