Speed kills for Eagles

With speed to spare and Michael Vick playing his best football ever, the Eagles pose numerous problems for any team matching up against them in the NFC playoffs.

Storyline is MVP

Michael Vick might be a contender by the numbers, but when it comes to narrative he's the prohibitive favorite.

Who is the NFL's MVP at this point in the season?

A video game brought to life

Michael Vick is showcasing a freakish set of skills that only seemed possible when you designed your own player in Madden. If he keeps this up, he'll be much more than just a remarkable reclamation project.

A whole new Vick

If Michael Vick sustains his level of play and stays healthy, it could create a very interesting NFL MVP discussion at the end of the year.

By Michael Kun | November 17, 2010; 08:14 AM ET | Comments (0)

A knee-jerk reaction

Michael Vick deserves to be mentioned in the NFL MVP conversation, but there are plenty of others also having banner years who have proven their ability to stay healthy and contribute in every game their teams play.

By Matt Loede | November 17, 2010; 08:05 AM ET | Comments (1)

Health is paramount

If Michael Vick can stay healthy through the rest of the season and maintain his level of play to this point, there's no question that he'll be the NFL MVP. But that's a big "if."

By Leonard Shapiro | November 17, 2010; 07:54 AM ET | Comments (0)

For now, it's Vick

Michael Vick is bound to regress in the second half, but to this point, there's no question he's the NFL's most valuable player. And if he can stay healthy, he could very well earn the title by season's end.

By Anthony Stalter | November 17, 2010; 07:45 AM ET | Comments (1)

No rush to judgment

There's a reason the NFL moved its MVP voting to after the season -- to help ensure the most deserving player earns the award. Michael Vick is firmly in the conversation, but the award is still up in the air.

McNabb = History, Vick = Future

Which QB would you rather have right now, McNabb or Vick?

A (triumphant?) return

Sunday's Redskins-Eagles game is all about Donovan McNabb returning to face the team he led for the last 11 seasons. And if the boo birds are out to greet him, he'll feel right at home.

By Dave Goldberg | September 30, 2010; 01:45 AM ET | Comments (1)

Must see TV

The storylines, the rivalry and the importance of a critical early season NFC East showdown make Donovan McNabb's return to Philadelphia a must-watch on Sunday.

Vick's first big test

The Philadelphia Eagles seem to be the ideal fit for a more mature Michael Vick, but can he keep up this pace?

It only took 3 weeks

Three weeks into the season, football fans - including this one - see a new and improved Michael Vick leading the Philadelphia Eagles. And it seems most prefer that new Vick to the old Donovan McNabb.

By Michael Kun | September 30, 2010; 12:50 AM ET | Comments (2)

Known quantity

Michael Vick may have the hot hand and the better situation at the moment, but give me Donovan McNabb - the proven quarterback who knows what it takes to lead a Super Bowl contender.

Philly's youth movement

The Eagles have quickly turned the page on the Donovan McNabb era and their strong start with Michael Vick at the helm can be attributed to their emerging young stars.

By Sean McCann | September 30, 2010; 12:37 AM ET | Comments (1)

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.

By Richard Boadu & Claude Clayborne | September 16, 2010; 11:12 AM ET | Comments (2)

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.

By Brandon Benson | September 16, 2010; 11:01 AM ET | Comments (0)

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.

By Dawn Knight | September 16, 2010; 10:55 AM ET | Comments (1)

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.

By Jason Brewer | September 16, 2010; 10:50 AM ET | Comments (0)

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.

By Matt Loede | September 16, 2010; 10:40 AM ET | Comments (0)

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.

By Rob Rang | September 16, 2010; 10:25 AM ET | Comments (0)

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.

By Leonard Shapiro | September 16, 2010; 09:53 AM ET | Comments (0)

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.

By Dave Goldberg | September 16, 2010; 09:23 AM ET | Comments (2)

The excitement is back

Michael Vick showed flashes from his prime in Week 1 and he now has the chance to take hold of the starting quarterback job in Philadelphia.

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

Right place at the right time

PETA Protest Possible

PETA certainly wouldn't take anything off of the table in terms of protesting the UFL were it to sign Vick.

Avoid the XFL's Fate

The UFL has to reconcile is just what kind of league it wants to be, and what it wants to accomplish.

Nothing's Fair in Fantasy Land

There is nothing fair about the NFL's personal conduct policy until you take into account that there is nothing realistic about the NFL.

Probe Helps Burress

Goodell is not only acting within his rights as commissioner, he's actually HELPING Burress by initiating the probe.

Consistency Wanted

It seems to me that Goodell bases the expediency with which he deals with a player's disciplinary issues on the interest teams have in that player.

The No Fair League

The NFL's disciplinary system is about as fair and objective as a tribunal in the Soviet Union.

They're Doing The Time

I don't think they're treated differently at all. If they were, folks wouldn't be going to jail.

Vick Deserves Opportunity

What would it say about the priorities of the league if Vick is treated worse for killing dogs than another human being -- as in the case of Leonard Little or Donte Stallworth.

Suspend, but Reinstate

Having Vick sit out the first eight games sounds about right.

Building a New Image

Because of the vitriolic reaction to his dog fighting ring, and Vick's past, the NFL can't reinstate him ... yet. But they could soon, if Vick makes the right moves by working hard at his new construction job, proving that he can be a successful team player again.

Who Even Wants Him?

Whether Michael Vick will be re-instated is actually irrelevant, because while he almost certainly will, a much greater issue is who should want him?

One Last Chance

The NFL should give Michael Vick a non-negotiable last chance to play football.

Ban Vick for Life?

I see no reason why Goodell would ever let Michael Vick back under the lucrative NFL Shield.

The NFL Will Bend

The current Commissioner has proven that the need to fill the coffers trumps most everything else in his mind.

Vick Doesn't Deserve a Second Chance

There has to be something so vile in the character of someone who would support such an operation that we have wonder if it is worth having that person involved in the sport we love.

Vick's a Tougher Sell

NFL fans want to win. But I'm not sure how many NFL fans want their team to be the one that pays Vick a king's ransom to lineup under center.

Risky Bonds Investment

Let's see, admitted dog-abuser and convicted felon or alleged steroid cheat and ultimate baseball fraud?

Vick, Clearly?

Vick's younger -- his transgressions hurt dogs, not his sport.

Vick or Bonds?

Michael Vick or Barry Bonds, you decide...
