Mike Vick and Chad Ochocinco played a game of Fifa online tonight. Here is how it went down:

First thing that I noticed was that Ocho scored his first and only goal right after Mike Vick tweeted his first goal. Coincidence? I think not. Gotta pause the game Mike.

Second, and far more important thing that I noticed about this Fifa match of the century was the fact these these two clowns ended the game in a tie. Really? A tie? Nobody ends a Fifa game in a tie! You start another game and play golden goal. Doesn’t matter how long it takes, or how far past your bedtime you have to stay up. You determine that winner on the field, or, at the very least, you do a shootout a somebody wins the cheap way. It’s still better than ending in a tie.

Nobody doubts that the Eagles have had leadership issues this season. They’re the most talented team in the league, but also the least motivated, and a lot of the blame has to fall on Mike Vick. After all, he’s the franchise quarterback. Personally, I want my team leader to be the most competitive guy I can find, whether it’s in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl or extra time of a Fifa game. Do you think Michael Jordan would ever have settled for a TIE in Fifa? God no.  He would have held a knife to your head and threatened to sign you to the Bobcats before he ever would have stopped playing a 1-1 game.

I sincerely hope that Vick challenges Ocho to a rematch ASAP. It would be an important first step towards the Eagles playoff run in these last wo weeks of the NFL season.
