The Next Top Selling Jersey in the NFL!
I think I’m still a bit shell shocked to hear the news that Michael Vick ended up in Philly. The Eagles were never one of the teams pundits like Jay Glazer and Chris Mortensen talked about as being realistic possibilities. After all, Donovan was finally a happy camper, so why do anything now to disrupt that harmony with the season looming just a few weeks away?
Well, as it turns out, Donovan himself was lobbying behind the scenes for the organization to sign Vick all along. And when you think about it, it makes quiet a bit of sense. Donovan has wanted the Eagles to step up and bring in some serious weapons for him to work with. Well, Vick may not have been the receiver he was hoping for, but a weapon he is none the less.
Most impressive of all was Andy Reid. It was only 2 days ago that he was sitting on that ESPN tour bus, playing possum with Chris Mortensen, saying Vick deserved a second chance while acting like he really wanted nothing to do with him at all. Thankfully, Reid is skilled in the art of bluffing.
Ahhhh…. I can see it now, both McNabb and Vick in the same back field, at the same time… and both are standing in the shotgun! As a defense, what are you supposed to do? Oh, my chops are starting to get wet just thinking about my keeper league team where I have Donovan as my starting QB.
