Who's picking the Eagles?


Time for our weekly look at who's picking the Eagles, along with some other links sprinkled in.

And a reminder that I'll be chatting live from the Linc today at 1 during the game.'s Peter King has the Eagles covering the 15-point spread with a 30-10 win:

I only know one thing about this game, other than the outcome: Michael Vick is going to get a lot more action than 11 insignificant plays.

All of ESPN's experts pick the Eagles.'s Jason Whitlock criticizes Michael Vick for starring in his own reality show:

NFL quarterback is a full-time job, a full-time responsibility. Vick doesn't have a legitimate, mature interest in football. The NFL is a simply a tool for money and fame. Vick desires celebrity, a job with no real responsibility. has the Birds, 25-12.'s Alex Marvez gives Eagles fans credit for not booing Vick:

In another market, Vick's NFL return would have been met with heavy protests. But the City of Brotherly Love has embraced Vick since his August signing. Of course, the main reason is a selfish one — the belief that Vick could be the missing piece to help Philadelphia finally win a Super Bowl.'s Pete Prisco goes with the Eagles, 31-13:

Donovan McNabb returns as a starter for the first time since breaking a rib in the opener. He faces a Tampa Bay team playing a second consecutive road game. This one will be a lot tougher than last week against the Redskins. McNabb doesn't show any rust. This will be a blowout.

All three Yahoo experts and 97 percent of Yahoo users pick the Birds.

Pro Football Talk has the Eagles big, 48-10:

The Eagles don’t lose games like this at home. Typically, games like this end up with very ugly outcomes. Then again, ugly is in the eye of the entity on which the ugliness is visited. For Eagles fans, it’ll be a thing of beauty.
