Here's the player-by-player breakdown of the Eagles' defensive performance against the Browns after having re-watched the game: Jason Babin - Quiet game for Babin.

Myth vs. reality: Vick against the blitz

Wednesday, August 24, 2011, 1:52 PM
Michael Vick's performance against the blitz will be an enormous factor in determining the success of the 2011 Eagles offense. That part you already know.
