Eagles' Michael Vick enters Week 10 with no turnovers

By Jason Reid

Of all the impressive things about Michael Vick's performance this season, the Philadelphia Eagles' star quarterback has no turnovers.

In five games this season, Vick has completed 60.8 percent of his passes for 1,017 yards and seven touchdowns with no interceptions. He also has rushed for 261 yards (with a 7.3-yard average) and two touchdowns with no fumbles lost.

Vick's ability to take care of the football could be among the keys Monday night when the Redskins play host to Eagles at FedEx Field.

Eagles Coach Andy Reid is reluctant to discuss Vick's impressive ball security because "right when you start worrying about that stuff is right when you start fumbling and throwing interceptions. I think he is just all-around playing good football and I can't go in either direction with that. There is not enough wood to knock on here."

After missing three games because of a rib injury suffered during a Week 4 loss to the Redskins, Vick appeared to be in top form in his return to the lineup last week. The three-time Pro Bowler led the Eagles to a 26-24 victory against the Indianapolis Colts with an outstanding overall performance.

Vick completed 17 of 29 passes for 218 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions and rushed for 74 yards (with a 7.4-yard average) and another touchdown. He had a strong passer rating of 93.7.

For his efforts, Vick was named the NFC offensive player for Week 9.

"I will tell you that they [the Colts] have a pretty good defense, too, and he did a decent job," Reid said of Vick. "Yes, he is pretty good."

So Vick is offensive.. I agree! He has 65% K-9 losses.

ZEKE’S UNIQUE PERSPECTIVES brought to you by the fine people at Yahoo!

Every season has a midpoint (no, I won’t be giving out grades), and it comes with the same warning you get with that mutual fund purchase – past performance is not a guarantee of future results.

Yet, more often than not, the Skins first half DOES resemble the second half.

Year: 1st half record and 2nd half record
2004: 3-5 and 3-5
2005: 5-3 and 5-3
2006: 3-5 and 2-6
2007: 5-3 and 4-4
2008: 6-2 and 2-6
2009: 2-6 and 2-6

5 times in the past 6 years, the first half and second half records were very similar. If history repeats, we finish within a game of 8-8. Though 2007 looks similar between the 2 halves, it wasn’t. 5-3 turned into 5-6 and then Sean Taylor got murdered. The emotional team finished with 4 straight wins, while playing at a very high level.

The last time the Redskins won more games in the second half of the season was in 2001, with Schottenheimer at the helm (no 2001 Skins are on the 2010 roster, Albright and Samuels came closest). Worth mentioning, the greatest era of Skins football, the Gibbs 1.0 years, were noted for strong finishes.

I see no obvious reason for the second half of 2010 to deviate from the script of recent years, but I see more downside risk than upside.

We play an improved philly team this week, and the jints, maybe the best in the NFC, twice. Tennessee is a formidable team, with a very aggressive defense and 3 unique weapons on offense. Surprising Tampa is a load this year. These 5 games are against teams with 5 or more Ws right now.

The softest opponents are Jax, who have still managed to be 4-4, and the ‘pukes. We’ll get Minny in a couple weeks, likely with their under the radar MVP, Sidney Rice, back. After Sunday's loss, though Minny looks like they are close to done.

To go 4-4 in the 2nd half would be a solid accomplishment. It means winning the 2 softer games, and getting 2 upsets in the other 6. The defense has top 5 talent and Brandon Banks can transform a game (only for the better, so far). If the offense pitches in, we can get some quality wins. I haven’t given up on playoffs. At the start of the 2010, I gave us a 1 in 4 chance -- the odds are probably a tad worse.

There is one thing I would love to see – a marker that tells me we are in a different era. That would be a win over the jints. We’ve lost 7 of 8 to them (the W came in the windstorm game in the post ST21 run) and it has been our major matchup problem. Get to 8-8, including a win over the jints, and this season has the potential to be the building block many of us hoped it would become.

And that is your midterm version of ZEKE’S UNIQUE PERSPECTIVES, as always brought to you by the fine people at Yahoo!

However, iH8 predicts his girlfriend goes to bed sometime before the 1st 2 minute warning.

Yeah, I should have been arrested that game. I didn't do the pepper spray, but I did everything else.

A friend of mine told two LARGE Eagles fans at one point to "sit down and shut up, you Philadelphia fagg0ts!"

I thought we were going to get into it for sure, and, of course, he stands about 5'4". I was so proud (relieved) when they turned around and sat down. Didn't hear another word out of them.

THEN, like 3 minutes later, a bunch of Redskins fans started sitting behind us, telling us, "we had your back" and "good job" and stuff.

I still have a bad feeling that if it had been "ON," I would have ended up getting my a$$ whooped. I'm sure I could have counted on our "backup" to point out the perps for us after the fact though.

Hail. This game scares me. Good news is, we don't really have much to lose. We're 4-4.

Report: Redskins sign McNabb to five-year extension
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on November 15, 2010, 3:30 PM EST
Donovan McNabb has secured another financial apology.

ESPN’s Michael Smith reports that the Redskins have signed McNabb to a five-year, $78 million extension with a reported $40 million guaranteed. Yep, the organization has doubled down on McNabb just days after benching him for Rex Grossman.

As always, we’ll wait until we see the contractual details before evaluating. The final years of the contract are likely meaningless, and we’ve seen that some “guaranteed” money is often anything but when you look closer.

With that out of the way, this clearly a serious and somewhat stunning financial commitment from the Redskins. McNabb will surely be locked in Washington through the 2011 season at a minimum.

Starting Monday night, McNabb gets to make the organization look smart for all their faith or foolish for sinking more money into a doomed partnership with Mike Shanahan.

As always, we’ll wait until we see the contractual details before evaluating. The final years of the contract are likely meaningless, and we’ve seen that some “guaranteed” money is often anything but when you look closer.

With that out of the way, this clearly a serious and somewhat stunning financial commitment from the Redskins. McNabb will surely be locked in Washington through the 2011 season at a minimum.

Starting Monday night, McNabb gets to make the organization look smart for all their faith or foolish for sinking more money into a doomed partnership with Mike Shanahan.

Huh, guess the staff didn't think so poorly of McNabb after all. What a bunch of retarded schmucks these newsies really are.

You know what's really despicable Scamp? The same media geniuses that has railroaded this topic for 2 weeks will now spin it like this contract is an "Apology" of some sort. It's already starting. I guarantee you this will not die, but instead this extension will be portrayed and remuneration for the "racially motivated benching" McNabb was put through by the team. Awful.

Congratulations to McNabb. Love the timing of the move, too. Now, maybe the cut Roydell Williams while everyone is distracted. You know how rowdy those Roydell fans can be.

He's in the backroom playing with his Vinny Cerrato poseable action figure.

The Redskin organization did the right
thing re-signing DM5 for that deal, esp
just before tonight's game. The pressure is
off tonight. He can focus on victory over the Eagles now, showing them what a drastic mistake that organization made. Since the Giants lost yesterday, this is a monster MUST game for us. When we win tonight, this division will be up for grabs. All we have to do is beat the Giants
twice and do well versus our other opponents. It would be great if we can go
6 and Oh against Division opponents. We are
the only team in our Division who can do so... HAIL...
