Though it's nothing new, quarterback Michael Vick's ability to stay healthy -- or lack thereof -- has been widely-discussed as of late. Proving just how popular this particular topic has become, even the man who inhabits the White House has joined the conversation.
Per the Philadelphia Inquirer, President Barack Obama talked football with cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha at a fundraising event on Monday, and relayed an ever-important message to the Eagles' prized investment.
"Tell Vick to slide," Obama said to Asomugha.
Vick quickly got wind of the prez's advice, responding shortly after via Twitter.
Whether he actually heeds his words remains to be seen, though Vick would be wise to. During his nine NFL seasons, Vick's played a full 16-game schedule just once. His willingness to scramble and stubbornness to fight for the extra yard has led to several self-inflicted maladies that not even ObamaCare could tackle.
