Thursday, 28 August 2014
Cody Parkey hit the ball so well he got high-fives before his kicks even sailed through the uprights. Parkey made field goals of 54, 53 and 25 yards to help the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New York Jets 37-7 in the preseason finale Thursday night. The Eagles (2-2) and Jets (2-2) rested most of their starters and several backups. Michael Vick made a one-play cameo in his first game back in Philadelphia.

Michael Vick says 'best thing' he has done in NFL is support Riley Cooper (Shutdown Corner)
User Rating: / 0
Thursday, 28 August 2014
Last year about this time, people were wondering if Eagles receiver Riley Cooper's career might be over because of a racial slur caught on camera . That controversy has been mostly forgotten, thanks in large part to Michael Vick's public support for Cooper, something Vick is very proud of. Vick, now the Jets' backup quarterback, helped unite the team in the days and weeks after the fallout of Cooper being seen on camera using a racial slur at a country music concert. He stuck up for him privately with the team and publicly through the media.  "I know what type of person he is," Vick said at the time about Cooper. "That's what makes it hard to understand but easy to forgive him." Cooper ended up being a big part of Philadelphia's NFC East championship team, with an 835-yard, eight-touchdown season. He signed a five-year, $25 million deal with the Eagles. [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league today! ] Vick told ESPN New York's Ian O'Connor that sticking up for Cooper was "the best thing I've done as a professional athlete, absolutely." "I changed the whole dynamic of that situation, and that was a proud moment for me. ... I was able to save a young man's career, and that young man went on to have the greatest year of his career and get a contract that he probably never imagined he would get," Vick told ESPN New York. An unanswered text message from Vick to Cooper this past offseason made some headlines, too. Vick told O'Connor, "A couple of things transpired since [the incident] that I dislike, and I'll be honest with you - after he signed his contract, I sent him a text and I never got a text back, and that made me feel a certain type of way. But I'm not the type of guy who holds grudges." Vick told Yahoo Sports that he talked about it with Cooper and his relationship with Cooper is still one where they “support” each other. Vick called Cooper on Wednesday to talk about the issue. All this comes with Vick set to return to Philadelphia on Thursday night as a member of the Jets for both teams' final preseason game, his first trip back to the Eagles since he signed with the Jets as a free agent this offseason. Vick is expected to be greeted warmly by the Eagles faithful, who largely embraced the dynamic quarterback and his tremendous leadership role with the team. "The two things that best define my legacy in Philadelphia are building 'Team Vick Field' for at-risk youth and leading honest locker room discussions about race. These moments are bigger than football,” Vick said in an email, through his publicist. “I made life-long friends with many former teammates including Riley Cooper. I talked with Riley on the phone [Wednesday]. I support him and he supports me. I look forward to seeing everyone on the field. There is going to be a lot of smiles." In the Jets locker room, Vick has been warmly greeted and even admired by many of the younger players (with one having called him "Sir" in the huddle during offseason workouts) as he's gracefully taken on a mentor role to second-year quarterback Geno Smith. It's a new chapter for a player who will always be known for his own controversy, his role in a dog-fighting ring that ended his career in Atlanta and sent him to jail. Vick doesn't play in Philadelphia anymore, but his impact will still be felt every time Cooper contributes to an Eagles win.  More on the Jets:

Joe Webb has a job beyond the weekend. Landry Jones would like one too. Whether the Pittsburgh Steelers' third-string quarterback gets to stick around beyond the weekend could depend on how he fares in Thursday night's preseason finale against Webb and the Carolina Panthers. ''I need to see consistent above-the-line play in all areas,'' Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said when asked about the former Oklahoma star's status.

Chip Kelly has Eagles fans thinking Super Bowl (The Associated Press)

Tuesday, 26 August 2014
Chip Kelly took the Philadelphia Eagles from worst to first in the division in one year, raising expectations to championship-or-bust levels in a city starved for a Super Bowl victory. There hasn't been this much excitement surrounding the Eagles going into a season since Terrell Owens was catching passes from Donovan McNabb a decade ago. The Eagles went all the way to the Super Bowl in 2004 before losing to New England 24-21. Fans are counting on Kelly, the offensive mastermind who brought his unique coaching philosophy and up-tempo offense to the NFL after turning Oregon into an NCAA powerhouse.

Steelers consider suspensions for Bell, Blount (The SportsXchange)
User Rating: / 0
Monday, 25 August 2014
Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said on Monday that both of the team's top running backs, Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount, will be punished for being arrested on marijuana possession charges last week, and Tomlin did not rule out the possibility of suspending them for the regular-season opener. Besides the arrest on marijuana possession, Bell was also charged with driving under the influence. Bell and Blount are the only running backs on the Steelers' roster who have carried the ball in an NFL regular-season game, so losing either would be a significant blow to the team when it plays the Cleveland Browns in the regular-season opener. In addition, the Steelers are focused on establishing a better running game this season.

Michael Vick says he is ''absolutely'' OK with how things transpired in Philadelphia last season, when he lost his starting job to Nick Foles after being injured. Vick, now the backup to Geno Smith with the New York Jets, says Monday that he never wants ''to play second fiddle to anybody,'' but didn't want to become a distraction as the Eagles got into a groove with Foles as the quarterback. Vick, who signed with New York in March, is expected to take a few snaps Thursday night when he returns to Philadelphia in the Jets' preseason finale.

Brett Keisel's preseason work is usually done by now. The veteran Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end will likely see plenty of action Thursday night when the Steelers face Carolina in their annual meeting in the preseason finale. The 35-year-old needs the work after re-signing with the Steelers last week. ''Coach T (Mike Tomlin) was joking that I haven't played in a Carolina game since the early 2000s, so it'll be great to get back out there,'' Keisel said Monday.
