Most dangerous team in NFC?

Who is the most dangerous NFC team heading into the playoffs?

Eagles, Saints lead pack

The Eagles have proven no lead is safe against them while the Saints showed Monday night they are capable of beating anyone anywhere. Both teams have a great shot to make a Super Bowl run.

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.

By Emil Steiner | November 18, 2010; 09:00 AM ET | Comments (0)

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.

Jumping to conclusions

It's far too early to accurately asses the quality of play and the quality of teams in the NFL this season. Defensive struggles may not appeal to everyone, but it remains a formula for success.

Peyton still a safe bet

Despite an 0-2 start in the division, helped by Jim Caldwell's timeout blunder against the Jaguars, the Colts should turn things around behind the most reliable signal caller in the NFL, Peyton Manning.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

When one of Michael Vick's co-defendants was shot after Vick's birthday party, the Philadelphia Eagles backup quarterback was exactly where he should have been -- long gone.

He deserves better

The Eagles would be wise to see what they have in Kevin Kolb, but for all Donovan McNabb has given Philadelphia, he deserves better than Oakland.

By Dave Goldberg | April 2, 2010; 12:00 AM ET | Comments (2)

The final piece

Donovan McNabb has plenty left in the tank, which makes him the perfect quarterback to push a borderline team into the playoffs. Think Brett Favre 2.0.

McNabb Takes a Little Ribbing

With the added protection of a well padded flak jacket, he shouldn't have any drop in performance.

Vick Baffles in Eagles Debut

Vick's presence seemed to slow the Eagles' offense more than confuse the Jacksonville Jaguars' defense.

Vick on the Right Track

For a player who hasn't played in two years, and for one that is playing with a new team, Vick had a good night.

Vick Issue Still in Doubt

The issue's still in doubt, but that's a good thing for Vick -- he didn't screw up. In fact he could be great.

Vick Takes the Phans

Philadelphia may not have a QB controversy on its sideline, but it has one in the stands.

So Far So Good

Philadelphia Eagles fans are pleased, but we need to see more of Vick to know whether he's really ready for the NFL.

Goodell Overbearing

Eagles Fit Vick

The Birds got what Vick needs, and they play in Philly, a town with a history of embracing the hardscrabble black athlete.

Tough Landing Spot

If Vick's looking for that hard edge and an environment that will neither bend nor break, Philly's just the place he's looking for.

Vick Got Lucky

When the worlds of sports and animal-rights activism collide at the team's headquarters in South Philadelphia on Friday, it's clear the Eagles will be prepared.

PETA Clips Birds

Eagles fans can do is cross their fingers and hope that they won't ever have to explain to their sons and daughters what a "rape rack" is.

Banner Lunacy

Banner's Right. Now just win, baby...

The Eagles are the most talented just like the New York Yankees own the most talented Major League Baseball team. Until they win a championship, however, does it really matter?

Watch What You Say

It's a long season, and it's going to be interesting to see if Banner's words come back to bite him and his team.

Let the Excuses Begin

You have to take everything Banner says with the appropriate grain of blame-deflecting salt.

Steelers For Now

Eagles may prove themselves to be the best roster but for now Pittsburgh still holds the crown.

Best How?

Joe Banner is among the most adept execs in the business, but I'm not sure what he meant with that "best roster" comment.
