Will there be a change in Philly?

Coaching?

QB?

When will the change happen?

I think Reid and Vick are both very close to being let go / benched.

FWIW I'd roll with Nick Foles, the guy looked like a beast in pre-season. It might be good for Vick to get benched for at least a game.

Vicks biggest problem is he has tried (with some but not much success) at being a traditional pocket passer in my opinion and thats not what made him so dangerous to begin with combine that with his blind side protection going down then Vick is probably lucky to be walking still, He is not the answer going forward but they need to let him do what he does best, The Eagles are 3-5 hardly out of the playoff race at this stage but forcing him to be a pocket passer is dumb, either Reid or the QB coach need fired or the O Coordinator over that move, not sure who.

I think there will be a new coach over there at the end of the season...and perhaps a new QB...(Vicks' bro is claiming for trade too :-) )

I'd let Vick run, and if he gets hurt I'd just insert Foles, seems like the best option for Philly.

I think you're right in saying that Reids system forces Vick to stay in the pocket as a drop back passer too much. Honestly I think the Shanahan type system would fit him better than Andy Reids style.

Foles would get killed faster than Vick would with that disgrace of an offensive line. They blocked like total crap last night!

It's really funny because now we are hearing more than one voice in Philly screaming to have Winston Justice back.

You know Justice ain't been giving up sacks. You just don't like him. It's okay I have guys I don't like as well.

No he hasn't given up sacks I know but its not like he has been opening up massive holes in the run game consistently or keeping Luck from having to run from a sack, he had some good and bad, nothing about his play says starter, I have no idea why I wouldnt like him after all I never met him or even seen him give an interview other then Facebook Friday, But if there are current players or former players I dont like then add Team Oblitarator to that list

Vick might get benched somewhere down the road if they don't start winning, Now! Reid will be there until end of the season. If they go 7-9 or less, Reid will be shown the door in the off season. 8-8 or above?? Hazy...

I don't think it has anything to do with them converting him to a pocket passer. The O line is putrid!!! It doesn't matter if he is a pocket passer or a scrambler. The man gets hit on every play. Even the Mike Vick of the Falcons couldn't dodge that many people running full speed at him as soon as the ball is snapped.

No..they're 3-5..and if they flatten Dallas next week...they're back in the'card' race....I'm sure they havent given up at 3-5 and they have a proven coach and QB...stay with them

I doubt it, but they should have fired Ried last year. He'll forever be the reason they lost that Super Bowl to NE with his poor clock management.

Vick was a big no no, and they went for it anyway. Regardless of the o-line, this is nothing new. He's waiting to get hurt, and you have to admit, he does some of it to himself with the stupid running around instead of just throwing the ball.

The play calling is another thing, they will run over a hundred yards against teams and Vick is still throwing it, that is on Ried, with the play calling. Vick had no business what so ever throwing 50 passes against Cleveland when they rushed over 130.

Not to mention, that defense is a joke and they got rid of the scapegoat thinking their all star defense would pick up.

It's pretty darn easy for the Giants year in and year out when the division is ran by Synder, Jones, and Ried.

The entire offense in Philly is a mess, outside of McCoy. O-line is terrible, Vick loves to turn the ball over, playcalling has been brutal, etc. They have one of the best RBs in the game! Give him the ball more often, it's not that difficult.

Yes, Andy Reid is done in Philadelphia. I don't see Vick starting. My recommendation: Hire Russ Grimm from AZ & insert Foles who is less injure prone with a more durable body than Vick. Grimm will fix the Eagles line himself IMO. Like 21isSuperman said use your premier RB more frequently please. Thank you.

Based on what is Nick Foles less injury prone? It is hard to get hurt if you have started ZERO games. Grimm wil fix the line? Apparently you have missed how Kevin Kolb and John Skelton have both been slaughtered behid that line this year. With that said Reid and Vick both need to go. Vick has been awful dating back to last season. Reid has done his time there and it is time for him to start somewhere fresh. Get a coach there that actually wants to use Lesean McCoy.

Anybody is less injury prone than Vick & that includes my 12 year old nephew. haha Apparently, both QBs Kolb & Skelton suck. That's not Russ Grimm's fault. Last time, I checked Russ Grimm was a NFL HOF player who has done miracles with AZ since he landed there. True, he guides the talent/instructs them, but he can't strap on a helmet & play for them on the field. Players must assume some responsibility for their lackluster performance on the field IMO.

The GM brings the talent & the staff coaches said talent. Grimm can only lead athletes to the ProBowl door, he can't hold their hand & walk them through it.

At what point was the performances of Skelton and Kolb even remotely relevant to the discussion? Note how you said Grimm will fix the eagles line which is highly unlikely considering how porous the Cardinals line has been all year. Note how the cardinals lead the league IN SACKS GIVEN UP. and are second in QB hits. Now tell me how Russ Grimm will fix the line in philly?

You brought up both Kolb & Skelton initially sir. I didn't. "Note how you said Grimm will fix the eagles line which is highly unlikely considering how porous the Cardinals line has been all year." Now, that's a bizarre line of thinking...Just because Grimm failed to produce a high caliber line in 1 season that doesn't make him a bust or a failure Truckin Sanders. Bill Belicheck failed to win a Championship in Cleveland yet he won 3 SB rings in NE. The hoodie relocated & became a tremendous success why can't Russ Grimm do the same as well?

It's all about the talent around you on the field & an NFL owner who isn't cheap & stays out of the coaching staff's way. I have no crystal ball here and neither do you sir with all due respect. Russ Grimm deserves a shot at being a HC. I never said hire him exclusively without interviewing other candidates. My expertise is in public relations & locker room chemistry not schemes & formations.

Yes i brought up how they were battered behind that line, not their performance on the field. He has produced the worst line in football. By that token Romeo Crennel failed in Cleveland and oh wait he is failing to in Kansas City. Complete non sequitur do not even try that.

Non sequitur: "A statement that appears unrelated to a statement that follows."

Did I mention Romeo Crennel? No, I did not. Again, that was you sir. Trying to establish a false level of equivalency is an interesting debate strategy sir. I fail to see the rational behind such an unorthodox tactic, but please feel free to try it to your heart's content. To each their own I guess.

Futile: "Lacking serious value, substance, or practical usefulness, ineffective, and fruitless in significance." Like the purpose of continuing this mind numbing conversation.

Good Bye, Bon Voyage, and Dah svee-dah-nee-yah Mr. Truckin Sanders. Have a pleasant evening sir. I am finished with this entire discussion.

Far be it from me to defend Vick, but there is not a single QB that could succeed with the kind of protection he had Monday night. Part of it falls on the coaching, Howard Mudd is yesterday's news in this league. Glad him and his 'small linemen' preference is not in Indy anymore. Most of it falls on bad play calling and blocking schemes. If they're rushing 6, get a hat on a hat and have a quick outlet receiver to make them pay if you don't have time. Instead of having Celek dropping back in pass pro, have him chip somebody and release out in the flat....easy 8 yards or more.

Good job looking up the definition, hence, should recognize your comparison of Bill Bellichick has no bearing on this what so ever. Your premise was simply on what ifs but that facts show Russ Grimm is managing the worst offensive line in football.

I think a majority if the problems are on coaching and personal. I fully expect that team to be gutted next season.

They have no legitimate WR, with an inaccurate QB and a bad defense.

You've got bad play calling aided by lack of quality players. It's a catch 22.

Keep McCoy. Build from that.

    • Sign WR James Jones - It makes too much sense.
      I think we will come out deeper depth wise then people expect. I'm confident Smith and Mitchel will be good players. Especially at the nickel and dime corners. And like I said Mitchel is taller than Vontae and Robinson so he's got the speed and length to play outside. Rose is another guy with some length, speed and they played a number of division 1 receivers at New Mexico state. Glover Wright has length and speed too but I've never seen him play so I'm not totally sure. We had enough confidence to put him on the 53 man roster a couple games so I think there is something they see. He was never cut from the PS at any time I can remember.
    • Cardinals , Cubs and all MLB 2016
      What's up with Maddon taking Jake out after he pitches 7 scoreless Innings? Brings the BullPen in and we give up hits and runs! Jake gets a No Decision, still 9-0 but Cubs lose a game when he pitches SMH! Still 35-15 through 50 games and a huge lead in the Division but this game was disappointing!
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....

    • Mike Adams Isn't Going Anywhere
      I think Green is going to be used very similarly to Geathers -- both possess the physical talents but were a little raw coming out of college.   I think Green will be a special team's beast this year and will also be used in certain defensive packages -- it sounds like they are excited about using him against bigger TEs in the slot and I hope we can use him in certain blitz packages on obvious passing downs due to his speed.
    • 2015-2016 Indiana Pacers (And rest of the NBA) Season
      Just going to play Devil's Advocate here and compare all the teams in the running as well as the Pacers. Indy has a young superstar in Paul George (+5) OKC has a young superstar in Russell Westbrook (+4 because he might be getting tired of Westbrook's playing style and recklessness) Miami doesn't have any young superstars, but a very solid group of starters in Wade, Dragic, and Bosh, and Justice could be great (+3.5 because they're good, but old) Boston doesn't have a young superstar, but does have some solid role players (+2) Los Angeles doesn't have a young superstar, but they have young players with potential (+2.5) Indy, OKC, Miami, and Boston all made the playoffs last year (+1 for each round made) Indy, Miami, Boston all play in the East (+2 to each) Indy and OKC are smaller market teams (+2 each) OKC can offer him the most money (+2) Indy and Miami have legendary guys leading their franchises (+2 each)   Totals: Indy - 12 OKC - 11 Miami - 9.5 Boston - 5 LA - 2.5   Of course, this evaluation is very subjective (and admittedly a little biased), but I think there's a strong case to be made for Indy.  However, that would also require Indy to pursue Durant, which they might not do, and some careful maneuvering of contracts and cap space by Larry.  It may also require the team to go well into the tax, which Herb Simon may not want to do.  A case can be made, but I don't think it will happen.   Last year, the broken Cavs limped into the Finals and LeBron willed them to 2 wins while averaging a bizarre 35+ points per game.  With a healthy Love and Kyrie, I think the Cavs win in 6 or 7.  Unlike Durant and Westbrook, LeBron has shown the ability to perform when the pressure is on.  Plus, the Cavs have had a few extra days of rest, and the Warriors are coming off a taxing series against the Thunder.  I expect the Finals to essentially turn into a glorified 3 point contest.  I also think Draymond's dirty play will finally catch up to him and he will get that last flagrant he needs to get the 1 game suspension.  I also don't see him being able to push the Cavs around like he did with the Thunder.  I can absolutely see the Warriors winning again, but I'm really hoping they don't   Awesome!  He isn't talked about as much as he deserves to be.

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London 
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
