It's Time To Break Out The Formula Kiddies.

Posted June 30, 2013
The formula is simple. Mike Vick + any coach= injuries, turnovers, and ultimately that coach getting fired. How is this a formula for greatness? How is this a formula to improve this football team? How do you expect this team to be a championship contender when the quarterback lacks the ability to do so? In other words if you want Mike Vick to start for the Eagles next season (especially if you don't even want him to earn the job) you in effect want to "tank the season." Foles/Barkely/Dixon/Kinne + Kelly =? The truth is none of us truly knows how it could play out with any of these other quarterbacks as options. They could all suck or one of them could be the key to the Eagles return to greatness. The fact is the Eagles will not be a good football team until they fix this quarterback situation. I don't view playing one of these guys as "tanking the season." On the contrary playing one of these guys could be the lynchpin for creating a better era of Eagles football. I would rather find out if that were true than knowingly "tank the season" with injuries, turnovers, and coaches getting fired for trusting in an absolute known failure. The definition of insanity is trying the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Mike Vick is that insanity people.
