Michael Vick’s career has had more up and downs than a rollercoaster, but his last hurdle is a tough one. Philadelphia has begun the evaluation process, releasing Jason Babin and benching Vick for Nick Foles.
Vick has gone through a lot, but talent was never an issue, however, for the first time in his career, his physical ability is the biggest issue. One of the greatest running quarterbacks in NFL history now is fading faster than a cheap pair of jeans. However, Vick is handling his demotion with class and maturity.
“I’m a competitor, and I’ve always felt like and will continue to feel like I’m one of the best and can play at a high level,” Vick said, via Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News.
“I want to be out there, I want to play, but it’s just not the ideal situation right now, I have to accept my role, accept it like a man, and continue to find positives out of it.”
“That’s just the way things are right now,” Vick said. “I have to roll with the punches and deal with it, make the most of it, continue to work hard, try to get better, continue to help Nick out and continue to help this football team, do my job as a leader, regardless if I’m the starter or the third-string quarterback.”

Last week, we showed you an amazing catch from Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jason Avant but this catch from Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson might be the best of the year.
It happened in the third quarter of the Bills loss to the Seahawks as Johnson caught a pass that appeared to be going over his head with an incredible one-handed snag:

There was a ton of NFL football to absorb on Sunday, even with the Birds not playing. I found myself using NFL football to escape the headlines from tragedies in the U.S.A. and around the world. I also found myself in the vice-grip of writer's block.
To make it worse, there's a cold fog over the Delaware Valley today. Grim. It feels like the perfect atmosphere for a 4...
