Same old Mike

Michael Vick has returned to form, but that form includes inconsistency and an inaccurate arm, which won't be enough for him to hold onto the Philly's starting quarterback job this season.

A favorable defensive scheme

Michael Vick looked like a capable starting quarterback in rallying the Eagles for a second-half comeback against the Packers, but from here on out, defenses will be far more prepared to contain his running game.

Vick's back...up

Philadelphia Eagles must give Kevin Kolb time to recover from his concussion, but when he does, the starting quarterback job should be his again, not Michael Vick's.

Kolb deserves his chance

No matter how well Michael Vick plays in his absence, Kevin Kolb has earned his chance to be the starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Stick with Vick

Michael Vick has proven his ability to spark an offense and has the veteran experience and playmaking ability that should make him the choice to lead the Philadelphia offense.

No metamorphosis

Michael Vick impressed against the Packers, but its unlikely that he'll be able to eliminate the decision-making and accuracy issues that have always plagued his play under center.

The people's choice

If he continues to perform the way he did against the Packers, Michael Vick may soon become the Philadelphia Eagles fans' choice to lead their team this season.

Not the future in Philly

Philadelphia Eagles Coach Andy Reid has hitched his wagon to Kevin Kolb, so no matter how well Michael Vick performs in his absence, he is not the future in Philly.

The excitement is back

Overrated is an understatement

The perennially overrated Cowboys will miss the playoffs as the perfect dream season scenario unfolds for the Redskins.

Popular for a reason

As a successful franchise, the Cowboys deserve praise, no matter how many times "Cowboy haters" say differently, but that success can come back to bite them.

Cowboys are overrated again

The Dallas Cowboys could be the single most overrated team in football...maybe the single most overrated team in all of professional sports in America.

No matter their record, Cowboys remain relevant

The Dallas Cowboys may be down at the moment, but their trophy case proves they are far from the most overrated team in NFL history.

NFC East gets interesting

A poor Dallas Cowboys performance Sunday night just makes an always tough NFC East race even more interesting.

Love 'em or hate 'em, it's all about Big D

Whether you love them or hate them, everyone has something to say about the Dallas Cowboys, giving them nationally televised games and making their players household names no matter how well the team plays from year to year.

Worldwide brand

Despite underachievement on the field in recent years, the Dallas Cowboys have mastered the art of promoting their product off it and remain at the forefront of the national consciousness.

Perception and expectations

When performance doesn't meet perception, fans and the media are responsible for teams like the Dallas Cowboys becoming overrated.

NFC East is anyone's ballgame

Too much money spent on receivers at the expense of a serviceable offensive line is just one of the many problems facing the Dallas Cowboys which opens up the division for the Redskins, Giants and Eagles.

Romo is Cowboys' achilles heel

As long as Tony Romo is at the helm for the Dallas Cowboys, "America's Team" will continue to fail to live up to lofty preseason expectations.

Hail Leon Lett

The comedy of errors the Cowboys committed in their season-opening loss to the Redskins should have Wade Phillips readying his resume once again.

Still No. 1

One week into the season, the landscape of the NFC East may have changed, but the Dallas Cowboys still belong atop the heap...for now at least.

America's team

Branded as "America's Team," the Dallas Cowboys have always been plagued by contradictions and unfulfilled expectations.
