The Eagles made the Saints D look good / great in the beginning of the game.
It is not Vicks fault with no blocking.
The Eagles D was spirited, but poor tackling and the scheme sunk them also.
This was the game to get things fixed.

Vick takes a lot of criticism but he was running for his life last night, as usual. Some of the hits he took last night, let alone the season, would have knocked lesser players out of the game. Brees hardly got touched and had two fumbles. Vick was molested more often than a kid at cub scout camp and only coughed up one ball that I can recall.
There were O lineman STANDING AROUND last night on too many plays not hitting a soul while Vick get pummeled. Granted, at least they helped Vick up off the ground. I can't believe the pounding Vick takes week after week and picks his a** up and plays again.
There were too many times when NO lined up 6 defenders on the line and Philly had 5 O lineman and an empty backfield. Result? Another Vick pummeling. Temple has an audible for that but the Eagles don't? (I thought Chucky was gonna come unglued last night.)
MM playbook looks the the old "chuck and duck" except when 25 has the ball. I am amazed that Vick had lasted this long, I had him pegged lasting 5 games this year. 7, 25 and 81 are playing hard (notice Avant converted at least 3 3rd downs last night on second effort).
I thought Mudd was such a good coach? Our O line looks horrible although they have mastered the OLE blocking technique although they are still learning the "LOOK OUT" technique.Yes I know there are injuries but injuries are not unique to Philly. Other teams have injuries and the guys who step in seem to step up, in Philly they step aside.
Andy Reid's record the last 4 years is on pace to be worse than Richie Kotite's...

As for our D...Nnamdi see ya!!! Now, it's easy to say it was a mistake getting rid of Samuel, but at the time they got him, everyone (including you who is reading this right now) thought he was the man!
I think Reid deserves another year with hopefully a healthy team to prove this thing can work!!!! I will admit D needs some work though!!

Vick is just not a good quarterback. Sure the guy's in a tough spot with the line and the lack of protection but look at how he plays when he does have time. His passes are poorly thrown, especially the long balls. He's almost always late hitting the receiver. He can't read a defense and he just doesn't think quick enough. Part of the reason he takes so many hits is because he holds the ball for so damn long and because he can read the defense while he's at the line. If he could... he would audible and burn these teams that are blitzing so much. Hell if they can all do it to us when we blitz why can't we ever do it to them?
As for the rest of the guys... we have too many people like DeSean and Nnamdi that are just not performing. I say it's time to open some cap space and dump a number of these guys. Sure... we'll suck even worse this year and maybe next year too but we need to build a team that can play together with heart... not this half-a*s bunch of underachievers.
Finally... if I have to listen to Andy say one more time that it's his fault I'm going to throw-up. Every week... same responses... same excuses... no results.

As for your comment on needing to publicly call out his players...when has that ever worked?
