Now this could just be another false story like the Bills one early today, but the buzz here in Pennsylvania right now(apparently it has been reported on a local CBS station also, so I will have to watch TV now) is that Vick has signed with the Eagles. I will let you know more if I hear anything else.

Michael Vick agrees to a 2-year deal with the Eagles. Thank God he is not in our division.

I think when Kolb went down that pretty much sealed it for the eagles....and their O-line is all busted up, maybe they just wanted someone who could run away from all the pressure the NFC East is gonna bring on 'em.

Anyone in your state burning Eagles jerseys yet? :lol:My office is full of Eagle fans, so I can't wait to hear their thoughts on this.

Of course, there is a Bills fan also in the office and he was jumping for joy when they signed Owens. So, the Eagle fans will likely only see the positive side of this signing.

Though, there is one guy that probably won't like this. lol. Should be fun tomorrow.

In what way could this possibly be good for McNabb? Unless you mean he might get traded to a better team.

52 int, 19 fumbles, and never above a 56.4% completion rating, and that was before a 2 year "break" from football......im all about Vick being in the same division.

Any Qb that has a completion average just barely above 50% is more than welcome to join any other team in our division, i support that.

Yea... they extended him to take a cap hit??? that doesnt make sense to me

its a 2 year contract.. one year with 6 games he cant play in im sure Vick isnt making Starter money,

Im excited to see week 7 though and see what they actually do with.

They can't keep him as a backup. When Vick starts lighting things up and makes the Pro Bowl, they will have to do something.

McNabb gets such a bad rap in Philly... yeah, thanks for 5 NFC championship games and 1 superbowl appearance D-Nabb... we really appreciate it..lol.. scumbags.. He shouldnt be worried anyhow, its not like Vick is a good QB anyways... Thye probably will install some form of wildcat now

Look at his w/L and rushing yards...

3.8k rushing yards...yet more fumbles during much fewer attempts then LT(i mention him because he was taken the same year and played more years). Yet the most passing yards he's had in a single season is 2.9k.

As a QB your expected to pass. Vick was not able to do that well before he took a 2 year hiatus. Was he able to run? Sure. Yet for being one of the 2 true franchise QB(meaning having a front office burn high draft picks/free agency to build an offense around you) he very much did not live up to his potential.....and since then has been in federal prison. Sorry, i wouldnt have lost sleep playing against him.

As a Qb that has trouble completing passes(53.8% career), not to mention eating close to 200 sacks, I was all about Vick signing with the Bills/Jets/Pats.

dont really know what the eagles plans are with him yet, but not a bad signing. low risk high reward type. if they do install the wildcat imagine vick and mcnabb on the field at same time. sounds good.

You need to look past statistics to really appreciate Vick's skills. You can talk about not losing sleep, but defensive coordinators had to plan around him, and he would still break loose.

This is a quarterback that ran for over 1000 yards in a season. How does that not complement the Eagles?

ok... the NFL counted his Fumbles From every time he touches the ball,
he has held the ball more than LT, im sorry that you over looked that

LT fumbled 8 times his rookie year =(

LT is a running back, Micheal Vick is a QB...

if were going to welcome people who we want on other teams in our division
How bout we Welcome Jamar Fletcher to New England,
at least hes Not a proven winner

I really do wonder why the Eagles did this. I mean, with the offense is looking quite good at all positions. Why bother bringing in the added media attention and baggage that a player like Vick carries.

This is a totally different situation. Vick was convicted and payed his debt to society, OJ and Michael Jackson got away with it. And I support Vick now that he paid his dues, I never supported OJ or Michael. Killing a human or molesting a child is unforgivable. The man fought some dogs, paid the price, and more than likely isn't gonna do it again. So get over it, quit whining like these pathetic animal rights protestors, and watch some damn football.

What I dont understand about stuff like this is why does it take jail time and millions of dollars for him to realize he was doing something wrong? I hear that all the time, "He has paid his debt to society" How? By not being a part of it? By losing all his money? This guy should be kicked out of the league.

Should be fun to see though, I am sure there are plenty of players out there that just want to **** his world up.

I watched Vick like everyone else, if you wanted to make a great highlight video he was the man. Yet in between those highlights he was not that great. Any coach that was brought to Atlanta was expected to improve Vick's passing. If this was another moblie QB that was a successful passer, Steve Young'ish, then id probably worry, but that isnt the situation.

Never once said this wouldnt complement the Eagles, just said i wouldnt have freaked out if he came to the division...heck, i probably would have welcomed it. I was foaming at the mouth when Favre was traded, so why not another QB that turns the ball over.

Look at what Matt Ryan did last year with the same receiving targets(save for Alge Crumpler): higher completions rating, More yards. And that was in his rookie season.

He paid his debt to society for that crime. He was still caught for knowingly giving STD's to another human being, and pretty much everyone around him was busted for selling drugs out of his car(on top of the little incident right there in Miami Airport).

So before being busted for the completely illegal(and immoral) dog fighting ring he got away with plenty of crimes, he just couldnt run from this one. He's a scumbag.

Funny that u would lump these three people. OJ we all know about him but Michael Jackson was not ound guilty of anything. If he did do anything then the biggest scumbags are the parents that let him get away with it and took money to be quiet.

As for Vick he still has not killed any human beings. Personally I dont have issure with supporting Vick to get a second chance. I dont think this one act makes anyone pathetic.
