Eagles sign Michael Vick!



Eagles all the way!!! 2009-2010

See I told yall someone would sign Michael Vick regardless of one Upper Midwest native poster loathing him.

I'm so gonna skip my plans of stalking Marat Safin at the US Open to uh appreciate Michael Vick's athletic (backside) abilities.

Praise the football gods.
Finally some eye candy on the Eagles.

Re: Eagles sign Michael Vick!

Good for the Eagles. I hated what Vick did to those poor dogs. I hope he regretted his actions and understood how evil they were. He has done his time; he paid for his crimes. He deserves a second chance.

Just as all fans, if he plays well, they will forgive and maybe forget. If he sucks, they will no doubt give him a very hard time.

Re: Eagles sign Michael Vick!

By the way, it's not just the Eagles' fans and other NFL fans that Vick is going to have to worry about the most...It’s the animal’s rights activists whom no matter what will not want to give him a second chance. Some of those people are real nuts. They don't even want people to kill flies, ants and mosquitoes. To me, that's beyond crazy. They overshadow the great work that they do every day, which is helping and saving real animals.

Re: Eagles sign Michael Vick!

Good choice for the Eagles. They got him at a STEAL of $1.6 mill for one year, with option for more. Not a bad price, and I think the fans will treat him fine. Great for Vick, who should be happy anyone will take him, and good for the Eagles who needed someone with Mcnabb sucking hard.

Vick, Eagles agree to 2-year deal

By Chris Mortensen
ESPN.com

Vick arrived in Philadelphia Tuesday morning and remained there Wednesday evening. The Eagles will hold a news conference on Friday morning to announce his signing. The first year of the deal is for $1.6 million with an option for the second year at $5.2 million, FoxSports.com reports...

I guess the prick deserves the right 2B a backup for a couple of years, but should only get paid the league minimum for the 6 year NFL veteran he is (between $620,000 and $650,000 as of last year. I liked owner Jeff Lurie for strongly defending Donovan McNabb in the Limbaugh controversy a few years ago. I have (because even the guaranteed year is more than 250% of the league minimum here) lost all respect for Jeff Lurie.

Kounselor Kiwi may no longer be the biggest Eagles hater on this board.

All I have to say is let them come to philly.

I got a little something for them PETA pricks.

I've actually gained respect for Jeffrey Lurie.

Usually he's a cheap fuck like most of the GMs in Philadelphia in the last decade or so which happened to be part of the reason why Philly hasn't won much in the last 25 years.

I love McNabb but I don't have that much faith that he will be injured free all season.
Hopefully he will prove me wrong but if he doesn't then I would rather have Vick running the show than that waste of space Kobb (Feely is a better QB IMO).
I think it's a very smart move.

Re: Eagles sign Michael Vick!

I'd be very surprised if the Eagles list Vick as a quarterback on their roster this season. They would be better off listing him as a running back and using him in Wildcat formations. If the Eagles list him as their #3 quarterback and use him in a game, they lose their other two quarterbacks for the rest of the game.

Vick did his time and he is free move on with his life

But I don't like this, the Eagles don't need another freak circus show atmosphere following them around all season
