The web has been ablaze recently on how to stop the new "runaway MVP candidate " Vick and the rest of the Eagles explosive offense. Desean Jackson has always had good games against us and Maclin is having a breakout season this year and seeing how our defense got carved up by Jon Kitna we might be worried on how our defense will stop them.
I find the Eagles offense quite like the Cowboys. They have two or three good recievers for down the field and each have a running game of their own type. The Cowboys have HBs that needed to be accounted for while you need to watch for Vick and the short screen game to McCoy and the WR's.

In my opinion Grant has been outplaying Rolle but i think we will see alot of nickle and our 3 Safetys game plan with the 4-2-5 being our base defense. I think they will play Rolle as a the box safety or the LB/S that will aid the LBs with the run and cover the HB or extra TE. I think with our front four with Boley and Bulluck/Goff can shut down the eagles mediocre Run offense and hopefully pressure the Vick into some bad desicions. But we must either keep him in pocket or hit him HARD so he dosent want to venture out.
Thanks for the read and just a couple discussion topics:
Player that scares you the most on Birds O,
Giants player that will have to step up,
3 safetys or 3 CB on the field?
