Looking For Some Absolution In Week 9: The NFL Breakdown

If absolution is what teams and fans are looking for during the heady pairings week 9 has in store, disappointment is sure to prevail. There are some amazing things going on in the NFL right now, a few undefeated teams fighting to keep it that way, and it seems that a few of our professional franchises haven’t even found a rhythm or stride yet. The latter is a mistake of gargantuan proportions, as it will take an enormous string of misfortunes and pandemonium at the top in order for the stragglers catch up now.

Starting with the New Orleans Saints, we can begin to see what an earth shattering season this is turning out to be, the Saints setting out to defend their 7-0 record this week, going against, of all teams, the Carolina Panthers. Now, this might not seem like such a tough endeavor, as the Panthers are 3-4 currently and have lost to teams that the Saints have completely dominated. But there’s just something about this team lead by John Fox that tends to knock the Saints for a loop. Six out of seven consecutive games against the Panthers have found the Saints on the losing end.

Aside from this exciting face-off, we also get to see the Dallas Cowboys take on the Eagles, and it is rather surprising that the Eagles are favored to win this one. The New York Giants are vying for a win over the Chargers this Sunday as well, and are favored to take it with little hassle. Maybe you’re more interested in watching the Buccaneers square off against Green Bay in a game that they are expected to lose.

Brilliant Idea Or Bad Move? Michael Vick Signs With The Eagles

Much to the surprise of Eagles fans and the general populace alike, Michael Vick was welcomed back into NFL and signed up for a spot on the Philadelphia Eagles’ roster.

This controversial move not only has fans on edge, but some of the other NFL teams as well. Vick, referred to as “the ultimate Wildcat quarterback”, signed a one year contract with an option for a second year on August 13th. The very next day, the Giants began working on ways that they could defend against the Wildcat play. Coincidence? Tom Coughlin says it is, but many fans find that statement hard to believe.

While some are surprised about Vick being signed, others don’t find it surprising in the least. Before Vick was known for being convicted and sentenced to serve 18 months in federal prison in 2007, he was known for being a three-time Pro Bowl pick during his 6 seasons with the Atlanta Falcons. He was also known for being a gifted athlete and scrambler. Now, both he and the coach of the Eagles are becoming known for the second chance he’s being given, and both claim that it’s not being taken lightly.  When asked about the situation in a recent interview, Andy Reid said:

“I know some people will not agree, but on the other hand I think the majority will. Fortunately, in this country, if we handle ourselves properly, we are given an opportunity for second chances. I think people will understand.”

Many have whispered that signing Vick is a bad move on the part of the Eagles, but others have said it was a brilliant idea. While there may be a brief public backlash, it’s believed that once the season is underway people’s memories of the events that took place 2 years ago will fade and be replaced by newer memories full of stunning passes and touchdown runs. Besides, fans love excitement, and the return of Vick to the NFL is toward the top of the “exciting events” list. Philadelphia Eagles Tickets can be purchased at
