Mike Vick will fall back to earth, and they will miss the playoffs. I don't give a damn what anyone says you don't anoint any team that does not have a legitimate pocket passer. Vick is an athlete that plays QB last year he snuck up on teams this year they will figure him out, and shut him and the Eagles down. ESPN is having a wet dream talking about how the anointed one Vick has gotten all these great players to play for the Eagles becuase of him. Almost alluding to the fact that race is playing a role in this, and that how all these players are drawn to vick and his greatness. Give me a damn break. The Eagles are no better than any other team, and will fail to live up to their expectations. Finally their fat ass coach will regret trading Kevin kolb, and picking up Vince Young. His days in Philly are numbered mark my words.
Yeah, I'm not sure i've detected even a whiff of race in the media's coverage of and love affair with Philly. I think it has more to do with the fact that they were a really dangerous team last year and since then only added arguably the best cornerback in football, a powerful and experienced DT, a former pro-bowl caliber RB, another electric young CB with huge upside, and another dynamic QB as a backup.
Well their already breaking down their wins and losses don't tell me race is not involved when claerly Michael vick isn't even in the same category with today's great QB's. Why is Philly getting all of these great players? Sal Palontonio about had an on air orgasm talking about vick, and how all the great players want to play for the anointed one. It is sickening really. Some idiots believe they could go undefeated. My point you have a better chance of winning with this team if you replaced Vick with another top QB. Vick will be the reason they fail he is not or will never be a very good consitant pro QB like the great ones. Replace him with Brady, manning, Rogers, Rivers Brees I could go one these guys are real QB's not athletes that play the position. Their is a big diiference in this. Was Marino a better athlete than Vick no, but was he a better QB hell yeah and probably still is that's the difference I am refferring too.
I still don't see what race has to do with it. You didn't really break down exactly what role you think it's playing in this situation. And the one example you gave is of a white guy praising the abilities of a black QB. Not sure how that proves your point. And everything you said after that about Vick never being a consistent pro-style pocket-passing QB may all be true, but all that I think is going on here is that Vick is coming off an amazing, prolific season and if he plays that way this season, the Eagles have the potential of being scary good. I don't think that's a particularly absurd notion.
No one in the media will dare say race would play a factor in all these supposed great players coming to play in Philly becauuse every one has to be politically correct. But their have been hints in the media, and I for the most part think the Eagles will fail miserably. I guess we will all see for ourselves outside of the QB position i would take our roster over the Eagles because our front seven will be much better than theirs, and our secondary is not too shabby either. But we are going nowhere because Henne is a bum, and Vick is great, and the Eagles will fly into the super bowl hog wash. I can't wait for this team to fail.
Time will tell. Vick did look pretty good last year and elevated his game. Love'em or hate him if he builds on his success from last year he will do well. I drove from DC to Philly on last week and caught a Vick interview on Philly radio. I was really impressed w/ the guys attitude.
Sorry to give some folks here a heart attack by saying something positive about the guy.
I don't think Phillu will win it all because historically the eagles always have a chink in their armour somewhere.
Mike Vick last year was the Chris Johnson of the year before. No one expected much, and he snuck up on people and exploded with stats, and like johnson this year teams will have his number and aim to stop him
"It's been fun to get the reaction of visiting coaches to the color of their locker room. Most don't notice it, but those that do are in trouble. . . . When I talk to an opposing coach before a game and he mentions the pink walls, I know I've got him. I can't recall a coach who has stirred up a fuss about the color and then beat us.” Hayden Fry
Wow Mike Vick made the cover of Madden this year yep everybody is promoting him on race. Funny shady you hate Vick, Cam, VY, McNabb I think the race thing is in your head and sometimes I really wonder where your head is easy guesse though.
I don't hate Vick or McNabb or anyone else that plays the game. I am pointing out how one teamn is made the darling of the league by one sports outlet, and how were made a joke with a garbage QB and a lousy in over his head coach. Thats all why is all I would like to know has this once proud franchise with many good players become the butt of jokes, and the laughing stock of the league 2-14 really thats all. This shit is so unfair you would think that we have no talent while the Eagles have gone back, and added every pro bowler to their roster. It's sickening really.
I think the same too me if not more of the same disgust killing animals is not about race or ethnicity it's about the treatment of one of God's creatures. That has been subjected to what amounts to torture for someone else's pleasure. Dog fighting is a very big problem in Wisconsin last time I checked not many blacks living in Packer country just saying.
The Eagles are the popular team right now with more story lines, that's all. An ex con who came in as the third string qb ended up the starter and had a damn ood year. QB controversy w/ the other 2 who were traded. Great free agent pick ups this off season. Lots of expectation for this team and will they meet it. Tons of story lines w/ the Eagles right now. Popularity rules the media in this country and the Eagles are popular right now. That's all it is.
BS...1st he runs to much...if you do anything over time you get better...so he learned how to play from the pocket..just give him credit last year he matured as a Qb..if you dont like him for personal reasons ok but all he did was study his offense(which he never did in Atl) and got more effective weapons..all Vick did was get better then he was...
