Michael Vick has one more shot with the Philadelphia Eagles.  Vick knows Chip Kelly’s offense fits his skill set, so he reconstructed his contract and now has a one year potentially $10 million deal. Vick has to stay healthy, and the $10 million question is how.  Vick was on 94 WIP radio yesterday, and told Michael Barkann, that prayer and training will help him get through the season. “We’ll see. I don’t know what else to you? I can’t give you no explanation for that. It’s probably one of the toughest questions you’ve asked me since we’ve been talking. I don’t know. I think just to train—train hard and pray to God. That’s gonna be my motto. Hopefully I can sustain 16 games. If I’m out there—go out there and put forth your best effort and see what happens. That’s it,” Vick said. “We also have to realize, and I think you guys need to take into account that I was hit 170 times last year before I even went down. That’s the most I ever been hit before I even got hurt. So, I kept getting up. My body was trained and conditioned to go the distance last year, it was just the fact that I got a head injury and that kind of took me out. That was kind of an out of the blue concussion. It just happened. Other than that, I got hit a lot and I got up, and I’m going to do the same thing this year. I’ll get hit a lot, I’ll get up. That’s what it’s all about. I mean, you just gotta train, you gotta prepare yourself, you gotta condition yourself, and the good thing is I know how to do that.” If Vick can stay healthy and make good choices with the ball, Vick could have a marvelous 2013 season.  That’s a big if.

No Witness to Redemption

Warning: This is a very graphic post about what goes into dogfighting. It is pretty graphic at certain points. So, be warn.
