The Philadelphia Eagles and the Seattle Seahawks are missing a lot of players this Thursday night. But the Eagles are the ones who are probably the most banged up, primary among them the loss of their starting signal-caller.
Michael Vick has had a disappointing season, and the injury he sustained to his ribs will keep him out this Thursday night. It's not like the Eagles QB would have guaranteed victory on Thursday night (his performances have been up and down this season), but Vick being out does gravely limit Philly's passing effectiveness with the football.
Vince Young will take his place. Young had one decent performance against the New York Giants on Sunday Night and proved he could move the football against the New England Patriots. But this will definitely be one of the most hostile road environments in the country he'll be going up into at CenturyLink Field. The Seahawks defense will do their best to limit Young.
