According to Mike Freeman of CBS Sports, the Philadelphia Eagles will not release Michael Vick and will give him every opportunity to prove that he can still play at a high level. Eagles told Mike Vick he’s staying. Source says Vick will have opportunity to show if he can play. Philly Inquirer first reported this. — mike freeman (@realfreemancbs) February 6, 2013 We already know the Eagles weren’t going to release Vick right now.  Now we have to wonder if he’ll play under his current contract for the 2013 season.  If so, I can’t imagine him not being the starter.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();

  • I hear all the pundits about Vick and they are wrong! Vick is the absolute best option for the Eagles right now! You name one QB that could hold up under the hits Vick took the last two season! Foles played six games and was injured and out! Morningwig never called the offense to Vicks talents or strengths! Kelly on the other hand will run the ball and run plenty of run pass options! He will also get Vick a great OL and another big receiver like Bouldin or Vernon Davis which will completely kill defenses! Jackson, McCoy, Brown, Celek, Vick, Macklin and a big fast and strong receiver! Trust me Vick will light it up this year under Kelly's run option! I hear all that bs talk about Vick slowing down? He still runs a 4.37 fortywhich is flying for a QB! Vick was getting run down because of his indecisiveness due to always telling him to run and get hurt! Kelly will design plays where he will either hand off, pass or run quick and force defenses to play their lanes giving him time for big plays! If they get Alex Smith they still gonna have to pay! We have Vick, he's a better fit! Let's draft best OL, Corner Back, and Defense of End! Lets get a impact safety and big fast wide receiver!! Come on let's go Eagles!!! 2013 NFC CHAMPS!!!
  • I think there are a lot of haters by a lot people who could never hold a candle to mike vick. People always have something to say and are quick to put someone down. There is no way that your gonna tell me that Nick FOLES IS A better QB than Mike Vick,and how can you put the total blame on Mike for last years terrible season and when Nick Foles came in the same thing happened to him also.Now let's not get it confused i like Nike Foles and i think he is going to be a good QB but to thy own self be true ,tell the truth and shame the devil Mike Vick is a better QB and fit right now for this team.Ask the players not the commentators.
