It's an unexpected defensive showdown in Philadelphia, as the Cowboys lead the Eagles 3-0 at the half. Nick Foles is starting for the injured Michael Vick (and would probably be starting for a healthy Vick too). Though Vick recommended starting Foles in fantasy football this week, he's just 11 of 23 for 80 yards. So… »
The Eagles' college-to-pro coach admitted he was unclear on the NFL injury rules when he unnecessarily kept Michael Vick out of a crucial late-game situation yesterday. It's a learning process. »
Michael Vick may, for the rest of his life, remain a contemptible stereotype to much of the public: A brutal or stupid man. A laughingstock. A guy who did federal time. Still, there is one aspect of his football career that cleanly escapes the wreckage of his personal scandal, that lives on almost as a separate… »
In one of the more unusual interviews I've seen for a new, licensed sports game, the producer of Mike Vick: GameTime, on iOS, asked that his real name not be used. Might being associated with Vick, the NFL quarterback who did federal time for running a dogfighting operation, have something to do with that? »
Why does Marcus Vick still have a Twitter account? You would think that somebody from Michael Vick's camp would have forced him to shut it down after he went on a "Trade my brother!"
Vick was scheduled to sign copies of his book, “Michael Vick: Finally Free," in three Barnes & Noble locations in Atlanta, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. That's not accidental, those areas are probably the only places in the country where at least some people like him. »
Word just came down that Michael Vick, who was previously pegged as a prime candidate to be released by the Philadelphia Eagles due to the $15 million left on his contract, will in fact be staying in Philly for at least one more season. Vick and the Eagles restructured his deal, and he now has a one-year, $10 million… »
Nick Foles got the start today for the Eagles because Michael Vick is still recovering from a concussion he suffered against the Cowboys last week. Eagles trainer Rick Burkholder said "[h]e's had symptoms all week" and that he is "foggy." »
In less than 30 minutes, Marcus Vick went from excited to inconsolable. He was pumped up for Philadelphia's big Monday Night Football matchup with the New Orleans Saints. Unhappily, for Marcus, the game eventually started and he went of the rails, not pulling any punches along the way. The offensive line is shit and… »

Sign 1: A players-only meeting. What goes on at these things? Is actually strategy discussed, or is it just a lot of "we should probably play better?" Regardless of motive, the Eagles responded to an embarrassing loss with a meeting at their practice complex on Wednesday. CSN Philly reports that Michael Vick, Trent Cole, … »
Usually, the clamoring for a change under center comes from fans and media, people who either don't know what they're talking about or haven't taken into account all the reasons for a team's struggles. A porous offensive line, or a defense that puts the quarterback into a position where he has to take risks, or a front … »
This whole thing started last week, when Vick tweeted a photo of his daughter doing homework. Hey, what's that on the table—a box of Milk-Bones? Vick danced around the question when asked about it at practice yesterday, saying he only wanted to talk about football. Maybe someone told him that people aren't going to… »
Since the NFL instituted its "more significant discipline" for shots to the head two years ago, James Harrison has been a remorseless re-offender. He's been fined six times under the new protocol, and he's seemingly bitched about it just as often. Hell, even after his destruction of Colt McCoy
