Who Is At Fault For The Eagles Problems On Offense, Reid Or Vick?

The problems on offense lay more at the feet of the head coach than the quarterback. While Vick altered his method of turnover this week (fumble rather than interception) and still holds onto the ball way too long, his downfall Sunday was just as attributable to his teammates and his coaches as it was to him. Reid takes the yeoman's blame because he wears two hats, that of coach and head of player personnel. The Birds game plan was ill-advised and ineffective.

The Eagles roster they brought to the game and the season did not have near enough depth on the depleted offensive line and came close to getting Vick killed, again! After the game Andy put himself front and center on the blame carpet, a spot he earned and deserves.

While Big Red's play calling lacks balance, it has always lacked balance. He likes to throw the ball, that's no secret. It's Vick's execution that has been atrocious, more atrocious than anyone could have predicted. He can't read defenses, he can't protect the football, and he refuses to adjust. Hey Mike, quarterbacks can audible you know---change the play every now and then?

Nine turnovers (6 INT's) in three games, and we just keep saying next week will be better. Well, it's getting worse...not better.
