Michael Vick has the start at quarterback, LeSean McCoy is the running back and the Eagles offense looks to finish the 2012 season on a positive note Sunday against the Giants ...

Mike Vick won't take a pay cut to stay with the Eagles...... Ha! He is out of his rocker if he thinks he is worth his salary!

We already know about Vick and Foles, let's give Edwards a shot at the Giants to see if he is worth keeping next year. Might be our best option.

If MM didn't rely on the running game with a rookie backup QB coming in vs the cowboys or a rookie QB playing in his first start vs the Skins I find it very hard to believe that he will rely on the running game this week vs the giants with a vetern QB like MV

Also the start of the season comes to mind MV didn't play all preseason so what does MM do he dials up a 50plus pass gameplan instead of leaning on the run game and letting Vick get used to the speed of the game again.....Well I guess it is possible MM learned from these mistakes and he doesn't throw everything on the QB this week

thaphenom....Him having no exp. at the NFL level is a concern for me atleast with him being HC and I don't know how much success the pistol O would have in the NFL using it full time so that is also a slight conern.

Well, you can cross Sean Payton off your HC list. Not that I thought he would come here...anyway.

MV won't restructure deal...oh well...looks like we save $17 mil against the cap.

no question that the combination of Maclin and DeSean Jackson is good enough to fuel this offense??? Am I the only one that feels like we are playing with two #2 WRs on this team with Djax/Maclin and that we need to get a true #1 WR to pair with them. I have said it for last couple of weeks that are WR's look better without Djax in the lineup could that be because of Foles playing QB i don't know

Dave...you had to bring up '68. We screwed up that year by winning 2 of our last 3...after starting out 0 and 11. It cost us the 'Juice' in the draft. We took the RB Leroy Keyes out of Purdue who was so bad we converted him to DB...and to make matters worse the next pick was 'Mean Joe' Greene taken by the Steelers and the beginning of their dynasty...mercy.

3D....I'd rather keep are 4th overall pick atleast then we could trade back and collect more picks that way and still land a decent player like Manti Te'o or Milliner if that is what we want to do.....

Bills are looking to have the 6th pick you think they would trade up 2-3spots to try and land a franchise QB with us that could be an ideal trade down for us if they do collect the 6th overall pick and maybe a extra 2nd and some later round pick

93...i would not be surprised if all of the top QB's fall in the first round. Barkley looking like Matt Leinert. I would not touch any of them...in the top 10 spots.

This start for Vick against the Gmen is a sop from AR to give Vick a showcase for 2013. If MM gives the ball to Shady 20 time and Bryce 10-12 times.... Is that a showcase? Thinking MM will again defy commonsense and throw it 50 times...Vick will do his best Drew Brees impression which hasn't been very good in 2011 or 2012.

Love Spuds optimism. MM won't gameplan it.

3D ya i wasnt sure about moving JP to RT but i just figured every ones preaching for us to get Joeckel so why not pick up Long... he's still young and atleast he's proven already

Bowe concerns me with injuries and incosistent play(could be from his lack of QB) Also if we draft Justin hunter and Da'rick Rodger don't see a need for Bowe. just pair Hunter with Maclin throw Rodgers in the slot yr one(if Avant isn't around) Damaris/Cooper backups.
Jake Long I believe cost to much and I wouldn't move JP from LT he is hands down the best LT in football and unless his injuries cahnge him which i doubt he will return to being the best. Maybe look into Branden Albert(KC T) or Andy Levitre(Bills G) and if they don't work out Andre Smith(Cincy T) could make a decent option at RT.
Also I'd like to see us draft Joseph Fauria(UCLA TE) would might be able to land him in the 7th round though if not i'd grab him in the 5th if need be he would add another dimenision to are TE position and help out in the RZ

Overall great mock just a few things that I'd change for my personal liking :) lol

Woody...don't expect any logic from the clowns running our show. MV won't restructure...Lurie should order him to sit...might cost us $3 mil if injured.

3D ya i wasnt sure about moving JP to RT but i just figured every ones preaching for us to get Joeckel so why not pick up Long... he's still young and atleast he's proven already

I like the Long...FA...you got a very good macher.

thaphenom....I also want to add a big run stuffer DT I guy like Terrance Knighton(Jags DT) could provide that in FA if we don't draft a guy. I love Cox/Thorton/Jenkins but none of them are really great run stuffers

BG
id love to get Fauria... i was on that a while ago, but i just couldnt find room to fit him in for us... he's supposed to go around the 4th and id much rather get Rogers WR there or in the 3rd possibly. And i know that Bowe would be unnecessary if we got Hunter and Rogers but i thought if we brought him in itd give those guys some time to get accustomed to the NFL before they became the big time receivers we want

BG
im not really knowledgeable on all the big DTs in the FA so i just avoided that... but i have heard Knightons name a few times so maybe we could get him

You have seen Fauria listed as high as the 4th round everything I have seen on him still have him projected way later in like rounds 5 through 7.... Rodgers will be gone by the 3rd round though hands down only knock on him is the fact he got in trouble during school hence why he transfered from tennesse to tennessee tech

3D...the only concern I have on fauria is his blocking he seems to be incosistent with it sometimes he has nice blocks other times he completely whiffs or gets knocked on his a**.....Coaching can correct that though and at his size he should be a good blocking TE as well as a good recieving mismatch

3D....I meant Rodgers would go no later then the 3rd round he could go higher no doubt wouldn't surprise me at all if he becomes a 1st round WR he has the talent

ya i wouldnt mind taking Rogers in the 3rd if we had to, ive seen him listed as 3-4th rounder and for Fauria i saw him listed as 4th, and have seen him mocked to teams in the 3rd many times
