Vick does it again! NFL Monday Night Football Recap by Dutch

Well did he do it again or did he do it again?  Michael Vick, so adament that the team problems the Eagles are going through are just that, team problems.  And nothing to do with the fact that Vick has simply lost his touch.  Yes, he was sacked 7 times but McCoy had no problem rushing for 119 yards on 19 carries for an impressive 6.3 ypc.  Desean Jackson added 100 yards receiving on 3 catches.

Point is, it’s not the line and it’s not the players around him, it’s Vick.  Not only did he throw a pick 6 in the game, the Eagles had 4 1st a goal chances in the game.  Those chances turned into 2 field goals.  As I said in an earlier post, now might be the time to start thinking about giving Nick Foles some reps.  With McCoy running well, it would take a ton of pressure off the rookie QB and give him some good experience in a tough division.

In more exciting news, the Saints are 3-5.  Brees threw for a modest 239 yards and added a pair of touchdowns.  Are the Saints back on track?  I’m not going to so far as to say yes, but if there’s a team that can string 6 wins out of 8 games left, it’s Drew Brees.

PHI 13 – NO 28
