The Fake Football:
Is it better to be lucky, or better to be good? Is it better to play it safe, or is it better to take risks and play for upside?
If you play fantasy football long enough you will find yourself in this rhetorical debate, and at some point, develop a case of decidophobia, that is, the fear of making decisions.
Specifically, it’s the fear of making the wrong decisions that drives our disease. It’s comparable to the good vs. evil debate suggesting that you can’t have one without the other. Obviously, if there is no wrong to decision to be made, there can be no fear. Such indecisiveness is the very foundation of our yearlong start/sit conundrums.
The variables that translate into our final rosters can almost be overwhelming. Is he healthy? Is he injury prone? Who does he play? Is he a better play than the hypothetical sleeper on our bench? Were the numbers he put up last week a fluke? How likely are they to be repeated? Should I trade him now that he’s hot?

AROUND THE WEB
Mike Vick tweeted seven words Tuesday night, and it sure sounded like trouble.
Can't believe Clay about to snitch. Smh
-- Mike Vick (@MikeVick) September 18, 2013 Uh-oh. What was this drama about?
Was one of Vick's homeboys droppin' a dime on him over some illicit activities?
Was the Packers' Clay Matthews, who just got fined $15K for a hit on 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick...
I’m not sure test driving sports cars hours before a big game can be classified as irresponsible, but if you’re the quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles, being photographed test driving cars can definitely cause an uproar.
Crossing Broad is reporting that Michael Vick allegedly was test driving Lamborghini’s on Interstate 95 hours before the Eagles huge matchup against...
Allegedly Mike Vick went out and test drove a Lambo just hours before his team was set to take on the Chiefs. On a short week of practice and preparation, it doesn’t seem like a good idea to be doing such things, but who I am to judge. I just know it was BY FAR Vick’s worst performance of the season. I can’t imagine Peyton Manning test driving Buicks hours before playing...
Is anyone actually surprised by this? Eagles’ fans fighting in the stands? Seems like it would happen at every game. Bleed Green! See the video below:

Mike Vick Has His Own Wave Brush Line
Marcus Vick has been encouraged to stay off Twitter, if not to protect himself from making poor choices, then at least to protect his older brother, Michael Vick, from having to deal with extra silliness (or stupidity).
But seeing the Internet attack the elder Vick again during a Monday night loss was apparently too much for Marcus Vick. After going off the deep end last year in...
Michael Vick has been the guy a lot of young NFL players looked up to when they were growing up.
Vick left Virginia Tech when a lot of the young players in the NFL were just early teenagers, and I’m sure it’s been a dream for most of them to play with or against him.
One of those players was Chiefs star defensive back Eric Berry. The former Tennessee Vol’s safety grew up...

Funny Manning Brother Wedgie Cartoon
Marcus Vick is known for a couple of things, besides being the little brother to Michael Vick, and neither are flattering. One, he famously stomped on Elvis Dumervil way back when in college. Two, he says stupid things on Twitter,…Read more →
San Diego Chargers outside linebacker Dwight Freeney believes that neither Michael Vick or any quarterback will last playing the position in Chip Kelly's offence.Freeney said in an interview with Erik Kuselias due to be aired Thursday night on NBCSN's Pro Football Talk, that: "The problem is with that offence, to be honest with you, is the quarterback position and...
No quarterbacks in the league will profess their appreciation for their offensive line's play more than the Philadelphia Eagles Michael Vick and the Chicago Bears Jay Cutler. These two elite quarterbacks have started the year with a bang with clutch performances and big numbers. This is after a year where both players took a pounding and played well below their capabilities....
It didn’t take long for NFL defenses to figure out how to stop Chip Kelly. Actually, Philadelphia Eagles QB Mike Vick did it for them. Vick threw two interceptions, including one returned for a TD by Kansas City Chiefs DB Eric Berry. Vick was also sacked five times as Kansas City’s defense disrupted Kelly’s read-option offense. And Vick fumbled the ball away after being sacked...
The Philadelphia Eagles have looked unstoppable at times in their first two games of the season under Chip Kelly. Their offense is lightning-fast and looks like it has enough talent to light up almost any opposing defense. Michael Vick has been a major part of that, but it only makes sense to wonder if he […]
Week Three Rankings
At wide receiver DeSean Jackson has seen himself rise all the way to WR1 territory. He looks almost unstoppable with Vick in Chip Kelly’s offense and despite racking up nine receptions for 193 yards he left over 130 yards on the field on passes that he barely missed corralling in. DeSean was always a special talent but is really breaking out in this new system...
We have one of those games where one team is doing everything it can to lose and the other can’t even enjoy it because they’re refusing to capitalize on any advantage. At least the Eagles have the excuse of playing three games in the span of 11 days, which one whole day fewer than the Chiefs latest stretch. Significant!The Chiefs opened the game with two special teams gifts by...
