"The Eagles and Vick, however, are just a bad fit, for a bunch of reasons. This is a tough, blue-collar town. They take sports very seriously. Sports talk radio can be brutal. Eagles fans once pelted Santa Claus with snowballs and cheered when Michael Irvin went down with a career-ending neck injury."
And remember the game the Eagles played Thursday, you know before we became Vick-a- delphia? Anyone else concerned that Winston Justice looked to be the better starting Tackle? Peters looked like a freaking turnstile out there. This fan wonders if he really re injured his quad or just had enough embarrassment and took himself on the field. Overall the OL did a decent job run blocking, but fellas, Mr. Reid is a passing guy!
But the play of Peters was damn good compared to the play of the special teams unit. Way to make a coaching debut Mr. Daisher...muffed punt, a return for a TD, missed FG, crap punts. And we thought Rory was bad last year.
Still it was only preseason game #1...plenty of time for improvement. And the whole Vick signing covered up the dismal play nicely. Shame the Eagles couldn't of signed Vick after the NFC Championship game last year!
