Michael Vick, Jeremy Maclin Inactive For Eagles Vs. Seahawks

The Philadelphia Eagles might have LeSean McCoy in action when they play the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday Night football. That's pretty much the only good news Philly can hear when it comes to this game.

Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has been declared inactive for tonight's contest, as has wide receiver Jeremy Maclin. Both of them are pretty critical cogs, and could slow down Philadelphia's passing attack. We all know how much Andy Reid wants to go pass-heavy in any game he coaches, so this could be a problem.

Vince Young is perfectly serviceable (and has proven that he's able to keep Philadelphia's offense moving the right way). But with no number one option in Maclin to connect to, it should allow the Seahawks defense to try and key in on DeSean Jackson and force Young to look at Jason Avant and Riley Cooper more on the outside. Also the Seahawks will probably be watching Young closely in monitoring his scrambling ability.
