DeSean Jackson Throws Defense Under Bus, Vick Lashes Out as Dream Team Has Nightmarish Start

The good news for Vick and Maclin’s injuries does not get the Eagles out of their early pit.

While the team attempts to steady the course by sticking with their defense’s base personnel change from last week, one offensive player is speaking out. “The defense really has to step up and rally around and kind of help us with momentum and things like that,” Desean Jackson told reporters postgame.

Michael Vick wants to see more consistent officiating. ““Everybody saw the game. I’m on the ground constantly. All the time. Every time I throw the ball, in all my highlights and just watching film in general, every time I throw the ball, I’m on the ground, getting hit in the head, and I don’t know why I don’t get the 15-yard flags like everybody else does,” he said. The NFL has yet to fine Vick for his statements.

The frightening thing for the Eagles is that – if the Cowboys win tonight – they will have a surreal four straight games (and a 9 of their final 13) against 2-1 or 3-0 teams.

Also, with Tony Romo and Rex Grossman playing their third game tonight, 10 of these 13 games for the Eagles are against passers in the top 15 of QB rating.
