The Eagles players may not be loudly setting expectations this year like they did last summer, but that doesn't mean they aren't being set by people outside of the organization.

The Eagles are already considered by many in the media to be a Super Bowl contender, but you can now add Ron Jaworski to the list of people who expects big things from the Eagles this season- and especially Michael Vick.

Speaking on ESPN today about the franchise quarterback, Jaworski talked in-depth about how when Vick is on his game, no other quarterback in the league can do what he does.

"There is not another quarterback in the NFL with Vick’s dynamic combination of passing skills and explosive running ability. There are some plays only Vick can make."

"Vick has shown he is capable of throwing the ball exceptionally well from the pocket," said Jaworski. "His overall throwing skill set can be top five in the league"

But can Vick stay healthy enough to make those plays? Using a great quote from Dick Vermeil- "The problem with quarterbacks who can run is- they run"- Jaworski said that if Vick can play the full 16 games this season, he should have a career year.

Staying healthy has always been a problem for Vick, and with Jason Peters likely gone for the entire season, it could become even more of a problem this year.

Jaworski brought up one point that was pretty unbelievable to hear- Vick has not had a full NFL off-season as the starting quarterback of a team since 2006. Now that he is finally taking part in his first full off-season as a starter in 6 years, Jaworski has set the ceiling very high for Vick.

"I am really excited to see Michael Vick in 2012," said Jaworksi. "A more disciplined player will result in fewer turnovers. I would not be surprised if we’re getting ready to see the best year of Vick’s ten-year career."

Eagles fans certainly hope so.
