its great that they held a players only meeting but if the o line cant block for shady to run and give time for plays to develop downfield in the passing game for vick then thats a waste of time.get out on the practice field and correct whats wrong instead of talking about it.

vinrock3... that was pointless.. The players meeting is between teammates and a family.. not the coaches.. Or practicing.. it was for everyone to keep their head out of the media and dont let anything outside the team effect them.. Like the negativity the entire NFL has shadowed over the eagles organization..

I hope that in that meeting the team leaders told Nate Allen to hit some damn body when he has a chance rather than standing flat footed with his arms open swinging at air! I'm tired of his soft as cotton a**!

We can blame everyone from Mr. Lurie down to the disgruntled fans but the players play period. They know how much the picks, dropped passes, penalties, blown coverages etc. costs this team and more importantly who's responsible for each.

They can fix it faster and better than anyone. We'll have to sit and see if this team has the talent and leaders Monday night.

I'm glad the players are taking some initiative. You guys gotta win one for your coach, for your city, and for YOURSELVES. The defense needs to get FIRED UP ANGRY and rip some faces off. I really wanna see Polk finally get some carries. Let that kid run someone over, some aggression like that could spark something in the rest of the guys.

It good to hear and good to see players like Jenkins that has been to and won a Super Bowl speak up. There are some guys on the team that clearly do stupid things that hurt the team they needed to be reeled in.

Winning isn't everything, but the will to win is everything.

----Vince Lombardi

A man can be as great as he wants to be. If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done.

------Vince Lombardi

Winning is not a sometime thing, it's an all time thing. You don't win once in a while, you don't do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time. Winning is habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.

--------Vince Lombardi

Eagles have to decide whether they want to be on the winning side or losing side. Like the great Vince Lombardi said....you dont win once in a while. You dont do things right once in a while. There are several teams who are consistent every sunday, every season. This is the Eagles problem....not being consistent. They have the talent and I pray and hope the meeting was about finding that spark to win and continue to play 100% each and every week. Thats the difference between winners and losers.

Protect the locker room from outside forces or what I call propaganda Eagles. A lot of people are wishing that if they keep spewing negativity outside the locker room it would divide the team and in which it would cause a certain player lose his contract. Eagles ignore them fight thru this hardship together and it will build character! Fly Eagles Fly! Defense win Championships! Lets go D!

Too bad they all don't have DeMeco's desire and intensity and dedication. This team sure does a LOT of talking though...and very little once the whistle blows. And Vick should be no different than any other player at any other position. If someone else isn't playing well, they get benched...he should be no different. Why...cause he's the QB he can't be benched when he's turning the ball over 3 out of 6 times he touches it? Oh great, he had a good game because he didn't have a TO? He didn't even crack 200 yards for crying out loud. He missed about 4 or 5 open receivers by staring down one guy...he doesn't know how to use a simple pump fake or look off the defense. Their still trying to TEACH him the positon...all while were trying to win a Title? Oh brother. This team is a joke and the only way to change that is to go out and play like a team that WANTS to win and has some balls and desire and FIGHT.....THAT will go a LOT further than words.

Bout time they called a players only meeting. Now hopefully they can get something going. They should start Curry and see what he can do. They should bench Tapp and Babin for no production (This guy is all about himself, he should be let go at the end of the year) Glad that Vick is starting, there never should have been a controversy as to who wiull be starting. I know alot of people are wanting Foles to start because of his stats in the preseason, but look at the stats of most of the players that started in the preseason compared to what they are now, I dont think foles will do any better. But hopefully this will be a win in NO and on to good things here on out

@sambo4 Super Bowl Champs Eli Manning & Rodgers didn't break 200 yards. How can you as an audience member see 4-5 receivers being open with one camera angle that's on the line of scrimmage until the ball is released. Before the season people were praying for Vick to get hurt. It didn't happen. So... #7 played to games and won them with game winning drives. People were furious because he won the game with multiple TOs! So the angry people focused on his TOs. Against the Lions & Pittsburg Vick's offense had the substantial lead in the 4th quarters. The defense lost both of those games. So the angry people blamed it on #7. So here's the scenario, the angry people are going to raise the bar real high for #7. If the Eagles win Vick must throw 400 yards, 0 TOs, 4TDs to make people mad enough to say, "It doesn't mean anything, they played the worst defense, it's just one game."

We won't win more than 9 games, and Andy and Vick will both be gone. That is my prediction. I've been a fan for 50 years, so, yes, I've seen a lot, I'm not new to football.

jameex... arg7822 ... Y'EA Boy y'all on point way to SPIT IT my brethren...I for one have already been chided about saying how easily Eagle fans are manuipliated by the Nfl Network and Local Media... all you hear is NEGATIVITY about Vick . Tony Romo has more T/O and Int than Vick yet when the N.F.L analyst discussed ROMO it was as if they were talking about Manning or Brady. The National Media / N.F.L Network has made our QB the Poster Boy of T/O and our Fans those Front Runners and Band Wagoners have all jumped in against Vick . Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I believe in Vick the TOUGHEST sumbi*^h QB in game.I hope and still believe he is our best chance along with Reid to win it all.

trini i agree 100% but i still say that if this season gets 2 far outta hand we should start Foles just 2 c what we really have in him b4 the draft in april so we know weather 2 spend a high draft pick on a QB or actually get that coveted SAFETY we desperately need.. I love both Allen and Coleman.. COLEMAN IS SOO GOOD 4 A 7TH RND PICK but in this game,, its not bout who we love and hate.. its about who produces on the field.. PLZ DONT FIRE REID.. HE IS THE GREATEST COACH WE HAVE EVER HAD!!

I loved Reid but its time to go. I hope he takes Vick with him. You stick with Vick as crappy as he plays congrats because he is going to cost you your job. Cowboys Chiefs Eagles lead league in turnovers they all have losing records Vick alone has 13 of our 17 . Yea great call Reid

I hope Vick gets knocked out of game so Reid doesnt have a choice. Nothing to serious but atleast we would get to see what Foles can or cant do. Vick Romo never going to win sb they are turnover mistake machines.

Trini, you NAILED IT, and Weapon-X you said it correctly. Reid is the BEST IN FRANCHISE HISTORY! Firing him could be THE most disastrous move Lurie has ever made in regards to this team.

With how disenchanted Jerry Jones is with his team, if Lurie fires Reid, what do you want to bet that Andy Reid would top his list of coaching candidates? And how would THIS be for a twist: Reid goes to DALLAS and wins the Lombardi with Tony Romo?

At 3-4 the EAGLES fate is still in their hands. So fans, (**** the media), should stop acting like the season is over, and get behind the team they claim to love so much.

We get too gimmicky on both sides of the ball. We need to take a few pages from the 49ers play book and just be tough and methodical.

The season really isn't all that out of hand yet. Eagles always do their best in the November-December time. But the play-calling for the Eagles needs to change, a lot. For an offensive line that can't block, they need more screen and slant plays to get the ball out quickly. Marty isn't really a football mind, just one of Reid's good friends.

What needs to change quickly is to get rid of MM. That is the only way this O turns around. Well, there is another way, but it will never happen. And that is if MV7 tells MM to go blank himself with his stupid plays and starts running hard again. And MV starts audibling more at the line and gives the ball more to Shady. But hey one can dream. But that is all it will be is dreams. MM is one of the worst O coordinators, if not the worst, in the NFL. FIRE MM AND FREE MV7 AND THIS OFFENSE!!!!!
