Week Five presents the 49ers with yet another tough, but interesting matchup. The Philadelphia Eagles visit Candlestick park Sunday Night for what's sure to be a hard-fought battle between the ailing 49ers and the resurgent Eagles.
The rebuilding Eagles have been struck by lightning with Michael Vick's 2010 renaissance. The left-handed quarterback phenomena with blinding speed had returned, and he's posted numbers and wins that are hard to argue with.
Philadelphia is back in the hunt for the NFC East crown this year, and they likely view San Francisco as a minor speed bump. The 49ers need to show them this road is closed.
Coming off yet another heart breaker, Mike Singletary's brute squad has not put together a winning effort. The only victories for the 49ers have been moral victories, and those don't show up in the standings.
