    Mort mentioned it on ESPN about 15 minutes ago. I think I'm the only person watching this preseason game.

    I'm writing a check to PETA as we speak. Giggity giggity.

    I don't exactly get the signing, but given McNabb's injury history, I guess it's okay.

    Can you have a double Wildcat with Vick and DeSean Jackson on the field? Wait, will Peta allow it to be called a Wildcat anymore?

    It's a good place for him. Established coach, established quarterback, and if Philly fans boo Santa Claus, figures they'll love Vick.

    Wow - a Super Bowl rematch! Might be interesting to see how Leinart does.

    The UFL is pissed.

    I think this is terrible for McNabb. We've already seen how much he was affected by the constant media barrage when T.O. was in town. Now he's gonna be asked about Michael Vick and all the baggage he brings every day. I think this is a terrible spot to put your team leader in. I'm sure the team went to him and got his blessing, and I'm sure he'll say all the right things. But is this really what this team needs? Vick isn't the missing piece, and I think his presence may do more harm than good. And yes, it's possible my view is clouded by the fact I think Vick is a subhuman piece of shit. Nonetheless, I can see this move backfiring. And Vick better pray he doesn't have to fill in for an injured McNabb because those Philly fans will eat him alive for not living up to McNabb's level of play, which he couldn't do before his layoff.

    Instead of calling it the wildcat, they should go with the bulldog in Philadelphia.

    1. Vick won't be ready to play in an NFL game until Halloween. They weren't running many seven-on-seven drills at his last address.
    2. Vick will only play if McNabb gets hurt.
    3. If Kevin Kolb and A.J. Feeley were your other options, Vick looks more attractive.

    This may not turn out well for the Eagles. But I don't think it's any worse for them than it would have been for any other team. God, there are franchises where the fans and, most importantly, the players, know the QB is a stiff. That would be where Vick's presence would be very destructive.

    As stated on another thread some time ago, I have no moral issue with Vick returning to the NFL. He did the time.
