Blame Vick. Pretty lame. Oh how convenient!

Posted January 07, 2013

I hate to say it but it looks like business as usual with our executive team.  They drag Vick through the mud, bench him for a rookie, make cklear by their actions that he is no longer wanted , then claim its his inflexibility that lost the Eagles the opportunity for Chip Kelly.  Really?  Is that how we are going to due business.  The Eagles paved the road now they have to figure out how to get the cars on it.  I mean I thought Vick would be used but this is what I would term as a cheezy display.  First you have your three top executives(one the owner) jetting around interviewing.  I havent ever seen an owner do that.  I may be wrong but appears desperate.  And in true Eagle form they are getting the press results they like which is that they are in the hunt for the so called best.  Not unusual since we have seen the Eagles associated with every big name that comes down the road.   Now I said they would use Vick as a bargaining chip but I never imagined that his salary would somehow play into the direct negotiation.  Thats pitiful.  I mean if Im a potential candidate Im saying to myself is this the type of methods this front office uses to cut deals.  Its downright shameful.  Thye have no class and to think Lurie is considered the priveledged class its embarrassing.  They are deterring the best candidates with these childish displays,  I hope theyve learned that they cant operate like they did in the later Reid years or it will be futile.  The best Eagle era was the Donovan era its time he gets his due.
