There was a breakdown in protection. Hard to keep quarterbacks upright when you lose the following starters on the offensive line: left tackle Jason Peters, center Jason Kelce, right guard Danny Watkins and right tackle Todd Herremans. McCoy was not too interested in blocking - he whiffed on quite a few plays.
Teams brought a lot of pressure on Vick. The passing attack did not make it easy for him to roll and run. Nevertheless, his decision-making on whether to run or throw resulted in easy sacks. Well, Vick has a lot of problems...
The Eagles were mostly winners. That speaks to the job that Reid has done.
