Vince Young, Eagles not giving up hope on this dream season

As the Eagles continue to hit snooze on this dream season, some players may want to start exploring their options for 2012.

Vince Young, who is likely to start his third straight game Thursday night, is on a one-year deal and certainly has a chance to turn some heads with a strong performance. However, the former Pro-Bowl quarterback claims he isn’t looking that far ahead.

“I’m not really thinking about that right now,” Young said yesterday. “I’m just, like I said I want to go out there and compete and lead my team to combat and make sure that I’m calling the plays right, adjusting and doing all of the different things from practice and bring it out to the game field.”

Mike Vick threw balls to receivers on the side at the start of yesterday’s practice, but was once again listed as a nonparticipant. Coach Andy Reid said he is making progress and hasn’t ruled him out.

“He can’t torque, put the heavy torque on the ball without feeling some pain there,” Reid said. “So I’ve just got to wait and see. Until that goes away, he can’t throw consistently.”

Meanwhile, Young continues to prepare as if he is the starter and took the first-team reps. Young said the team is focused and hasn’t given up, as he referenced his 2009 Titans that started 0-6 and nearly made the playoffs.

“I tell all of the guys that I’ve been in this situation before,” he said. “You know, 0-6 and we ended the season just a game short of missing the playoffs. We just have to continue to keep working and worry about ourselves and not worry about anyone else.”

Babin rips former team

Jason Babin only spent two seasons in Seattle.

However, the bad blood from his time there still lingers.

Babin started the day by tweeting the following: “Ready to physically show my disdain to Seattle, they treated the Babin family bad. #BlameMikeH #SinsOfTheFather.”

When asked about the harsh feelings before practice yesterday, the defensive end said: “It’s not easy to play in a new place, not being wanted and kind of being treated badly. You have your position coach not talk to you, head coach tell you, ‘I didn’t want you.’”
