Eagles Pursue Michael Vick?

by Bob Cunningham (Columnist) Written on August 10, 2009
Bob Cunningham

Today, the Philadelphia Eagles officially signed on their coaching intern, former Arena League quarterback Matt Nagy, to give the Eagles a third quarterback with Kolb being ruled out for the preseason opener this Thursday.

The Eagles released wide receiver Brandon Robinson to make room for Nagy, who will probably be cut and go back to being a coaching intern after the game, and Robinson will most likely re-join the team at that point.

The rumor mill went crazy today, as everyone knew it would the first time a starting or backup quarterback went down with an injury.

The "Mike Vick to Philly" rumors started swirling and may not stop until Kolb is officially back from his knee injury.

Jeff Lurie said during his "State of the Team" address last weekend that Vick "deserves a second chance," but that it will not be with Philadelphia.

That, of course, won't end the rumors, as it's coming out now that some teams who have publicly said no to Vick, are privately looking into the opportunity to bring in the former face of the entire National Football League.

I'm a personal believer that Vick deserves another shot, and I also believe that if the Eagles brought him in, he could be a weapon. However, I do not believe for a second that Mike Vick will ever be a Philadelphia Eagle.

You don't know that about any player until he's got the ball in his hands. Or until he throws a block

First, as a back-up QB.

I think he could play receiver, run in the wildcat, run and throw from the wildcat. Special teams?

Show up and do his job and keep his mouth shut is the first thing. Do what is asked of thee.

Work hard. Be humble.

It remains to be seen. The man he was had no character. He was, truly, a thug.

But who is to say what a man can be?

I know a person can lie because he got caught and because it profits him to say the convenient thing. But what if he has turned a corner and changed his ways?

Sounds like a good idea to me. A friend of mine lives in the Philly area. She has her doctorate and taught sciences in both college and Philly high school classes. She gave all the links to the sponsors of the Philly Eagles, as well as to the team. I did send a message to the team about what I think about that thug.

She told me that he was into dog fighting since he was 9 years old. I don't buy his sudden seeing the light. I think it's more losing his millions, bankruptcy, prison, etc. I wouldn't trust him for a second. Hope I'm wrong, but I doubt it. A thug is a thug is a thug.

Maybe he should have done community service after he got out----something like cleaning the kennels at the local shelters.

Went back to the post from my friend who lives in the Philly area. I'll post this link, but not all the links to the sponsors. That's a little too DU'ish.

Hi all -- whether you are an Eagles fan or not, would you please comment to the Eagles about them signing Vick on? Personally, we will no longer watch Eagles games nor go to their games (we have been to some of them).

We realize that he has paid his debt to society -- but you all know as well as I do, that if any of us that are "licensed" by their state (i.e. teachers) did what he did, we could NEVER work in that profession again.

For those of you outside of the Phila area -- tell the Eagles that when they play your team you will not attend or watch it on TV.


I did exactly that (wrote to the Eagles). The Rams have been doing so poorly that I could get free tickets to their games from my company, when everyone is so disgusted that they don't want to even pay for parking to see them. I particularly would never attend a game with the Phillies----except maybe to be obnoxious and boo Vick.

His killing the dogs that wouldn't fight bothers me the most. I'd like to think in the US that we're more humane in our treatment of animals (and also people). The Spanish hang their galgos (greyhounds) when they're finished with them or kill them in Vick-type ways. I'd hope that we would be better, but in the case of Vick, not so.

The Humane Society of Missouri currently has over 400 pit bulls in custody, taken from a huge pit bull ring that was busted here. Vick's dogs at least were fortunate enough to be taken over by Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah. I've been there and it's a wonderful organization, well funded and committed to walking the walk, not just BS talk. The local case has more dogs, equally poorly treated, but no big names involved, just your run of the mill thugs. Who knows what will happen to those poor animals?

As I said, a thug is a thug is a thug, whether a well known thug or a garden variety thug. It's a shame Vick couldn't take advantage of his chance to get out of that life when he hit the big time.

He has one good thing going for him and that is his new friend and manager, Tony Dungy, ex Colts head coach, who will try to keep him on the straight and narrow. He could not have picked a better mentor but everything he does or says will be watched. We will see if you can take the thug out of the thug.

What pisses me off is people who put pets above human beings, I hope all that are against Vick come out just as hard when that Receiver for the browns (name escapes me ATM) comes back to football.


I dislike Vick and see no reason for him to come to my team.

I dont think him coming to the Eagles will improve this team but if it did I couldn't care if he sacrificed kittens. I want a damn SB win.


The owner of the team does not want him but I have a feeling the NFL forced, prodded etc the eagles in to taking him. I think they did it to make it easier for the next team to take him. We have no need for a back up QB. When the owner had a press conference on the subject he looked like he didn't want Vick on the team.

Not really a good comparison.

Stallworth's was an accident. He didn't get drunk and decided to drive with the intention of killing someone.

Vick knowingly made the decision to commit his litany of crimes.

A better example might be if somehow Rae Carruth got out of jail and tried for reinstatement. I expect he would receive the same warm welcome Vick did.

I don't understand the outrage over the morality and the man's ability to earn a living.

Plenty of athlete scumbags predate Vick. And when people say "I would be fired if I did that at my job". Well guess what:

You would probably be fired for rape (Kobe).
Or chocking your boss (Spreewell)
Or even a DUI (LaRussa).

Most of these guys run around on their wives or have six kids by five women. Where is the morality bar? At what point is it crossed and the outrage is genuine?

I'm not pissed that he's on the Eagles even though he ran a dog fighting operation, I'm pissed he's on the Eagles because I think he blows.

You missed the point that Stallworth was an at fault accident while Carruth and Vick planned their crimes.

You mean to tell me everyone that's driven drunk went out with the plan of ending someone life? Not nearly the same thing as Rae Carruth who paid someone to murder his girlfriend.

I will agree that some folks I've met after years of volunteering might not have the best people sklls but prefer animals. Wait, seems the dogs I've had over the years are more loyal and kinder than some of the folks I've worked wth and just maybe on some of the boards. :D

Have you ever sped? Have you ever drove while very sleepy? I know that's not as bad as driving drunk, but it is still irresponsible and dangerous.


This is my take on the two cases and why Vick deserved more time out of the league than Stallworth. For the record, I think the commish handled them both well.

Vick was invovled (ran) a criminal enterprise for years. When word started getting out he was approached by Arthur Blank and lied. Then he was questined by Roger Goodell and lied. Then he went to court and lied. Only when everyone else was turning states evidence, did he own up to his crimes. Even then, he only told just enough. The judge even said in his sentenceing that he was lying about how deep his invovlment actually went, and that is why his sentence was so steep. And while waiting to be sentenced he tested positive for marijuana. His problem wasn't "a mistake", it was a character problem. Maybe he has learned his lesson and turned his life around. I hope so. It's hard for me to think he has though. It's hard for me to forget that this man is capable of holding a dog under water until it drowns, hanging a dog from a tree, and electrocuting dogs with jumper cables. That is a sick mind, not a bad decision.


Stallworth made a horrible mistake in judgment which resulted in the death of a pedestrian, worst possible result from bad judgment. He stayed at the scene of the accident and has been nothing but cooperative with officials from the beginning. He has shown true remorse for his actions, and has agreed to become the breadwinner for this family from this point forward. He can't undo what he has done and he knows that, but he has done all he can to make it right to the family left behind. If he is banned from football for life, that will seriously limit his earning ability to continue taking care of the victim's family.


Again, I completely agree with the decisions the commissioner has made in both of these cases.


As far as why the Eagles signed him. Let's not pretend that McNabb doeasn't have a history of getting injured, and Kolb went down to injury in training camp. All I can say is you better hope McNabb stays healthy this year, because when Vick comes in, you'll have to cut the playbook in half. He's not what you'd call a cerebral QB.

Maybe you will learn one day that knowingly getting into a car drunk is more then just a "fault" accident, maybe a little bit of willful negligence or disregard for human life etc.

Did anyone watch the 60 minutes interview last night? I missed it (too much time on the couch watching the PGA), but just heard the interviewer (James Brown) on Dan Patrick's radio show. By the accounts I heard, it was fairly well done, although the interview took place before Vick signed with the Eagles.

Didn't watch, didn't care to. Getting caught fighting dogs was the best thing he did for the Falcons. Especially when Matt Ryan landed in our lap.

I'm just surprised Dallas didn't take Vick, they have taken every other thug in the NFL...

:cool:I am as anti-Vick as they get. I don't like the Vick family in general. So when I say that Mike has paid his debt and deserves a second chance, it doesn't come easily to me. His entire family is as worhtless as they get. Mike didn't stand a chance of being decent. Maybe with Dungy on his @$$, he will straighten out his life.

Nah, there are still others Dallas could pick up. :rolleyes:

I'm a Cowboy fan, but I am also a realist.

As long as Homo....I mean Romo keeps his mind in the playbook, instead of panties, they might have a chance of doing something.

He is all hype(homo)when push comes to shove late in the season he folds :)
