PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – After watching the rival New York Giants win their second Super Bowl in five years, many Philadelphia Eagles fans were left to wonder, “could that be us next year?”

The Eagles will go into the 2012 NFL season with Andy Reid has its head coach for the 14th year, and Michael Vick as its quarterback for the third straight season. Can Reid and Vick pull off what Coughlin and Manning did? Legendary Philadelphia football writer Ray Didinger says it’s possible, but not likely, and the biggest problem might not be Andy Reid.

“Could they do it? Yeah, I guess you could say they could do it, ” Didinger said of the Eagles chances when he spoke to 94 WIP’s Angelo Cataldi and The Morning team on Monday. “The likelihood of them doing it? I would say no. I think that that’s part of the problem. I think it’s maybe the quarterback more than the coach. There’s never been a quarterback like Mike Vick, there’s never been a quarterback who plays the position like he plays it that’s won a world championship. You look at all the guys who have won it, you look at all the guys who have won Super Bowls, and they’ve all played from the pocket. You know, the scramblers, the runners, the highlight film guys, the ones who we said were going to change the game, well they are, but they’re not winning Super Bowls.”

As for Eli Manning, who took home his second Super Bowl MVP trophy (only Joe Montana has three), “he’s punched his ticket to the Hall Of Fame,” Didinger said.

Do you think the Eagles can win a Super Bowl with Andy Reid and Michael Vick? Let us know in the comments.
