Eagles end the 2012 Season with Loss to Giants

Michael Vick more than likely has thrown his last pass as a Philadelphia Eagle.The Philadelphia Eagles’ 2012 season ended today at Metlife Stadium with a truly horrifying loss to the New York Giants, 42-7. The 14th season of Andy Reid as the Eagles head coach has also ended and quite possibly has coached his last Eagles game. There was nothing redeeming about this loss or the qualify of the effort put out on the field by many players on the 4-12 team. Michael Vick started the game and Trent Edwards finished it. Nnamdi Asomugha was benched.

The game started exactly like Reid’s coaching career in Philadelphia began…with a recovered onside kick. It would last all of 5 plays before Vick threw a ball over Brent Celek‘s head and landed in …

Eagles Drop to the Bengals 34-13

Eagles Safety Colt Anderson was a bright spot in Thursday's Eagles lossWhat started out as a promising game (and a lower draft pick), ended in an abysmal loss (but a higher draft pick). Losing 34-13 is never a good thing, but I look at it as a perfect result. As the first half proved, the young players on this team show a lot of promise for the future. Nick Foles played well in the first half, outperforming Andy Dalton and showing that he can make most of the throws. But, in the second half he looked like a rookie, under-throwing Maclin on a sure touchdown and made some other mistakes, but it is a growing process. Last night as a whole was not something to write home about on the offensive side of the ball, …
