Thehas been having a great season under starter , but there are still lots of flaws with the Eagles the rest of the season. Although they are putting up exceedingly phenomenal offensive statistics, the Eagles defense among other things is still lacking, with or without . Now to my wish list for the Eagles this Christmas:
With Michael Vick’s mobility, the offensive line for the Eagles is still slacking. Since Vick’s mobility assists in escaping the pocket, the offensive line feels it is no longer a necessity to maintain a line but rather a preferable option. Withunder center, it was a necessity, and the line generally maintained a pocket better.
Fortunately, LeSean McCoy is having somewhat of a productive season. Unfortunately, as a running back, he is no longer a requirement for this offense since Vick has the same number of rushing touchdowns as he does and more than half the yardage. Compared to Cleveland Browns’ Peyton Hillis or‘ Adrian Peterson, he is more of an afterthought in the offense.
Get Tight End Brent Celek More Involved
Unfortunately, despite all the talk, Brent Celek must be frustrated. True, he is acting professional around the Michael Vick situation, but that doesn’t mean he is still unhappy about it. With Michael Vick under the helm, he’s now an afterthought in the Eagles offense.

Wide receive and punt returner DeSean Jackson has performed admirably with 45 receptions, 1,024 yards and 6 touchdowns to date. Additionally, he might have saved the Eagles season with his 65-yard return against the
Decide What to Do with Backup Quarterback Kevin Kolb
Backup quarterback and former starting quarterback Kevin Kolb may be biding his time with the Philadelphia Eagles, but even with his nature, he won’t be content sitting on the sidelines. Kolb performed solidly early in the season until he met the Tennessee Titans defense. After his 2 interceptions and 56.9 quarterback rating against the Titans, he was soon replaced by Michael Vick.
Give a Contract Extension to Michael Vick
Quarterback Michael Vick has been having a great season so far with 20 touchdowns, 5 interceptions and an overall 103.6 quarterback rating to date. However, two things go against him. With him at the helm, those teammates around him are used less and less, with the exception of the two receivers DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin. Tight end Brent Celek and running backs LeSean McCoy and
Replace Backup Jerome Harrison
With Michael Vick continuously rushing more and more, the Eagles running backs are less a necessity, particularly when they are a backup running back. Jerome Harrison may have been traded to a winning team and a winning coach, but his under-utilization may be even affecting him. He has had 5 touches over the last 5 games with only 25 yards rushing and 0 touchdowns.
Improve on the Health of the Eagles Defense
With cornerback Asante Samuel fighting through a knee injury and free safety Nate Allen out for the season, this Eagles defense is hurting and hurting back. With the loss of linebacker Stewart Bradley until the end of the season minimally, it could affect the Eagles chances of clinching a playoff berth and the NFC East. However, time is short, and the defense has fallen precipitously into 21st against the pass. On the bright side, they still ranked 11th against the run.

With the Giants losing the previous game, they are still in the hunt, but they may have two somewhat difficult games ahead with the
Win the NFC Division
Most likely, they will have to face either the Atlanta Falcons or the Chicago Bears. Betting the odds, I would have to say the Atlanta Falcons are the most likely opponent. The Falcons, unlike the Eagles, are not quite as explosive, but they are considerably more balanced. With their running back Michael Turner and their wide receivers Roddy White and their receiving tight end Anthony Gonzalez, this is one offense to be reckoned with.
Win the Super Bowl
This is going to be a tall order, considering most likely the Philadelphia Eagles, if they make it this far, is going to face the Tom Brady and the. As explosive as the Eagles are, the Eagles lack the sufficient depth on offense — that is, usable depth. Coach Andy Reid doesn’t use all available resources at his disposal, unlike the previous seasons, and the team is in more ways than not, one-dimensional. Michael Vick is that one-dimension, and the Patriots defense will smell that out a mile away and put a stop to it.
