I’m not sure test driving sports cars hours before a big game can be classified as irresponsible, but if you’re the quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles, being photographed test driving cars can definitely cause an uproar.
Crossing Broad is reporting that Michael Vick allegedly was test driving Lamborghini’s on Interstate 95 hours before the Eagles huge matchup against the Chiefs.
A Twitter user who works as a car salesman allegedly took this photo of Vick test driving the expensive sports car hours before kickoff against the Chiefs.
Of course social media, and message boards here in Philadelphia are going crazy. Another reader took to Twitter as well to try and confirm that it was Vick doing 95 mph or 95.
@CrossingBroad this pic was taking coming over the bridge around 3pm..it looks exactly like the car in your article! pic.twitter.com/F1nNre3p8r

It’s definitely a players right to do what he chooses before a ballgame as long as he’s not putting himself or the team in jeopardy.
If Vick wants to test drive sports cars that’s his choice. I’m not sure the 40 minutes he spent in cars took away from the Eagles game plan.
But being the Philadelphia native, Vick is going to catch hell on the radio and blogs today.

According to CBS 21 News, a Michael Vick autograph signing was canceled at Buffalo Wild Wings after the owners of JJ Cards N Toys received death threats for hosting the event.
Joe Bartolo told me this afternoon the signing was postponed after he claims death threats were made against him, his wife Jamie — the owners of JJ Cards N Toys — and their family for organizing Vick’s...
Marcus Vick has been encouraged to stay off Twitter, if not to protect himself from making poor choices, then at least to protect his older brother, Michael Vick, from having to deal with extra silliness (or stupidity).
But seeing the Internet attack the elder Vick again during a Monday night loss was apparently too much for Marcus Vick. After going off the deep end last year in...
Michael Vick has been the guy a lot of young NFL players looked up to when they were growing up.
Vick left Virginia Tech when a lot of the young players in the NFL were just early teenagers, and I’m sure it’s been a dream for most of them to play with or against him.
One of those players was Chiefs star defensive back Eric Berry. The former Tennessee Vol’s safety grew up...
Marcus Vick is known for a couple of things, besides being the little brother to Michael Vick, and neither are flattering. One, he famously stomped on Elvis Dumervil way back when in college. Two, he says stupid things on Twitter,…Read more →
San Diego Chargers outside linebacker Dwight Freeney believes that neither Michael Vick or any quarterback will last playing the position in Chip Kelly's offence.Freeney said in an interview with Erik Kuselias due to be aired Thursday night on NBCSN's Pro Football Talk, that: "The problem is with that offence, to be honest with you, is the quarterback position and...
No quarterbacks in the league will profess their appreciation for their offensive line's play more than the Philadelphia Eagles Michael Vick and the Chicago Bears Jay Cutler. These two elite quarterbacks have started the year with a bang with clutch performances and big numbers. This is after a year where both players took a pounding and played well below their capabilities....
It didn’t take long for NFL defenses to figure out how to stop Chip Kelly. Actually, Philadelphia Eagles QB Mike Vick did it for them. Vick threw two interceptions, including one returned for a TD by Kansas City Chiefs DB Eric Berry. Vick was also sacked five times as Kansas City’s defense disrupted Kelly’s read-option offense. And Vick fumbled the ball away after being sacked...
Last night was a classic tale of a football team beating themselves. The Philadelphia Eagles looked like the better team, offensively (for most of the night), but turnovers will kill you. First Damaris Johnson muffs a punt and the Chiefs recover and turn it into 3 points, then Michael Vick follows that up with a Pick Six and the Chiefs jump out to a QUICK 10-0 lead. The Eagles...
The Philadelphia Eagles have looked unstoppable at times in their first two games of the season under Chip Kelly. Their offense is lightning-fast and looks like it has enough talent to light up almost any opposing defense. Michael Vick has been a major part of that, but it only makes sense to wonder if he […]
Is it better to be lucky, or better to be good? Is it better to play it safe, or is it better to take risks and play for upside?
If you play fantasy football long enough you will find yourself in this rhetorical debate, and at some point, develop a case of decidophobia, that is, the fear of making decisions.
Specifically, it’s the fear of making the wrong decisions that drives...

Season To Date: 4-2 Houston Texans at Baltimore Ravens- The defending Super Bowl champs beat a bad Browns team last week in a low scoring contest. The Ravens look like they will have a mediocre season. Houston is a little underrated at this point. They are very balanced on offense and have a strong front seven on defense. Houston has two good running backs and...
